Serpent of Isis Review

A well constructed plot line is among the best features of The Serpent of Isis. Many hidden objects games do not seamlessly integrate the plot into object hunting, but this game is an exception.

Objects Found Play Into the Plot

After receiving an anonymous letter, you set out in search of the mysterious Serpent of Isis. Progression into the game is regulated by the objects you find that move you closer to uncovering this Serpent. Attention to small plot details is abundant, like finding the Holy Grail on a train after seeing a newspaper announcing its discovery in a previous location.

The graphics themselves expertly hide objects, fun for those seeking a challenge. Moving backgrounds in train windows and flickering neon lights help to add some realism to the game.

Some Interesting Extra Puzzles

While approximately 85% of the game is spent looking for objects, there are some external challenges such as picture puzzles and simple code breaking that may be undesirable to those who only want to locate hidden objects. That said, most will find these challenges simple and rewarding in the context of the story line. Intricate features, including objects hidden within other objects, are explained as soon as they are introduced in the game, eliminating any possible confusion.

Conclusion - An Extremely Well Done Hidden Object Adventure

The Serpent of Isis is a well-developed game that will be an exciting challenge to almost all players.
