Tag and Flag – Transform Photos into Hide-and-Seek Games with Friends

Kuwait City, Kuwait – Any photo becomes a challenging puzzle to share with family and friends in Tag & Flag, a new hidden-object game available for iPhone and iPad. Designed to be played one-or-one or in groups, Tag & Flag is now available for download through the iTunes App Store in the Games category.

“We all love sharing pictures with friends and family,” said Mohammed Alothman, creator of the game. “Tag & Flag adds a hidden-object game that makes those photos even more fun and exciting.”

Turning photos into hide-and-seek games begins with a simple invitation. Players quickly search for friends using a Tag & Flag username, an email address, or Facebook/Twitter name and invite them to play the game. Players also have the option of starting games with random Tag & Flag players online so there is always someone ready to play.

Using a picture from their photo album or a fresh snapshot taken through Tag & Flag, players “tag” objects in the image that they want their friends to find. Players can tag as many as five objects by simply tapping and positioning a red circle over them. A player drags to expand or shrink the tagging circle to accommodate objects of varying sizes (and make finding them easier or harder!) For each tagged object, the player adds a description that will serve as a tantalizing clue for seekers.

The player sends the tagged photo to seekers who race to “flag” the hidden objects before the timer runs out. Each wrong tap brings a time penalty while a correct flag earns a coin and gets the seeker closer to winning the game.

Stumped players can spend Tag & Flag coins to buy matches to burn out parts of the image that don’t contain tags or magnets to draw a player toward a tag. Those who need more coins can easily obtain them through in-app purchase. Players can even earn bonus coins to use to solve more puzzles by upgrading to the full version of the app.

Tag & Flag players can enjoy a one-on-one game or add to the fast-paced fun by playing with a group of family and friends. The first player in the group to correctly flag the image wins and is next to tag a photo.

To start playing quickly, a helpful tutorial guides each new player through the highlights of the game. Plus, players will never miss a turn with an optional notification feature.

“Most of us have albums full of photos waiting to be shared,” said Alothman. “Don’t just share them with family and friends, play with them too. Tag & Flag is the most fun you can have with your photos!”
