These “hidden object” games are addictive. We’re onto a new one, called “Mystery P.I., Stolen in San Francisco.”

This is a great game for playing side by side with your sweetie. In it, $250 million in gold has been stolen from an armored car. The gold’s owner has hired you, ace detective, to find and return it before the trail goes cold.  Along the way, you’ll find 2100 hidden objects in 25 San Francisco scenes. We liked the puzzles interspersed throughout as much as the hidden object games.

Mystery P.I. is $20 from spintop-games.com. We thought this was high, but you get an hour to play for free before deciding whether you want to buy it. By the time we’d finished our hour, we were hooked. It’s a much higher quality experience than we’ve gotten from free online games.

The average person takes 10 hours to finish a complete round and usually plays it two more times in an attempt to improve their score.
