Find the Difference Game is a challenging puzzle game in which players must identify 12 differences between two similar images. The game is basic and suitable for young children, but contains cute, attractive graphics.
The program's interface is simple, with two similar images displayed side-by-side. Each puzzle is done in a cartoon style, and we liked that the characters depicted in the images were both white and brown. Each time users locate a difference, they simply click on the spot on either image. A tracker at the top of the screen keeps track of how many differences have been located. If users become stumped they can choose to view the solution to the puzzle (and we have to admit, the puzzles were challenging even to us). The game is suitable for children with rudimentary computer skills; the ability to operate a mouse is really all that's needed. Although there is no Help file, we found that it wasn't really necessary; everything about the game is intuitive, with users simply clicking an arrow button to scroll through the available puzzles. This game is a good choice for kids who need to practice their mouse skills or to work on paying attention to detail.
Find the Difference Game is free to try, but the trial version contains only two puzzles. The game installs desktop icons without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
