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

Plotline actually detracts from the experience ; Some of the object clues are a little abstract ; Multiplayer options require extra game cards

Overall, there’s just not much here. The game might actually have been more enjoyable without the pretext of a plotline. Just give me a bunch of puzzles with some mini-games thrown in for good measure, and that’s perfectly satisfactory. As a Touch...

It's happened to everyone at some point in their lives; losing an important item only to have to scan an entire room meticulously to determine if it's hiding in plain sight is a major pain. When the pressure is on, like losing your car keys five...

Big Fish Games returns to the Mystery Case Files series by bringing the find-the-hidden-objects formula to Nintendo's DS, letting you tap your way to uncovering secret clues in interactive touch-screen scenes.

A good effort on Nintendo's DS - especially with the inclusion of wireless multiplayer and quick puzzles. If a virtual game of finding objects in a 2D scene floats your boat, then Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir is by far the most suitable game for...

A more taxing challenge that required real thought and detective work would have been preferable, but MillionHeir does what it sets out to do very well.

Very simple to play ; Great use of puns

Too simple for some ; Don't feel much like a detective

What you get in Mystery Case File: MillionHeir is the kind of game that would appeal to anyone who spends time on the train completing spot the difference puzzles, Sudoko puzzles or word searches. Hardcore gamers are advised to stay well clear unless...

Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir

 

This hidden-object game introduces a number of features that work well on the DS and has a good amount of replay value.

Amusing and lengthy Story mode ; Plenty of replay value ; Use of the DS microphone is optional rather than mandatory

Gameplay is repetitive by nature ; You need great eyesight to find items on diminutive DS screens
