An exciting new entry in the hidden object category from Mystery Manor developers Game Insight, an extensive storyline, gorgeous hand-painted graphics and its Victorian England meets Wonderland setting makes Mirrors of Albion stand out like a bathroom broom in a back alley.
Alice has been kidnapped from her home, the Red Queen’s thugs roam the streets, the Cheshire Cat is the law and the Mad Hatter a police informant. I’m using the Hatter to help me track down a white rabbit, the latest step in my lengthy investigation.
I pop into a location, hunt for objects hidden in the scene, utilising any of eight different power-ups to help my ageing eyes focus. The handful of locations I’ve unlocked so far are repeated quite frequently, but multiple games types — silhouette, night, words, comparison — keep the hunting and pecking fresh while I gain experience levels and unlock more.
The older I get the more I appreciate beautiful hidden object games, and Mirrors of Albion is one of the most entertaining I’ve played. The older I get the worse my eyes get, however, so I’ll enjoy it while I can.
