Office Chaos - hidden objects game

This is my first html5 game made with javascript. Usually I make games in flash, but lack of flash support across browsers forced to me learn new language. The hardest part was dealing with the fact that canvas turns everything into one big picture making object tracking that much more difficult. Needless to say I am extremely proud of the game even though it's short and simple, especially compared to some great stuff posted here. I made two games using the same code but just inserting different pictures into it. The game is size responsive and available on mobile as well since it's just javascript. It's not supported however by old browser versions such ie8 for example. Feedback will be greatly appreciated. 

First game - Messy House

These were really fun. I like this kind of game. A little sound would add a big difference.

For the Messy house game, I would say to add a black bar at the top of the screen as well, if you have one at the bottom. Just because it felt like it had been cut off when I started looking for things :unsure: maybe that's just me.

Thanks for the feedback. 

Adding music is something a few people mentioned to me actually. I definitely will add some to the future games. These two are just too short and I consider them little demo games to test my html5 abilities. 

As for the black bar at the top, I understand what you're saying. The eye usually gravitates towards the lower part of the screen when you play a game reserving the upper part for the sky or the place where a character's health is listed, for example. I don't think adding the bar here will make it appear less cut off. I think it's the picture itself that needs to be adjusted. I will take that into consideration when I draw the next one.

It wasn't clear to me at first that the time (3 min) is given to me for all 3 rounds (not for one). Secondly, the round with outlines was much more difficult for me than that with words.
