In much the same way that freemium games tend not to mention in their blurbs how often you'll need top your Energy to keep playing, hidden-object games rarely mention that every couple of minutes you'll have to stop what you're doing and look for a - typically random - kettle in a haystack.
Return to Ravenhearst only hints at its true nature, by stressing that you'll be "seeking out clues in over 150 detailed scenes". Its blurb places a far greater emphasis on storyline and puzzle-solving.
This is a smart move, as the game's gently spine-tingling atmosphere and ghostly tale are infinitely more appealing than its object-hunting gameplay.
A highly polished entry in the hidden object ghost story canon that casual puzzlers will adore. Hidden object haters, meanwhile, would be best off haunting another corner of Google Play
