The Spirit of Revenge - Unrecognised Master is a Hidden Object Adventure game set in a village under the control of a malevolent spirit. This review is based on the Collector's Edition of this game developed by Vendel Games.
As usual with Collector's Edition, this title comes with a number of bonus items to add extra appeal to the game player.  These items are made up of Concept Art, Wallpaper, Music, Video Clips, Mini Games, Strategy Guide and a bonus chapter.  In some cases, such as Concept Art, Wallpaper, Music and Strategy Guide, you are granted immediate access while with other extra items you will need to complete the main game.
When packing your holiday case, don't forget your Hidden Object skills.
The title of this next game, Our Beautiful Earth, does not give a clue as to the genre of this particular offering.  In fact Our Beautiful Earth belongs to the Hidden Object style of game play.  Developed by BD Studio Games, Our Beautiful Earth takes you on a trip to 30 different locations from around the world as you locate various objects and complete mini games in order to continue your travels. Allowing different players to take part in this game, you can create named profiles.
Keeping active minds fully, and positively, occupied can be a difficult task at the best of time. The closure of schools due to the pandemic will not help matters.
Offering to help provide parents with the appropriate tools designed to encourage learning within the home environment are various companies including Geomagworld.  For those not too familiar with Geomagworld, this is a leading organisation in the toy industry which has been developing toys that are meant to stimulate creativity and learning in the young members of society.  Recently I have been given the opportunity to check out one of the Geomagworld products.

Available at the cut-price of $2.99 from Big Fish Games, Witches Curse in the Princess Isabella series is a Hidden Object Adventure game.  While a little long in the tooth, this Gogii developed game makes a good choice for somebody taking their first steps into Hidden Object game play.  It does this by not only integrating its Strategy Guide into the story line but also allows the player to access its content that is relevant to the location being currently visited.
Rather than just looking at paintings, you can step inside them to explore what is happening.

In this particular case, the investigation involves a return to Blake's Mountain in responses to a worrying message from Hank Hunter who felt he was being followed by an unknown entity. As a League of Light detective, you are sent to investigate what will become know as the case of the Gatherer.
Developed by Mariaglorum, League of Light: The Gatherer is a Hidden Object Adventure game.  This review is based on the Collector's Edition of the title that comes with a number of extra items.  In most cases these items, such as Music, Wallpaper and Concept Art, can be access immediately.  However there is a Bonus Chapter which remains locked until the main game has been completed.
Following The Tree of Life, The Living Mountain continues the Amaranthine Voyage saga as it relates the further adventures of Professor Burns.
I have been looking at the Collector's Edition of this Eipix Entertainment Amaranthine Voyage: The Living Mountain which comes with a number of bonus items.  While, in some cases, bonus items can be accessed immediately, other will require progress to have been made in the main game and there are some which only become available when everything else has been completed.
Looking for a holiday with a difference, then you might like to consider a visit to an Adventure Park.
Acting as a kind of digital travel agency, Casual Arts offers game players the choice of various Vacation Adventures.  In this case you are invited to join a Park Ranger as you visit the different locations that make up the gaming environment of this Hidden Object game. Profiles can be created so that different players can take their adventurous break when they fancy.  The profile will record their progress and score of the designated player.
Looking for new locations in which to arrange hidden objects, Casual Arts place you on board an ocean liner visiting various locations.
Developed by Casual Arts, Vacation Adventure Cruise Director is a Hidden Object game.  As can be surmised from its title, this game involves taking a holiday on board a cruise liner.  All your activities will be organised by the cruise director and all you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy yourself.  Well not exactly as you will be challenged to complete a variety of tasks aboard the liner and at the different ports of call established during the cruise.
Do you trust a ghostly figure when you are searching for a missing friend pulled back in time or rely on your own instincts.
As is my usual practice, this review is based on the Collector's Edition of the title which comes with a number of bonus items.  In some cases, such as wallpaper, music and concept art, you are granted immediate access to the bonus items.  However to make use of collectibles, achievements, archives and screen saver items, you will need to make progress in the main game.
Can you act as the bridge and the groom to ensure they get to the wedding chapel?
Dark Romance - The Curse of Bluebeard is a Hidden Object Adventure game.  However the game's developer, Domini Games, has opted not to base their game on the more obvious Bluebeard character but on one that is less well-known.  Rather than the pirate known as Bluebeard, this game has Count Bluebeard, a man whose servants have had their tongues cut out, as its central character.
When an old friend offers to help you find work, you should look before you leap.
Developed by BLAM! Games, Dangerous Games : Prisoners of Destiny is a Hidden Object Adventure game that involves a magical world filled with puzzles, unusual situations and an occasional weird creature.  I have been looking at the Collector's Edition of this title which comes with a number of bonus items.  Some of these items, such as wallpaper, concept art and music, can be accessed immediately while other need you to complete or made sufficient progress in the main game.
Fancy a trip to Australia? This next offering from Lazy Turtle Games might seem like a possible inducement to make the trip but, somehow, I seriously doubt it. Yes you do get some interesting snippets regarding popular locations in the land of "down under" but, unless you have an overwhelming desire to cuddle a koala or play fisticuffs with a kangaroo, you might think "so what!"
The game, entitled Travel to Australia, belongs to the Hidden Object genre with its various scenes spread through the antipodeans continent that, I'm reliable informed, were not featured in Neighbours.  Profiles can be set up to record the progress of individual players.  Adjustments can be made to the volume level for background music and sound effects.  There are options to select full screen viewing and use a custom cursor.
Providing Match-3 action, this next game involves breaking a curse that is affecting the world of magic.
E-funsoft's latest excursion into the world of Match-3 game play involves the Academy of Magic.  Subtitled "The Great Dark Wizard's Curse", this game deals with the adventures of Dennis Griffin.  However long before Dennis enters the picture, many years ago the hidden world of magic lived in fear of the human world.  Fortunately some witches and wizards got together and set up a pact with the human world so that peaceful harmony was established.
The last time I took a Bridge to Another World, I ended up in the Land of Oz keeping Dorothy company. Now for my second excursion, over this virtual structure, to yet another literary environment, the destination is Shadowland with Alice as my companion. To avoid any confusion, and with my companion's name giving a possible clue, I was bound for a visit to Wonderland, the magical world created by Charles Dodgson who is better known as Lewis Carroll.
Profiles can be created to record the progress of individual players.  There are also options to make adjustments to certain elements of the gaming environment.  Levels can be set for music, sound effects and voice dialogue.  You can also opt for full and widescreen viewing plus a special mouse cursor.  When playing the game there are four levels of difficulty namely Casual, Advanced, Expert and Custom.
Hopefully when visiting this establishment, you will arrive as an investigator rather than as a patient or you might never leave.
Classified as belonging to the Hidden Object genre, Abandoned : Chestnut Lodge Asylum forms part of the BlackLime series of game titles.  Rated at being suitable for those aged 12 and older, the game has been developed by Lazy Turtle Games. Prior to entering this world built around an asylum from where patients tended to disappear and neither the nursing staff nor the police could find any trace of them, you can create profiles for different players and adjust the gaming environment.
