Some forms of play are timeless. Running around with a stick pretending to be in the army. Chasing each other in games of tag. And, of course, hide and seek. The games in this list offer digital ways to play hide and seek with a variety of different twists.Hide In A Crowd:
There are games like Spy Party
, Thief Town
, Hidden in Plain Sight
, that let you play as a range of characters and then challenge another player to find you amongst a computer-controlled crowd, from what way you move and interact. The Fruit game
in Game and Wario
on Wii U has the same mechanics, with one person trying to steal fruit without the other players working out who they are. Wii Party
offers hiding in its Spot the Sneak mode where one player has a secret advantage in the mini-games that the other players have to spot. Another great example is Wii U Party
, Lost and Found Square mode
. One player stands in a crowd of identical people and uses the Wii U gamepad to look around and describe their location to other players, who use the TV to explore and find them. At the end, you see a map of where the players had run. Prop Hunt:
There are games with "Prop Hunt" modes where you can change into the items in the world to hide. Fortnite
has a great Prop Hunt mode, as does Minecraft. Then there are games like Witch It
designed around this idea of transforming into normal items and hiding in a game world. Separate Screens:
There games like Mario Chase and Luigi's Ghosthouse in Nintendoland
, or Pac-Man Vs
where one person has their own screen while the others team up to hunt for them use the main TV screen. Or games you play online where everyone has their own screen and try to hide from a particular character like in Secret Neighbor
is a twist on this, where you share the same screen and try to shoot each other, but your characters are invisible.Hidden Objects:
Or there are hidden object games where the computer hides things that you have to find, like Hidden Folks
and Hidden Through Time
. There's a hidden object mode in Mario Odyssey
where you hunt online player's hidden balloons. A twist on this is Here Kitty
where one person hides a phone that then makes cat noises until the seeker has found it.Open World Hiding:
You can use pretty much any open-world game to make your own hiding fun. You can hide in Minecraft
(having turned nameplates off), sneak around on public transport in
or simply count to 10 while visitors hide in Animal Crossing New Horizons
