Pickers has a fantastic and unique concept for a hidden object game. You visit different cluttered locations and look around for items of interest, and then haggle with the owners to buy the items you've selected. Each of the objects you find can then be marked up and then resold in your own shop. You can also have the objects appraised or restored or sold at auction for a fee, but you could end up making a tidy profit. You can also pair up related objects, sometimes from picks in different locations entirely, and combine them for an even more valuable item. Also, each day customers want different "hot" items, so picking in those categories can definitely increase your profits.

In addition to hunting for bargains, each location has a special area where you do a more traditional hidden object game. The premise is that you earn a bonus for finding all the items on a customer's request list, and then the mini-game proceeds with you finding objects in the scene off a list of words. Success rewards you with a item, usually one in hot demand, that you can then sell in your shop with the rest of your stuff.

If you ever found yourself watching reality "cash for treasures" tv programs like American Pickers, or any of the various storage wars or pawn shop or antiques related shows, you'll find this game to be pretty interesting and a lot of fun.

The only downside is that there are only 12 locations to pick from, and once you've unlocked them all playing becomes more of a memory game than one of luck or skill. I'd imagine that by your second or third playthrough, this would get too repetitive to be a challenge.

Have you ever thought about being an antique dealer? I don’t mean on the high end, buying and selling priceless, authenticated works of art. I mean sifting through people’s attics and garages, trying to find some expensive item that’s been mistaken for a piece of junk. If so, then there’s a good chance Pickers is a game you s hould check out!

This is an unusual but obvious entrant into the "hidden object" puzzle genre. Instead of the focus being on solving a mystery or gathering clues, Pickers has you sifting through people's collected hoards in various locales throughout the country for no other reason than profit. The main campaign of the game is fairly straightforward. You have thirty days to find the creme de la creme of second hand collectible goods, and at the end of each day try to turn a profit on what you’ve picked (hence the title of the game). There’s a huge load of junk to sift through, along with a wide variation of locations, but you can only purchase seven items each day. The challenge is to pick the best items at the hottest times, buying low and selling high!

Graphically, Pickers does it's job pretty well. This kind of game really requires clear and eyecatching graphics, not only for presentation, but also to make the task of visually searching for interesting items as easy on the eyes as possible. Every item you come across has some beautiful 2D detail, and there’s some pleasure to be had in mentally cataloging each and every item you come across, trying to figure out which object in the horde will be your best bet or match the different categories. The environments and characters are well-designed as well, hovering somewhere on the border between realistic and cartoony. Suffice to say, the game is easy on the eyes – or as easy as it can be when you are, quite literally, digging through other people’s trash. The gameplay in Pickers is really simple. As previously noted, each day you can pick a maximum of seven items from a very wide variety of items and location. You’ll have to negotiate with the item’s owner, trying to haggle them down as low as they’ll go without upsetting them...which could lead to a temporary inability to deal with them further. Afterwards, you can decide whether to risk your item in an auction, netting a fraction of it's price/worth...or price it for sale in your store - where NPCs will try to haggle you down from your initial list price. If you’re the sort of person who just loves to play the auction game in MMOs, this may actually be a title to look at.

The interface and controls are really easy to learn. Honestly, it’s hard to screw up. If you’re interested in an item, click it and get a little information about it. If you dislike it, just remove it from your inventory and back to the pile it goes. The haggling and price-setting is equally direct, and chances are there will never be a moment where you’re at a loss for what you should do next. In addition to the general polish this game has, there’s also a huge variety of locations to explore and items to consider. It’s conceivably possible that you’ll eventually have memorized just about every item in the game, but seriously… that would require quite a lot of play in this game, and by that point you can hardly say you didn’t get your money’s worth.

Oddly enough considering the game’s concept, Pickers has turned out to be quite a bargain itself. While the gameplay has a very tight focus - sifting through items to buy and sell may wear on some gamers – if the prospect of hunting for treasure in a marketplace instead of a dungeon appeals to you, this is definitely one game to check out.

A great spin on the hidden object games. Most of the gameplay time consists of quite the opposite of pixel-hunting. Everything becomes clickable and it is your task to find something click-worthy (resellable). It is quite relaxing, as the experience is much less streamlined and you have more than one way to overcome a bunch of different and diverse challenges that the game presents you with.
Less tediousness, more fun to play. Recommended!

I went in thinking this is a HOG (Hidden Object Game) but nope. Basically you go around the map visiting different places to find items. You can simply pick up items that are lying around or choose to do a HOG scene (optional) which nets you a free item. Items you selected can then be purchased (or haggled) from the owners and all of them have their own categories. Getting all your picks from the day's hot item categories nets you a cash bonus. All these items are then placed in your item shop. You get to price items, list them, haggle with customers, auction off stuff etc. The fancy thing here is that some items can be combined with others to form a neat combi that sells for a huge profit (like 95% of the time) eg, jukebox + records.

It doesn't sound too bad on paper but in reality when you are playing, the duration is too long. Every game is 30 days and each day you visit locations, pick items, buy and sell etc. The repetition is simply too much and imo it would have been better at like 15 days max. You also get to collect keys while in game and upon collecting 40 of them (out of 60), the unlimited HOG mode is unlocked and that perhaps extends the game length of this title...just by a little. Overall, not a bad game (nice ideas!) but too repetitive for the most of us.

Get it cheep, not much replayability. But fun for a couple run-throughs.
