Hidden Expedition: Devils Triangle
Adventure Hidden Object
-Great Graphics and Sounds and Voice Overs.
-Medium to Hard Puzzles.
Hints are some what limited but replenish every level.
If Adventure Hidden Object Games are for you, I say Try it first. If you like it Happy Adventure Object Hunting to you.

It's not a simple hidden object game, it has a lot of puzzles, always differents and very imaginative.

This is the most fun Hidden Object game I've played. I love how you can click everywhere and not get penalized, in fact, it's like you are invited to. It's super easy to overlook things, but I'm not complaining, that makes it more challenging.

I enjoyed playing this game. Graphics and puzzles were very good. It has a logical progression, and was very entertaining. I recommend the sequel, 'Hidden Expeditions: The Uncharted Islands', as well. Together, they really rock!

The bio core has been stolen by pirates and you are sent to recover it. The storyline is fun, the graphics are nice, and it is simple, but not too simple. You are given 4 hints to start that will slowly recharge. If you don?t use hints, you can acquire more than 4 during the charging. If you are doing a puzzle you can?t solve, just click ?hint? to skip it. Items aren?t too hard to find and figuring out what to do next isn?t difficult. I recommend it.

HIDDEN EXPEDITIONS ARE A GREAT SERIES
STORY: 5 fairly long chapters. Your organization (H.E.A.T.) has sent you to investigate the disappearance of a pilot in the Bermuda Triangle. You begin your investigation on a submersible, only to have an accident and end up on an inhabited uncharted island, where time stands still. The cast of characters you meet are somewhat intriguing. Ends with a cliffhanger.
WHAT YOU GET:
Logbook with information entries, tasks and character profiles.
Information entries provide clues to help advance in the game, as well as fun facts and an entertaining backstory.
Replayable as HO can appear in different locations with the HOS.
GAMEPLAY: Nonlinear gameplay. There are numerous locations and lots to do, with much back-and-forth. You can interact with characters as much as you like. You?ll encounter quite a few twists and turns. If you find yourself as to what to do next, either look at your task list or click hint for guidance. Inventory items sometimes need to be combined by placing one over the other (there?s a yellow glow around the objects.
HOS & PUZZLES: HOS are very nicely-drawn and detailed. HOS may be list-driven, theme-oriented or find pairs of related objects. Clicking on an item in the list will show a silhouette of that item. Using a hint within the HOS will show you where the item is. Puzzles are usually original or with enough twist to keep them interesting. Hint can help solve the puzzles by making the first move or placing an item where it belongs. Clicking on hint more than once may solve the puzzle for you or allow you to skip it.
The locations are beautifully drawn. Music is apropros to the game?s atmosphere, as are the wonderful sound effects. You get a full set of hints at each level. No random clicking penalty, so explore away. This time, I forgot to track one time period, so don?t know the total time, but it was at least average length for me. The first time I played, I didn't track at all.

Hidden Expedition: Devils Triangle
everything was good BUT the ending
What is next??
October 8, 2012
Aww, yeah! We're goin' on an adventure!
First off: if you watch the video preview of this game, it does not do the graphics justice!
This had a bit of a "steam punk" feel to me. I liked that I could "ask" as many or as few questions as I wanted to. Found the game-play entertaining without being easy or hair-pullingly frustrating!

Strategy Guide is absolutely necessary!!!!!
BEWARE!!!This is a beautiful game in graphics and adventure BUT you will NEVER figure out the process to proceed through it without the Stategy Guide(purchase separately). So therefore, the game becomes more costly! Be prepared to PAY for PLAY$$$$$!

Good beginning, but becomes frustrating
This game is a welcome change from all of the dark, psychotic HO and adventure games out there. I really enjoyed the lighter, more humorous setting and characters. It is showing its age, with only one level of play, no instructions for puzzles, and no map.
At the beginning, it was clear what I needed to do, and I enjoyed the change from the usual HO "junkpile" with the "match related pairs" challenge. Yes, many of them required some non-linear thinking, but that was what made them a fun challenge. Most of the puzzles
However, as the game continues, actions become less and less logical and coherent. Sometimes the journal contained necessary information; other times, I just had to randomly move the cursor around, hoping for something to happen. Ultimately, I resorted to the walk through.
By chapter 5, there are no HOSs, only puzzles. And tedious, drawn-out puzzles with dozens of steps at that. I admit that I got bored and quit at that point.
I really wish that I could recommend this game, but it just doesn't hold up.
