I SPY Treasure Hunt is a game that is based on a children’s photo-hunt book of the same title. In this game, players go on an adventure to a place called Smuggler’s Cove, a village rich in history about pirates. Players are given riddles and puzzles to solve. There are pieces from three mysterious treasure maps that must be assembled before players can look for the treasures that have been left behind by the pirates of long ago.
The locations in the game include an abandoned fort, a train station, an ice cream shop, a lighthouse, Shipwreck Shore, and a deserted island. The items to be located are written as a riddle; players must first determine what the riddle means in order to identify the items that the riddle is referring to. Players click on the objects on the scenes; when the correct object is clicked, the game plays an animation and a jingle. When all of the objects have been found, one of the objects will move to reveal another piece of the treasure map. Players click on the map piece until they collect all of it for assembly.
Once the maps are assembled, players can follow the clues that will lead them to the treasures. The game features an audio reading of the poem that contains the riddles.
