As the saying goes, it's the little things that matter. The same goes for Matthew Hall's acclaimed hidden object game for iPad, Little Things, which is about to give rise to a huge thing by the end of the month. The huge thing in question is the sequel to Little Things, Little Things Forever. The added word may be seen as nothing more than a cute touch, but it actually hints at the probability of playing the game endlessly. Matthew describes Little Things Forever as "built to last," referring to the future updates he has in store that will add new playable content to the game. As shown in the fascinating trailer below, Little Things Forever maintains the little-things-in-big-things setup of the original. In the game, you're required to search for specified objects within a patchwork of various items, ranging from safety pins to elephants. That every puzzling patchwork in Little Things Forever (as in Little Things) is in the distinct shape of something, like a camera or a rhinoceros, adds to the unique appeal of the game. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. As mentioned, Little Things Forever is scheduled for release in the App Store on May 31. Like Little Things, Little Things Forever is priced at $2.99. But unlike its iPad-only predecessor, it's designed with Retina graphics for both iPhone and iPad. Contrary to what you might be expecting, even little things need to be crisp and shiny on your iDevice. We'll have a full review of the game here on AppAdvice as soon as it's out. Until then, why not brush up on your little-thing spotting with the original Little Things?
