I'm quite fond of hidden object type games and have a few loaded up on my BlackBerry. One of which is Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden. I found the game quite addictive, well I find all of them addictive, and found myself staying up late just to complete it. With hidden objects games it is more or less the same concept - tap and investigated usual areas to discover clues and actions.

In Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden, you deep dive into a lost underwater city to rescue your fiancé who has gone missing. You'll soon discover you may be dealing with supernatural forces. As you investigate further you discover many spine-chilling secrets which you must uncover and solve in order to find and rescue your fiancé.

The game is packed with mini-games and puzzles for you to complete. Throughout the game your are provided with hints but with many hidden object games if you use it, you'll have to wait for the hint to recharge before you can use it again. Though I did find, in this game, that it recharges quicker than most. You can pinch and zoom into areas to help make things easier too.

Within the mini-games, there is also the option to play an alternative mini-game in the form of dominos just to mix things up. If successful, the result is the same is completing it the normal way.

Game features:

  • Scary and thrilling story in a unique underwater setting
  • Beautiful, hand-drawn graphics
  • Hollywood-quality animations
  • 40 unique locations with 14 hidden-object scenes
  • Numerous original and inventive minigames
  • Unique option to switch from a hidden-object scene to a minigame
  • Intriguing Art-Deco city design

The graphics in the game are pretty awesome and you can tell it has been put together well. It adds to the whole experience, especially with this game where at time is can get quite thrilling.

This version is known as the Collector's Edition and includes a bonus chapter and lots of extras. The  game also includes 21 achievements for you to accomplish, just to add some motivation to game play. A few of them being - complete a mini-game in less than 60 seconds, finish 3 mini-games without using the skip button and completing the whole game without using any hints.

Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden is quite the enjoyable game and I really can't fault it. Another great thing about the game is that it is free to play. So, you can download the game for free, give it a go and if you enjoy it, you can unlock the full version. And you don't just get a short trial either. You actually get quite a bit of game play before having to purchase the full game. 

If you are looking to purchase the full game, the developer is having a 40% discount so it may want to snap it up soon. The original price of the full game is $3.99 but right now you can get it for $2.99.

Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden is available for the Z10, Q10 and Q5, as well as the PlayBook. If you love hidden object games, give this one a try.

How do the controls work? Is it comparable with Six Guns? (because I hate those controls)

No. You just tap the screen to select or move about the screen by dragging. It's different to Six Guns. Six Guns is a RPG shooter, this is a hidden object game.

And now it is time to engage in that third-most popular of internet activities: citing yet another indictment of our education system while weeping for the future. While a 25% discount -- which is what we have here -- is generally an impressive incentive to buy, it's certainly not 40% off (which would bring the price down to $2.40).

That is such a funny observation! I wonder how many were suckered into an impulse buy by this "40% off deal"!!!

I love all the games from this group of developers. The concept is similar for all their games but the storyline and graphics makes it always enjoyable to play.

I'd like to know how much money some people have spent on this stuff. $3.99 for this game sounds like robbery

It's not. I have bought all the games by this dev. Hours of game play, amazing storyline, and superb graphics. Worth every penny.

Do you know how much time and effort it takes to craft a game with such quality? For this price it's still a bargain. We are used to way too low prices and complain at a price of 3.99... Do you complain at your local fast food restaurant why they don't have Burgers for free?

True. But keep in mind that this guy was promoting outright software theft a couple of days ago. He said there should a website where he could download paid apps for free. In other words he promotes criminal activity.

Given that, it's not such a surprise he doesn't want to pay 4 dollars. I'm sure if he could steal burgers he would do that too.

Great another game that costs me money. Do I look like I. Rich after buying all the productivity apps? Hah ok so it's discounted and I'm cheap that's a horrid combination but I'm getting annoyed with word hero constant force closing and forcing my score down. So I need a time killer and maybe this will be it. Besides after paying if it doesn't live up to hype om gonna have to buy another game that will allow me to vent my violence and anger somewhere hahahh ok just kidding. That's my rant for today. Time to try this out looks interesting. Thanks

Luv the series. Purchased them all. It's awesome on the PlayBook and just as awesome on the Z10. Waiting for the next series. It's a must buy!

The world looks like a Bioshock rip off, right down to the art deco architecture.

That's not necessarily a bad thing though. The first Bioshock was awesome and won tons of awards for its art direction.
