Alex Hunter: Lord of the Mind

Two Difficulty Settings
It has been a while since we came across a real-solid standard edition Hidden Object Adventure game. Alex Hunter from Alawar and Epic Star is a dark theme HOPA inspired by a classic detective story.
The game is visually impressive, although we think that the graphics are a little too muddy. The scenes are highly detailed with stunning shades and effects. The voice overs are nice as well as the music. We love the 3D elements Alex Hunter has from 3D characters and dimensional environment.
There is nothing special about the gameplay of Alex Hunter, it plays like other HOPAs but being done in a good way. It is not really a straightforward game, which makes it fairly challenging to play. Puzzles are fun and tricky while Hidden Object scenes are few and far between, they are standard and well-cluttered.
Being only a Standard Edition game, it is quite a surprise to see Collectibles and Strategy Guide included in the game – anyways, that is surely a big plus. Furthermore, it also has a long playtime which means that your 7 bucks spent on this game would not be wasted.
