Foreword

Attention!

This article is pending review. It is either incomplete, out-of-date, or I feel the need to disclaim my shame for a something I’m not proud of.

Gameplay

. . . in a nutshell

I need to make some revisions.

out the shell. . .

This game is an hidden object game through-and-through. Each level is some massive scene, a snap-shot of many peoples’ lives. Hidden throughout the scene are a collectable items and interactive props. To collect some items, you may have to break (or knock on) objects by repeatedly clicking on them. I suggest that you keep slamming that mouse button, for safe measure. Each collectible item has a certain place in the scene, ranging from giving someone a drink to unlocking vaults.

Some of the results were. . . shocking. In a good way. I didn’t see what was coming! Some of the objects are very small, and hard to find if you’re not zoomed-in all the way. If you get stumped, you periodically hit the magnifying glass (on the bottom left of the screen) to gain a random clue. When you have found the rightful place of every item, you are permitted to move onto the next stage.

Story

Each stage is a collection of short stories. In the first stage, we explore a set of buildings, during the stroke of the Christmas season. In the next stage, we explore a fantasy realm, one of wizards and monsters. In the third stage, we are taken to some grand battle between two behemoths; two rival pirate factions face-off, but only a few members of each crew are actually fighting. Everyone else, well they’re. . . busy. From the scurvy face-off we are taken to the wild west, where you might see a few delightful movie references.

I won’t spoil the fun, as I think this is the sort of game that’s best explored on your own. There’s so, so many things to look at, I could ramble for hours.

Visuals

The user interface is easy to use and navigate, but it isn’t that impressive. The title screen advertises the developers other works, in a not-so discrete way. The artwork used for the interface and background look very high quality, and are appealing to the eyes. In-game, the user interface is out of the way, and easily hidden via the “escape” key.

The Goods

The lewd artwork looks wonderful, and appears in such sheer quantity it. . . blows my mind. This game doesn’t host full art, erotic scenes like you’d see in other “adult” titles. Instead, it has several, massive animated conglomerations of artwork. It all reminds me of a (very lewd) “Where’s Waldo”. Every piece has so many things going on at once, your eyes will naturally draw from one character to the next, most (if not all) involved in some hedonistic activity.

And if they aren’t bangin’, then somethin’s wrong, and you need to fix it.

Verdict

This is a fun little game to relax with. I haven’t seen anything like it, and I would pick it up when you have some extra income (or when it goes on sale). The artwork is top notch, and the gameplay reminiscent of those “Where’s Waldo” books, and their spectacular scenes.
