If you enjoy hidden item games, The Secret Society is a great example of one done well. The locales are beautiful – even on my older Moto X and the music is very well done. The one thing that you may hold against the game is that much like the rest if the mobile market these days, it relies on an impatient userbase that wants instant satisfaction and to play as long as they want to. Unfortunately, if you are inpatient like me, you are liable to end up purchasing some extras as the mystery deepens.
While the story is pretty generic and the aptly named butler, Alfred, continues (very comically in my view) have coins that are important to him that he loses, it can be forgiven. After all, you are here for those darn items that have something to do with a mystery of missing uncle and a lot to do with being hard as heck to find. Nevertheless, the zoom functionality and the add-ons that you pick up throughout playing, make the game fun for those who are fans of the hidden item genre.
That being said, if you are like me and not really fans of the genre, there really isn’t much here for you. The high production quality doesn’t do anything to make the hidden items any less hidden – and I just don’t have the patience. Still, my lack of patience shouldn’t anything to do with the game’s final review. That being said, the corny story could have been more engaging and the butler could have lost more than just coins.
