Different Ways of Finding
Just Find It is a game whose title tells you just what you are letting yourself in for with its gaming activity. Using a variety of modes you will be asked to find appropriate items within different situations and various locations. Developed by Tiny Little Lion, this puzzle Hidden Object game comes with a Collector's Edition designation. However unlike most other C.E. branded titles, Just Find It limits its bonus items to just Soundtracks and Wallpaper features.
Just Find It divides its Hidden Object content into four different types of game play action. These modes are entitled Difference, Swap, Match and Detail with each one requiring a different type of action in order to proceed. Depending upon your choice of action you could be asked to look for differences in images, swap elements, find matches and search for details. You can either view a choice of all the four formats or target a specific one for your game playing activity.
In my case I opted to start with Difference mode. This particular one offered the largest choice of available location with 50 from which to make a selection. Included in the choices are a Fish Market, Zoo Map, Pickled Cucumber and American Dolls which gives some idea as to range of locations on offer.
Usually when tackling a Spot the Difference type puzzle, you expect to be shown a pair of similar scenes but Just Find It can sometimes offer three or even more scenes from which you need to spot 14 differences. These differences could be found in any of the displayed scenes. In some instances you may be asked to find five items of a specific type such as a button, pumpkin, snail or corgi dog.
Moving from Difference, Swap mode will give you a choice of 12 locations. This time you get to select scenes designated as Statues in London or German villages amongst others. Rather than limiting the swap process to a single scene, you could find yourself needing to move various pieces between two different scenes in order to complete the puzzle. No limit is imposed on the number of required swaps and progress will be indicated by a percentage score.
Match mode also features a choice of 12 locations which are based on topics such as sliced bread, socks and chocolate featured among them. In each location you will need to find 24 pairs of items. Some of the required items may well be concealed underneath other items which will need to be moved aside.
The 4th mode, entitled Detail, is made up of 16 locations. Included amongst these scenes are those identified as mugs, doughnuts, stamps and vegan cuisine. Each location is made up a main scene plus 12 small images representing an area from the main scene. You need to find the area representing the smaller images.
When playing the various Difference and Swap location, you will have access to tools made up of Settings, Home, Instructions and Hint. When playing the Match and Detail locations then this list of tools will be added to with a Zoom tool to help aid any necessary searches.
I feel this game is best suited to short playing sessions as you set about completing one of the locations for a particular mode. I downloaded my copy of the game from Gamehouse.com where it is priced at $19.99. It is also available from Big Fish Games priced at £15.86. The game requires a 2.0 GHz processor with 4096MB of RAM and 1.01GB of hard disk space running Windows 7 and later.
