They're yellow, they're adorable and they want to play a game with you. Not so much an escape-the-room, this is a game for escaping into cute x 10, where the mood lifting chirp of a found chick is enough to brighten oodles of ho-hum weekdays. Just stroll onto the playground and join Yuri's Chick Hide and Seek 7 field day, where these downy puffs of personality are nestled into every possible hiding spot waiting to be discovered by you.
The goal of the game is to find all ten chicks then "escape" the playground by finding the exit. Play by searching each scene for useful items, hints and chicks, clicking anywhere a baby bird might be able to hide and solving a few puzzles to uncover those chicks too shy to be found in ordinary spots. Because it's more involved than the previous hide and seek, this installment feels more fleshed out and satisfying although it's still just as easy.
The only challenge—as well as the biggest annoyance—comes from the lack of a changing cursor. The park setting is varied enough yet has few distinctive areas. Several spots don't immediately elicit an "Ooo! I should look more closely there" response. So, instead, you'll have to try clicking on many nooks and corners no matter how non-suspicious they may be, risking the disappointment of a fruitless click. That's a big drawback for those who abhor any level of pixel hunt. Still, such angst is mitigated by the sweet expression of adorableness on each tiny yellow peep. The fun of discovery, the general ease of gameplay and the rewarding cuteness provide all the reason needed to recommend Chick Hide and Seek 7 for your weekday escape.
