There's certainly something to be said for a game that leaves me thinking about it and wanting more. Wind Peaks definitely grew on me. But, reaching the end after playing for just over three hours (and getting all achievements) is a tough pill to swallow for a $14.99 game. I hope the sequel plays it less conservatively.
I like Wind Peaks its an acceptable hidden object game. It is however limited with its story and interactive elements in the game are mainly the items you are tasked with finding. I’ve played a few games in this genre and this one is fine for what it is. It does feel more like a prologue than a fully-fledged story, it is short on playtime and also has an abrupt ending! I feel it might be a little overpriced on the Nintendo Switch, £9.99 is somewhat high for roughly an hours worth of play. So with that in mind, my score is…
I didn’t know what to expect when Wind Peaks landed. I’ve previously attempted the hidden object genre without any lasting connection, yet the visual design and world of Wind Peaks… piqued my interest. The storyline only lasts a couple of hours but engages throughout. Wind Peaks is a joyful, wholesome and relaxing experience that aims to stand tall and succeeds.
