Description

The Hidden Object Show is hidden object game mocking as a television game show. The main objective remains unchanged: find all the objects on the screen from a list at the bottom, within a time limit. The sound of a studio audience cheers every find, and groans with each mistake.

Hints show the locations of objects. They appear as question marks embedded in the scenery and up to five of them can be collected and stored for later use. Like in a TV show, the player "wins" prizes and cash for clearing screens.

A Wheel of Fortune-style roulette appears between each room. Each one of its segments is a mini-game. After spinning it, a game with a variation of the seek-and-find gameplay starts. In "Riddle", clues appear instead of the objects names. In "Spot The Difference", the screen is split in two similar halves, and the player has to click on the differences. In "Silhouette", the names are replaced by the objects' contour. In "Find 10", ten instances of one object have to be found. In "Picture Pieces", the screen is overlaid with a grid, and instead of objects the player has to find portions of the screen.
