Treasure Seekers 3: Follow the Ghosts – Collector's Edition HD
will have you searching across the globe to find objects in order to solve mysteries surrounding the baffling rash of ghost appearances. To do so, you’ll need to use your wits to gain entrance into locked areas by finding keys and other useful items, and you’ll encounter environmental puzzles such as riddles or elaborate puzzles blocking your progress. You’ll enter Hidden Object scenes in order to find that one key object that will progress you in your mission. While in the Hidden Object scenes, if you see an item listed in yellow, it means you need to do something additional to acquire the object, such as move two items together to form a new object or unearth an object hidden in a box.
Sometimes you will pick up an object in the environment and a wheel will appear with a number of silhouetted objects encircling it. This indicates that you have started the process of putting together a key object, one that is necessary to complete your mission. When you see an object that matches the silhouette, place it into the circle and the silhouette fills in. Once you have found all of the objects, they combine to form your much needed key object.
There will be a task list at the bottom of the screen to help you on your way, if you are playing in Casual Mode. The tasks are typically pretty specific and will help you a lot, but again, if you get stuck you always have the Strategy Guide. Additionally, you will also have access to Bonus Content like Wallpapers and Concept Art.
Once you have completed the game, if you are playing the Collector's Edition, you will then head back to England for a bonus mission as Totenkraft as he seeks to create another Philosopher's Stone. The gameplay is very similar, except that if you try to pick up an object in the environment and you haven't yet triggered the key object that the item will be used for, you can't pick it up. I thought this was a bit odd since it wasn't like that for the rest of the game, but it wasn't a big deal.
Overall, Treasure Seekers 3: Follow the Ghosts – Collector's Edition HD is an entertaining Adventure game with some Hidden Object elements to it. I’d recommend it more for those who are fans of Adventure games though, because it has many more Adventure elements than Hidden Object.
