Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Little Things is a puzzle game in the same vein as the classic Where's Waldo? games. Players must find a group of items amidst a much larger image that's often filled with things that look similar. What makes it unique is all of the items are put together to form larger shapes, such as a dog or scissors. There's also a well-integrated hint system to help when you just can't find an item, though younger player might not have the attention span required to enjoy the game's complexity.
Is it any good?
While there's nothing new about hidden object games, Little Things brings a sense of freshness to the genre by tucking those objects inside clever collages. The hundreds of tiny objects on screen will force you to slow down and be methodical in your search, though you're rewarded for speed with puzzle pieces that unlock new collages. It's a fun combination of incentives. What's best about the game, though, is it is infinitely replayable. There are a limited number of collages, but the search list is randomly generated and each collage is made up of so many items that you may never run out of puzzles.
