Let’s take a closer look at Under Leaves – a hidden object game set in a background of hand-drawn, natural landscapes. Your eyes are put to the test as different animals challenge you to hunt for specific items (mostly snacks) scattered on a complex watercolour background.
Leave no leaf unturned as you scour each meticulously designed scene. You can start by looking for objects nestled in branches, inside corals or, ahem, under leaves.
Double tapping the screen magnifies your view. This feature comes in handy when you want a closer look at an area densely packed with detail, or if you simply want to appreciate the artwork.
Stages grow in area and increasingly complex as you progress. Some background designs get reused in later stages as a way to throw you off. If you get stuck, click the ‘?’ icon on the right to access an in-game puzzle, which leads to a hint.
The point-and-click gameplay, detailed artwork and soothing soundtrack make Under Leaves a relaxing experience suitable for players of all ages. It can even help sharpen your observation skills and improve your concentration. Try it, and see if you notice anything.
