Art Mogul is one of the recently realesed games into the hidden object. The game does stand out a bit with its story and setting and tasks. You are going to deal with all kinds of paintings and actually do your own business, rather than solve mysteries and escape from dangers.
The search for items is a part of every of the above mentioned activities.
This game offers you an opportunity to know what the life of an art businessman looks like. The game is actually seems to be more a combination of hidden object and simulation/strategy genres. You are to go all the may from an amateur to a gallery owener.
You get a short tutorial before you are left on your own. But of course you still get some directions in the game. The basic activities here are buying paintings, selling them for higher prices, bidding at the auctions, and identifying fake art. That all also involves travelling around the world. You might be wondering right now about what that has to do with hidden object routine. The search for items is actually a part of every of the above mentioned activities.
When you are to buy a new painting you need to get the best discount you can. That is accomplished by making friends with the gallery owners. And that is done by showing your expertise in the area of the art you are looking at. And that is done by finding different elements on the given paintings.
You also go to other places to look for paintings. But those unofficial sellers often offer you fakes. You identify those by a kind of a find-the-difference games. Bidding is also done by clicking the Bid button and getting rid of other bidders. That happens when you find the listed items on the painting. There are also requests that you can accept from the auctions. The requests for certain painting usually make you fly over somewhere else and get that painting.
In this way you are to gradually make enough money for your own gallery. The graphics are good enough for a game about art. The only fault I could find was that I would have to look for the same items if I had to go back to a painting I already played with. Why not make a different list of things to find? There are ususally not more than three items per painting anyway.
The fans of hidden object and art with appreciate the mixture of these two areas.
