Tips and notes
This is a digitized version of an older set of “spot the difference” cartoons.
The originals were printed. As such, the cartoons have artifacts that may differ between the two images, but do not count as such for the game.
Avoid the most trivial and minor differences such as minor spots of color. They are likely artifacts from the printing process.
Only click when you’re sure you spotted a difference. If you click on areas where there is no difference you lose 5 seconds off your remaining time.
The game is suited for players who like find the difference games.
