Hidden Folks reviews and comments

A typical Hidden Object Game, who likes such Games, will not make a False Purchase in this Game. There are some Areas in this Game, some quite small, others very large, where you have to find different People and Objects. All Search Targets have a small Description that allows you to guess a little where to find this Person/object, but these Tips are often a little inaccurate or a Puzzle. Some Tips hardly help you, because the Tip shows that they can be in the whole Picture. For some Search Objects you have to make changes to the Image to find them, sometimes you just have to open a Curtain, but sometimes you also have to do more elaborate Things, Such as helping an Object on an Assembly line with several Things to get along the Assembly line Finally, take at the Target to reveal the object you are looking for. The complete Sound of the Game was produced by People with their Voice, which is quite funny to listen to. Water Noise, Car horn, etc. I myself sat on some Pictures for a relatively long time, because some Targets were very difficult to find and the Tips sometimes didn't help much. I finally played through the game in just over 3 Hours including all The Achievments, so playing Time is not so much to expect, but I obviously don't know how fast I was compared to the Average. Little negative Criticism at this Point: I played through the game before I got the last Steam Collection card, so I'll have to run the Game again if I still want to get it ... The Developers are probably currently also working on other Areas for the Game, the currently last Area "factory" With several Search Images was probably added free of charge only later, so it may be that the other Areas that may still be coming, will also be free of charge. Be. Conclusion: For all patient Hidden Object Fans highly recommended. For Newcomers to this Game category it might be a little frustrating, since I would recommend rather lighter games for the Start, such as Hero of the Kingdom.

You just can not stop when you've started Simples gameplay in fabulous implementation ensures a few hours of relaxed gameplay! Really great and with the introductory price of just under 7 o.k. It should not cost more, since it is already available for iOS for $ 3!

A game dynamic in the style of the books Finding Wally, completely absorbing and full of details. Very relaxing to disconnect for a while in the day trying to find the characters and objects proposed. It is not too complicated but there will be some moment of despair! Interesting also to entertain little children (or play with them).

A very interesting game. I find you notice the love of the developers, only the hand-drawn worlds show that. The sound effects conjure me every time I click on the mouse a smile in the face. It has long been the first game I bought and played, and I do not regret a cent. Thanks to the developers and illustrators for this little piece of game art.

The game consists of finding characters, animals, objects in various places. The concept is not bad to pass the time, but after a few minutes, you can quickly feel weariness settle. The characters are not always visible, you have to click on several places to find them. Paying 6.99 as I did for this game, is not worth it.

Simple, hand-painted graphics in black and white with great attention to detail. With this search game you can spend hours, because some riddles are not so easy. Luckily you do not have to solve all the riddles in the big pictures, but you'll get ahead of time. OK then. Because then you can come back, if you stay somewhere else and it will not be boring that fast. Simply full of great ideas in the individual scenes that the makers have come up with. If there are more scenes, one about the theme of a motorcycle would be great ;-) P.S .: I can not understand why some people complain about the game here. Especially not for the reasons. I look at the gameplay on youTube before buying a game. If it suits, then I buy the game, if not, then let it be me.
Not as good as I hoped it’d be. I had so much fun with the Waldo books and thought I’d find something as interesting as they were here. Unfortunately, I just miss the humor and I’m bored of looking at the environments. However, the concept is really good and the game’s made well too. But… for me it’s a disappointment.
This game looks simple but it’s unexpectedly very funny. Sound effects are awesome too - another great surprise for me. Strongly recommended if you want to spend some time and money.
