Pickers is an interesting take on the
hidden object genre. Pickers actually gives us a reason to look for
items. We find items in Pickers, and then take them back to our shop to
sell. We can clean them up for more money, appraise them, and even
auction them off. Both sellers and customers can haggle about the
prices. This does effect how they view you. So you may have to eat the
cost a few times to get back in good graces.
Each of the twelve locations in Pickers have a hidden object spot. In that spot we look for a laundry list of items, and end up with a special item at the end. We also get paid per item we find. The rest of the items on other screens at these locations can be picked up and purchased. Each day there is a different genre we are paid additional money for. An example would be toys.
The items in Pickers look extremely realistic. Pickers is one good looking iPad game. Please note this game is on other systems like PC and MAC. I am personally pleased to see Personal Computer and Macintosh games being ported over to the iPad platform. The characters in Pickers are some serious characters. They are what you would expect to run into in those kinds of places.
There are multiple difficulty setting in Pickers. Players can enjoy Pickers day after day. The price of Pickers on the iPad is currently $6.99, which is a little pricey compared to other games on this platform. I know MumboJumbo has been successful, so I won't question it. I just know how frugal many of our readers are. Why? Because I am generally frugal myself.
I love how Pickers does not punish me for tapping all over the screen. I admit it, I am lazy when it comes to hidden object games. I do not want to stare at a screen looking for an item here or there. Pickers also contains a hint feature to help the player find missing items. The coolest part about Pickers is the bartering system and how it relates to the mood bar of that person.
Pickers can be used as a tool for families to teach basic economic principals. Find something for a low price, and sell it for a higher price. This is what stores (retailers) all over the world utilize. This is a reason many try to go straight to the manufacturer to purchase products. There is something very exciting about finding an item for a cheap price, and being able to turn it into a profit.
