The Secrets of Arcelia Island is an enjoyable hidden-object game with an attractive story. In this game, you will explore different areas of your ship and a deserted island looking for your father and the rest of the crew, who have gone missing after a shipwreck. The scenes will include highlighted areas which you will need to explore. In most scenes, you will need to search for a list of items and one or more of them will be automatically placed in your inventory for later use. The scenes are well-done and the objects are perfectly camouflaged with the environment.

The game offers two modes for different skills levels: Casual and Expert. In both modes, you will have hints, which will highlight an object from the list, in case you get stuck. The hints are unlimited, but they take some time to recharge, especially in Expert mode. There are no penalties for random clicking, but you won't be able to move your cursor for a few seconds. The game offers nice and good-quality graphics, realistic sounds, and pleasant music.

To conclude, if you are looking for an enjoyable hidden-object game with an interesting story and lots of things to discover, The Secrets of Arcelia Island may be a good choice.
