I’m finding a new kind of respect for HdO games as they take on most of our favourite classic books and bring them to life as hidden object mystery games. Around the World in Eighty Days: The Challenge is by far the most fun I have had with one of these games, even though, like many of these game, the logic puzzle aspect can be a bit frustrating, because if you miss one little thing, the puzzle is reset, and you have to start over. Although Around the World in Eighty Days: The Challenge is not nearly as much fun as the latest film version of this classic tale, it remains true to the book. The last film version to stay as close to the story as this was the Around the World in 80 Days (Miniseries) starring Pierce Brosnan as Phineas Fogg. If you like casual games with a classic steampunk adventure twist, then Around the World in Eighty Days: The Challenge will more than satisfy, and with it being an HdO game, if you have ever played one of these before, you will pretty much know the formula that is used to play. The graphics are bright, the object easy to find with subtle clues, and the background noise authentic to the setting of the book. If you are a fan of Jules Verne’s work, then you must give Around the World in Eighty Days: The Challenge a try.

It’s time for another classic steampunk adventure with Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo. This is an HdO brand game, a hidden object mystery that is made by a company that is famous for taking classic stories and turning them into fun games. The graphics are right on par with the book, and the characters are popping right out of the pages. It seems like we are watching the movie again as we help Professor Pierre Aronnax, his assistant Conseil, and the harpoonist Ned Land escape from the brilliant, but fanatical, idealist, Captain Nemo.
