Gameplay of Lost and Found Agency Collector’s Edition

Since Lost and Found Agency Collector’s Edition has no plot, we are going straight to gameplay. The game is a collection of classic hidden object scenes. 

In each scene, we have different objects to find. Once you find an object, another one is at the bottom of the screen. Along with those, we also need to find some particular objects whose outlines are shown on the left side of the screen. We always have a raccoon to find; afterwards, the objects are random. You get stars for found objects, with a maximum of 3 stars per level. Each of the scenes contains several scenes within scenes- sparkles note those areas. Once you’ve found everything you need, the mini scene closes automatically. 

This is another intricately detailed scene from "Lost and Found Agency Collector’s Edition" displaying a hidden object challenge. The room is brimming with a diverse array of items against a backdrop of a stone wall and a fireplace. Objects of interest include a world map, rolled-up documents, an antique camera, and a dartboard. The bottom of the image features a taskbar with the 'EXTRA' and 'MENU' options, a list of items to find, such as a briefcase, darts, and a sextant, and a 'HINT' button. A score counter is at the top, and the overall ambiance hints at the adventures and puzzles awaiting in the game. Published on: LadiesGamers.
It’s a start.

We have a minigame for every two hidden object scenes, which can be skipped. None of the games or hidden object scenes have timers, so you can take all the time you need. They do, however, have a hint button. 

Since we are talking about the Collector’s Edition, we should mention that Lost and Found Agency: Collector’s Edition contains bonus content that is not found in the game’s standard version. The Collector’s Edition includes eight additional locations and 20 additional minigames, downloadable wallpapers with artwork from the game, and access to the soundtrack. We also have a collector’s room and a vault for our achievements in the game as found objects. 

The game’s artwork is beautiful if it could be more apparent. The style is the photorealistic type we often see in games of this calibre. The soundtrack is pleasant enough not to turn off. 

A screenshot from "Lost and Found Agency Collector’s Edition" showcases the Collector's Edition contents menu, surrounded by ornate scrollwork frames. The menu offers a variety of extra features: Bonus Levels with an image of a cluttered garage, Lost Items featuring an image of a storage room, and Wallpapers displaying a lively street scene. Additional selections include Bonus Puzzles with a colorful labyrinth design, More Puzzle Games hinting at a collection of tokens and keys, and a Music Player that lists tracks numerically for selection. A 'BACK' button is available for navigation. Each option is vividly illustrated to entice the player with the additional content available in the game. Published on: LadiesGamers.

Some Notes

Lost and Found Agency Collector’s Edition has basic audio and display settings. It doesn’t have Steam achievements or trading cards. 

One thing I really didn’t like, and the main reason why I can’t really recommend the game, is its inconsistent performance. It played mostly fine, with some stuttering when clicking on an object, but once in a while, I would have a gaming session with so much stuttering that it rendered the game unplayable. I don’t know if it was my computer or something in the game, but this is my experience. 

A digital puzzle from "Lost and Found Agency Collector’s Edition" displayed on a tablet within the game setting. The puzzle consists of a network of hexagons, each with a number from 1 to 4, against a glowing blue background. Players are instructed to establish connections between hexagons so that the number of connections matches the hexagon number. The interface includes a score counter in the top left corner, and 'MENU' and 'SKIP' options are accessible below the puzzle. The image suggests a minigame that requires logical thinking and strategy, enhancing the gameplay experience. Published on: LadiesGamers.
A minigame.

Conclusion

Lost and Found Agency Collector’s Edition has all the hallmarks of a good hidden object game: gameplay, artwork, soundtrack, no timer, and hints galore. However, it was not smooth sailing for me, and this is why I can’t recommend it. On the other hand, it has plenty of satisfied players out there. 

 Final Verdict: I’m Not Sure. I'm not sure
