Review Dexter: Hidden Darkness

Brandon Girod
Great stylized graphics, story is usefully interweaved with gameplay
Puzzles are too easy, too much hand holding
Dexter: Hidden Darkness for Android is a game that puts you in the shoes of “America’s favorite serial killer.” Which is a phrase I’d never think I’d ever have to type out. It’s a hidden object game based around the hit TV show Dexter. In it, you’ll help Dexter take out other serial killers just like he does in the show.
I’ve watched all of about two episodes of Dexter. There was a pretty graphic scene I witnessed and decided to nope it out of there. Fortunately, this is a game that can be easily stomached, though I wouldn’t still wouldn’t let my kid play it. None of the crime scenes are gruesome, though. You’ll see the occasional blood splatter here and there, but nothing crazy, at least from what I’ve seen.
Each case plays out a lot like an episode of Dexter. In the beginning, you’ll receive a call about a murder scene. You’ll go check it out, give your opinion within the context of the story, and then you’ll be left to search for clues on your own. This is where the hidden object mechanics come into play, and they’re honestly a little rough around the edges. Unlike other hidden object games, this one feels like it was catered towards a younger audiences because of how easy the game is.
If you take too long to find something then it will simply highlight what you’re looking for. It also gives you a preview of the item if you need it, and there are tons of hints you can get in the game as well. This is a bit perplexing simply because this game can’t really cater to younger audiences given its subject matter, it’s not going to cater to hardcore hidden object players, and some of the story is rough around the edges for Dexter fans.
All of that said, I still found myself having more fun with Dexter: Hidden Darkness than I did with any other hidden objects game. The strong use of story and the stylistic design goes a lot way for making up the other shortcomings.
