The Nightshift Code - Exciting Hidden Object Adventure
Even though tons of casual games, and hidden object ones in particular,
are being developed and published so very often nowadays, their
developers do manage to make some of them very outstanding.
The Nightshift Code is a newly born
hidden object game, developed by Black
Hammer Productions and published by PlayFirst.
You are to dive into the sequence of crazy events and travelling around
the world with Mike and Isabel.
From the very first look the game seems to be very attractive. I mean
the way it looks and sounds. You are introduced with a story of a museum security
guard named Mike. The game begins with him catching a thief in a museum. The
thief is a young pretty girl Isabel. In a few seconds Mike understands that
Isabel isn't just a thief when she tells him that his dad is actually alive and
he needs their help. Soon after that they find themselves running from some
enemies that were following Isabel. And from this moment on the game story
reminds a Hollywood action movie with events changing
one another. Mike and Isabel travel across the globe trying to solve the mystery
and help Mike's father. The story of the game is presented in a comic book style.
The music is something that I really enjoyed because it fits the story so very
well and is really cool.
The game can be played in one of two modes - Story or Arcade.
The game features two modes - Story and Arcade. The modes are
pretty much the same but the difference is that you are limited in time in the
Arcade Mode and you don't get a story part unlike the Story Mode.
You are to
visit 18 locations in total. There are also mini-games between the
seek-and-find levels. But these are for the Story Mode only. Needless to say, I
guess, about the general gameplay of the seek-and-find levels as they are
I would only like to mention about one thing in those levels.
Often times you are given to find multiple items. The thing is that the word is
usually polysemic and represented by different items, for example, a queen or a
tape. You are also allowed to use the hint button but 3 times only. If you
click on the wrong thing you are taken several points or several seconds,
depending on the mode you are playing (Story or Arcade respectively).
The Nightshift Code is a game to give
a few hours of great gaming experience.
