    Deadtime Stories

A ghostly voodoo queen shares her story with you and asks that you help her free the trapped spirits. This hidden object game is filled with multiple spooky and paranormal themed locations. The voodoo queen also serves as a guide on your journey by giving you information and clues to help solve puzzles.

    Each scene has multiple hidden object areas and puzzles to solve. You can go back and forth into each section without having to complete required tasks. A refreshable hint button is available to help you out. Mini puzzles are also included with the game that can be skipped without penalty if you are having difficulty.

    One thing that makes Deadtime Stories one of the best hidden object games in 2010 is that during play you can make potions that will be used to cast voodoo spells for freeing the trapped spirits. A spell and identification book is used during the game for help in finding the appropriate ingredients and items needed for these tasks. Deadtime Stories does not have a time limit, so it can be played at a casual pace without feeling rushed. Find this game through the iWin.com or Big Fish Games.com website.
