What's good: Sprill: The Mystery of Bermuda Triangle takes you on an underwater adventure where you are tasked to search for items in the classic hidden object game style. The story starts when Sprill, a brave little fox, is abducted by strange green aliens who takes him to the depths of the ocean and tells him to find objects leading up to the Pearl of Poseidon - an invaluable jewel that the has been lost for years in the waters and which is needed by the foreign planet for survival. Left with no choice, you have to help the brave character traverse various sunken locations (wreckages of ships, planes, and even an alien spacecraft) in search of all the items on the list. These things are very cleverly hidden and camouflaged into highly detailed surroundings, so a sharp eye and a precise touch are needed to successfully pick out what needs to be found amidst all the clutter. Each place allows for a few hints in case you really need help - which you probably will at some point! Don't rely on these though, and never dilly dally or tap randomly in the hopes of accidentally clicking the right thing or you'll lose a lot of the precious few minutes allotted for your quest. If it proves a bit difficult at first, Alawar Entertainment has thoughtfully allowed for orientation switching and of course screen resizing so you can get right up close and discover even the smallest concealments. The game is not only fun, the clash of colors and randomly stashed trinkets in meticulously designed rooms makes for a real visual treat, too. Needless to say, replay value is extremely high, guaranteeing countless hours of fun and entertainment for gamers of all types and ages. In other words, this title is a real must-buy at just $2.99!

Suggestions for improvement: Sometimes objects that are near (or at) the edge of the screen no longer respond to taps when the orientation is changed, so we are looking forward to an update that hopefully gets this issue fixed. Puzzles or quick mini-games in between a few levels help break the monotony, too.
