Time Geek developed by Ivanovich Games is a classic seek and find game based on a retro theme. The aliens have moved everything from here and there in space time and your friends Time Geeks must travel in time and put everything in place in order to avoid total collapse.
Gameplay: Time Geek offers over 100 unique seek and find challenges with seven minigames and make your own island feature. The things you have to find in each level varies; it can be an animal, a person or an object. Each level has a pre-defined time and you have to find the object/s before the times runs up. Finishing before time will get you stars with a maximum of three stars in each round. Some of the items that you’ll be asked to find will feature quite prominently in the locale that you’re searching for them in, but most are cleverly hidden, camouflaged, or just small enough to be tough to spot. As you scroll around each environment on the touch screen, you’ll inevitably spot countless objects, but the only one you’re interested in is the one shown on the top left screen with the image. The environments in which you search for items are well drawn, but look a little compressed.
You will be required to complete several different minigames between the hidden-object levels round. The quality of these minigames varies, but they’re never so long or so difficult that they get in the way of object-finding action. The general finding of items is quite challenging and objects like plane, bees and clouds will come in your way will trying to seek.
