"Welcome to the Hidden Object Game Show" says the ever so glib, top hat and tuxedo wearing Master of Ceremony with the Clockwork Orange eyes and a maniacal laugh that puts the Joker to shame. Okay, gramps what have you managed to get yourself into besides a cage along with 5 other caged 'contestants'. For accuracy's sake two people are in one cage, making 5 cages total. Despite this bizarre and slightly unnerving introduction the only thing any of this has to do with gameplay is releasing the trapped and caged 'contestants'. (Making this game 5 levels in total.)

I read all the reviews after I played the game and the negative ones did nothing to dampened my enthusiam about recommending this game. This is what a TRUE HIDDEN OBJECT GAME IS. No bells, whistles, or storyline beyond the premise. No walkabout adventure/mystery. No point and click, puzzles, achievements, or anything else that is associated with today's HO games. This is a game for a connoisseur and an afficianadio of the Hidden Object genre.

Circa 2010 and the third of a series, this game is only about finding Hidden Objects. The only thing repetitive about this game is probably the music. So turn it off. This game uses a spin wheel to chose the type of hidden object play the gamer gets. It is randomized and there is an auto-spin option. There are 13 different types of hidden object find "puzzles": straight list, combine (which is equivalent to "extra step" finds), letter getter (find the alphabet which fill in the letters of find clues - almost like hangman), silhouette, focus (day version of night mode played with a fuzzy picture and a magnifying glass), riddle (i.e. orange and rabbits favorite food), elimination (eliminate several series of items from the scene before a riddle to the object needed to be found is given), triplets (find three of the same object), find 10 (find 10 of something), spot the difference, puzzle (match the puzzle piece to the puzzle piece in the scene) and countdown (30 seconds to find the object). Just the variety of different types of Hidden Object "puzzles" is staggering compared to today's games. Now add to this about 30 different scenes and the game is a very far cry from repetitive some claim this game is.

I never played the same thing twice, and not until near end did I even get the same scene (and then with a different puzzle type). A mention about the scenes, the objects in the scene are what one would expect to find in say a garage, a swimming pool or a bedroom. Albeit a very full garage, cluttered swimming pool, or extremely messy bedroom but overall the items are appropriate to the scene not just random junk.

The object of the game is to release the 6 trapped and caged 'contestants', who they themselves are a bit over the top. Their banter is pretty amusing, as well as their stereotype. There are six total game rounds that must be played to release each contestant. (In one case, 2.) However, each game can be extended with bonus rounds (up to 3). (I think this is random, or NOT getting bouns rounds may depend on whether or not the gamer lands the stop in a small gold area on the spinner.) Despite playing a bonus round on the same scene the puzzle type is different, and the objects move or are added depending of the puzzle type. During gameplay "bonus" scenes show up that the gamer can click on. (I only ever got two per puzzle.) These bonus scenes last 15 seconds during which time the gamer must collect as many broken token pieces as they can. These tokens give the gamer hints, 2x hints, skip (a puzzle type when placed on the spin wheel), and/or an unlock (unlock a new puzzle type) depending on how many pieces the gamer collects. After each game round a scoreboard is given showing accuracy, tokens, etc. (Accuracy may depend on misclicks, less misclicks the higher the accuracy??)

That is the game.

After everyone is free, the Master of Ceremony states the "gamer" cannot leave because there is more to do. The "more to do" is found in the extended play area on the main menu. In this extended play area, scenes are shown with stars beneath indicting which type of puzzle that has or has not been played.

One warning: Some the scenes have windows which are so bright the objects in them can not be seen. I thought this was probably my computer but apparently not. Others have mentioned/complained about this. I am quite sure if this game was ever remastered that this would no longer be a problem. My solution was to use hints or simply randomly click on the window to "see" if anything was there. Compared to some of the bugs I have encountered in newer games this was barely a shrug on the annoyance scale.

So yes, get this game, and though I received this as a gift, full price is well worth it.

I like this game because it was actually just a hidden object game. Not a lot of frills and extras, just doing a number of different modes of hidden object finds in different rooms. Some people seem to have found it bland and boring because it is lacking the point and click adventure part that most other hidden object games are filled with, but if you're not looking for that then this is good. Although, it is very short.

Game is short, has no point-and-click elements at all and picture is far from perfect. But it has some new hidden object scene modes which I never saw before (for example riddles that points items you should find), great voice acting (especially the main villain) and is pretty entertaining. Sadly it has no achievements which could stretch play time few hours more. Grab it on a sale and you'll not be dissapointed.

Low system specs
Not insanely difficult

Short (finished the game in 3 hours, less time it took to make and eat dinner so 1.5 hours)
No steam cards or achieves
For me the screen capture doesn't work
$5.50 for the amount of time is a bit expensive

5/10 -1 short -1 no cards, etc = 3/10
Unless your really into short hidden object games, pass.

Millionaire Manor is a pretty bland hidden object game with little to no adventure plot involved. It's just a series of hidden object 'puzzles' with the only connection being a spinner that selects the mode that the hidden object screen will be presented in (e.g. list, silhouette, puzzle piece, etc.).

I didn't find much of a challenge, none of the hidden objects require any kind of manipulation to reveal, and the hardest thing about it was finding the objects in lower quality images (poor lighting, distance perspective, etc.) The most imaginative thing about the game was the constant timed "Bonus Round" interrupting the main hidden object screen with another hidden object screen.

Each puzzle seems to serve no purpose other than to complete itself. There's no sense of reward or accomplishment, as you get in the more entertaining adventure story HOGs when you unlock the item that you just happen to need to progress in the story. I guess if spotting and clicking random stuff thrown in haphazardly on top of blah pictures is the part of HOGs you enjoy most and you hate the story part where you have to figure out the puzzles, this is the one for you.

If this game at least had Steam achievements, then it might be worth the effort to slog through the boring gameplay in order to grab some easy achievements. As it is, there are so many HOGs available on Steam that would be more deserving of your time, even if you picked this one up on sale.
