Buckingham PalaceHidden Mysteries - Buckingham Palace: Hunt for the Royal Treasure!

GameMill Entertainment and Gunnar Games offer you a new hidden object game of fascinating quality. The story, the graphics and the game play combine each other in a way that make this game stand out of all the numerous hidden objects produced lately.

Have you ever been to the Buckingham Palace? It's a perfect way to start the tour!

Buckingham PalaceWhat do you know about Buckingham Palace? That it's situated in London and is the residence of the British royal family? That it's a beautiful and majestic building? Anything else?

This game will bring you to the very heart of British monarchy and history, tell you the story of one of the greatest constructions in the United Kingdom and take you to an excursion along its halls and corridors, to the very secret passages and the kitchen - the centre of any home. You will learn that Buckingham Palace was built in 1703 by the Duke of Buckingham John Sheffield and in 1761 it was chosen by King George III to be his family's residence and much, much more. You will visit the Queen's Gallery, the Victoria Memorial and the Admirality Arch  and know the history of the Crown Jewels. And, of course, you will enjoy your favorite puzzle game play while revealing the old mysteries hidden all over the place.

Buckingham PalaceAs to the game play, it's the combination of hidden object, quest and puzzle. You are offered to find a number of items hidden on the screen first. If you are stuck, you can use your hint credits which can be replenished by way of finding hidden crown in every stage. Each crown is worth 5 hint credits, and hints' price differs depending of what you want to see. In order to get a hint you should click on the name of the item you can't find. You will be given three options: to see the silhouette (1 hint credit), the whole look of the item (3 credits) or to be shown the very location of the item on the screen (5 credits). Depending on how exactly stuck you are, you can choose any. I would recommend to start with silhouettes, as they can be very helpful (unless it's a simple rectangle).

After you have found all the items in a stage (which means several locations), you will encounter a puzzle to be solved with the help of special items in your inventory, found during the level.

Tip: if you don't know what to do, see carefully where your cursor changes its color - that's the spot where you should act.

You will also face some word and other types of puzzles. I found some of them uite confusing, but in case you are not in brain-teasers of unknown principle, you have a nice remedy for the problem - a Solve button.

On the whole the game is very engaging, and you get really addicted as the story unwraps around you and you start finding the legendary stones one by one. You can venture into your tour over the Buckingham Palace in either Timed or Relaxed Mode - as you wish.

You are welcome, Sir!
