Review Enigma Express

Tariq Abdulla
Can be played without in-app purchases, well-balanced difficulty, exciting plot
No significant drawbacks
Enigma Expressfor Android is a hidden object game with a neat little detective plot. Eight mysterious objects have been stolen from a secret vault belonging to a mastermind criminal called 5 Fingers. What are they? Who took them? Why? I have no idea yet. That's the enigma. And that's why you have to keep playing.
You progress by earning points which convert to jigsaw pieces, which you then need enough of to unlock the next level. You need to identify enough hidden objects in a limited amount of time (like a minute and a half). The objects you need to find pop up at the bottom of the screen. Sometimes you can look for multiple different objects at the same time, and sometimes you need to find each object before progressing to the next one.
I don't usually play hidden object games, because I feel like they are probably too easy. But this one is harder than it looks: those objects can be any size, and they blend really well into the 3D scene. It's actually challenging to find them quickly enough to unlock new levels. The sound effects are atmospheric. I love the dramatic sounds made when you finish a level so much that I want to keep playing just to hear them again.
The characters are so detailed that they look like they should have their own 3D animated movie or series. You play a young detective called Hannah Dakota. Your sidekick is a dog called Watson, complete with Sherlock Holmes cap, cape and pipe. Watson can help you locate objects occasionally if you get stuck, and you can also use some "agency tools" such as speeding up Watson's recharge time.
The game will send you on the enigma express train around the UK and France, and probably other countries too as the developers keep spinning the mystery out. They make you wait a few minutes in between each level "for the train tracks to be built", or you can fast track it with game coins. There's also an energy system for actually playing levels. With a little bit of patience though, there's really no need for in-app purchases.
