An excellent game to bring people together!
Saying this game is like Where's Waldo? is a huge understatement! The moment I opened the game I felt the need to grab a family member just to share my animated discoveries. Within minutes, my wife and son were huddled around me tapping away!
The game is hand drawn but more importantly, all of its audio is filled in with the developer's voice. Car horns, monkeys, water drops, wind...they're ALL done vocally! It really does make Hidden Folks more than just a game. It's more like having a silly friend you can always count on. I highly recommend this game for human beings (especially those living with other humans. I do not recommend this to my canine readers, as we all know, touch screens are not for you. However, declawed feline readers seem to enjoy this game just as much, if not more, than their human roommates.
Hidden Folks is a Hidden Gem
I don't normally buy a game for more than 1.99 because I am often disappointed. I took a shot on this game because I enjoy puzzles and games that are easy to pick up and put down. This fits both bills perfectly.
It is challenging, but not impossible. There looks to be plenty of content to keep me busy for a while and it looks like it has replay-ability if you don't have a photographic memory. I love the quirky illustrations, humor and sounds and am looking forward to trying it out on my new iPad with a much bigger screen than my 6S.
The only complaint I can come up with is that it's very hard to find the tiny spider in the very large forest 🤣, but that's what makes it fun and infuriating a the same time.
Love this game, but...
I was really enjoying this game. Fun, relaxing play with no time limit. Only real drawback for my 50-year-old eyes was that it's a bit small and you can't zoom in too far. But that being said, I was really enjoying it. THEN, I was delighted to find that when I installed the game on the iPad I keep by the bed, the game play picked up where I left off on my phone and vice versa. I'm not sure how they were doing that as I don't use iCloud syncing or Game Center. What an unexpected bonus! Now for the PROBLEM. After playing on both devices for a week or so (I was on the city streets level) the game completely lost my game history on both devices! Back to the beginning. 😥 It was hard enough to get that far, and I'm completely unmotivated to start the same levels again. Total bummer. Anyone else have this happen?
