Enigma Express is a beautiful hidden object game featured with captivating hidden hunt. As a detective from the Blue Toad Agency, you will take on all cases of a curious and menacing nature and tackle down crimes by your clue-searching skills.
Your adventure in Enigma Express begins when you accept an unusual bank robbery case where the culprit tiptoed into the bank vault only to take some worthless trinkets like a gold whisk and a seed that belonged to Five Fingers, a criminal mastermind renowned for heists. But as the investigation goes deeper, you find bribery and murder that looks accidents entangled in the case. What are the culprit cooking up and what is his next move? That’s your job to find out and you have to gather and follow clues.
From the train station to the robbed bank vault and beyond, you will rush against time to find hidden objects as many as possible to earn high score and the Clue Pieces (equivalent to Stars). The standard mode in Enigma Express adopts the laundry list style showing images of items. The tricky part and also the fun part is that objects on the scene usually are not what they look like in the list. Rather they may be half-revealed, upside down, tilted, enlarged or the other way around.
In addition, Enigma Express prepares other play modes adding certain versatility to the hidden hunt. Instead of having four items shown in the list, you will in the Wheel-mode only see one object at a time and need to find it to turn the wheel getting the next. And another new mode plays similar to the Standard but places objects on four colors which once found will give you a bonus of extra score, multiplier, big score or time.
As a detective, you may use helps from a side-kick at times. You have one in Enigma Express, a gentleman dog called Watson with a pipe in the mouth. When stuck, you can let Watson show you one item. It’s free but with a cool-down.
To speak of the Clue Pieces, you earn them by completing hidden scenes and extend them to unlock new locations. So replay is a must and it is fun, too. Replaying a scene is easier only in that you have already been familiar with the items on it. Their position and size will be all changed to make the hunt a bit more challenging actually. That’s probably why it gives you even more time every time you play to get the next Clue Piece.
Besides Clue Pieces, you will need other items to access certain scenes. These items can be gathered from the hidden scenes (another cause of replay) or from friends’ help. After unlocking a new scene, you also need to wait for the rail tracks to be built extending to it. That revolves some waiting time unless you are willing to spend gold coins, the premium, to finish it instantly. That’s a feature related to its title but seems far-fetched. The major purpose of it, though implicit, actually couldn’t more obvious. But it is free-to-play, anyway.
Enigma Express is available to download on the App Store now. And it is a title HOG fans won’t want to miss.
