Pixel hunting is not my favorite gameplay type. However the 10 Gnomes series is very well made. The ambient sound and black and white photo background create a surreal feeling that makes you believe Gnomes could really exist and hide all around us. These games make you look at world with different eyes, letting player discover the world from a different perspective and seeing how various human made items, mostly abandoned ones could be used by beings of different (spatial) dimensions. My baseline score for all 10 Gnomes games is 7/10, for great artistic design and rather unique design, but only a medium level of gameplay. I myself have found all the gnomes in all these games, but usually just about 7 or 8 from the first try.

This episode features a very interesting street. I liked the navigation in this one, 5 gnomes and 1 troll on left side, 5 gnomes and 1 troll on right side. I will a add a point to this episode of my baseline 10 Gnomes rating, making it 8/10.

Overall, this was not a bad game. Although I didn't know what I was looking for initially, it became pretty obvious once I found the first gnome. Knowing where to click was also not a problem because the mouse icon changed when I found a spot to click.

However, I do feel like there needs to be a story behind the reason you're looking for gnomes (and trolls). With the music and pictures you used, I couldn't help but feel that there had to be some reason I needed to find every gnome (and in a limited amount of time).

On a side note, how many trolls are there? And is that number consistent across the other versions of this game that you made?

I couldn't find a single gnome and i found the image way too hard to navigate around, everything looked similar and i didn't know what the gnomes looked like. Good idea but this isn't done well,
