Hidden FolksOfficial Waldo Score 8.7/10

8.7out of 10
Official Waldo Review

Hidden Folks, a game that reminds me of Where's Waldo is a refreshing new taste to this genre. The artwork is amazing, but what really makes this game is the sound effects. All of the sound effects in the game are mouth-made sounds which made the game not only fun, but sort of hilarious at the same time. It made me want to click on everything just to hear the sound effects that it would make. Each world is vast and fun to explore and the game is relaxing, yet challenging. Never did I feel like the game was too hard or boring, but at the same time was far from being easy. Give this game a download today.

User Interface Design (UI)
Super simplistic, goes well with the game.
User Experience Design (UX)
Easy to navigate and easy to use
Game Design
The illustrations are all perfect. Cute and simple and they all go together. For a black and white, using only outlines, this game is a masterpiece inside and out.
Learning Curve
Game required no tutorials or instructions to play.
Difficulty Progression
Difficulty progression was smooth yet challenging.
Playtime Longevity
It is a game that you will want to play for a week, but nothing more.
Sound Design
This is what sets the game above others. There is no music to this game, which is completely fine, because the sound effects are hilarious. Completely well done and unique.
Fun
Fun enough to make you play for hours even when you have other responsibilities or things you should be doing.
Concept Originality
Uses a concept that has been seen or used before but adds a very unique twist to that concept that makes it original on its own.
Post Production
Post production contains a well written description, screenshots, video and icon design.
Hidden Folks
Cute. Funny. But where?!
