Gameplay is comparable to others in the genre with the likes of clue collection, interviews and information finding puzzles.

The main focus though is the aforementioned hidden object gameplay and is well designed with colourful scenes where you’ll have to find a random list of items along with a vital piece of information referred to only as the clue.
