    As a find-the-objects exercise, Hidden Treasures is ordinary, but as a bizarre example of a stuffy brand going way off message, the game is an unintentional delight.

    It's just not compelling enough, instead feeling very by the books in terms of what's required of a Hidden Object game. Throw in the fact that controls are a little unresponsive at times and it makes for an average game amongst a sea of other titles that are a more attractive bunch.

    With the exception of infrequent trips to the Roadshow, there's none of the cool historical information that gives the television show its redeeming qualities. Throw in the painfully repetitive tapping, the abysmally unresponsive nature of all iOS hidden-item touchscreen inputs, the irritatingly unfair dust-on-the-screen mechanic, and a dash of insultingly simple mini-games and there's just no excuse.
