Description

A man wakes up on a house full of classic paintings on its walls, with no recollection whatsoever of who he is, or how he end up there. By carefully examining the pictures, something triggers in his mind as he starts to find small discrepancies and anachronisms, and his memories slowly start to come back.

Secrets of Great Art is a straightforward hidden object game using 19th century paintings for the background art. Each level is a different picture, with its title and author displayed at the bottom-left for a few seconds at the start. The objective is to find and click on all the objects from a list at the left side of the screen, within a time limit. Sometimes a bonus round appears, where the player has to find the differences between two similar images.

A hint button provides help, indicating the position of one of the required objects. Three hints are available per scene, and using them removes some points from the final score. Successive wrong clicks take off 30 seconds from the timer.
