Inside Mac Games has posted a review of the hidden-object adventure Laura Jones and the Gates of Good and Evil from NevoSoft. In the game, you help Laura Jones unravel the ancient mystery around a strange talisman. Here's an excerpt from the review:

Rather than get into an exegesis of the flimsy story-line, I'll plunge right into decoding the gameplay. The core of this game, as you may have guessed, is finding a bunch of stuff on a crowded screen. This is certainly nothing we haven't all seen before, and if you have ever played one of these games before, you'll quickly get the hang of it. In fact, even if you haven't, you'll still find it very easy to grasp. The twist to this premise is that in many instances you must find them in a certain sequence, which will in turn cause elements on the screen to move or disappear, allowing you to uncover more hidden objects, and so on. For example, in one segment, you have to hunt around to find a combination to a safe, and then you open the safe, which tells you to find some more objects, and so on. So, in effect, the vertical X and the horizontal Y axes you're used to exploring is enhanced by the Z axis that goes "deeper" into the screen. I'm not saying it's 3-D, mind you, just that some depth is added to the usual hidden object setup.
