    Downtown Secrets (HOG w/light interaction)

    Options include Custom Cursor, Music, Sound effects, Windowed or Full-screen (no wide-screen option) and Show Tooltips.

    Exiting a scene will cause you to lose your level progress, so choose your exit point(s) wisely!

    The story is interesting, beginning with a SKIPPABLE cut-scene that you can also click through at your own pace.

    HINTS are refillable, and there is no mis-click penalty. The hint
    themselves are given as pictures - in other words, an approximate area
    to look. They work quite well, actually.

    MINI-GAMES are pertinent to the story and are also SKIPPABLE. "Mini"
    is a good description. There is some very light interaction during the
    hidden object scenes, and the mini-games are not difficult... at least
    not yet

    There are ZOOM-in areas of hidden object scenes, which adds to the
    difficulty, as you never know which part you need to look in to find
    the items. The hidden objects list does not have its own toolbar at
    the top or bottom of the screen. Instead you have a PDA-kind of device
    that shows up to six items-to-find at a time. The PDA also serves as
    your task list.

    There are some beautiful graphics in this game. The hidden objects are
    appropriately placed, yet not easy to find, and that artwork is pretty
    nice. The second cut-scene of the game, though... It shows a man
    going up in a glass elevator at night, and it is just beautifully done!
    The reflections, the moon shining on the clouds, the differing
    perspective as you rise through the city... Just lovely.

    The HOG scenes are a bit darker than I'd like. This game would've
    really benefited from a brightness control option, but it's not so dark
    you can't find anything.

    I have finished 3 levels in 45 minutes, but I can't give you an idea of
    the length of this game, as I don't know how many levels there are.
    There's not a lot of in-your-face story in this game, and yet I find
    the it intriguing and would like to see what happens next. This is a
    straight-HOG, so be sure to demo the game before purchasing!
