Shop-n-Spree - Leave the Super Store Behind!
Shop-n-Spree is a hidden object game with a theme mostly found in the time-management games
- running your own Department Store. With game play really challenging and diverse, colors
bright and theme appealing the game constitutes one of the best samples of non-mysterious
hidden object games of all times.
Large business is everything? I don't think so!
Otherwise the heroine of the game wouldn't have a single chance in her competition with the
giant Super Store trying to save her family Department Store from losing all its customers.
As you might understand, the story of the game is mainly about attracting and retaining
customers for your store and not letting the business shark buy your enterprise in order to
construct a parking lot in its place. So you start your struggle, providing perfect customer
service, the widest product range and the lowest prices.
The game play, as I already said, is hidden object. You have a department dedicated to some
certain theme, like living-room or gardening and camping, and customers coming there for
certain goods. There are three "special promotions" for each week, that is three levels
among which you can choose. And for each level you have a sales goal and a time limit.
Apparently, you need to meet the goal within the limit. Once the goal is reached the level
is completed, so you don't have to use all the time in order to earn more money. Actually,
you don't need it, as there are no upgrades or bonuses to acquire.
The selling process is the following: each customer has a cloud near him or her with the
list of items they want to buy, like a green handbag or a sports magazine, for example. The
items can be defined in words or pictures depending on the customer type. When you find a
necessary object you either click on it and then on the customer or drag it to him.
Tip: try to fulfill orders from each customer in a row, that way you earn combos and maximize your profit.
If you are stuck, as in most HOGs you have a number of hints (maximum 5) for help. Hints can
be earned by finding magnifying glasses or playing mini-games. There are also Super Hints
that help you find three items at a time. And one great thing about hints - you can choose
which particular item you want to find with its help.
And, as I just mentioned the mini-games, let's talk about them a bit. The games are offered
after each hidden object level and present different types of matching, memory and find
differences tasks, some really exciting and innovative, I should say. Besides hints you can
also earn unlock stars for each game, and once you've collected three the game is unlocked
and accessible separately from Main Menu.
The visuals, as I already said, are amazing. All the colors of the rainbow are at your
disposal, so don't expect to find a single gloomy scene here.
