Hidden object games have come a long way from their iSpy/Highlights inspired roots, branching off from simply searching for random objects in a scene of junk into something more akin to a casual adventure game. Angelica Weaver is an exceptional example of this, blending traditional adventure and HOG gameplay into an enjoyably ridiculous murder mystery, all held together with impressively high production values.

Catch Me When You Can follows Chicago detective Angelica Weaver, on the case for a serial killer that seems to be copying a series of murders that occurred a hundred years ago. For reasons never quite explained, Weaver can revisit scenes from the past, and in doing so begins to piece together both the murders from the past and how they tie in with the present. It's predictably convoluted and ultimately leads to a rather silly and anticlimactic ending, but on the whole it's just compelling enough to keep you entertained.

A bit more frustrating is its often confusing puzzle logic and consistent inability to properly communicate where you need to go. I'd often find myself clicking randomly around the screen hoping to trigger something I'd missed before, only to find I needed to travel several screens back and use a random object to obtain another random object which somehow let me progress past where I was. It's not so awful as to make me quit the game, but it's annoying to have to rely on the hint system so often when it should be a last resort used for particularly challenging puzzles.

Although perhaps not a showcase of the absolute best HOGs have to offer, Angelica Weaver is on the whole a rather enjoyable (if occasionally overly self indulgent in both its story and illogical logic) casual adventure that is almost completely satisfying once you look past some of its more persistent issues. Though I doubt we will ever see a direct sequel, I wouldn't object if Mumbo Jumbo continued with this style and quality of HOGs, which are if nothing else miles ahead of most games of the genre.

MumboJumbo's HOG games are top notch. If you already play HOG games, then you probably already know that.

If you're one of those people who haven't really tried them but look down upon them automatically as a non-game or something overly casual, consider giving one a try. I did, and I was hooked.

HOG games are great when you're just looking to take a relaxing break and not for something that will raise your adrenaline or stress your brain too much.

I posted this review on the Angelica Weaver title arbitrarily, but the others I've played are of comparable quality. Midnight Mysteries is a great series as well.

This is by far the best hidden object genre game I've ever played. What sets it so far above the rest? It has a wonderful story and all the puzzles are fun. I think the devs did a great job of integrating the puzzles with the story. I really enjoyed the back and forth through time mechanic, and I found the main character to be really likeable. The few times that I got stuck were because something had changed that I didn't notice at first, but usually it was a very logical progression, which was nice. It's a shame there are no Steam achiements since there are cool achievements in game. Also, when you complete the game, you unlock a bonus chapter that totally twists the ending.

I really enjoyed this game. You play through as cop named Angelica Weaver, who can receive visions from the dead, which she uses to solve crimes.

The gameplay is broken up into three different kinds of play. Most of the game will be spent in a sort of point and click adventure mode where you'll collect tools and other objects to help you progress through the game. I was actually suprised how much of like a classic point and click this felt like.

Every now and again you'll search a location more in depth with a more traditional hidden object screen with a list of objects to find. This was fairly well designed and only one or maybe two times was I asked to find an item that I wasn't sure what it would look like.

And thirdly, occasionally you will reach a puzzle or minigame to mix things up. I really liked the puzzles, I never really felt all that challenged by them? But, I have played a lot of puzzle games in my time so, I might have had a lot of prior experience on my side. However, I don't believe the puzzles were meant to be all that difficult, instead just rewarding and fun to play with. I was quite happy with the puzzles.

If I had anything bad to say, the writing of Catch Me When You Can is a little clunky at times but has a good payoff. And, the voice acting was a little flat, kinda under acted at times. But, these were minor hiccups and I was able to take them with a grain of salt.

This edition also features some extra content which was pretty decent too. After you finish the game, you can go back and play any hidden object screen in an infinite object mode, where you find every possible object in the screen. Also, there's an extra chapter which surprisingly added a lot more to the story than I was expecting.

I wouldn't just recommend this to fans of the genre, I'd recommend this to fans of adventure games with an open mind. Hidden Object games have come a long way and arguably have more room to grow, but this was a great bit of fun.
