REVIEW
Sometimes it feels like if you’ve played one hidden-object-puzzle/point-and-click adventure game, then you’ve played them all. And it is true that many of them are just clones of one another. Then Pickers comes along and with it comes a welcome breath of fresh air for the genre. This game takes the theme of hidden-object-puzzles and mixes it with simulation elements to create a remarkably novel experience that will definitely appease any fan of the genre, and likely those who are usually on the fence as well.

Pickers throws out the tired and cliché story usually attached to games in the genre, and just builds an enjoyable game around hidden-object-puzzles. The concept of the game is influenced by popular reality TV shows like Storage Wars and Pawn Stars. The objective is to go to various locations and pick out certain items and buy them; then return to your shop and sell them for profit. Repeat this for a set amount of cycles and make enough profit by the end to win. It sounds so simple… and it is… but it is very addictive and fun.

You will go to the different locations and notice that there are actually hundreds of items you can click on and buy. But you will have to be careful to not buy junk. You need to find the good stuff (like rare comics and autographed baseballs) among the nonsense (like common tools and furniture). But what is especially fun about the game is the fact there is no “right” answer or set path; you can buy and sell whatever you want as you play through. That said, there are elements to the gameplay that will guide your choices, like a rotating “hot” category that will guarantee profitability.

Pickers is definitely a nifty little game that has a certain unique identity and charm. I highly recommend it to established fans of the genre, and I also believe the more casual fans of the genre will find it enjoyable as well. If you fall into those groups, it is absolutely worth your consideration.

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.

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.
