Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir (DS)

 

On paper, hidden-object games in which you spend your time searching for items in painterly 2D locales don't sound like a whole lot of fun. The Mystery Case Files series has enjoyed enough success on the PC to suggest otherwise, though, and now...

Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir will likely remind you of games you played as a kid. It's 'Where's Waldo' for the 21st Century.

Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir's principal play involves lots of hidden object puzzles; brainteasers that sees players scouring complex images to find random items. Upon being presented an image of a study, for example, you'll have to find a...

Find everything except the “MillionHeir.”

More "I Spy" action than you can shake a stylus at ; Control scheme feels natural and is, at times, inventive ; Mini-games break up the image-searching tedium ; There are some interesting multiplayer options</i

A LOT OF FUN IF YOU LIKE FIND-IT PUZZLES.

 

I like it because it is fun finding things and the story behind it.

Finding items is fun and the different things used to find them

Sometimes it not explained clearly that you have to go back to another screen to find items and how to get them

Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir- DS

 

The basic game is to seek items hidden on a variety of screens covered in complex detail and, sometimes, creepy images. This type of task occupies most of the game and becomes quite tedious and repetitive, although your seeking skill does improve with...
