What is a hidden object game?

A hidden object game is a genre of puzzle video game where the player must find specific items from a list that are hidden within a picture. There’s usually a storyline involved and completing the puzzles helps work out the mystery. We’ve reviewed our fair share of hidden object games so we thought it was time to show you our favorites so far:

Murder in the Alps

Hidden Objects: Coastal Hill

In Coastal Hill you’ll find yourself in the city center of the eeriest action and puzzle-adventure full of free Hidden Objects and Match 3 mysteries, innuendos, and obscurities. The lighthouse castle you once knew as a peaceful spot has changed completely. Search for hidden objects to reveal the castle secrets.” – Tamalaki

What we thought: Hidden Objects: Coastal Hill was one of the more unique hidden object games out there. For example, there’s a level where you find the objects based on the silhouettes rather than the names. Most of the hidden object games we’ve come across haven’t switched things up like that so it was nice to see something different.

What we thought: Although we thought it wasn’t as unique as some other hidden object games, it was still fun to play. There’s an option to play with friends and compare scores which always gets us feeling competitive!

The graphics were also great, however, they did remind us of Gardenscapes quite a bit. They’re cartoon-like, colorful, and run smoothly without crashing.
