The Hidden Object tag refers to a genre of puzzle games that challenge players to find carefully hidden objects within detailed scenes or images. In these games, players are typically presented with a static or interactive scene filled with various objects, and their objective is to locate specific items within the scene.

The gameplay mechanics in Hidden Object games often involve visually scanning the scene and clicking/tapping on the objects as they are found. The challenge lies in the clever placement of these objects, which can be disguised among cluttered backgrounds, partially obscured by other items, or blended into the overall scenery.

Hidden Object games may include additional elements or variations that increase complexity and engagement:

  • Puzzles Some Hidden Object games incorporate puzzles or mini-games alongside object-finding challenges. These can range from jigsaw puzzles to logic challenges, providing additional layers of gameplay and variety.
  • Timer In certain instances, timers may be implemented to heighten the sense of urgency and add an element of speed to finding all the required hidden objects before time runs out.
  • Hints To assist players in case they get stuck or struggle to find certain items, Hidden Object games often provide hints that highlight specific areas or provide clues about where an object might be located.

Examples of popular Hidden Object titles include:

  • Mystery Case Files series A long-running franchise developed by Big Fish Games that combines hidden object challenges with intriguing mysteries and investigations.
  • Dreamscapes: The Sandman This game from Artifex Mundi incorporates hidden object mechanics into a dark fantasy storyline blending reality and dreamscape exploration.
