Nightmares from the Deep 3: Davy Jones is a hidden object game developed and published by Artifex Mundi for PC, iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, Linux and Mac.
The game is the third and final entry in the Nightmares from the Deep trilogy.
Sara Black discovers the evidence she needs to prove that the legend of Davy Jones was in fact historical fact. After Sara collects her evidence she calls a press conference to reveal it to the world.
Davy shows up to the museum and kidnaps both Sara and her daughter, Cory. The pair try and escape Davy's grasp but end up being forced to walk the plank. Right before Sara is about to plunge into the ocean Cory saves her by signing a dark pact with Davy, putting her life in his hands.
Sara now ends up on Davy's island and must find a way to cancel this dark pact and save Cory.
The gameplay in Nightmares from the Deep 3: Davy Jones is very similar to that of its predecessors. Players are once again put in the role of Sara Black as she tries to save her daughter.
The game is presented in a series of single screens that make up each of the games scenes. Each of these scenes has objects or areas that can be picked up or interacted with.
There is an inventory in which items are kept. These items are for solving the various puzzles scattered throughout the game.
Hidden Object Scenes
There are various hidden object scenes which can be found and played. In these scenes players are given a scene with a list of words, object outlines, or even images of the objects themselves. All of these items must be found within the scene to collect the useful item at the end. Some of the items can only be found by moving other objects or combining them to create or reveal the necessary item.
Each of the game's hidden object scenes can be turned into a game of Mahjong Solitaire instead. Players can then solve these puzzles which will forgo the hidden object scene. These will still award the item at the end.
On top of the various hidden object scenes there are many puzzles to solve. These are the same puzzle types that many hidden object games use such as slider puzzles or jigsaw style puzzles. Completing these puzzles almost always rewards the player with a useful inventory item.
