The main goal of Hidden Chronicles is to find objects in several Scenes and earn Trophies for them. The faster and more accurate the player is, the higher is his score. There is also a little timer in the right upper corner and if he continuously finds objects (without clicking on wrong things) before the timer ends it will multiply the base score by the number given under the timer (7 is the highest so far). Every time he clicks on a wrong place the combo-count will start again.


There are two kinds of currency in Hidden Chronicles: Estate Coins and Estate Cash. Coins are the main currency, but Cash remains the only way to fully oopen all options. They are used to Explore more land on the Estate, unlock new Scenes and buying things from the Marketplace.


Trophies can be earned by playing Scenes several times and earn points for being fast and accurate in finding the hidden objects. Acquiring trophies allows you to explore more regions of your property.
