Multiplayer: good, not great

S. Gresham

So glad multiplayer has finally arrived! Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to actually work as it's described in the expanded rules overview. Sometimes the game will take upwards of 3 minutes to transition from one player's turn to the next, seemingly freezing in an untimed limbo state. Occasionally, I've been told an opponent can show a card after a suggestion, but never get to see the card! The system hangs for a few minutes, then proceeds through the remaining opponents without displaying any cards, and without any updates to the clue sheet. The promise of being able to take a stab at the solution for points when another player reaches the correct solution first is seemingly false. The game simply reveals the solution, and awards an automatic 50 points without any prompt. Scoring is also a bit...lame, frankly. A flat 150 points for winning either a 3 or 6 player game? Surely beating 5 opponents should be worth a bit more than beating 2.

Fix the timers, make sure cards are always displayed, and tweak the final scoring mechanism, and you'll have a nearly perfect multiplayer experience. Some kind of chat system (even just a selection of emojis as used in The Game of Life) would add to the multiplayer experience, but isn't ultimately a necessary/important feature.

Developer Response

Hello, we're not sure why your device is not picking up the latest version of the game - this can only be down to Apple or maybe an issue with some hardware on your device? We're currently on version 1.3.2 with a 1.3.3 update arriving soon pending Apple approval. This has some memory optimisations in it which might resolve your crashing. Could you send us some details to contactus@marmalademail.com please? Perhaps it's the region set on your phone or the region of your apple account?

Good game overall

The single player game is very enjoyable, although like some other reviewers have already pointed out, it would be a good idea to roll dice for the starting icon in a single-player game, as frequently you can end up doing all of the work for the AI and losing by round 3 due to bad luck. It’s also really unrealistic that the AI always guesses correctly, even in cases where they could not have eliminated a suspect, weapon, or room.

The multiplayer is still a bit buggy (and I agree that the prizes for winning seem meager), but other people have gone into that in much greater detail than I need to.

My main purpose in writing this review is to let the developers know that these latest updates completely obliterated my tokens, my game cards, my score and my ranking. That’s not cool, folks. I’m sure you’re fully aware how much time your players invest in this. To have a lot of work wiped out due to an update is genuinely discouraging.

Finally! Where have you been!

EDIT: I shaved off a star because the multi-player, which came out a month ago, is really slow and wonky. It seems like there’s a 50/50 chance the app will freeze whenever I play multi-player; at first I thought it was just slow players, but it lagged repeatedly at the same moments in the game. The single-player version remains fantastic, however (but they need to add some sound effects to some of the rooms in the Castle Vampire version).

Yes! A proper app that lets me play Clue whenever I want to! I love to interface, the graphics are great, and the note-taking functions are superb. Really smooth, handsome game! I play with the music off and the sound effects on, and it's great.

If I could shave half a star off of this review, I would for one reason: the game allows you to purchase additional characters, but for some reason you can't play a "challenging" version of the game with all eleven suspects; it only allows six suspects for every game. I think that would be fun, as well as an update like the old "Master Detective" version of the same game. Also, some more "skins" or alternate versions of the board, please!

Overall, good stuff, I'm really glad it's finally here and I'm glad I can exercise my brain with some six-player games, be they with actual human beings or AI.
