Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this game might be a little too spooky for preschoolers but is a great choice for older kids who love finding objects hidden in pictures. But you will have to tell kids the story of how people died and it's a little weird to go looking for dead people's stuff.

What's it about?

In Titanic: Hidden Expedition, players navigate through the sinking Titanic to find hidden objects in each room. Along with the hidden objects, gems are scattered everywhere for collecting too. If stuck, you can tap on the hint and it'll make the hidden object sparkle. You can use as many hints as you'd like, but it deducts from your time. As players roam the ship, they'll learn fun facts about the Titanic. Did you know that it cost $75 million to build the Titanic?

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

Kids are treasure hunters exploring the wreckage of the world's most famous sunken ship in this fun object-finding game. Hundreds of ornate Victorian objects ranging from hairbrushes to bicycle pumps are scattered across 17 realistic underwater ship locations. Some objects are hiding in plain sight; others are cleverly camouflaged. When kids tap an object it floats to the top. If kids can't find all the objects in a room in 25 minutes, they can try again with a different set.
