About the game:

In The Secret Society – Hidden Mystery you join the Order of Seekers, a secret society of people with a unique ability to move inside magic worlds. You travel through photographs in search for clues to unravel the mystery behind the disappearance of your missing uncle, and to prevent the dangers threatening the entire Secret Society. You will look for myriad of clues in photographs you move within. These clues, if gathered together with others, will expand even further the world you’re traveling and serve to help you unravel the mysteries you’re tasked with. Some of these puzzles are harder than others, but on the whole, you will find The Secret Society – Hidden Mystery polished and engaging.

The game offers a completely engaging and wholly entertaining experience. Exploring the pictures is done via a map, which shows all of the pictures you can visit. You’ll unlock additional pictures as you progress. When you enter a picture you’re given a list of items – sometimes listed in text form, other times as silhouettes, sometimes one, sometimes a piece that’s broken into a multiple – and you’ll need to find them before time runs out. You will be revisiting the same pictures, but as you progress the challenges will get more diabolical as you will have to find more and more items in a very short allotted time. In addition you will play puzzle games such as memory, pipes or a maze to find additional pieces.

There’s a whole range of different helpful items and powerups, which includes everything from hints that point out objects you can’t find to flashlights that light up the night time levels. You’ll collect these as you complete rooms, but they can also be purchased with the game’s premium currency. Take advantage of a compass that will locate the item, dynamite that will clear it from your list, pocket watch that will add time if you cannot complete a level within allowed minutes. Other power ups include ancient talismans, tools, food and drinks that you can purchase from within the game with coins you collect while playing the scenes or via in-app purchases. Collect all of the awards, to level up quicker; share your progress with friends and get special bonuses.

Meet interesting characters, fulfill engaging missions, discover new magic worlds and learn the secrets of the Order of Seekers. The fantastic blend of hidden object tasks and puzzles in The Secret Society – Hidden Mystery will entertain the avid adventure, hidden object and puzzle gamers.

The Secret Society Review

The Secret Society Review

Jun 7, 2013

G5 pounds out yet another hidden mystery game, this one cloaked as a shadowy thriller. Welcome to The Secret Society.

This first person adventure starts with a somewhat cryptic message from my Uncle Richard’s personal secretary, Christy, telling me he has disappeared, and asking me to come the mansion as soon as possible to retrieve a note left for me.

The tutorial reveals I have this special power, like my uncle, to move inside of magic pictures. While learning the ins and outs of discovery, I do learn from Uncle Richard’s mysterious letter that I have control of the mansion… and his seat on the shadowy Order of Seekers.

The gameplay itself is a mix of hidden objects, puzzles and the completion of tasks. In keeping to the backstory, I secret1get to visit parts of the house to find objects, or to complete tasks gently given to me by uncle’s butler. The finding sessions are timed, and the different parts are scenes that had individual rankings; going through them several times increases the mastery rank and increases the action points and game money needed to unlock further levels. There is also a system of energy that has to be accounted for.

The time factor makes the game interesting. With this system, speed is ultra-important, and too many bad guesses hurt.To help counter the the dwindling time, I did have access to a limited number of guesses that helped ferret out hard-to-find items. It’s a great idea, as it (along with the occasional silhouette searches) distracts from the somewhat repetitive use of the objects.

Looks-wise, it is just about as fantastic of a game that one can expect from a G5 effort; the artwork is superb, and it has beautiful animations. The intricate nature of the scenery does help to enhance the gameplay a great deal.

Only G5 can continually reinvent a genre it practically created on Android, and in this game, it does it relatively well.
