Fishdom H2O: Hidden Odyssey is the latest in the Fishdom series of games put out by Playrix. While this company makes some really cute and fun games, this one seemed to get repetitive after awhile. I was seeing the same puzzles, but looking for different items. The idea of a marine biology student having to build themed aquariums to get a job with some haughty aqua institute was kind of out there.

Since there are many games in the series, I might not be giving the devs proper credit, and maybe I should check out their backlog of other games. While this was a pure hidden object game, it was no mystery, which was refreshing. No swarming spiders or undead things to creep you out. Searching for treasures to sell from sunken ships, and other classic buildings was pretty fun, and our protagonist even has help from her oceanograher grandfather to keep her spirits up.

The game is really colourful, and has some upbeat calypso music in the background that never gets too loud, so it is easy to focus on the puzzles. The little seahorses we capture to give us hints if we need them are really cute, but after doing some of the same pictures over again a few times, it was easy to find the little guys. Needed more of a challenge there, but I did play in casual mode, since it was simply a test. I guess its time to check out some other Fishdom games to see where this all started.
