Detective Quest: The Crystal Slipper HD: A Hidden Object Adventure is a fun and engaging puzzle game for the iPad. In this world, you play the role of a detective tasked with finding a mystery woman who the prince has fallen in love with after just one evening of dancing. At the end of their dance, the woman disappeared, leaving only a single slipper behind. Desperate to find her again, the prince hires you to find her and bring her back to him.
The mechanics of this game will probably be familiar to anyone who has ever played a hidden object puzzle game before. You can move from one area to another by touching that area on the screen, and as you progress through the game, you'll accumulate objects that you'll need later on. There are multiple play modes, which adjust how much help the game gives you in terms of hints and clues. These hints are especially helpful in learning the ins and outs of the game if you've never played anything like this before. But if you're an experienced veteran, you may like to see how you can do totally on your own.
The app's interface is intuitive and straightforward to learn and the game is engaging. It includes many different types of mini-games within the larger story, and completing these quests makes it possible for you to move forward in the story. There's not much unique about this game, but the story is interesting, and the features of the app are well executed.
