Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Highlights Hidden Pictures is a simple search-and-find game made slightly more difficult by playing on a small screen (but easier if played on an iPad). As players find the hidden objects, they are highlighted in color. Once the puzzle is complete, the entire picture is filled with color. The game comes with 8 puzzles. It is easy (for adults and kids) to purchase additional puzzles from within the app, as well as to navigate off the app and onto the web. Parents might want to consider turning off in-game app purchases by disabling that option on the device through the settings menu.
Is it any good?
HIGHLIGHTS HIDDEN PICTURES is a seek-and-find puzzle app that is challenging for kids of all ages. Kids are shown objects to find within child-friendly pictures. The controls are intuitive to use, allowing kids to zoom in or out as necessary. Plus hints are available showing the specific area to look if you are stumped. The app may be overly commercial for some families and it is easy for kids to hit the button to buy additional puzzles, but the game itself is worth the price.
