Sphera is a new release into the hidden object/adventure genre. You are to follow a little girl into a dream world. Even though the story of the game seems so familiar, it is pretty unique compared to the games of the genre.
The environment is all turned upside down and inside out.
If you really like the adventures of Alice in Wonderland, you will most probably enjoy this game too. The characters are different. So are their stories but there is much resemblence.
Tess is the girl whose story you are introduced to. She is kind of abandoned by everyone from here family. Her father is at war, her mom is working hard, and her brother is being totally mean to her. So once upon a time she finds a glass ball, which takes her into a different world. That world turns out to be a dream world of children like her. I'm not sure how exactly all that works, but her goal now is to get out of there.
As she travels she meets all kinds of characters. The environment is all turned upside down and inside out. The graphics are not very realistic, but rather cartoon-style but it doesn't take away the pleasure of being there.
There is enough hidden object levels where the scenes are totally cluttered with all kinds of items but it only makes it look more fantastic.
There are also different mini-games along the way. They are fun to play and some of them are not that easy. The biggest part of the game is the your journey to different locations where you interact with all kinds of items. Most of the times you are to collect many different pieces of one item that is to be used afterwards elsewhere. You will have to do a lot of that here. Some items become active only after you accomplished something else first.
All in all the game is very satisfying with all it offers. The only problem I found was the lack of instructions at certain points, but extra challenge makes it even better, doesn't it?
