a new hidden-object game developed and published by Sudden Games. The game does have some innovative twists.
they are not as worked out as they could have been. So I find it hard to say if
the game is all good or all bad. Those are balanced in this game.
You are to go through a
number of garage and yard sales to get $30,000 for a boutique in Beverly Hills.
You play as a girl named
Shirley who wants to open her own boutique in Beverly Hills. As it's not a time-management game it takes the

So you are going to spend all of your time doing

So here it is, Yard Sale
Junkie, a hidden object game with some fresh twists that need some more work.
