Hidden Objects: Twilight Town combines the features of city builder and search and find games, allowing players to explore tons of unique objects, in 21 hidden locations with various anomalies for each.

Hidden Objects: Twilight Town offers players the opportunity to solve the mysteries plaguing the fine citizens of Twilight Town. The player enters the game being summoned to Twilight Town to act as the judge of the town’s other inhabitants. The previous judge was struck down before he could expose the real culprit. It is soon apparent that there is more to this spooky and mysterious town and its inhabitants than meets the eye.

Using a keen eye, as well as their puzzle and city building skills, players will play nine entertaining mini-games that will keep them enthralled for hours. The mini-games include casino games, search-and-find games, word puzzles, jewel matching, and fortune teller entertainments. By playing each game, the “judge” will come ever closer to deducing the mystery behind the game’s true villain!

“When we decided to create ‘Hidden Objects: Twilight Town,’ we knew we wanted to create a game that players could feel familiar with, yet present them with a never-before seen challenge,” says Absolutist founder Alexander Zaslavsky. “The game offers more than 90 core tasks, bringing a unique type of gameplay to iOS devices. This makes the game an attractive and enthralling combination of mini-games and city building that keeps players entertained throughout the entire adventure.”

* Run an investigation to track down the villain
* Delve into the deepest, darkest secrets of the mysterious city of Twilight Town
* Discover a stunning mix of hidden-object and city-building games
* 9 mini games, including Casino, Word Puzzle, Match 3 Jewels, and Fortune Teller games
* Use city building strategy and management skills to keep the inhabitants happy
* Interact with a colorful cast of characters, each with two guises

In addition to solving puzzles, players will need to solve time management problems, unloading cargoes, monitoring shipping and production in the town, and keeping citizens entertained and happy with their lives. Players will meet the town’s inhabitants as they explore the area, helping out where they can, receiving rewards for finding lost objects. But be careful, the handsome gent in the pub could also be a werewolf in disguise, as no one is really as they seem to be!

It is also important to keep energy levels high, and to collect rewards wherever they can be found. While the game can be played for short periods of time, making an excellent time passer of a diversion, players are also rewarded for playing for an extended time and for playing each day, thus depositing more cash and gems in their account in the town bank. There is always the opportunity to win in the casinos, playing any one of a number of games of luck. When solving word puzzles, players will receive information about the history of Twilight Town, as well as find enchanted collectibles, all helpful in the pursuit of finding out the truth about Twilight Town.
