Little Things Forever for iPhone and iPad review

Little Things Forever is an iPhone and iPad game where you must seek and find little items that are part of an artistic patchwork. As you find items, you collect puzzles pieces to solve the 9 different included puzzles.

Little Things Forever features thousands of little things that make up larger pieces of artwork. The biggest art piece is a star on the menu screen. When you start a game, you zoom into one of the items that makes up the star, which is also made up of hundreds of things.

The first thing you zoom into is a triceratops dinosaur and you are given a list of items you must find. You can zoom in and scroll if you wish and when you find an item, simply tap on it. It will start to sparkle to indicate that you found the right thing. If you're wrong, an X will flash on it.

Once you find all the things on the list, you will earn a puzzle piece then be given another list. Once you've earned all the puzzle pieces for the first puzzle, you get to solve it. You can move both the location and rotation of the pieces. And what are the puzzle pieces made of? You guessed it -- little things! This makes the puzzles a bit of a challenge to solve.

When you solve a puzzle, you unlock one of the things in the star and repeat the process.

One of the great features of Little Things Forever is multiple user support. This is rare to find in iOS games, so it's great to see the ability to have 4 different games saved at once.
