4 out of 5

PROS

  • Family safe game content.
  • Great sound design and music.

CONS

  • Gameplay can get very repeptitive, and at times a little stale.
  • When zoomed in, the level image gets blurry and hard to spot items.
  • Touch controls can be finicky at times, not registering found items at first click.

VERDICT

This game may be quite worth the price depending on how much you enjoyed the ‘Where’s Wally’ type scavenger hunt books. However, if you aren’t a fan of quietly looking for hidden objects, then maybe think twice about buying this game.

Yard Sale: Hidden Treasures Sunnyville is a hidden object game for the iPhone. You have just moved into a new town and having heard of a best house magazine competition decide to hit the local garage sales in order to redecorate your house. The game has you traveling to different garage sales and giving you a checklist specific items to search for.

The controls are basic, look around the garage sales by dragging your finger around the screen and tap any items you find to collect them. The controls work but at times need a few taps for the item to register as found. The game also consists of small mini games where you do certain tasks either for a character or in order to fix up an item for your house.

The visuals are well done and vibrant, however when zooming in during a garage sale, the level can look a bit pixelated and make hunting for item a little harder. The sound is great, each character you meet has a different music track that matches their personality. The game is single player only, but gives players the option to play the career mode casually or timed for a challenge.

The scavenger hunting gameplay of Yard Sale: Hidden Treasures Sunnyville is a definite throwback to the old ‘Where’s Wally’ Books. While the game can get a tad repetitive and frustrating at times, it’s still a good game with safe and fun content that can be played by the whole family.
