Who doesn’t love hidden object games? I have always loved the freedom of a hidden object game due to the fact that you don’t have to follow a linear path. This reminds me very much of old school DOS games like Zork. You are free to wander as you want. Some hidden object games even allow for multiple endings.
Twin Moons is a hidden object thriller that I looked at for the last couple of days. Twin Moons is nice looking game that has a pretty good story line to keep you interested.
You play the role of Jack, who is a researcher at the very creepy Twin Moons Institute. Jack is in a car accident and has no memory with the exception of a few flashbacks. That’s where you begin the journey in Twin Moons. You must collect objects and discover new areas to unlock memories. These memories eventually unlocks the mystery of Twin Moons. Jack has a notebook which keeps all relevant information as you discover it. This makes remembering some key facts much easier.
As Jack continues to explore Twin Moons you begin to discover some of the truths of Twin Moons, like the fact that they are working on a mysterious portal that has world changing implications. Jack’s flashbacks remind him of his fiance, and other fellow researchers at the institute.
Twin Moons Features:
- 31 separate locations to explore
- 20 mini-games to play
- 18 achievements you can earn

I have played a few hidden object games and usually the story line is quickly forgotten. But with Twin Moons I found myself wanted to solve the puzzles so I could find out more of the story. This led to some long stretches of playing time.
You can choose the difficulty level when starting a game and I chose the middle of the road setting. The game is pretty difficult at this setting and I can’t imagine what the hard setting is like. The mini-games are pretty tough at times and I found myself really having to work at them to solve them.
I don’t play games that often but Twin Moons certainly kept my attention and I will continue to play (since I still haven’t completed it).
