Secrets of Great Art is a beautiful game in which you must help the protagonist recover her memory by completing a series of games. The game is comprised mainly of hidden object scenes and a few mini-games that depict real paintings. Whenever you start a new level, there is a brief letter from the main character telling you a bit more about his story. Then there appear the names of the painting and its creator. Hidden object games are well-done, since the objects are cleverly hidden and some of them are perfectly camouflaged with the background. Some of them are easier to find than others. The game provides three hints per level that can be used as you wish, although some points will be deducted from your score. There are also penalties for multiple clicking without finding an object. Mini-games include spot-the-differences games, sliding puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, memory games, among others.
There is only one mode, and it is timed, so the faster you complete a scene, the more points you get. It is a shame that it doesn't include a relaxed mode to take as much as you want.
The graphics are fantastic and the music is really pleasant and relaxing. The game is also pretty extensive, so I'm sure you will be playing it for a while.
I think art fans are gonna love this game as much as I do.
