Since Mystery Case Files took off, there have been an endless amount of hidden object and puzzle games vying for your attention. So to help make the decision a bit better, I bring you a rundown of the current top 3 games based on big fish games.
Top three of the week. Only one can survive. Side note: For future reference, I’ll exclude any 'special editions' that are unavailable to the general public.
3. Penny Dreadful’s: Sweeny Todd
The first to choose from follows the current hidden object trend of having part find objects and part blindly snooping around looking for clues. Though at times a bit more challenging than your standard puzzle when some clues are in completely different areas of the city. But a fun enjoyable mystery none the less. And you know, the eerie clips based on Sweeny were a nice touch. The title was an instant draw.
2. The Sultan's Labyrinth: A Royal Sacrifice
It took me a while to get into this game since it was primarily searching for pieces to objects that may or may not be needed in one of three rooms either to complete the level or get other fragmented pieces needed in another room. but once the initial confusion over what was needed, it was actually a fun puzzle game. reminded me of a hidden objects version of Azada.
1. Rhianna Ford and the Da Vinci Letter
Similar to Penny Dreadful, except with more hints and guidance over where to go and what to look for. Which makes this the easiest and fastest moving of the three (may also account for its top placing as well). Moved fast with very little stress over what to do and look for.
Final vote: whether you want to just play for the trial hour or to own, I’d go with Penny Dreadful. The graphics are nice. The story's interesting (you may even sit through all the dialogue). And the level of difficulty is enough to make you feel it was worth the purchase.
