The intelligent design of the gameplay means that practically anyone can enjoy the game right from the beginning. To control your character, you just have to use the joystick on the left side of the screen. It doesn't matter which role you play during the round; this is the one and only control you have to worry about.
Your mission in Hide 'N Seek! is to either hide or capture other players who are trying to hide. To do this, you have a limited amount of time available. If you're hiding and manage to survive without being captured before the time runs out, you'll win. However, if you're looking for others and don't manage to find at least four players before the time runs out, you'll lose. One thing that makes this game even more interesting is that players who have been captured can be saved by those who are still free.
To top it all off, throughout each round you can earn coins, which you can use later on to unlock new skins for your character.
