For the review, I was kindly provided with a PC (Steam) copy of the game. Continue reading to find out more about the game. Once you’re done here, you can check out our previous reviews.

The Game

If you haven’t seen the original game, Hidden Through Time is a modern version of Where’s Wally?. It’s more than that, but that’s what I say to people so that they know exactly what I am talking about straight away. Officially, it is labelled as a hidden object and puzzle game.

Hidden Through Time 2: Myths & Magic continues the trend from the first game whereby players must find objects hidden around each level to then continue to the next. I will start by saying the graphics are very basic, but, that’s what adds to the charm of this game.

There are lots of little animated characters and animals running around the levels making it harder for you to spot your targets. To add to the brilliantly hand-drawn graphics, we have a very relaxing soundtrack to help us along the way.

Handheld gamers rejoice!

I will also add that this game is perfect for the Steam Deck and other handhelds such as the Lenovo Legion Go. It’s almost like the devs made the game and were just thinking “Sod those lot on those powerful PCs and consoles, let’s focus on that little handheld that can!”.

This is how all devs should think when it comes to PC games! Of course, I am joking. But it is nice when you get a game and it just works flawlessly not only on PC but also on other bits of kit like the Steam Deck or a laptop, for example.

Anyway, back to the game. So yeah, you have to find a various number of objects in each level. These objects could be right there in front of you, they could be hiding behind a building that you have to click on to see the inside, or behind a bush. These are just a few examples of the many that are in the game.

But not only that, those objects may be hiding in the level, but another reality. That’s where this game is mostly different from the original. It has a mode called Reality Shift which at the press of a button, will switch the level to a whole different timeline. So let’s say you’re looking for a caveman, but he’s not in this world of knights and dragons… Tap reality shift and all of a sudden everything has changed, and there is our caveman hiding in plain sight.

It’s a bloody brilliant idea and has been executed very well.

Conclusions

Hidden Through Time 2: Myths & Magic is just as fun as the original. Although I did like the idea and how well executed the “Reality Shift” mode is. If you wish to learn more, you can visit the official site for the game.

If you buy this game, you will lose hours of your life but will not regret it at all. Especially if you enjoyed the first.

I give Hidden Through Time 2: Myths & Magic a score of 8/10.
