Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings v1.1 for iOS Review [TheGamerWithKids.com]

Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings is a hidden objects game from G5 Entertainment. I’ve looked at a few hidden objects type games before but this one is by far the most engaging of the ones I’ve seen. Where as most hidden object styles games are mainly just I-Spy type games, Enchanted Paintings has an entire story line centered around it as well as puzzle elements that give you a reason to stick around. In fact, the puzzling elements are just as abundant here as the hidden object elements are in the game. In the game, you are a mother looking for her lost child which has been magically trapped within a painting. You must travel into 5 enchanted paintings to unlock the mystery of what happened to your child and how rescue him from his painted prison.

To start things off, the whole presentation of Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings is amazing. Awesome graphics, rich audio experience, voice acting, and a nice variety of different gamplay elements combine to form an overall fun and challenging package. Each of the levels are vastly different from each other and each sublevel requires you to travel back and forth from each other in order to solve each of the puzzles.

Gameplay in Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings is a combination of several different types. There is the standard hidden objects game where you try looking for specific objects on the screen in order to complete the mini game.  As with some other games, certain objects you find are kept in your inventory and you use those to solve specific puzzles on certain levels, for instance finding a ladder and using it to climb up to a second floor room. There are tons of these type of puzzles and you’ll need to jump back and forth between different areas in order to find the objects you need to complete an area. Overall, a challenging game that will appeal both to casual gamers and hardcore alike.

Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings was one of those games I just couldn’t put down. I usually grow bored of hidden object games after a short while because they usually end up just being the same game over and over again. Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings is different thanks in part to it’s engaging story line and challenging puzzle elements. This free version offers 5 locations to play in, each with several sub levels. Unlike most free games, this one actually completes an entire story line with additional ones being in-app purchases. If there was one complaint about the game, it would be that the app itself is quite hefty, coming in at well over a 1gb download so you better make sure you can spare the space to download it.

Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings is available now in the App Store for free. It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.Requires iOS 3.0 or later.
