You all know that iWin is a game site that sells download games. What you may not know is that iWin also has a game studio that makes a lot of these games. Ever hear of Jewel Quest? Jewel Quest Mysteries? Jojo’s Fashion Show? Yep, those are ours.
Today we have a great new hidden object game to add to those illustrious titles – House of Wonders: Babies Come Home. This is, without a doubt, the best hidden object game I’ve played in a loooong time.
Until I played it, I was actually a little biased against House of Wonders: Babies Come Home. Between it and that Swiffer commercial, I’ve had Baby come back…you can blame it all. On. Me! In my head for about a week now.
The story is pretty simple; Larry and his wife are expecting quintuplets, and you can help them make pay for the blessed event by earning money playing each level. You can then try to increase your earnings in the casino, or purchase goodies like bottles, beds and nursery upgrades in the Delivery Prep and Baby Mart.
2 things really set this apart from the I-Spy crowd:
1) The hidden object screens are bright and colorful, and most importantly, clear. There’s a big difference between an object that’s cleverly hidden and one that’s just hard to see because the screen is so murky, or the objects are blurry.
This definitely falls in the cleverly hidden camp, especially in levels like “The River” where objects can either be static on the side of the screen, or floating by in a stylized waterscape.
2) The mini games! Whether you’re matching identical people floating in outer space, playing a tri-peaks style solitaire game, or using a spotlight to find people in a darkened theater, the mini games are like nothing I’ve seen before in a hidden object game!
They’re almost more fun than the main game. Almost. Together they make for a really excellent and unique gaming experience.
Even if you think you’ve seen everything that hidden object games have to offer, give this one a shot. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
If you’ve already played it, I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment and tell me what you think!
