Big News… Hidden Folks!

Search for hidden folks in hand-drawn, interactive, miniature landscapes. Unfurl tent flaps, cut through bushes, slam doors, and poke some crocodiles! Rooooaaaarrrr!!!!!

Waldo is missing again. As is Sheriff Taylor, an apple, and my keys. Let’s go find them!

Gameplay
Hidden Folks is a hidden object game in the vein of I Spy or Where’s Waldo. The game is controlled entirely by the mouse, and is easy to pick up. The whole game is finding various people and objects, sometimes by interacting with the environment.

Stop opening those tents, Tom!

Atmosphere
The game features a really good atmosphere. The graphics are simplistic, but draw you in. The areas are all unique and memorable, with some characters you remember even after finishing. There are some pop culture references, mostly Nintendo, but they are all recognizable. The game doesn’t really feature any music, but it still draws you in with the sound effects, which are silly and fun.

Never forget kids. Cars go dootdootdootdootdoot.

Bugs
Honestly, I didn’t really encounter any real bugs. There were some graphical ones though, with layer priority problems. For example, you open a door letting a Folk out, shut the door, and the door is on top of their head. It’s minor, but it is noticeable.

Right there, bottom right. See what I’m talking about?

Overall, I’d give Hidden Folks a toast rating. It is a fun game, with a wonderful atmosphere, but it’s also got the same issue every one of these games have: Frustration. It’s not bad to get frustrated on occasion, but sometimes it’s annoying to be down to one person left to find and you can’t find them anywhere until you pixel hunt. However, I do highly recommend picking this title up.
