Disney Launches Zootopia Crime Files: Hidden Object on Mobile

The hidden object game asks players to help Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde solve cases by completing hidden object scenes.

Disney announced the launch of Zootopia Crime Files: Hidden Object on mobile. The hidden object game asks players to help Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde solve cases by completing hidden object scenes.

In each normal scene, players are asked to find items on a list, which may include pieces of evidence or clues for the current case. Users can access hints if they need help finding objects.

As users progress, they’ll also unlock additional kinds of scenes. For instance, one scene may ask users to find as many hidden objects as possible in a limited amount of time, while another may ask them to “unscramble” a scene’s image by moving scrambled pieces of the image to their proper locations.

Players will earn points as they complete scenes. Users can replay scenes to earn additional points, which go toward unlocking mastery stars for those scenes. Players can collect up to five mastery stars on each scene.

These stars are a type of currency, which can be used to examine evidence, talk to suspects and more. While some pieces of evidence can be examined instantly, other items need to be analyzed in the lab. Evidence takes time to analyze, but users have the option to spend premium currency to skip the wait. In addition, scenes require energy to begin. While energy recharges automatically over time, users can also purchase energy instantly with premium currency.

As players progress through each case, they’ll learn traits about the culprit, as well as traits about the suspects. At the end of each case, users can arrest the proper suspect by identifying the suspect whose traits most match the culprit’s.

As players solve cases, they can continue earning mastery stars in these cases, even after they’ve moved on to new crimes. Players can also spend stars to unlock an “additional investigation” for each case, which contains a second story for them to complete.

At launch, Zootopia Crime Files: Hidden Object includes 36 scenes and 18 bonus stages. Disney said additional clues, scenes and cases will be added to the game “in the coming months.”

Zootopia Crime Files: Hidden Object is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore. The game is also available to download for free on the Windows Store for PC. The title is part of Amazon Underground, which means the game’s in-app purchases are free for users who download the game from the Amazon Appstore.
