Hidden Object for Android review


Manufacturer: Magma Mobile

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

The game Hidden Object for Android is a free app that takes the principles of Where's Wally and puts it against the clock. In other words, it's great. Read our full review to find out more.

Hidden Object for Android couldn’t be made any simpler. You have to find the listed objects and then touch the part of the screen where they are. Sounds easy doesn't it? And it is. When you play it on easy. But then things get tricky. Visit New Star Soccer for Android review.

Before we get into that, let's give you more background information about the game. See also: Best Android Apps

Hidden Objects is a free Android app that is pretty much a fusion of Where's Wally (or Waldo for our American cousins) and Richard Whiteley’s Countdown clock (without the music). But instead of search for a tall, spectacled gentleman with a passion for wool, stripes and canes in equal measures, you're on the hunt for a whole heap of tat and junk.

The Hidden Objects app will list several items that you have to find during a level, the objects range from Sea Horses to Toy robots and you have to find them as quickly as possible to win as many stars as possible. The star rating is lifted straight from Angry Birds - as in the better you do the more stars you get. Unlocking the next level is also dependent on you star bank too, so there is a good intensive to do well at each stage. See also Group test: what's the best Android phone?

Hidden Object

If you still think the game sounds straightforward and unchallenging, you couldn’t be more wrong. Ok, you're right about the "straightforward" bit, but once it starts getting to the latter levels, I think even the CSI Miami team would have trouble scoring a full three stars straight off the bat, as the hidden objects becoming frustratingly hidden and near-impossible to find. All part of the fun though.

The game sounds perfect right now doesn't it? It's like a modern day word search, and that is pretty perfect, right? However there are demons that lurk in the depths of the app. And these fiends take the shape of notifications on your Android device, which as you probably know is the mother of all liberties for apps. If you can get over that inconvenience then you have a fun app that will keep you entertained for quite a few hours.

Hidden Object for Android Expert Verdict »

Size: 14MB
  • Overall: We give this item 7 of 10 overall

The game Hidden Object is a quick to learn Android app that has the potential to entertain you for hours with its Where's Wally-esque antics. It take a few liberties with its notifications though.
