F.A.C.E.S. is a hidden object adventure game that follows a generic thriller storyline. The setting takes place in a fictitious facility, where the main protagonist is trapped as a test subject. The objective of the game is to traverse the enigmatic maze. Players will have to find various objects disguised as clues in every stage to progress. Each stage is separated by various chapters. The chapter titles are successively titled as “FACES,” “Jailbreak,” “Consultation Center,” “New Floors,” “Way Out,” and “Final Stretch.” Each of these chapter titles represent a different virtual scenario within the squalid facility representing its own difficulty level. Each scenario is illustrated vividly with a graphic style quite similar to spooky Tim Burton’s animations.
F.A.C.E.S. follows a straightforward storyline. Like most hidden object adventure games, the player can utilize certain obtained items in the inventory both as reference or a tool. The cursor automatically changes whenever it is pointed to a veiled crucial area within the static scenario. The player can investigate a certain area if the cursor changes into an eyeball. The player can pick up certain objects if the cursor changes into a hand when pointed at a certain area. The game also has a hint and file menu that will allow players to review clues and navigate throughout the gameplay development.
F.A.C.E.S. has a few interesting features that includes the following:
• Chilling sound sequence
• Integrated Strategy Guide
• Colorful graphics
• Concept artworks
