Description

Your family is visiting San Francisco, on an adventure taking you through 30 key locations in San Francisco. Gameplay involves locating objects - 12 items are identified as being sought from a screen of objects overlapping and sitting on shelves. You can collect 'clue' coins, which when used will reveal the location of a single object. When a level is completed within the time limit, points are awarded based on how much time you have left.

To get between locations you must reveal the next one to be visited - this involves a small subgame played on a grid of tiles hiding a picture. Clicking on a tile removes any of the same design which are touching, and causes replacement tiles to drop in. A tile must be removed from every space to reveal the full picture and access the next level. Each location is preceded by a postcard containing fascinating facts about the locale.
