Spot-the-difference games are a dime a dozen, but in the right hands they can be a work of art. Ronnie Pence's Evoke provides a surreal and artistic twist to the genre with ten different "planets" that offer dreamy mirror worlds in a state of subtle disarray. Luckily, you are there to bring balance back to the cosmos with the click of your mouse.
Each world gives you seven differences to find, with the option of skipping to the next once you've found four. Helpfully, there's a cursor opposite the screen that mirrors your movements, and the soothing ambient soundtrack by CBREEZ will make you want to put your feet up and lean back in your chair. Don't lean back too far! The game screen is too small at times and you may have to do some squinting to pick out the more subtle misplacements. While a "mute" and "skip level" button occasionally threaten to jar you awake from an otherwise perfect dream, the overall tone, artwork, and music make Evoke casual gameplay with a capital "C."
