Now here’s something you don’t see every day – a 3D hidden-object game (“HOG”) that lets players move around environments in order to find items. The concept works very well in Annabel, an Egyptian-themed adventure from Jet Dog Studios.

Annabel begins in modern times, when a young female tourist visits a museum in Egypt. She hears a disturbing ancient tale about another “Annabel,” a princess whose lover, Akhenaten was sacrificed to the gods by an evil high priest. Not only do the two women look alike but our contemporary heroine is magically transported back to ancient Egypt and must try to undo the fate of her handsome prince. As we learn during the first few minutes of the game, the nasty Amertekh is keeping Princess Annabel captive as his forced marriage to her enables him to become a full-fledged Pharaoh and take control over Egypt. He also plans on killing her boyfriend.
