10 Gnomes episode 3: Early Spring Garden has been released! The third installment in the 10 Gnomes series by Submachine author Mateusz Skutnik continues the point-and-click "find the gnome" gameplay that holds our attention for precisely ten minutes. The goal is simple: click your way through a photographic landscape searching for hidden cartoon gnomes. You only have ten minutes to find all ten, so speed is just as important as a sharp eye.
Photographic images, all toned down to grayscale, make up the environment in each 10 Gnomes episode. This installment drops you in a garden where gnomes have hidden themselves behind bushes and inside bamboo stalks all around the area. Using the mouse, simply pan left and right searching for hotspots that allow you to zoom in for a closer look. Explore every nook and cranny of the eerily quiet garden to find the gnomes before time runs out.
What 10 Gnomes offers is glaringly simple: a streamlined hidden object game clothed in point-and-click robes. Its premise can be summed up in one terse sentence and you can easily make your way through each episode before your coffee gets cold. But what makes the games special is the sleek, almost artsy feel to the entire presentation, right down to the grayscale photographs and dark, troubled music. But of course you're searching for happy little gnomes, so it isn't as serious as it sounds.
Another great installment in the simple but fun series.
