Review

Murder Island: Secret of Tantalus is an interesting hidden-object game in which you will visit a Greek island to attend a school reunion that will end in murder. Your job will be to find clues that can help you catch the murderer. The application is composed of several hidden-object games that you will play as the story unfolds. In these games, you will need to find the items listed. The scenes are very crowded and the objects are very well-camouflaged with the surroundings, so the game is pretty challenging. On every scene, you will find items that will be placed in your inventory for future use and there are lots of explorable areas that you can zoom in and out.

If you need help, you can use hints, which are unlimited but you will need to wait some time for the meter to recharge until you can use them again. There are no penalties for random clicking, but if you do it, the screen will get locked for a couple of seconds. Unfortunately, the game only includes one mode, but there are many enjoyable mini-games. Sadly, the graphics are rather simple as well as the sounds, but the music is suitable.

To conclude, Murder Island: Secret of Tantalus is just an ordinary hidden-object game which has an interesting story that may get your attention.
