Photo Hunter Review

Review by Dave LeClair

A while back I did a news post about being drunk at a bar and playing a game where you tap the screen to find the differences between the two pictures. Well I’ve gotten my hands on the game for a while and it’s time for me to let you know how the game compares to the bar touch screen classic. Read on if you’d like to know more.

Photo Hunter is a simple game, you are shown two of the same pictures, and in these two pictures there are five differences, you are tasked with finding the differences between these two pictures before the time runs out. It’s a classic game that’s been in bars for years and now it’s available on your iPhone, chock full of pictures and drunken photo matching goodness!

The game offers a ton of pictures for you too match. When you start off you choose your category, they range from general to sports to  Nature and even random, a mix of all of them.

The menus are presented in a nice slack manner and choosing what game mode you want looks nice. Other then the menus it’s touch to really say anything about the visuals because it’s a game where you are looking at real life photos, but the presentation if very sleek and clean. The same can be said for sound, while there isn’t much there, what is there works.

Overall, the game is very simple by design so there isn’t much else I can say, if you like that game at the bar, then this is absolutely worth picking up, it plays almost exactly like the bar games. It’s fun to play in short bursts, but it’s not something you are going to invest hours in.

Presentation & Graphics

The menus look solid and the overall presentation is very nice, there’s not a lot to say about the graphics because you are looking at real world pictures, but overall the game looks good.

Sound


Nothing special, it’s not intrusive, but it’s not great either, it’s just there.

Gameplay:


It’s very well done, tapping the images is very accurate, and the difficulty is pretty hard, its a solid feeling system, that is a lot of fun for small chunks of gameplay.

Game life:


There are a lot of photo’s to play with, but by the inherent nature of this game, it’s only fun to play for a little while.
Game rating:

Final word:

It does what it sets out to do, it’s exactly like the bar game, which is great, but it’s also it’s biggest flaw because there is not a lot of depth, but it’s fun for short chunks, that is if you’re like me and you really like Photo Hunting. If that’s tjhe case, it’s totally worth the $.99 price tag.
