Big City Adventure: Vancouver Big City Adventure: Vancouver is the fourth entry in a series of hidden object games using a famous city as the main theme. Most of the time, the objective is to find and click on all the items listed at the bottom of the screen, on tourist locations filled with assorted paraphernalia scattered around the scenery. List entries in blue can only be collected after opening a special window showing an alternative angle of the scene. A time limit can be turned on at the start for extra challenge.

Besides the required items, a series of coins can also be found around each scene. They are tokens for the hint and bonus points system, and are stored in stacks at the bottom-right corner to be used at the player's discretion. The ? coin highlights the position of one of the required objects, the time coin adds a couple of minutes to the clock, the ?? coin reveals the location of several hidden objects at once, the bonus coin gives extra points and the skip coin is used to skip a mini-game.

Mini-games appear on a separate screens between each location. They are implementations of well-known classic games and concepts, like a tile-matching game, a Pipe Dream clone with twisted bobsled tracks, a word search puzzle, a Mastermind variant and other similar challenges. [source:mobygames]
