Anomaly Hunter is a lighthearted hidden object puzzle game which sees you travelling through time to locate and investigate anomalies that are causing chaos in the time continuum.
In Anomaly Hunter you take on the role of a detective who travels through time with his sarcastic AI partner and investigates anomalies that are disrupting the flow of time. It essentially plays out like an interactive Where’s Waldo (or Where’s Wally depending on where you live) book, giving you a large and highly detailed scene that you can explore and investigate.
In each scene of Anomaly Hunter you are given a set of five anomalies to investigate (and a bunch of optionional items to spot) and they lead you on a trail that helps you identify what’s causing them all. You need to explore the scenes, find the objects, and place them back in their rightful place. Some objects may not be in the current time, but you can rewind to an earlier version of the scene to find it.
The current build of Anomaly Hunter features one large level that takes around 20 minutes to play through. It’s great fun exploring the environment and it’s packed full of nice little details, easter-eggs and fun little gags. Being able to travel between the past and present versions of the scene is a great touch and there’s a nice amount of interactivity to the game so it doesn’t just feel like you’re staring at a page in a Where’s Waldo book. It’s shaping up to be an excellent hidden object puzzle adventure well worth finding.
