If you enjoy global sightseeing, but feel it needs the excitement of a flea market exploding all over it, then Selectsoft’s series of hidden objects games are made for you.
It’s all really simple and straightforward, and you’ve seen it all before if you played City Mysteries.
As a child, Tim once spent an entire month staring longingly at a copy of Kirby's Dream Land his parents had kept atop the refrigerator until he could play it on an upcoming road trip. It's the dumbest thing I've ever done, because I haven't paid an admission fee and queued up to get to the bell. No, I am a dead-drunk New Yorker accompanied by a French preppy named Nico I met three hours ago and my best friend, Steve Duncan, a guy whose favorite place in the world is a two-hundred-year-old sewer tunnel underneath Lower Manhattan. Over the last few years I've been to a lot of places, in a lot of cities, where your average tourist shouldn't be -- and many more that your average tourist doesn't even know exist. A world where I party with people living in the tunnels under New York, squatters in an abandoned Sao Paulo mansion, and Ukrainian teenagers in Cold War bunkers and partisan hideouts under Odessa. I'm part of a loose-knit worldwide network of artists, historians, adventurers, and other assorted nutcases sometimes called "urban explorers." All of it has been fascinating. Two of these stages involve ticking off a list of items to find by tapping them on the screen.
The location photos, wherever many of them may be, are of very nice quality, looking good both in full on the upper screen and zoomed in on the bottom.


In Timed you are given three “lives” to complete each stage within an allotted limit, receiving points for every item found and subtracting a small amount for each incorrect tap. It’s a cut and dry hidden object game that’s somewhat short on content but still replayable. And how we have managed to access the bell tower in the spire of Notre Dame is by using a combination of gargoyles, flying buttresses, and a makeshift ladder to scale the outside of the cathedral in the middle of the night. I've become part of the world of people who break into national monuments for fun, put on movie screenings in storm drains, and travel the globe sleeping in centuries-old catacombs and abandoned Soviet relics rather than hotels or bed-and-breakfasts. Where I discover ancient Roman ruins in the sewers beneath the Capitoline Hill, dodge trains and the third rail in five of the ten largest subway systems in the world, and manage to avoid entrance charges for landmarks from Stonehenge to the minarets of the Bab Zuweila gate, built over nine hundred years ago to guard the city of Cairo.
The cornucopia of objects you need to find also look pretty good, although they’ll never blend in seamlessly with the environment. Most players should get through this just fine, thanks to an ample amount of time given and the offering of three “hints” per level that zoom in on the location of a still missing object.
Fans of the genre who enjoyed City Mysteries will find a safe pickup here, but others might find more interest perusing old issues of National Geographic. Search buildings, streets, landmarks and more as you delve into detailed and evocative indoor and outdoor scenes filled with over 1000 carefully placed items. Your top concern is to see the sights of four incredibly beautiful cities and gather a collection of valuable artifacts.


The names of the cities don’t seem to be noted anywhere within the game itself, and not a lick of information is provided for any shot that is used. Once in a rare while, though, the colours of an object and the background may match a little too well, making an object almost impossible to find.
Aside from wanting to beat your own personal best scores, though, the points feel rather meaningless.
For no particular reason other than we were down there, and the spire is up here, and this just seemed to be the best way to get from point A to point B.
An educational opportunity is once again lost, and when that happens, Carmen Sandiego wins. Casual mode throws away the time limit and hints, letting you cycle through and try stages at your leisure.The ambient sound of City Mysteries has been replaced by a mix of soothing and ethnic music.
