Published by G5 Entertainment, Treasure Seekers 4: The Time Has Come is the fourth installment in the Treasure Seekers series of games.
From the sweeping score at the title screen to the tap-and-hunt fun of each stage, Treasure Seekers 4 is lots of fun and builds upon the success of its predecessors.
This time around, Nelly has been kidnapped by Totenkraft, and it’s up to Tom to track them down using fun devices like the X-Glass or the Ring of Time. There’s also a suggestion that we’ll learn some more about Totenkraft himself, and that he may not be as evil as we’ve been taught to believe.
There are 4 chapters and 45 levels to explore, and each is certainly more challenging than the last. You don’t know frustration until you’re trying to find a single nut or a pair of dice in a jumble of items. But it’s the good kind of frustration, the kind that makes you addicted to the challenge in the gameplay.
There are two game modes to try in Treasure Seekers 4: Casual Mode or Advanced Mode, which offers additional depth of gameplay for the seasoned player.
This tap-based exploring/adventure game is tons of fun, and the screen can easily be expanded with two fingers to get up close and personal with the items in front of you.
You’ll need an eagle eye to spot some of the items you’ll need to progress through each stage of the game (particularly the ones around the edges of the screen), but the controls in Treasure Seekers 4 are sensitive enough that you’ll rarely have to re-tap the screen when you try to select an object. All in all, this sequel is tons of fun and should not be missed by anyone who loves hidden item style games.
Treasure Seekers 4: The Time Has Come is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.0 or later. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this iPhone Game Review.
