Flux Family Secrets: The Ripple Effect - Travelling Through Time


Flux Family Secrets: The Ripple Effect is one of the latest releases in the hidden object game genre. Developed by Skunk Studios and published by Big Fish Games the games takes you on a journey through time and space.



Jesse grew up not knowing much about her past, so she's excited to receive a letter from the Flux Family promising answers if she helps them retrieve various historical artifacts by travelling through time with the help of a special device. 



In each of the game's 10 chapters you'll visit three different historically significant locations, such as Shakespeare's theatre in Renaissance-era England, ancient China in Confucious's time, and the famous Abbey Road recording studio in the 1960s.


Here you'll interact with famous historical figures themselves to help them find historically significant items (like Einstein's missing E=MC2 equation) that fall into broad categories like Art, Music and Invention.


Some special "tool" items are found intact, and you'll use these to solve puzzles, such as using a lockpick to gain access to a cupboard. Mostly, though, you're actually searching for pieces of items rather than whole ones.




Flux Family Secrets also boasts its fair share of mini-games, which are challenging and enjoyable, but which can be skipped if you would prefer. (Doing so adds extra minutes onto your overall completion time, though.)  


The game is untimed, and there are unlimited hints provided you wait a few seconds for them to recharge in between uses. Using a hint not only reveals an object's location, but also offers suggestions about what to do next if you get stuck.


There are only ten historical figures and ten time periods in the game, so you'll find yourself visiting the same ones several times in different contexts.The story offers some intrigue as Jesse starts to have doubts about the noble motives of the Flux Family. (Be warned, the ending creates more questions than it answers.)


This is Flux Family Secrets: The Ripple Effect in a nutshell. If you want to get even closer, get the trial version and discover it for yourself.
