Beginner’s Guide to The Secret Society

The most intimidating part about The Secret Society is that it doesn’t hold back when it comes to giving its players a sense of challenge in all of the puzzles they create. However, it’s important to note that puzzle games are supposed to be difficult so that players can fully test out their game knowledge and skills at solving them. Enjoy what The Secret Society has to offer alongside its mystery-based story that, together will keep you entertained for ages while playing the game!

Understanding The Basics of The Secret Society

Hidden object games are generally straightforward in terms of completing objectives. However, even simple instructions can be made to be extra challenging if the developers want to add a little more spice in the mix. Beginners usually have a hard time solving these puzzles because they get rattled about what they need to be prioritizing in the game. Here’s some basic tips that will help you conquer The Secret Society and progress further into the story to enjoy the game as a whole.

  1. Familiarize Yourself with the List

The list contains all the items you’ll need to find during a hidden object game. The hardest part about The Secret Society’s version of the list is that it includes culturally specific items that might sound literally foreign to some of the game’s players. The game is set all around the world, so there’s bound to be a few items you’ve never heard of, and so will prove to be difficult to find. If this happens, feel free to look up what the item looks like, and don’t be ashamed to do so.

  1. Finding the Items on the List

Don’t expect the items on the list to be easily found. After all, the entire point of the game is to hide these items from you as cheekily as possible. Don’t try to look for items where you’d expect them to be. In fact, try the opposite of what you originally thought, and you’d be surprised at where the developers creatively place the items just to mess with you. The only rule they follow when hiding an item is that the item needs to be in a place where the players can see it – whether it’s the whole item or just a part of it.

  1. The Time Limit and Penalties

You’d think this game was easy if you just randomly tapped every corner of the photo until you found all the items on the list by luck. Making a mistake more than three times will cause your timer to be reduced by 10 seconds on the first set, 15 seconds on the second set, and so on. Your time limit prevents you from taking your sweet time casually searching around the photo for your items. Of course, the time limit also serves to discourage you from randomly tapping the photo. Once your timer runs out, you will lose the round and all the items you won with it.

What’s So Unique About The Secret Society?

The Secret Society isn’t like your other hidden object games. The amount of features, game modes, and even the accompanying story separate it from standard puzzle games in general.

Here’s the different things that make The Secret Society unique from other games in the same genre as this one.

The Mystery Themed Storyline

No game is as engaging if a story wasn’t included with it. Following the story through the questline gives players a definite goal on what they should be achieving. Complete different stages to unlock more quests and find the answers you’ve been trying to look for. Ultimately, you’ll be able to reach the game’s conclusion when you play enough games and get all the answers you were looking for.

Mini Games and Game Modes

While hidden object game mode is pretty standard, you’ll find puzzles extremely difficult to solve when trying out silhouette mode, night mode, or other game modes. These hurdles make locating items that much more of a challenge. There are also mini games such as the “Card Matcher” and “Pipeline” that aim to add a little variety to your gameplay if ever you need a break from the frustration of the original hidden object mode.

Item Collections

The game also introduces item sets, which you can collect by solving puzzles. Some items have lower chances to drop when you finish a puzzle so don’t expect to complete them after just one attempt on the stage. Some other items – like boosters and tools – are also available to help you progress through the game. Once you get to a higher level, you’ll be actively trying to farm items to complete item sets. You can even combine them into something more useful to use later in the game.

Energy Systems and Recovery

Energy systems are popular in most mobile games as a means to limit the amount of times a player can attempt puzzles in one day. You’ll need to wait for a certain amount of time for your entire energy bar to be filled up. You won’t be able to attempt any more puzzles once your energy bar drops to a certain point.
