Quick verdict

Pictureka Museum Mayhem first made history as a board game. It’s different from most hidden object games because of its use of limited color (red and blue) and item descriptions.

What’s it about?

Every level in Pictureka Museum Mayhem is a busy screen that looks like it game from the pages of a Dr. Suess book. Most of the objects that you are to find wouldn’t actually be found in a museum, unless we’re talking about that curiosity museum with the shrunken heads.Submit your OWN Footprint Rating and leave comments for this game!

Visually, Pictureka is easier to look out than the next HOG because it’s done up completely in tints of red and blue (this is important when staring at a computer screen for hours on end!). The clues you use to find the accessories are also a lot more creative than you may be used to.

A broad label such as “sharp objects”, for example, will cause you to hunt for a variety of things that could qualify.

The great thing about this HOG is that if you are having trouble finding something, you can swap the card it’s listed on for another one rather than spend more time searching in vain. You must collect enough dog treats (as indicated by the card difficulties) within the time limit to move on to the next level.

Pros and cons

+ A nice change from a traditional, photo-based HOG.

+ Clever, homonym-based clues, like letters that can refer to the alphabet, or pieces of mail.

+ You receive a hilarious “false fact” when completing levels.

+ Score multipliers for doing cards of a same color group.

– Amazingly, the background in which you are searching in never changes, just the hints.

– Some things that you’ll click on that relate to a particular category aren’t considered valid by the game.

The verdict

If you’re looking for a different style of a hidden object game, try Pictureka Museum Mayhem. If you’re looking for a lot of variety between the levels, however, you might want to skip it.
