The Hunt for Red Panda is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Different Hidden Object Game!! Such a cute game! It is a hidden object game but it is so different from the current ones. You are looking for a thief who has disguised the valuable paintings by changing them. So you have to find the changes on each painting and remove them. If you use the wrong tool to remove the hidden object, there's a small penalty. Such simple idea but so addicting! I went back to the Big Fish page to look for more like this! I'm now playing the same game but under an alias.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this game! I never review games anymore but since this got such low reviews, I felt like I had to. I know I'm in the minority, but I loved this game. I didn't at first, but once I got into the rhythm of it, it was truly fun. Maybe it's because I'm an artist, but I loved the outrageousness of the images that were splattered all over the classical paintings--I found it very entertaining!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different but Great Game I did not expect much out of this game but I was SO wrong in thinking that. This is not your ordinary HOG, instead it is more of a find and fix game. The game is one of those sleeper games that you must play it to appreciate it. Give it a try and you will love it too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from decent but can use some improvement It has been quite a while since an art restoration game has been issued. Years ago players were given a few of these efforts. The nice part was seeing lots of fantastic artwork, the bad part was most if not all were the dreaded spot the difference style games. Hunt for Red Panda to its credit abstained from using spot the difference techniques. I liked the humor injected into the defiled paintings. Putting a clown nose on a refined lady, an army helmet on a dog, a line of clothes drying as a background, etc. are nice touches. For me the worst part of the game is the inclusion of the bug that can be swatted. To do so requires dropping the solution, the eraser et al to smash the insect. It got to the point I merely ignored the bug entirely. Another egregious faux-pas and that which renders the game a no sale for me is that the player cannot proceed to a new museum ( the game starts in the USA ) until gold stars are acquired for correcting all 10 paintings in the museum. I also feel the game can become a bit tedious after a while because there is lots of repetition as to which errors need correction. Too many microphones, helmets, army tanks and so on. I'll give the game a mild recommendation for imagination. It is certainly a game that can be played with youngsters if for no other reason than to introduce kids to the world of fine art. If I may use a school grading system, the game deserves a B-.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from something different I love this game and bought it, the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is you lose points for mistakes and trying to hit the hornet results in lower scores, I'm going to restart it without hitting the hornet and see how I do

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For a boring, rainy afternoon (or two) quite the right game. My rating is based on playing the entire game. It is a kind of HO, but instead of looking for hidden objects, you have to identify mistakes. Using your different tools, you can eliminate them. Therefor you need an eager eye and a quick hand (or eraser or brush or…) Likes: Great paintings, fine old masterpieces. If you like art, that’s quite interesting. Though some mistakes were quite obvious, some were really good “hidden”, so well-integrated, that they seemed to be original parts of the painting. And there was a lot of humor as well. Dislikes: There is just one type of game only. Nothing else, no mini game, no puzzle, no variation. Very repetitive. The music was nice, but also extremely repetitive and after a while annoying. Good luck, one can mute it. I thought about, is it worth 3 or 4 stars? Because of the simplicity, rather 3 stars. But due to the really nice, humorous and well-crafted details I gave one star extra.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bring art to the people A thumbs up for the devs that tried to think new. However it really reminds me of a bit more dull version of Restoring Rhonda(that I did like until new windows bugged that one and other old games) Basically you have to restore paintings as "The red panda" has added some extra items to them, and you need to remove it using different tools. Then you have to beat the clock to get 1, 2 or 3 stars finding as many wrong additions as you can to earn money for the painting and save your museum. I did like the game, but I do miss something. I found it a bit tedious doing the same thing over and over and nothing new. *Based on demo* I'm not really sure if I'll get this or not. And the best thing I can say is : Try the demo!! If you find it boring after a while, it won't change afterwards.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good idea but could be much better A disgruntled artist is damaging paintings by adding items, sometimes obviously anachronistic, sometimes more difficult to guess. Having dropped solvent on one you need to use scraper, eraser, or paintbrush to repair it, which to me soon gets tedious. There are three hints per round and quite a large selection of minigames to earn more hints, but there doesn't seem to be any indication of how many items are left to find, and there is a timer. The best thing about the game is that it uses less valuable painting by artists I'd never heard of rather than Old Masters, but even this didn't hold my interest for the trial hour. Not as good as Hidden World of Art 2.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Who has destroyed the masterpieces This is more of a ‘purist’ HO game rather than a game that has HO elements to it but is mainly story driven. It is however a quirky game and one which I have not really seen before. Yes there has been other games that have been pure HO, but this is based around the art-world. There is a slight ‘back-story’ in the form of a comic strip at the beginning of the game, but that just sets the scene for the program it does not really develop.in to a full-blown story like most others in this genre. That said I don’t want people to dismiss the game, as it is a quirky game. The basis of the game is that different art ‘master-pieces’ have been ‘re-worked’ by the ‘evil’ protagonist, that is basically the main story. The pictures therefore have things in them that have things in them that weren’t of that era. For example, headphones in a picture that was painted in the 17th century. It is therefore a little bit of thought as to what wasn’t and was around of the different era’s thus in my opinion giving another dimension to the game. The controls are accurate and there are trainer levels indicating what each of the different controls do. There is also a ‘blot you can swot’ for extra coins (though this does get irritating after about the 4th or 5th time on the same screen. There is no VO but then it is not a game where this is warranted or needed. This game is fun and I enjoyed the free trial and the different photographs etc. and the comic strip story, but as to whether I would pay cold hard cash for the game I don’t think I would, I would though recommend it if you had a free token or ‘punch code’ knocking about, or if it was on a BOGOF offer, but whilst the game is fairly innovative it is more of a novelty game.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a buy for me. In this HO game, you find mistakes in great art and fix them with your little dropper as well as a scraper, eraser, or paint brush. You can also swat an annoying hornet who keeps landing on the paintings. You have a certain amount of fixative in your dropper to remove the unwanted objects, so maybe this becomes more challenging in the higher levels. I guess that was about it? After doing five paintings I got bored and quit out. If you enjoy pure HO's and not much storyline beyond a comic-style background, and if you also like finding lobster claws and laptops in fine art, then this is the game for you. It just wasn't a buy for me - too bad, because the idea was original.
