A Girl in the City
New York is one of the greatest backgrounds that you can take for a good game. But when it is the only great thing about the game, even New York is not enough. The game follows a story of a girl who followed her dreams all the way to New York. But it turned out to be not that easy. As it always is, isn't it?
The game is full of hidden object levels. You will spend most of the time there.
A Girl in the City is a girly game from start to finish. The very small picture of the game with those shiny pink heels says it all without even further words. The title discribes the story in four words. There isn't too much to it, but still. You play as a young girls named Laura, who is waiting for the job of her dreams in the big city.
She came from her home town with a journalist degree, but she wasn't lucky enough at it yet. While she is waiting for the big one, she is willing to do the smaller jobs. That's why you start with cleaning the kitchen surrounded by pizza boxes and other related to pizza items.
But soon things change for her and she starts to get closer to her dreams. The game is full of hidden object levels. You will spend most of the time there. The very first one seems a bit strange as you look for the streets and places names, taxis and boats on the map of New York.
But after that things become more classic. You get a clattered room and clean it up item after item. The items are not shown here all at once, but the new ones appear at the bottom as you find the items. There are hints if you get stuck. They are called clues and they are limited. You can earn them as a special star bonus.
That same star bonus will give you time, not clues if you are going to play the times mode, not the standard one. Then there are also mini-games, that fit into the hidden object levels very well and serve as a good change of activity. They are fun to play too.
The game features pretty decent graphics with all the items in the clattered locations being related to the place and situation. There is no voice-over unfortunately, so you will have to read all of the dialogues. Most of the time you are going to listen to the big city noise as the background.
A Girl in the City is a game that is better to be checked before bought, so never underestimate the free trial download.
