Been playing Hidden Folks and need a few hints to help uncover tricky hidden objects like the chicken or banana. We’ve got a complete walkthrough of the game here, with all the cheats you need to finish various Hidden Folks levels.
If you love hidden picture puzzles like the infamous Where’s Waldo, then the new iOS game Hidden Folks will be right up your alley. The new game by indie developer Adriaan de Jongh features a number of intricately drawn animated scenes by illustrator Sylvain Tegroeg. In the scenes, players are tasked with finding several different hidden characters or objects. With each hidden item players are given a tiny hint about where they may find them, but it will still take a great deal of exploration and attention to detail in order to uncover them all. Some of the hidden items are out in the open while others require the player to interact with the picture in some way to discover them. For example, players will find themselves tapping on holes in the ground, seeds, tent flaps and more to change the picture and in some cases reveal a hidden object.
We spent a couple hours with Hidden Folks and found both the art and animation of the game truly compelling as we searched for the Hidden Folks. While the game does a pretty good job of starting you off slow and getting you ready for more challenging levels, for those of you that may find yourself a tiny bit stuck on one challenge or other, we’ve put together a guide of tips tricks and cheats for uncovering all the hidden folks in the game. So far we’ve uncovered everything within the Forest and Farming levels. We’ll continue to add hints for further levels as we unlock them.
Happy Folk Finding!
