Look, we are simple folk.

When I say "we", I mean of course my brethren, the Hidden Object Game people (or "hog people" for short).

We don't ask for much, just pretty-ish environments in which we can look around for misc. objects from a laundry list (such as: manacles, a whip, candles, an Xbox One console, heavy-duty plastic tarps, a wooden horse, tax forms, a ball gag) to click on. And that's enough to content us, really.

Sadly the art in this is pretty abysmal. Objects are resized in a way that does not make sense relative to each other; likewise, objects are fuzzy that should be in focus and conversely. The photos that the art is sourced from are pretty ugly/dull, and garish colour filters are applied liberally to make matters worse.

I understand that this was done in an effort to make the object hunting a bit more challenging, but the combined "eyesore power" of all these techniques used at the same time is just too much.

There's a game show conceit in Discovery! A Seek and Find Adventure, and that's at least a novel way to frame the different environments. They bungled the meat of the game though, letting us hog people down.

I am missing some suspense!

Sorry, this is one of the games that gave Hidden Object Titles a bad name. Literally it's a "Stack one HOG scene after another and make a superficial story about it" - Who don't like to be abroad, but this is styled like a gameshow and overcrowded with searchable objects.

Furthermore some objects don't seem to work correctly and the additional features of the game like achievements and characters are also only a little additional suggar instead of a cherry on a piece of pie.

I wouldn't recomend this game since it grows boring really fast, even with the game-show theme it's boring. This game is no masterpiece and on a 1 to 10 scale it will not even reach 3 points in my opinion - the artworks are also nothing special.

Buyer beware, even though I didn't encounter gamebreaking bugs (playing 30 minutes) it is far too expensive, far too boring and of course far too vanilla ... you might as well take a burger and nail it to your knee, it is exactly as painful.

I've played this one a lot, to engage the top level of my brain while I'm trying to figure out something else with the other parts of my brain. It's fun, a little mindless, but not in a bad way.

Pre-Release Review
I thought I would enjoy this game a lot, since I really like games that have you search for hidden objects, or find the differences between two pictures. But this game is hard. Objects are so well hidden, that you regularly have to use the Hint button (at no real cost). I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Probably a good thing, but THIS hard... I'm not sure.

Anyhow, I guess it can be fun with a couple of friends, but if you're playing alone, you basically have all the time in the world. That doesn't make it any easier, but it also doesn't make it any more fun. Still, you can't find a similar game like this on Steam, so if you're into these games this one is a must own.

[Rating: 67/100]

The difference between this game other Hidden Object games is that in this game you'll be playing in a some sort of game show. It's fun at first but bores pretty quickly in my opinion. The only reason I spend 4 hours with Discovery! is because i've owned this for quite a long time.

I wouldn't recommend it.
