Hidden objects and puzzles

If you have played a hidden-object game before, you probably know generally what to expect. There are a few puzzles dropped into the mix, but the game hangs on its hidden-object mechanic. Unlike others of its kind, this game hide things in logical places and usually relies on clever placement rather than oversized or undersized items. The puzzles also make sense more than some other games of the genre, hard enough to make you work, but easy enough that they rarely become frustrating. With fairly strong stories and a good attention to detail, the Samantha Swift games really are quite enjoyable.
