DominiGames’ Hidden Expedition series game, which was released on December 5, 2020, has returned, but it took us a while to get our hands on it.
A wealthy guy claims that a new source of energy is tied to a long-dead civilization that is claimed to be buried beneath the sea, and you must play a variety of free find items games to discover it.
Is it eternally gone, or will you be able to discover its secrets?
The gameplay is identical to that of previous Domini games, and that therefore you can change the difficulty mode at any time by selecting the Menu button in the lower-left corner.
You can always turn off interactive help by hitting the “Skip Tutorial” option if you want.
Use the Hint button if you get stuck.
To travel between areas fast, use the Map. It’s at the lower-left corner of the screen.
A secret collectible can be found in every location in the game. The number of items you’ve located is indicated in the lower-right corner.
To access another portion of the scene, press the arrow to pan the camera.
A speech bubble appears when you select a character and indicates that you can talk to them.
To see your objectives, click the H.E.L.P. box.
When you press the navigation button, a list of all available exits from the current scene will appear.
We didn’t have a lot of fun playing this game. The graphics were alright, although it’s antiquated and glitchy, as others have noted. We skipped a lot of the mini-games because the controls are either broken or so bad that they don’t operate at all. In some cases, the directions are illogical.
The back-and-forth is infuriating. It’s hard to see everything a place has to offer all at once. Certain regions are only accessible if you have already visited another location. So you go somewhere and then realize you’re missing one item, so you go back to where you were and look for it. Return and put it to good use. Repeat. There’s also simply too much plot and not nearly enough game action.
We weren’t expecting DominiGames to make such a fuss, and we hope they don’t make the same mistakes again.
