Interesting game with a game show element added to the hidden object genre. You start by selecting a country at random to use as a location, then spin a wheel to determine the value of each object while competing against two computer controlled players in a race to find hidden objects the quickest. Games can be standard seek-and-find or categories like "toys" or "kitchen items". Minigames abound too. In one you have to place items into one of two side-by-side pictures to make them identical, in another you're catching falling dollar bills, and in another you're answering trivia questions. All allow you to increase your cash total. The voice actor pretty much nails the shtick of the typical game show host. Opponents seem easy to beat but occasionally one finds objects quick enough to make me sweat. People who enjoy "relaxed" mode may want to play the trial first since you're racing the clock in almost all games and minigames. I'd give it five stars for originality but my one gripe is many of the items aren't drawn to scale; meaning dice can be the size of houses and pyramids can be the size of acorns. It may not be an issue for you but I always feel like it ruins the game when this is done.

premise sounds good, but, really sloooooooooow going from scene to scene and when you are supposed to click and drag...you cant. disappointing.

Very original concept. Well made. In each hidden object scene, there is a postcard background and objects in that background. There is also a foreground. Sort of like an old-time TV or movie set. The only problem I had with this game is that the backgrounds looked like they had been taken from actual postcards - you can see lines in them from scanning. All in all, a great game, especially nice for anyone who likes game-shows. Good for kids, too.

Wow! I can't believe there aren't more reviews for this game. This totally rocks in my opinion. This is definitely different from any HOG I've ever played. This is actually a "game show" and you play against 2 other people (computer oponents) to see who can find the hidden objects the fastest. Lots of variety and mini games. The hidden objects most of them are pretty challenging in my opinion as they are blended into the scene quite well. This is definitely on my to be purchased list as I just did the one hour free trial. I really enjoyed this quite a bit.
