Play OverviewPlay Overview

Hidden in Plain Sight (2014) is a unique battle that requires keen observation rather than quick reflexes. Up to four players fight to protect or assassinate the king, catch a thief or race across the screen without being stopped. The twist is that you each have numerous computer-controlled doppelgängers. You have to pay careful attention to how each one moves and behaves to try to spot (and then stop) the human players. Not only does this create knife-edge battles fraught with excitement, but it requires very different skills from other competitive video games.

Like family-favourite board games, setting aside an hour or two to play this together is not only a lot of fun but an enjoyable way to relax. The quick rounds allow for time to catch up with each other and pass around the snacks. Repeatedly playing the same mode leads to the development of more subtle tactics. The simple premise of each of the five games leads to surprising depths as players try to outsmart each other.
