    "This game is available in the Google Play store for android for free, but it does offer in app purchases that are tempting to keep the game moving along. It's a hidden object game, but also has puzzles and a story line that is addicting! And it does have beautiful graphics. If you don't mind spending a little money on a game this is a great one to play."

    "Plot-wise, hands down. I swear the death of the philantrophist is very well written. This is where you doubt everyone around Carmody even her parents and best friend from school. More than hidden objects, this is more of a forensic investigation for me. "

    "To be fair, this game is entertaining for a while, but when you run out of puzzles, you're screwed. It's like back in the day when we looked at Where's Waldo books. After you find all of the clues in these puzzles you have to wait quite a while to get new puzzles and that's a major drawback."

WHAT’S THE MEANING?

By definition, a casual game is a kind of video game that is usually played in under an hour and it can come in any genre or form. It features a simple gameplay, familiarity, and it has the ability to reach its final stage within a short period of time.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that hidden object games have played a vital role in the success of the casual games industry today? According to Patrick Wylie, the vice president of Big Fish Studios, a significant increase in sales of casual games can be attributed to the emergence of hidden objects game genre today. He also takes pride in saying that Big Fish Studios has especially defined and moved forward the genre into its state today. The company is known for developing and publishing Mystery Case Files games—and for the record, the games have reached over 100 million downloads worldwide!

While some people often view this genre as something they would play just to kill time, it surprisingly has positive benefits. An article on Gongtats interestingly says that hidden object games help you to look beyond the face value of things. Too deep for a game, right? But you cannot deny that by playing it, you actually learn how to see things for what they are and not, and what it is they are hiding. On a Scientific level, researchers claim that an improved performance on visual research and spatial working memory tasks are seen among the players of this genre. For what it’s worth, the universality of this game is what makes it even more appealing to players of all ages.

    "The underwater setting of game is pretty much compelling and interesting for me. I let my younger brother watch me while I play this so he can see sea animals like shars and other creatures. If you like infusing puzzle while finding the missing objects, this one is for you. The domino chain of finding objects is so far the hardest and most challenging part of this game. I am now into my next chapter :D "

    "I don't think this game is a very good solution since it's way too time consuming to get to do anything much at all toward playing the game. Due to having to wait extreme amounts of time for the energy to build & only being able to do very little work in the game each day lasting only about 3 minutes, makes this a frustrating game where I spent more time waiting to get to play than actually playing."

    "I love hidden object games, especially on my phone. I found out about Modern Tales from a friend and I LOVE this game! It's so fun! It's set in Paris and I love Paris. It's one of my favorite places in the world. That makes the app all the better for me. Besides that, it's incredibly fun finding the hidden objects. It gets pretty difficult too, which I love since I enjoy a challenge. The graphics are also beautiful. I really recommend this game. It's fun and easy to pick up if you've never played this type of game before. Just be warned that it does get harder as you progress. Check it out!"

    "Well now, if i could give this negative stars, i would. I need a game for Android and this game is for that evil fruit company. An Apple a day keeps my money away. (did i just say that?) This doesn't work at all for me. It is the wrong platform. On top of that, this game isn't specifically about finding hidden objects , although that is part of the game. "
