Jane Lucky is one of the many hidden object puzzle games that got so popular lately. It’s a typical hidden object game that doesn’t bring any special features and gets its uniqueness from the originality of the storyline.
I’ve never been a big fan of this type of games as I never had the patience to look for clues in a static image, but I have to admit this one is pretty catchy, especially thanks to its story. Don’t expect a screenwriting masterpiece though, just a pretty interesting and appealing adventure based on the finding of an ancient artifact. The protagonist of the story is the same character that gives the name to the game: an archaeologist named Jane Lucky. She’s supposed to be both pretty and smart, but she’s somehow failing at showing her second set of qualities throughout the game, especially since you’re the one that has to help solve rather simple puzzles or find hidden objects that are not exactly hard to detect. Though it failed at being challenging, the game comes with pretty nice imagery and artworks. Besides its nice graphics and the cool story line, I also liked the fact that it’s pretty neat, lightweight and resource-friendly. It will run pretty well on older computers too.
In conclusion, though it’s not my type of game, I have to admit that Jane Lucky will surely find its fans and please plenty of players, especially those into hidden-object puzzle games that have nice stories.
