[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - After much anticipation, App developer Big Ideas Digital is proud to announce the iPhone and iPad 2.0 release of Say What You See: The Collection(TM).

What's even better is that, for a limited time only, it won't even cost you a penny to try, as Big Ideas are making it a free download.
The Say What You See(TM) franchise is a fresh take on the hidden object genre, challenging players to pick out the popular bands, movies and TV shows hidden in intricately detailed, hand-painted scenes. Each scene or (iCanvas) has a unique theme, and is created by a renowned artist.
The all-new 2.0 version of the app contains a host of much-demanded new features, including a built-in hints system and a whole new look. We've even got a new mascot, Rebus, a guy with an eye for puzzling fun.
To celebrate the new version of the app, we're also releasing a new canvas, Arcade Classics, designed by a guest artist, Gary Lucken, better known to his fans as Army of Trolls. Gary specializes in pixelart reminiscent of retro arcade games, and gamers are sure to go nuts for his frankly awesome take on the Say What You See concept.
