We liked?


Tons of classic hidden object jumbles will delight old school fans, and an interesting storyline keeps players engaged.

Not so much?


There is a decent amount of gratuitous back and forth, where you run to one environment, grab one thing, then run right back, but the ability to warp between locations via the map makes it tolerable.

A madman is on the loose, and the very existence of an entire town depends upon you catching him.

In Questerium: Sinister Trinity, you play as a detective, summoned to a small town in the wake of a disaster. The town has been virtually destroyed by the experiments of a crazed professor. After a meteorite hit, the professor used it to experiment – both on plants and on humans. At first, it seemed a harmless yet extremely efficient source of energy, one that could make a lot of money for the professor and his backers. But it soon becomes apparent that the meteorite is far from harmless.

As the game begins, you enter the town to see two small children trapped in a building. As you move to rescue them, a mysterious electrified man grabs the children, seemingly intent on kidnapping them. And so begins a chase, as you try to both rescue the children and figure out what is going on. Mutated plants are everywhere, each with their own quirks caused by the radiation from the meteorite. Though you won’t really interact with the plants, you can collect them, creating a book of plants and their properties you can look through any time.

In addition to plants, you can also collect money that disappeared during a bank robbery that was suspected to have been carried out by the professor. Finding cash here and there adds an extra challenge to the game, as it is generally quite well hidden. You can also use the cash to purchase items to enhance your garden. Decorating the garden and collecting the cash are both optional, and whether you find them or not will not have an overall effect on the game. But they do add a little something for completionists, and anyone who loves a good challenge.

The story in Questerium is really well done, with players gaining little bits of information here and there as you advance in the game, giving it an air of mystery that keeps you guessing as to what really happened. The gameplay is equally well done, with tons of challenging puzzles to keep players busy. Though you will find various needed items just laying around in the many environments in Questerium, you will also do a ton of standard hidden object finds. These puzzles, where players are given a list of objects to find within a jumble on a fixed screen, are what really draws many fans to the genre. It’s refreshing to see a game that is devoted to offering both challenging puzzles and an interesting storyline.

Questerium: Sinister Trinity, Collector’s Edition is a great example of what the hidden object adventure genre has to offer. With a mysterious storyline that keeps you guessing, tons of hidden object jumbles as well as various mini games, and a solid amount of gameplay, it is well worth the price of admission. Gamers who finish the entire adventure are even treated to a bonus chapter, which helps close out the story featured in the game. Whether you’re already a fan of hidden object adventures, or you’re a newcomer looking to give them a try, you can’t go wrong with Questerium.
