Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena - Hidden Object Adventure
There are different types of games in every casual games genre. Some of them somehow become hits and others stay unnoticed. But there are also those that don't reach the top of the mountain so to say, but there is definitely something about them that makes them interesting and catchy.
Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena, developed and published by MumboJumbo, is one of those.
The game takes you to an adventurous journey to different countries of the world in search of the artifacts.
Samantha Swift is the main character of the game you play as. She is an archeologist that travels around the world to find different interesting artifacts to show them later in her museum.
This time she got herself into the search of the six missing roses in the Shield of Athena.
But she is not the only one who tries to find them. The competition takes place between her and two other rivals.
This journey takes her to places like France, Italy or Gualemala. The graphics are hand-drawn and look quite cartoon-like.
You are to go through a number of scenes in every chapter of the story. Every scene is accompanied with a list of items you are to find. The items on the list can be written in white or blue.
The white ones are those that only take clicking to be found. And the blue ones mean that they can only be found by using the special tools that you get in the process.
There is no time limit in the game, so you can relax and take your time and enjoy the game.
The hints are given for every chapter - three hints, but you can get more by finding the lightning bolts in the scenes. You shouldn't also neglect Samantha's words since she often gives some helpful advice.
There are also mini-games for you to play in between the hidden object levels. They are represented by different kinds of puzzles.
As you can see the game has something to be interesting, attractive, challenging and addictive.
