Anyone who has ever read a copy of Highlights magazine knows what a hidden object game is. Players are presented with a big picture and are tasked with finding the objects hidden within. With the advent of social gaming and its ability to easily feed players new content and connect them with friends, the genre seen new life. Take for example Game Insight's Mystery Manor: Hidden Adventure which has now made the leap to iPad.

The 8 million people that have already played Mystery Manor: Hidden Adventure since its release on sites like Facebook and Orkut know that the game's hook is its atmosphere. In order to break the secret of Mystery Manor and find Mister X players must look for objects inside a hand-drawn haunted house filled with all of the zombies, monsters, gypsies and other creatures that implies. Beyond that though the game seems to offer enough puzzles and challenge modes to make the gameplay worthwhile as well.

Game Insight plans to offer new content like extra characters and quests on a fairly regular basis. They claim one "will never finish the game." Best of all, Mystery Manor: Hidden Adventure is available for free.

FREEday 12/16/11 - Free Games This Week

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on December 16th, 2011

Holy heck this was a great week for the free games. Free! Games! Right? OK, OK, I'll stop crowing and just get to the games. Fine. Geeze.

Breakout Boost - "Atari’s been reviving their classic franchises on iOS; first was the dual-stick shooter reinvention of Asteroids as Asteroids Gunner. While that took a lot of liberties with the Asteroids formula, their latest reinvention, Breakout Boost, is a bit more traditional. The classic Arkanoid-esque gameplay is here: break all the bricks by bouncing a ball off of a paddle at the bottom of the screen."


Mad Tracks - From iTunes: "Zoom through super sized 3D environments jam-packed with special power-ups against up to 3 other players in real-time. Compete in a mad dash to the finish or battle it out in one of the many mini-games and challenges."

Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World - "Previously a PC point and click adventure, Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World follows the tale of Kaptain Brawe, a Space Police officer on a mission to rescue two kidnapped alien scientists. It sounds like serious business but it actually forms the basis of a very entertaining storyline. The humor is reminiscient of Lucasarts and classic Telltale Games titles.

Real Soccer 2012 - From iTunes: "Real Soccer is back for the new season, bringing soccer on mobile to a new era! Join the community of fans as you create and share content with the Custom Kit Editor. "

The Sims: Freeplay - From iTunes: "LIVE FREE! From the creators of The Sims™ 3 series of best-selling iPhone games, comes an ALL-NEW Sims experience that you can play for FREE on iPhone and iPad!"

Marathon 2: Durandal - From iTunes: "Welcome to Marathon 2: Durandal, the second in the epic trilogy of first person shooter games that re-defined the genre. Experience the pulse-pounding action as you once again defend humanity from the alien Pfhor."

Mystery Manor: Hidden Adventure - From iTunes: "Mystery Manor is a mystery-style hidden objects game. In a mystic mansion, inhabited by strange but lovely people, spooky monsters and funny ghosts you’ll have to find hidden objects, unlock new rooms and complete quests. "
