Every so often companies throw us a curve
ball here at Family Friendly Gaming. I can't really complain because we
always throw some kind of a change up in our interviews. In fact more
than one person I have interviewed told me how much they appreciated I
kept them on their toes. They never knew what to expect, and they liked
Art Mogul is sort of a hidden object game. I can just see the question now from our readers - "hey you guys are the experts, what do you mean sort of? Can't you tell your millions of readers what it is?" My response would be - please be patient and read the rest of the review. Hopefully it will make sense by then.
We purchase paintings in Art Mogul in a variety of ways. We can go to galleries, auctions, and cafes to pick up priced paintings. When we are in a gallery we find hidden objects (two or three per picture) to lower the cost of the painting we are buying. When we sell a painting we have to find a few hidden objects.
The cafe is where we get pick up black market paintings. So there we have to determine if the painting is real or a forgery. At the auction house if we find a certain hidden object on the painting quickly we can distract a fellow bidder and have them stop bidding. If the auction house wants a certain painting we have to show which aspect of the painting matches their request for money.
As you can see Art Mogul contains some mild hidden object elements. However the main core game play in Art Mogul is to purchase painting low in one city and sell them higher in another city. Increase our profits, and thankfully the US government is not running in and taking half - telling us we didn't build that.
Art lovers and art appreciators will thoroughly enjoy Art Mogul. I can also see this iPad game reaching those who enjoy turning a profit. Especially when we do not need to worry about the cost of airfare to fly from one city to another one. Hidden object fans may get into Art Mogul, but it is pretty light on that game play aspect.
