Hidden Expedition Titanic hidden object / puzzle game

Hidden Expedition Titanic is a hidden object game where you need to find all the items that are listed, within a set time limit of 5 minutes. The online game is set in a world beneath the sea, that lets you explore underwater ruins to recover valuable artifacts for a museum. Hidden objects include diving suits, baseballs, starfish, bottles and many others. Each time you replay a level, you are given a new set of items to find. However, all the objects are seen in the same place each time. Therefore, over time you will get to know exactly where they are found for each level. This makes Hidden Expedition Titanic highly recommended for children or beginners to this genre of game.

Game design plan from a developers point of view

The example shown below of a game design plan, will be used for discussion purposes within our Adobe Flash tutorials for gaming, that we will be starting in the near future.

Note: This is not the design plan the developers of Hidden Expedition Titanic used when making this online hidden object game. It's merely a reverse-engineer of a game design plan based on my experiences as a player.


Title:



Hidden Expedition Titanic (the first in a series)



Developers of Hidden Expedition Everest:



One sentence description:



Hidden object game where you need to find numerous items (8 each level) within a set time limit, so you can advance to the next stage.



Scenario / World:



The scenario for this hidden object game is under the sea, within the famous sunken ship Titanic.



Mode:


Single Player

Objectives:


Find hidden objects within a set time limit to advance through each level.

Characters:



No characters as such, just hidden objects and items.



Audio / visual aesthetics:



Visually the graphics are fantastic, almost as though they are traced from real photographs. There are also many animated graphics throughout the game. For example, little bubbles of air floating up through the water, or fish swimming around.

The audio / music sounds mysterious and is theatre in style.




Genre:


puzzle / hidden object

Possible Target Audience:



Both children and adults who enjoy a good puzzle game. Especially beginners to hidden object games. Those experienced players might find it a tad easy due to the non random placement of the hidden items.



Itemization of game elements:



Game is played with mouse clicks.

The introduction page has 3 options:

  1. Play
  2. Get Full Game (download to PC)
  3. Buy Game (full version)

Press Play and as soon as the game loads you see a welcome screen that tells you the objectives of the level. ie. find as many items on the list shown along the left side of the game.

It also tells the player to take note of the 'hint' button in case they get stuck. Good thing this tip was included as the 'hint' button may have other wise gone unnoticed by the player, as it's quite well hidden amongst the graphics.

Also displayed along the left side of the game are the following elements:

  • Time remaining, which initially starts at 5 minutes. You'll notice when researching hidden object games that most of the time limits start with 5 minutes.
  • The hint button that shows how many hints you have left.
  • The list of objects and items to find, 8 in total for each level.
  • Jewels found. Find 5 jewels to gain an extra hint.

When the time limit runs out before you find all the hidden objects, you're given a new game with a different list of items to find. On the downside, you are made to return to the very first introductory page when this happens. Maybe sending the player back to that specific level would have been a better option from a gamers point of view?

The lack of a pause button is another disadvantage of this game. Personally, I like to be able to pause a game.



Itemization of game rules:



Take note of the list of items that need to be found and click on them in the main picture as you find them.

Find all the objects / items within a 5 minute time limit to progress to the next level.

If you get stuck, click on the hint button and the area that the item can be found will be highlighted.

Find a set number of diamonds and jewels in each level to win an extra hint.
