    Hidden Through Time isn’t a fast-paced game that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat, but that’s kind of the point. The only reason you might be squinting your eyes, painstakingly staring at the screen would be to find that final tiny hidden object that you’ve been looking for for half an hour. The touchscreen dynamic of the Switch version of the game makes it the definitive version for this reason (in my opinion). Otherwise, you’ll likely just be relaxing while taking in everything the endearing levels have to offer.

    I had way more fun with Hidden Through Time than expected. Of course, if you’re not a fan of the hide and seek premise, this game might not change your mind. But this is a bargain when you consider it’s just $7.99 for everything it includes. If the map editor can be enhanced, this very good game would become a great one.

    Hidden Through Time is pretty cute. It’s got an art style that comes off as a cross between Scribblenauts and The Oatmeal, and as someone who likes both of those things, that appeals to me. Every time I finished a level, some part of me half-expected to hear that little Scribblenauts tune that played whenever you found a shard, which should give you an idea of just how close the resemblance is. But intuitive controls and fun design don’t make for a great game — that would require the game itself to be fun, and honestly, Hidden Through Time just didn’t do it for me. If you’re a diehard hidden object fan who really wants a challenge, it might be worth your time, but if you’re looking for something you can play with your kids, I have a hard time imagining it would pass muster.

    Hidden Through Time is what you can expect from a "Where's Waldo ?" video game look alive: it's fun, makes time fly, and let us focus on some big dioramas through many historical periods. Let's hope that the map editor will give player reasons to come back again and again.
