Opinion: These sort of games have always seemed a little boring to me in the past, and while there are a good amount of these types of games available on Android, none of them really inspire me all that much. The Hidden Treasure of Nahala is different though, if only thanks to the well thought out design process and the high level of polish the game has. The story behind the 3D graphics and cutscenes are genuinely intriguing and there’s a lot on offer to wrap your head around, with difficult and challenging riddles and puzzles on offer to fill the game out.

  • Theme (5/5) – While the 3D graphics might be lacking a little in charm, they’re good-looking and the whole game has a high level of polish running throughout.
  • Overall (4/5) – With high-quality 3D graphics, cutscenes and challenging puzzles on offer, the Hidden Treasure of Nahala is certainly something to give a try.

Pros

  • Nice and gradual lead-in to the story, but still leaves the mystery wide open.
  • 3D animations and cutscenes give the game a living, unique identity.
  • Puzzles and riddles are challenging, but they all link up as you might expect.
  • Items are needed in order to interact properly with the game and get to the bottom of the secret of the treasure.

Cons

  • Some voice acting or characters could liven up the game.
  • 3D environments are good-looking and work well, but they all seem a little too perfect, with little to no charm.

Conclusion: I had a lot of fun playing The Hidden Treasure of Nahala and while I haven’t gotten to the bottom of the mystery just yet, I’m looking forward to getting there. For fans of mystery games, hidden object games and more, this is well worth a look. So too, is it worth giving a go if you haven’t played something like this before.
