Though you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who’s still alive from the day the Titanic sank, the public’s fascination with the doomed ocean liner has only grown over the years. The Titanic has been the subject of countless books, movies, TV specials and documentaries, and now you can add a new iOS game to the mix. National Geographic and PlayWay have officially announced Titanic: Unsolved Mystery, which will provide the most interactive experience with the famed ship yet.

The game is divided between present and past as heroine Lillian explores the wreckage of the Titanic, which is now an underwater museum. Lillian’s quest is a bit of a tragic one, as her great-grandmother died when the boat sank and she would like to know more about the woman she never knew. The hidden-object gameplay is set in historically accurate recreations of the ship’s interior just as it appeared 100 years ago.

Titanic: Unsolved Mystery is slated to launch sometime in the second quarter of 2012.

Those players of Say What You See: The Collection who downloaded the in-app collection of puzzles, Grace’s Toons, should feel very proud of themselves having raised over £21,000 to help disabled British child Grace Windram.

For the uninformed, Say What You See: The Collection is a game that’s exactly as the title suggests. A hidden object game quite like Where’s Waldo with a hint of Dingbats, players must search each picture for objects while also unraveling their meanings too.

Say What You See: The Collection offers plenty of different in-app themed packages with Grace’s Toons, launched in September, involving 50 well-known cartoon names amongst a Road-runner-esque backdrop. In the 8 weeks since release, £21,000 was raised through the in-app package enabling Grace Windram to have a much happier life.

Little Grace suffers from Spastic Dyplegic Cerebral Palsy, affecting the tone in her legs and arms as well as core muscles across her body. The money raised means she can have a life changing operation in the USA called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy, which will remove the tightness in her legs and will eventually enable her to learn to walk.

A fantastic effort indeed!

The money might have been raised but why not give Say What You See: The Collection a try now? It’s free to download with plenty of in-app packs available to extend the fun.

Coming soon to the iPad is Emma and the Inventor, a new hidden object game from Big Fish Games and Tricky Software.

We all should know by now that Big Fish Games are the gods of hidden object games but Tricky Software might not be so well known just yet. They previously developed Spore Origins and Spore Creatures as well as more recently Crayola ColorStudio. Now they’ve taken their skills and applied them to Emma and the Inventor.

Looking at the few screenshots we’ve been given and the previous information from the PC/Mac release of the title, it’s looking pretty intriguing. It’s a hidden object title but one that promises to offer some challenging puzzles too, presumably as part of the inventing side of the game. Hopefully this will mean a deeper casual gaming experience.

No release date has been announced yet but we’ll ensure we have more details to offer soon!

G5 Entertainment have been pretty consistent with their releases of casual gaming experiences like Mahjongg Artifacts, Virtual City and my personal favorite Supermarket Mania, ensuring that casual gaming doesn’t mean poor gaming. There’s a new title on the way in the form of Special Enquiry Detail: The Hand that Feeds.

Special Enquiry Detail is a hidden object game focusing on the first case of a new investigative unit of the same name. Detectives Turino and Lamonte must solve the mysterious death of a wealthy benefactor’s daughter. Gameplay consists of 12 different chapters with 25 exciting mini-games to hopefully enthral players. 30 realistic locations to explore and find objects within are also promised.

Special Enquiry Detail: The Hand that Feeds is set to be released for all iOS devices on July 14th. It’ll be a free app to try with the full version unlocked with an in-app purchase of $4.99 for the iPhone/iPod touch or $6.99 for the iPad version.
