How to Play the Park Ranger Games
As with the other games in the Vacation Adventures series. Park Ranger 7 focusses on hidden object games interspersed with mini games and puzzles. And as such has no story or adventure elements.
Hidden Object Games
There are 3 parts to the hidden object games. Find all of the items in the list. Including items in red – which mean they are hidden behind or in other items, so some interaction is required to seek them out. You’ve also to find random items that need to be put in the recycling bin – these are not specified so you’ll need to be on the lookout for trash! And finally collect the wildlife silhouettes shown in the left-hand corner of the scene.
Earn a big bonus of coins by being eagle-eyed and finding all the list items without using the hint button. And the more trash items and wildlife silhouettes you find the better the star rating you’ll get, as well as more bonus coins.
Other features of this game include a megahint, which will show all the available items in a scene.
You can also Replay each hidden object game to achieve a better star rating.
After each hidden item game, you get a mini game. These games range from spot the difference, word search or find matching pairs. To jigsaw puzzles and rotating tiles to make a complete picture. You can Skip these games, if you wish – once the skip button has charged up.
Use the coins you’ve earned to buy items from the shop. And fill up your souvenir cabinet.
As with all of the games in the Vacation Adventures series, Park Ranger 7 involves straight-forward hidden object scenes and mini games, no filler! And along with the relaxing soundtrack and beautifully depicted scenes. This is a top HO game.
There’s plenty to do within each HO game. And well-hidden enough to challenge your seek-and-find skills. Without the need or distraction of an adventure story!
