Those secret missions might end up being less exciting, but at least this game has the atmosphere down.
JetSet Secrets is a new social game (I guess that’s officially been christened as a new genre) which purports to take you to exotic locations around the world as part of a story dealing with espionage, untold villainy, and shocking secrets.
Actually, you’ll just be going to Facebook a lot, and getting your friends to do the same, while you try to find hidden objects in a bunch of themed pictures. The whole game sometimes has the air of an old ’60s Bond movie, with classic, smokey casinos and evil archvillains. The bulk of the game is, again, finding hidden objects in a variety of pictures. The pictures are well illustrated, and based on real locations around the world like Angkor Wat and the Golden Gate Bridge. Those hidden objects you’ll be looking for will be clues that you, a globe-trotting detective, will use to unravel the mysteries of the game.
The main mode of the game will grant you points based on how quickly and accurately you find the objects. There will also be time trial modes and a spot the difference mode. You’ll be able to see the words of the items you’re looking for, but if you want to up the difficulty, you can have those words scrambled, or have them scroll across the screen – once the word disappears, so too does your chance of finding the item.
Throughout the game, you’ll be able to add to your own secret hideout, while unlocking more and more pictures and prizes. The game is free-to-play, which of course means that you’ll probably be paying plenty in microtransactions, especially if you don’t want to have to pester your friends to join in order to earn points. You can kick off your secret jet set life on Facebook now.
