World of Secrets offers hidden-object searches that are mostly on-message with the game's Victorian-era setting and explorer theme. For example, you might search an arctic scene for fur-lined boots, skis, and binoculars -- not just random junk. There's some effort to liven up the scenes with random events, such as storms and fog, which add extra layers of challenge (unless players buy their way out). Quests and leveling give the game focus and a clear sense of progress. Players are required to play the same scenes over and over again, however, which becomes repetitive after a while in spite of the game's efforts to shake things up with varied item lists and locations.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
