About Hidden Object Games

You will need a keen eye and some serious focus in order to be successful in our hidden object games playlist. Before we go more in-depth into these games though, let’s go over what exactly a hidden object game is.

What are hidden object games?

Hidden object games have a pretty straightforward concept to them – there are hidden objects that are scattered throughout the map that you must find. This can really be anything, from finding a hidden batch of sushi scattered across a house, to finding someone hidden on a dance floor who shouldn’t be there, to finding a candy that is somewhere on the map. 

While this genre may be a basic concept, all of these games are actually really fun and entertaining. For example, you won’t believe just how badly you want to find a random piece of sushi scattered on a map until you give Cat in Japan a try. 

Are hidden object games good for your brain?

Despite the old adage that video games will “rot your brain,” there are actually studies that have shown that video games can improve cognition when played in moderation. This is especially true for logic games such as hidden object games, which require players to use their brains in order to problem solve.
