If you want a hidden object game which offers exactly what you assume in this genre, Pilgrim’s Hook won’t disappoint you. It may be unoriginal, but it is also a solid hidden object puzzle title.
Small Town Terrors 2 is the kind of hidden object game that tries to remain in the genre’s comfort zone, which works as much to its advantage as against it.
The story offers little surprises: while searching for a loved one you find yourself in a small town haunted by something evil, which of course you promptly destroy before the end credits. There is next to no supporting cast, and the voice acting is kind of a hit and miss.
Same goes for the puzzles: we don’t meet a single one that wasn’t seen before, but they offer a large variety and a good difficulty curve– although the hidden object scenes tend to rely on the ‘find x amount of said object’ gimmick. The only really conspicuous flaw is the usual dumb adventurer syndrome, where you instantly throw away a useful object even if you would need it three scenes later.
Despite these small issues Pilgrim’s Hook is still a good pick that won’t really disappoint any hidden object game fans.
