MyTona aren’t new to hidden object games, having released The Secret Society: Hidden Mystery in 2012. The Russian developer introduced mobile gamers to a brand new installment in its ‘hidden mystery’ series last year with Seekers Notes, taking the story to the cursed city of Darkwood. And with its latest update, Darkwood is looking a little more festive, and has a few more unwelcome neighbours to boot.
If you’re a fan of The Secret Society, you should find the gameplay of Seekers Notes just as fun. You have to discover clues around 28 highly detailed locations against the clock, solving puzzles and talking to the locals as you go.
Each stage of the game reveals a little more about Darkwood’s history, and the evil curse that you hope to free it from. If you stumble upon an especially tricky puzzle, you can request help from a friend on social media. They can leave you useful objects and hints for you to use, and in doing so boost your research reward once you solve it. There are 222 collections to discover during the 1200 quests, so plenty to keep a ‘seeker’ busy.
Along with a touch of frost and some festive decorations, the new Christmas update brings with it several unsavory visitors to Darkwood. There’s Sir Tubby - an evil snowman, the Ice Queen, a penguin that isn’t as cute as it looks, among others. It’s up to you to work out how to defeat each one by solving puzzles and using objects you’ve discovered. You’ll be rewarded with plenty of bonus items in the process, including toys, candy and fixers (which you can use to assemble your collection). But once the event is over, the snow will disappear from the cursed city, as will the new arrivals, taking the rewards with them. So you better be quick.
