There are quite a few hidden object scenes that are mostly interactive lists of words, silhouettes,and pictures. All of HOS puzzles have a morphing item in them. Most of the objects are quite easy to find but the morphing objects morph rather fast.
The puzzles are fun and interesting. Most of them are on the easy side. 17 puzzles and 15 HOS are up to replay. There are only 40 collectibles to find. They are 8 looking sings of two dragons. There are 22 achievements to earn and a whole lot of media extras to download: concept art, wallpaper, soundtrack, and a souvenir room.
