An "I spy" game with a mystery to solve, fun at first, but gets boring pretty fast.
Feb 2, 2009
This game is in the I Spy category of games where you have to find hidden objects on each screen which will take you to another place. Some paintings have been stolen from the museum and your task as the Private Investigator (P.I.)is to find them.
You pick a building and then the game presents you with a screen where you have to find the objects mentioned in the game. Finding a paintbrush and the key in addition unlocks the bonus mini games.
I was bored after playing this game for 2 hours as finding objects gets monotonous after a while. I yearned for more action or strategy in this game. The graphics are just average and caused eye strain as I concentrated hard on the screen trying to locate hidden objects.
I am disappointed to report that I did not find the game as fun as some other reviewers, and this is not a game I would play over and over again. However, if you like the "I Spy" or find the hidden object type of games, you may enjoy this more than me.
