I bought this game because it was on sale (95% off) and has cards and achievements. Never really expecting anything else from it. But when I played the game, I knew I found a hidden gem.
Morphopolis is a point & click, hidden object, and puzzle game set in a colorful insect world. I love the atmosphere! The art is gorgeous and the music helps to bring out more of the supposedly "nature" setting.
The game is divided into five short segments. You can finish the whole game in 2 to 4 hours. Basically, you need to guide the insect to find the objects and solve the puzzles needed to get through to the next metamorphic phase. The hidden objects are fairly easy to find. There are some that blend well with the background (but there'a a hint button anyway if you're feeling lazy to really search for them). The puzzles are moderately challenging (I find the last puzzle a bit more challenging than the rest.). In some puzzles (like the glow worm, perhaps), I think you'll spend more time figuring out what to do than solving them. :D
If you are a card collector and an achievement hunter, this one's for you. Only five cards to collect and you can unlock every achievement as you finish the game.
The only cons I found are:
(1) the lack of direction / instruction.
When I began the game, I only saw a "hand" symbol that tells me to move my insect to that direction. And that's it. But you can easily figure out the game mechanics as you progress.
(2) you cannot save / quit in the middle of the segments.
You can force quit the game but your progress won't be saved. You have to redo everything in that particular level.
Do I recommend this game? YES! For me, I find the good points of this game outweigh these cons.
