    Keys to Manhattan review

    This is a crazy year for hidden object games where we were presented with some enthralling games and some that proved to be a real dud. Now, I was always a fan of this genre of games and I lapped up anything that was served to me. Keys to Manhattan pushed me hard to think whether there are still such developers who think that gamers are not the choosers. Well, here is a bold statement from a veteran gamer “We do not even touch poor hidden object games, leave aside playing”! Since I have to review this game so you all have to bear with my plain blithering (this is my job).

    Keys to Manhattan was meant to be a pure Hidden Object Game but instead turns out to be a complete mockery of the whole gaming genre. This game has two stories that run parallel to each other. One is that Emily, the protagonist of story, have to search the entire city of Manhattan to find hidden treasures and this would all be used to save your house from getting demolished. The other story deals with the sudden disappearance of your uncle and until and unless you find out all the keys you are not going to find the exact reason behind the disappearance.

    We all are aware of the fact that hidden objects are there because we have to showcase our skills in finding them; what about a game where you are not even allowed to use your search skills? Well, this is exactly what Keys to Manhattan does! The objects are so poorly concealed that even a baby could find them out. The scenes are really well designed as far as the graphics are concerned, but this is the only thing that the game offers and nothing else. Using the mouse to highlight the objects you are searching makes the game a cakewalk. For instance, if you are trying to find the pirate hat, just take your mouse to different corners of the screen and the hidden objects start to stick out; locate the hat when it gets highlighted.

    If you had played the mind boggling “Princess Isabella A Witch’s Curse” or “Drawn the Painted Tower” then you are definitely going to get frustrated with Keys to Manhattan. The mini puzzles that you have to solve will pose no challenge at all; Kindergarten-stuff is what you have on your hands! One is going to get bored with the game even before one finishes the first scene. Only the new gamers of this gaming genre may find something new otherwise it is just a waste of time and money.

    Conclusion: Keys-to-Manhattan has nothing new to offer but takes away even the basics that are needed to make a hidden object game a hidden object game. A gamer takes up every game as a new challenge, but this game is going to take away any zeal left in you to play hidden object games. The only element that comes near the satisfactory level is the graphics but that too is not mesmerizing. You are not going to gain anything by playing this game; instead you are at risk of losing all interest in playing hidden object games altogether.
