Wot I Think: Dark Strokes – Sins Of The Father

I feel a weight of the pointlessness of trying to convince a hardcore gaming audience to give their money and time to a casual game. Clearly there's a lot of prejudice, a lot of it earned by the crappy nature of so much of the casual market, the rest I'd argue pure snobbishness on the part of gamers. Obvious breakthrough exceptions, invariably published by PopCap,…

Majesty: HHiiddeenn OObbjjeecctt IInn 33DD

The other day I was arguing that all new game trends trend toward adventure. What I'm saying is, adventure gaming is the natural form of game, to which all games aspire. And so it is that the infinitude of the casual gaming market is all gradually forming itself from a void into a desire to be adventures. They've just got to take that one leap…

Demo: Letters From Nowhere

If we posted every time there was a new hidden object demo, we'd become Rock, Paper, Hidden Object Demo. Although by that logic we're a website exclusively about shotguns, which probably isn't the case. However, I really liked the name of this one, so it gets a link, despite being identical to all the others. It's called Letters From Nowhere. Which makes me want to…

Find The Love: Mystery P.I. San Fran Demo

You know what - you're wrong about hidden object games. Sure, there's an awful lot of crappy ones, and sure, people who don't like hardcore turn-based strategy are happy to play them, but stop judging. They're calming fun, and the best of the bunch are the Mystery P.I. series, made by SpinTop Games. There's a new one out (which is a bit like saying, "There's…

Micro WIT: Snark Busters

Look, I don't much care if you disapprove of Hidden Object games. There's kerbillions of us who think they're great, and if we all formed together into one giant robot we'd be able to crush your puny army with our mighty object-finding fists. And we will. Snark Busters: Welcome To The Club is a rare example of an attempt to deviate from the core concept…

Thrillsturbing! Mind’s Eye Demo

You may be wondering why someone as handsome and clever as me is playing yet another demo of yet another hidden object game. I'll tell you why. It's because it's described like this on GamersHell: "Nothing can prepare you for the experience of playing Mind's Eye: Secrets of the Forgotten, a hidden object adventure that will challenge, thrill and disturb you."

Oh, There You Are: Escape Rosecliff Island

I love hidden object gaming. And I don't feel like I should have to justify that to you. Why do you get like this? It's not like it's some big deal for someone to enjoy a jigsaw puzzle, so why must you always look down on me for enjoying myself? Look, just leave me alone. During yesterday's happy-go-smiles over the Plants Vs Zombies video, I…
