Mae Q’West and the Sign of the Stars game review

In my life I learned that horoscopes are not real and sometimes they are pure coincidence. However, in the case of our protagonist in Mae Q’West and the sign of the stars, her horoscope seems to speak of the main events of her life. Well, sometimes fortunes are still figurative, but I guess for a desperate woman like Mae, the Capricorn zodiac still gives her hope in this hidden object hunt.

You see, Mae is the mother of two children, and three years ago, she remembers Jack Q’West coming home from an expedition to Alaska. Unfortunately, Jack’s boat sank and the search parties never found him. He was later proclaimed dead, but thank goodness he left Mae and her children support for life. However, in the present day, horoscopes tell Mae that she will soon find love once again, and thus she begins her quest to investigate the mysterious disappearance of her husband.

There are two types of hidden object games that you will have to play in Mae Q’West and Sign of the Stars. One is a traditional enumerated object search type and the other is a difference detection type. In both games, your task is to find the key item of the level and meet the hidden objects found quota to progress through the story. But apart from this, you can optionally delete other additional tasks as well.

Each item you find rewards you with a few dollars when you find them, but in addition to money, you will also have to collect stars, and this is where additional tasks play their part. Money and stars are used to purchase zodiac constellations which function as the game’s trophy system. If you exceed the minimum requirements of each level, you will be sure to buy all the constellations in the game. Be careful, though, as every hint, click error, or level reset will penalize you some hard-earned money instead of the time penalty common in most hidden object games.
