Hidden Folks is a curious title available for iOS, PC and soon for Android (although in the case of mobile devices it is recommended to play on large screens). If you’ve ever enjoyed a little with any of the books from “Where’s Wally?” You’ll have a great time with this proposal from two independent developers. We’ll tell you more below.
This way or that way?
As you can imagine the game has the same premise as the aforementioned Wally books, however, do not think it is so simple, it is a game with a charisma and certain novelties that give it a great added value with respect to the series of Children’s book games.
We will have to look for different characters and elements in huge areas full of details, all this handmade with a simplistic design in black and white. In addition we have a sound box carving knife since all the sound effects of the game are made by one of its developers, We will listen to him imitating different animals, blows … until the menus.
At first finding something so small in such large areas may seem impossible, but, we have small clues that make the game much more enjoyable while still maintaining the challenge. We can also focus on certain areas by zooming with the clamp gesture on touch screens and with the mouse wheel on PC.
If you are looking for a quiet game that does not require skill or put your heart at 100 per action this is certainly your choice, we could even say that it is a small zen experience that you can take anywhere on your mobile.
We finish the review mentioning that the game has a palette of colors “night mode” that reverses the colors, so our view will not suffer as we look for that jumpy monkey that both resist us in the crowd.
