This is totally unexpected from Squeenix. I shall risk post padding and say instant buy! Hope this means they will port The Cherry Blossom Murders to iOS too.

Yeah, do it. It's a masterpiece.

Hey, I also read the novel "The Cherry Blossom Murders". Really cool.

And don't forget "Woman in White". Great for a port and another game in the victorian series.

A Hidden Objects game, sub-genre: detective / mystery.

In such games, the player must locate various objects which are hidden in a cluttered scene. Once each of the objects has been located, the player is allowed to progress to the next stage of the game. This may sound simple, but often there are many, many objects, with some being particularly small and difficult to pick out. Hidden object games definitely challenge the ability of a player to analyze, differentiate, and identify.
Today it is common that various puzzle elements are added (as mini games).

I have a bunch of the HOGs from mostly Big Fish - who I think has the best ones. Anyone seen or played this genre from Squeenix? I'll probably get it based on their overall reputation, but I didnt know they even did this genre.

In my opinion, Big fish games has the best HOGs for iOS (Awakenings, Flux Family, Empress of the Deep).
This one is originally called "Mystery Masterpiece: The Moonstone" By Freeze Tag, I played it on Mac a year ago, it's a good one, with nice music and interesting story but unfortunately doesn't bring anything new to the genre.
