Hidden Expedition: Amazon- Main Takeaways
The goal of Hidden Expedition: Amazon is to find the missing objects in each scene and unlock clues to find your missing uncle. The game starts off by auto rotating 90 degrees, and gives you a nice wide scene to search. Each scene is broken down into a grid, which you can easily jump the cursor to by pressing the assigned button from the keyboard. In the menu, you have the option to actually turn on a grid to make it easier to view the grid delineations. You can also move the cursor using the 5 way controller. As you find each object listed, it disappears from the scene. There are also hints available to highlight the area each object is in.
You can choose to replay each level at any time from the chapter selection menu. The game also gives you the option to create multiple profiles, so several people can play the game at once. There are also several mini games interspersed within the larger game, as you progress within the levels.
Hidden Expedition: Amazon- Conclusion and Overall Rating
I’m a huge fan of this style of game, and thought the Kindle version was very good. I do miss it being in color, but that is one of the limitations of Kindle games, and the resolution in the eInk was good enough to make the objects easily identifiable. I also wish that they game screen had been broken down even further into grids, as manipulating the mouse was a bit clunky at times. The price point is a bit high, but it is worth giving a try if you are a fan of the pc version of these games. I give this game 4 stars, and it will definitely be played further as I have yet to explore all the game has to offer.
