Search for hidden folks in hand-drawn, interactive, miniature landscapes. Unfurl tent flaps, cut through bushes, slam doors, and poke some crocodiles! Rooooaaaarrrr!!!!! A strip of targets shows you what to look for. Click on a target for a hint, and find enough to unlock the next area.
Hidden Folks is a hidden object game in the style of the well-known 'Where is Walter?'' or ''Where's Wally?' Books by Martin Handford. Unlike the books, this game is not just about looking for a guy in a poodle cap and a red-and-white striped...
sweater, but about different characters and objects hiding in the detailed, interactive world. Currently there are 14 different worlds, which are divided into the areas forest, wasteland, city and factory and which are unlocked as the game progresses. Today the areas city and factory are to be extended by 1 or 2 game worlds. br><
Simple game principle, good mood, great fun
The game principle is quite simple! The persons and objects to be searched for are listed at the bottom of the screen. The player can scroll over the map to find the object. Of course, this is not always easy in the sometimes very large worlds, which are teeming with people at every turn. Some are very good hidden or not immediately to discover. A mouse click on the objects to be searched for therefore always reveals a tip that should help to find the person. Sometimes people and objects are hidden in or behind other objects and sometimes you just have to think a little 'around the corner' and set something in motion first. I estimate the total playing time to be something between 4 and 12 hours, depending on the player's approach. If you can't handle the black stick figures on a white background, you can either reduce the brightness of the background or try the night and sepia modes. The sound effects and scroll speed can also be adjusted as required. The general attention to detail and the fact that almost everything is animated and more than 960 sound effects & sounds have been recorded by developer Adriaan de Jongh himself make Hidden Folks a small work of art and a clear buy recommendation for anyone who likes hidden images.
