Loved this game!
This is a wonderful hidden object game. There are 25 levels, so it's a game you can really spend time on and is well worth the cost. The objects in each scene are skillfully hidden, but the art work is very clear and easy to see. To play the game, you find hidden objects in an average of four scenes at each level. At the end of the level there is a mini-game such as Match 3, complete the picture, word-find, etc. When you solve the mini game you receive a clue, and when you finish all 25 levels, you need to use all the clues you've collected to solve a final puzzle. There are also "bonus" hidden objects in each new scene. If you find all 25 magnifying glasses, you get an extra million points. Every new scene has a key and an apple. The object is to find all 25 of each of these in order to play the "Unlimited" hidden object part of the game and Unlimited Find the Differences. After you finish all 25 levels, you can click on each scene and find every one of the hidden objects in that scene. I'm a real hidden object game fan, so this game is perfect for me!

HOS, HOS AND MORE HOS
This game is pure HOG; no real storyline, just HOS after HOS. There are 25 levels with multiple HOS in each level. At the end of each level is a puzzle to complete, all of them simple and easy. The HOS are not very hard, either. Finding 25 apples and 25 keys allows you to play bonus material at the end. The bonus material consists of going back to every HOS and finding every HO in each scene. There is also a "find the difference" puzzle for each of the locations as a bonus. This game should have enough HO for every serious HOG lover.

Family is going to lose that fortune without your help.
An old man dies and in his will he states that his family members have only 17 hours to find the fortune or he will leave it to his cat and dog. He has a sense of humor that way. Yeah, I could see doing that - LOL. So, in you come as the world famous P.I. to save the day, or fortune, as the case may be. HAH! I said "case", get it? I slay me.
First off, this game is strictly HOGs (hidden object games). They are everywhere you turn. So, you've been forewarned. I don't want to come back and read reviews complaining about the number of HOGs in this game - IT'S AN HOG GAME! Ok. Now that that's out of the way.
In each level, you are given several locations to investigate. In each location, there are 10 items you must find. In addition to those 10 items, you need to (well, I guess it could be a matter of personal choice) find a key and an apple (the Big Apple - get it?). In this case, if you find all of them (25 in total) you will unlock and "unlimited play". A little curious about what that is exactly because I already set my "options" for unlimited hints. Hmmmm. Definitely a "hmmmm" moment. There is also a magnifying glass in each location. Find all of them and you get a 1 million point bonus. Oh, joy, yay.
Oh, yeah, when you finish the LEVEL, not a location, but all the locations in that level, you get to play a mini game which could be a puzzle, match 3 game, any number of cool and fun mini games. LOVE the mini games.
The graphics are not too bad, but some of the HOGs were pretty dark and dreary. I do like that, as much as possible, they were reminiscent of the New York scene (street vendors, horse and buggy, central park, etc.). The mini games were tons of fun and not hard at all. Didn't pay too much attention to the background or sound effect as I have a splitting headache and tuned it way down.
The one thing I did notice different in this version of the game (I've been doing a marathon of them all) is that you CAN go back into a location, as long as you haven't left the LEVEL, and look for a key, apple or magnifying glass you may have missed.
What I dislike about this game (and all of them in this series) is that while there is a "meter" showing how many keys/apples you've found, there is nothing to denote how many of the magnifying glasses you've found. There's even a little gold key and apple icon that turns off when you've found either of them but NOTHING for the poor little magnifying glass. Another "hmmm" moment for me.
I truly enjoyed this game, especially the part about being about to go back and find the missing key/apple/magnifying glass in a location. But, there were a few little tidbits that has me on the fence about whether this will be a purchase. I own one and already have 2 on my "buy" list. So, while I'm thinking about this one for myself, I encourage anyone who LOVES HOGs, mini games or enjoys a bit of sleuthing to give this game a try.
Happy Gaming! Oh, yeah, I LOVE NEW YORK! Just had to go there. LOL.
