Solve the mystery!

The aim of the game is to help Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson restore the plots of the well-loved books that have been tampered with by magic! You will enter scenes and find the missing objects and play match-3 games to discover the truth!

Truthfully, I didn’t mind the gameplay as I’m a fan of Hidden Object games anyway and I loved how the game has an actual storyline attached to it. The only part I didn’t like was the match-3 games – isn’t there enough of this already on the app store?


The graphics are very nice to look at!

I’ve noticed that Hidden Object Games love to set their gameplay within the Victorian times but it definitely adds to the whole detective feel it brings. I enjoyed the graphics and didn’t find the levels too easy or too hard. However, the main menu is very, very busy – I found it pretty difficult to navigate!

Music & Sounds

Of course, the music and sounds fit in perfectly with the Victorian England theme of the game. I didn’t find it to be too much like I do with some other app games, however, it doesn’t add anything to the gameplay so you could mute it!


Tap to control!

Like all Hidden Object Games, all you have to do is tap on the item if you find it. Once you find it, it will disappear and you simply move on to the next one!

The Verdict

What did you think?!

Sherlock: Hidden Object is a fun Hidden Object Game, however, it’s nothing special compared to the rest of the games I’ve played on the app store. If you like Sherlock, then I don’t see why not, but if you’re just looking for a mystery-themed game in general, try one of these.
