    Best Hidden Object Games of 2021

    We looked, we searched, we dug very deep indeed, and we found the best hidden object games available today. We even managed to pick the winner!

  • Refreshing take on hidden object puzzles! Jan 31, 2018

    By Gracegsx
    This is definitely challenging but still so enjoyable to play! Love the added element of interactivity to open doors, dig in snow piles, pressing buttons and shifting objects in order to unearth & find the object you are looking for. I enjoy just opening & tapping on things just to discover what all can be manipulated. The clues, scenes & sounds are so creative, clever & humorous. One thing I feel that would totally sky rocket this game to the another level and that I would absolutely LOVE to see would be the ability for players to create their own custom list of hidden objects (with customized clues) to find and then challenge other players to find them. The custom challenges could be made by forwarding to friends or by being accessed by anyone on a server. Those custom challenges could even be rated by other players. Filters & ability for players to flag could be used to ensure inappropriate language is not used in the clues. I think this would vastly increase the exposure, playability & revenue for this game. Revenue could be a 1 time fee to unlock the feature, or monetize by playing an ad in order to be able to play a new custom challenge. There is just so much interesting objects & folks to look at & explore and I often find myself thinking “that object should so be on the list” Thank you for creating such an awesome and refreshing unique game! Was thrilled to find there was an update with added content!

    It is a beautifully designed game. The design is simple yet feels complete. It is challenging and entertaining. However, there are a few things I'd like to change/add: - the automatic rotation doesn't stay locked, each time I open the game I have to change it again. - any form of synchronization would be appreciated. Once I had lost all the progress for some reason and had to re do everything from the start. - the option for clues would be great, as some things are really heard to find.
  • Oh, how I adore Hidden Folks 🤍 Jun 5, 2020

    By InvisaGoth
    It may very well be the perfect game! The genius and straight-up craftsmanship in the detail and originality of the art, the wonderfully wandering exploration of every odd yet familiar landscape and each one cleverly layered with quirk and humor, meeting all of the equally strange and lovable creatures that inhabit these worlds, the simple secreted treats and overall wabi sabi that make it brilliantly engaging and enjoyable for those of us who relish such things... which I absolutely do. Above all, it’s undeniably one-of-a-kind and that is increasingly rare in these crazy (yet somehow still dull) days... I can only imagine the volume of blood, sweat and tears that went into the entire Hidden Folks process... I’m sure it was a profound labor of love for everyone involved, as well as an exercise in sheer force of will, but I am personally SO grateful to the creators for blessing us with this gem of a game. Thank you all! I look forward to seeing what other weirdness you folks get into... xox

    I Love this game! It's challenging and funny. I love the hand drawn art. It does have stability issues which can lead to corrupted data. Overall a good purchase.

    I have loved this kind of hide and seek game since I became a big fan of Highlights magazine as a kid. I’ve enjoyed this game from nearly the day it originally was released. Loved it!! I have waited for the update which was to add more content to original game. Man, I saw the game was updated!! I wanted to snap my fingers to just make all aspects of my life freeze, so I could immediately sneak off to indulge my need to play this game again. The added content was fantastic!! I was prepared to look for my favorite little peeps all night, consequences be damned, but alas, the newest material did not require that kind of sacrifice. It was over much too SOON ! I am aware of the time required to create the little peeps in the new hiding places. I’m thrilled to have gotten an update at all. Thanks for all your hard work. Hidden Folks is a blast for this 58 yr old homebody 🐇🐇🐏🐑🦍🦍

    This is my all time favorite game. After finishing it, I've tried to find other games like it and I can't find anything that really competes...not this simple, yet extremely enjoyable and challenging. I really hope you have another game like this in the making! I love it!!!
  • Just ok. Wish I hadn’t spent the money. Oct 15, 2020

    By random reviewer 14
    So I really wanted to like this game. Found it because I really like the two dots annual Halloween scavenger hunt and they say this game is what it was based off of. But there are just one too many small things in this game I don’t like that made me regret spending money on it. Had there been a trial play option before purchase I wouldn’t have bought it. For one thing, you can’t zoom out to see the whole map. It makes it hard to go from area to area since each level is very spread out. Also, some of the objects are SO tiny they are not even fun to look for since they are ridiculously hard to spot. This is made worse by the fact everything is black and white. Please add some color! But I do like the interactive features of being able to move objects on the map, open doors etc. and the cryptic hints for each object to find are fun too. Overall this game has lots of potential but still a ways to go before I would enjoy it enough to spend the money or recommend to others.

    This is similar to animated where's waldo. Cute and one of the more original hidden object games. I've only gone through 6 or 7 levels. It's best played on a tablet not a phone because the images are small to begin with.
  • Such An Awesome Game😍 Jun 16, 2018

    By bigfabz
    Please just do yourself a favor and get this game. If you’re tired of all the lame freemium games out there and want to spend your money on a quality one-time-purchase product, this is your game. The amount of detail and effort the developers put into creating this game is astounding. It’s extremely fun to play and it’ll keep you occupied for hours. It’s actually very challenging to complete every stage to its entirety but never frustrating. I have no complaints about this game besides the fact that I just wish there were like a hundred stages because it’s so fun but new levels are on the way so I’m stoked for that! Anyways, this game is amazing and worth every penny; I’m waiting for the beach levels like a 10 year old waiting for Santa to come on Christmas eve. 10/10 game.

    I bought this adventure before to use on my MacBook, couldn't resist to buy it again. There are so many copycats in store but they truly su... can not reach this level. Guys: please make more of it, it is a pleasure to play, it is relaxing with no time or other constraints.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I downloaded this game, but I'm so in love now haha. It's charming, it's funny, it's straightforward with just enough twists, and it's just really well done. There are so many small touches that create such an enjoyable playing experience.
  • Perfect for Where’s Waldo Fans Jan 31, 2019

    By CatherineMorland
    This game is so fun and I fell in love with it as soon as I opened the app. As a kid, I loved Where’s Waldo, I Spy, Highlights, etc. Hidden Folks is a challenging grown up version. The adorable black and white world includes many settings (city, desert, jungle, campground, etc), detailed drawings, animated objects, and interactive controls (you open windows, cut down grass, look inside of logs and rabbit holes, and more). There is no clock or time limit and you can take as long as you want to complete a level. There are no ads, and nothing to distract you while you play. It’s a relaxing game, and even though it’s challenging, it’s not so hard that you get frustrated. You can tell the creators of this app worked very hard to make a visually appealing, quality game.

    It is a beautifully designed game. The design is simple yet feels complete. It is challenging and entertaining. However, there are a few things I'd like to change/add: - the automatic rotation doesn't stay locked, each time I open the game I have to change it again. - any form of synchronization would be appreciated. Once I had lost all the progress for some reason and had to re do everything from the start. - the option for clues would be great, as some things are really heard to find.

  • Not for me, maybe for you Dec 6, 2017

    By Djdixhdnjakakdoekenjririfj
    This game wasn’t for me. I thought perhaps that the aesthetics might appeal, but I got bored too quickly. I supported this developer because this looked like a quality game; and it is. If you like Spot-the-person games then I guarantee this will exceed your expectations. The sheer quality shows in every detail; still, you have to like spotting games first. I was attracted to the unique visuals, and I guess that blurred my judgement a bit, but that’s my fault alone and I do not regret supporting this developer. A second note — if you intend to play this game on a phone, it feels a bit daunting to have all that detail splash in your face. There’s zooming though. Still, I highly recommend purchasing for the iPad instead. It will make a lot of difference. That’s what I’m planning on doing — downloading on my iPad and perhaps playing with a friend. Two pairs of eyes is better than one :)
  • Fantastic. Feb 6, 2018

    By NoJo44
    I really like this game. The clues to each character or object make you think and are great hints. I wish there were at least one additional hint per level. I spent the forever looking for a chicken. I knew what I was looking for and how it was hidden and just could not see it. This almost made me give up, but it was the last thing needed for the game. Also, it would be nice if everything I opened or cut down, etc. stayed that way when I leave and come back. Honestly, the only other thing I would change is the sound effects. It’s funny initially, but then I just kept my phone on silent. Overall, I really enjoy this game. I can use at work for kids with visual perceptual concerns. I think it is creative how things are hidden. It is definitely not your average search and find game. Please keep making more levels! Thank you for the fun.

    Have played just a few levels but it's so fun! 😂 Funny sounds too! And cute minimalistic graphics, although it's super tiny, maybe it'll be better for me to play it on a tablet or something, but it's cute and great! (But what's that about the "checking licence" while being offline, though? Can't I play while offline? 🥺 Wish I could)
  • Delivers Jul 25, 2018

    By PhelineCat
    It delivers what it says it will but maybe it’s not my kind of thing. It’s calm, that’s for sure, but that’s ok. Persistance, sure. I can do that; I can locate 216 countries on the globe (tiny islands can be time consuming) and can identify their flags as well as states, provinces, micro-nations (you know, like Sealand)... I can listen to other stuff while doing this, right? I dunno... I get obsessed with finding that LAST critter or person and it makes me crazy. Maybe I need a momentary hint; a glow, a flash of color, a ghost-like apparition to appear over the darned thing because I can spend as long on the last SINGLE item as on everything else in the region combined and it makes me want to close up the app and go learn Esperanto instead. Or Korean. Probably Korean. Esperanto is too bizarre.

    Would be 5 stars if S-pen was supported. The pen can click on things but it can't move the screen, and with such huge scenes you're constantly moving the screen so the S-pen is useless. Hopefully the developers can fix this. Other than that the game is fun but sometimes overwhelming so I can't play it too long. But I haven't found a hidden object type game that's hard enough, so Hidden Folk is good in that way.

    Not as much fun as I hoped it would be. Although you can zoom on the game area where you are trying to find the hidden people and objects, you can't zoom on the pictures showing you what to look for. I've done a lot of random tapping as a result and have often wound up "finding" things completely accidentally. The sound effects are cute and nice sense of humour though.
  • Good game, but would like some options Apr 25, 2020

    By tlp5104
    I really enjoy playing this game. It’s very imaginative and creative. If you like finding hidden objects and working out puzzles, you’ll like this. However, there are a couple of features that I would love to see offered. You’re given clues on how to find each item, but it would be better if the app provided you a greater hint by highlighting an area where the object is. You can’t get to the next puzzle until you find enough objects to move on and this can become frustrating when the puzzle scenery is very large and you’re trying to find tiny objects. Secondly, I would like to see a “skip puzzle” feature where you can elect to move onto the next puzzle without completing the current one. If this game had those two features, it would make it more enjoyable to me.
