Gotcha: Celebrity Secrets
if you love where's waldo type games, this gem is for you.
It has 5 chapters and 8 levels per chapter ... I took about an hour per chapter and it is very fun, the replay is great because the people to find are never the same...The levels get slightly more difficult as it progresses, like snow, distractions and binocular views to make it tricky...Its well worth the price and good for the game collection.

A very different Hidden Object Game
Finished the game and loved it. It's definitely a different approach to hidden objects when said objects are people in a crowd. You can choose between timed and untimed mode, however, if you want to earn the achievement to finish every level on expert time you will have to play it timed - which I did, so I had to replay some of the later levels, where the crowds were really dense.
Added difficulty came from changing crowds, floating crowds (actually that level was easy), turning on / turning off light, looking at level through binoculars / keyholes. You have to find people either by full view, portrait shot, silhouette or description. However, if you manage to remember how people look like it might get easier.
Wonder if somebody had compiled a list of celebrities in the game: I'm not that great a spotter, but I recognized Kelly Osbourne, New Kids on the Block, Brad Pitt, Alyson Hannigan and Goldie Hawn, among others.
Bottom Line: If you want a different approach to the HOG genre, buy this game.

A nice, light hidden object game
Everything about this game was simply fun. Perhaps it could have been longer, but I tend to play games at an obsessive rate. Gotcha is a nice break from the dark hidden object genre with addictive HOS where players find people, rather than objects. It may sound like a glorified Where's Waldo, and it kind of is. But that's not a bad thing. The HOS aren't entirely straightforward, with object list showing silhouettes, close-ups, and descriptions in various combinations. As the game progresses, the more characters clutter each scene.
Absolutely worth the money and hours I spent on it. High replay value, as you look for different people each time you play a scene. (And no repeating locations!)

ADORED This Game
Brilliant storyline. Classic "Rookie beats Pro" setting.
Medals were awesome.
I loved the minigames at the end of each level.
The characters were cleverly hidden/ A great challenge and still great fun.
Good graphics, very clear.
The game was super fun!
As well as having to find the informers you also had to find 2 other characters in each scene. (usually Gaby and important character for that chapter)
Just a bit more variety would've been nice.
Game is far too short. I was on Chapter 2, Post 7 and still had 11 minutes left of the demo.
100% recommend this game! I ansolutely LOVED it!

Awesome, Different Game!
This game is very cool and different. It's a fun, colorful, and bright game which is an awesome bonus there. And it's full of celebrity gossip, that's another plus. You have to help Gabby come up with stories for her celebrity gossip blog. What's different about this game is that instead of finding objects, you have to find certain people in the crowd. Even though that might sound really easy, it's not, which is good! The storyline and Gabby's blog is hilarious, ESPECIALLY the ending! Another plus is that this is a game that you'll want to play again and again. This game is definitely worth buying!
