Different and great game

Great to see a new game from Absolutist! A long time waiting! I check weekly as you’ve been a nice alternative to big fish games but it’s been several months since you’ve added a game of this type. Thank you kindly! I love the puzzle adventure games with ho scenes added here and there but not the straight ho games so much. They’re a dime a dozen and boring. This was a perfect mix of adventure, puzzles, ho scenes with a who done it story line! I really enjoyed this! There were some glitches such as some mini games did not respond and better directions needed on some but a good mix of easy and more difficult. The ho scenes were nice, also not easy but not overly difficult. They were all of the morphing object and straight forward finds so maybe more variation in your next installment? Graphics were excellent! Transporting map marked clearly. It was sometimes difficult to know what was expected. At times there was no instruction or dialog when opening a window leaving me to guess at possible solutions. Maybe that was the intent? It was usually something that was not ready to be solved yet but could be later in the game. Overall I was very entertained and drawn back to this game any opportunity I could find in my day. Finished in 2 days but the game length was long! A great buy! I highly recommend it! Thank you Absolutist and I truly hope you start adding this genre game more often again! Great job!

Great Concept: Poor Execution

This would have been an automatic 5 stars for me due to the variety of sleuth-type puzzles: finding shoe prints & fingerprints, taking in-game photos, lab work (which I did not understand but was able to succeed on most). Music could be changed in game once selections were found in game. Map is available and shows areas not completed, completed, and action available. My kind of game, for sure.

What really annoyed me enough to post a lukewarm review, however, was the maze puzzle. Despite having to hit an area precisely throughout the game for the controls to work, this puzzle took the prize in that a few essential springs were NOT visible or accessible on the iPad. Saw walkthrough to learn that a blue & purple spring does not appear for me in the game. AARRGH! Absolutely hate skipping such puzzles since I enjoy them.

Perhaps the game is better developed for the PC.

Really? All the names taken?

So bad

Can’t skip lame tutorial. There is no map. Hint just points at things, but doesn’t tell you why. I’m very, very annoyed by this game, especially since this developer sometimes produces good quality games. My clue on how bad this was should have been that you can’t play it before purchasing. Don’t buy this game.

Developer Response

Hello, thank you for the feedback. We are so sorry that the game upsets you. We make every effort to create a game that will appeal to all players. In fact there is map in the game, you just have to go a little bit further through the plot to unlock it. Hints are there to slightly guide you, but they won't solve all the mysteries for you, because it's no fun then. We hope that you will give this game a second chance.
