When I think of hidden object games for mobile, a few titles usually come to mind. There are the likes of Hidden City and Seeker’s Notes, with their suspenseful mysteries and paranormal quests, and then there is Hidden Hotel: Miami Mystery from WhaleApp, notable for its light-hearted tone, bright color palette, and fun concept. Think Gardenscapes, but with hidden objects!
Like all free-to-play mobile games, it is not easy to become an expert of Hidden Hotel: Miami Mystery and breezily beat all levels. This collection of tips and tricks are accumulated from my months of following Oliver’s journey through this mysterious hotel and hopefully will help you progress through the game at an even faster speed!
Collect Multiple Objects Consecutively
Hidden Hotel: Miami Mystery has plenty of rooms to explore and thus, a plethora of themed hidden object scenes. These scenes award you with stars that can be used to advance the main storyline. In order to fill up and collect a star, you need as many points as possible. Apart from remembering objects’ places and finding them fast, another way to boost your points is to maximize your combo bonus. This can be earned if you are able to find several objects consecutively before the combo bar at the top of the screen runs out. I suggest that instead of finding objects one by one, you scan the scene for multiple objects and collect them one right after another.
Use Max Combo and Feed the Parrot on Familiar Scenes
Another easy tip to maximize the points you collect from each level is to remember to use the max combo power-up and feed the parrot wisely. The max combo power-up fixes the combo bar at its maximum limit all throughout the level, which allows you to earn a combo bonus with every object you find no matter the speed. By feeding the parrot, you can get 3 times the reward from each level. This is incredibly useful as it will not only multiply your combo bonus by three, but your time bonus, coins, and everything else as well. Since much of this also has to do with your ability and skills to find objects fast, deploying them on scenes that you are familiar with will leverage your advantage even further.
Remember All Available Free Energy Sources
Hidden Hotel: Miami Mystery might be challenging at times, but one thing that the game is quite generous with is giving your free energy – you just have to know where to look! If you don’t want to wait for your energy bar to reload, there are various ways and techniques to get free energy and lengthen your playtime. One of the best ways to do this is to use stars collected from hidden object scenes to complete story quests and complete the day. At the end of each day, you will be rewarded with a full energy bar. I recommend saving up on stars and use them to complete the day only when you are running low on energy, in order to double your play session!
Moreover, you can play hidden object scenes to complete your collections and earn free energy. Some other ways include watch advertisement videos, join a club and request for energy from other club members, spin the daily reward wheel, complete daily tasks, and place top three in competitive events, which often reward you with limited-time unlimited energy.
Collect and Use Boosters Strategically
This fourth Hidden Hotel tip might be obvious, but it still worth keeping in mind. Apart from max combo and parrot bonuses that are used before each level, the game comes with three boosters that you can use during the level. They can be super helpful if used strategically and only when you really struggle with a scene.
Keys automatically removes three objects from the list, so it makes sense to only use this as a last resort if you only have a small number of objects lefts to find. Chronometer adds an extra 45 seconds to your timer, so use this if you are confident that you will be able to find all the remaining items in the added time. Last but not least is the extremely valuable radar, which scans the whole scene area for a few seconds and reveals the objects on the list to you. This is a rare booster that is expensive to buy and difficult to come by, so be careful about using it and only use it if you have enough time left in the level.
Participate in Challenge “Pink Energy” Events
Every so often, Hidden Hotel will host challenge events that require the use of pink energy to play. There are three types of these events; Sunny Sprint, Save the Parrot, and Top Seeker. All of these events are not easy to complete, but they are definitely worth participating in as they usually reward you with some free boosters and other bonuses. Playing Sunny Sprint and Save the Parrot events reward you with extra pink energy you can redeem at any time, which is helpful if you want to rank high in the competitive Top Seeker event. These challenge events are also part of the reason why Hidden Hotel: Miami Mystery is such fun and addicting in the first place!
