Good twist of Hidden Object genre. Just the problem is, I can't solve them.

Recently gog.com started selling [Tex Murphy] series, and now we have legit way to play that oldies at now. And I found Chris Jones & Aaron Conners made another new game [3 cards to midnight] from this interview. I've not played [Tex Murphy] series yet, however it was another famous adventure game franchise, so curious how it could be.

Well. This is 'Hidden Object', not our old 'Adventure Game'. Anyway both of them have something in common, as 'Point & Click'. 'Hidden Object' could be relative to the 'Adventure Game', so that's fine. Just the problem is, how they twisted Hidden Object.

For plain Hidden Object games, you might find 'Note' picture for 'Note' word. For [3 cards to midnight], it's different. You must find 'Key' picture for 'Note' word, to make 'KeyNote'. Or 'Book' picture for 'NoteBook'. This kind of twisted puzzle style is another brilliant move, and I adore it. But if you're not Native English user, you can't solve them. How can some foreigner know every words including 'Note'? That's too difficult, or almost impossible. Even Cutscene doesn't have English subtitle, so can't understand the story easily.

If you're English Native user & like Hidden Object game, this could be another good try. But if you're not, well, just purchase old [Tex Murphy] series from gog.com
