This is a practical adaptation of the classic hidden-object-game (HOG). It has sufficient merit as an auction simulator aswell.

What I really liked about Pickers was the realistic nature of it. There are REAL collectible references to historics events and culture in the items you see. The HOG aspects work well with this because you have to think hard if you are a real-life collector...you have to think about what you are looking for, or else be clicking on absolutely EVERYTHING. Items have very small hitboxes, deterring random clicking. If you aren't a real-life collector, well...good luck!!! Haha!

What really disappointed me was the NPCs ASK you to haggle them. It really breaks the tone of the game. NPCs are clingy with their items and will be close to kicking you out of their shops if you lowball your offers to them. Asking you to haggle just doesn't fit here!! Another thing I don't like is if you have bad eyesight (like myself), you're forced to cheat and use the object scanner.

Overall it's a great game and with extra content, there's plenty replay value

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

I really have started to enjoy this game more every time I play it. You are not just 'running around the country' collecting random items to sell for top dollar at your own store. It is more like one of those old seek and find picture books you could find in a library at an elementary school. Wonderful graphics, not too hard to see every detail on most objects. Also, you can select the object you are interested in to read a tiny bit more about it, as well as see how it looks. Bartering is rather easy (depending on the person's mood and momentary mindset, of course), and if you don't want to wait for items to sell in the shop, you can appraise them & send them off to auction! A good concept and a simple game to wind down with at the end of the day.

Well, I didn't expect to actually play this game, but I did and to be quite honest I enjoyed the small portion of playtime I had. The graphics are neat and the concept of the game is quite a new and interesting idea. It reminds me of shows like the American Pickers or Pawn Stars, or Youtubers like The Game Chasers.

However, the music in this game isn't really the best. I know it's a small point to make out, almost nitpicking as a result, but it's practically the most annoying thing in the game. Another thing I realised early on is that it's very difficult to make a loss in profit, I even TRIED but I apparently got a jackpot item which sold for $9,000. The game does have a limited number of locations to visit and the sessions only last for 30 Days. Which is reasonable, but it doesn't take long to get through it and then get bored. I tried out the game on Zen mode where there isn't any competition because I wanted to see what functions the game has and this is what I found out in the process.

It's a point and click adventure without the adventure part. Especially when you have to find all the items. It reminds me of a game released on PC. Coronation Street and the Missing HotPot Recipie. The same two to three things over and over again. Don't get me wrong, it's enjoyable, but it turns into a pattern and not a good pattern at that.

Pickers is a hidden-object game that also combines a bit of memorization with simulated auction strategy. There is also an inventory system used largely for allowing you to combine pieces into one auction item.

In terms of replayability, after beating the game, I suspect that most might give it another play-through or a partial play-through and be done with it. Once you learn how to get ahead in the auction game, it really devolves into a pure hidden-object game.

The game probably should have implemented a drive-time to locations which would have added a bit more difficulty but would have increased the lasting appeal. Adding a time-management aspect would have sweetened the reward for knowing where to go.

7 of 10, and a high quality time-waster. I am not a hidden object game fan, but enjoyed this game for at least a good 8 hours or so.
