Probably the most boring HO games I've played. Feels more like a grind. No good story, no resolution options.

This is one of the more fun HO games I've played. It has several varieties of puzzles that make it more interesting than just finding the items on a list.

The story is dumb, so if you play HOGs for story you may not like it.

I do not know what the negative reviews are about. My wife and I play Hidden Object Games for fun, and Millionaire Manor is one of the better of the half-dozen or so we have played. Unlike some games, the objects mostly are appropriately sized and placed (not huge, or stuck on the ceiling, for example). Yes, in a few cases poor contrast makes an object invisible, but that is not particularly uncommon in our experience with other games.

Although short, the game seems clean and professional. We like that the game has an unusual variety of different modes, such as: list (the usual HOG mode), silhouette (only the outline of the object), matching (combining 2 objects to make the list item), alphabet (first find all the letters, with only the found letters presented when naming the object), and jigsaw (place a row of jigsaw pieces at their position in the room), among others. After the main game, Extended Play covers the rest of the modes on each of the rooms, which may be longer than the main game.

The evil master of ceremonies is just a hoot! We enjoyed it!

This Hidden Object game is that your on a gameshow to save your grandpa so you must complete puzzles to do it. The variety of puzzles are interesting from silhouettes, to riddles, keeping things fresh. A solid 10/10 idea! Good voice acting which drives the story makes the game feel alive.

The game detects your resolution loading the game in that resolution which can result in stretched or fuzzy low quality textures.
How to Fix:
Right click the steam entry and choose properties/click local files then browse local files.
Right click the exe "THOS3" with the star icon and choose properties.
Go to compatibility Tab and put a check in the box for "disable display scaling on high DPI settings".

I bought this Game during a Sale after discovering how good HOG`s can be through the Artifex Mundi Games.
Sadly this one is not even close to them. The Story is nonsensical and lackluster. That alone
I wouldn`t mind so much but the Gameplay, while theoretically varied with lots of gamemodes
is absolutely random. You spin a wheel that randomly gives you a Gamemode. This means
that you will most likely play the same modes again and again and never get to see some of the
others.

Still I could forgive the Game this if it didn`t fail at the most important part, the Hidden Objects.
While they should be more or less hard to find, I have encountered several Objects that were simply
impossible to find without Hints due to bad contrast and lighting. Even WITH the Hint I couldn`t see
1 or 2 of them while staring right at them. Only blindly clicking on the area were they revealed.

TL:DR
If you are a Hardcore HOG Gamer and want to complete your collection, buy it during a sale.
Everyone else stay far, far away from it.

After a while it starts to get pretty boring as the riddles come up oer and over again. Also there was a problem that while I was in the storymode I wasn't able to unlock the lst riddle, only afterwards in the extras I was able to play it. It's ok for this small price and some no intense gaming
