Where is the sequel?!
This game was recommended to me by my boyfriend after he noticed it on Apps Gone Free. He knows I love a good mystery game so he thought it'd be a win. I was a little more reluctant. I've only ever truly enjoyed one mobile game (A Dark Room for those wondering) so I wasn't sold on this one yet. But upon starting up the app and seeing how incredibly detailed it was, my heart began to sway.
You play as Detective Grimoire investigating a murder at a quite unusual tourist attraction. You meet several quirky characters all voiced exceptionally well. The game also features a few mini games and you are investigating and piecing clues together. It didn't feel like I was being led to a conclusion... It felt as if I was coming to it myself.
The game's overall artistic style works wonderfully with its dark humor. I wish I had the opportunity to play a longer version on a different platform (PC, console, etc.) but I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who likes an old fashioned mystery with a twist. This will certainly inspire the detective in you.
Overall Great Game
There are some things I wish they would've added one of them being more puzzles I think there were only two "puzzles" in the game and they extremely easy. But the game was great without them and I wouldn't of felt like there was something lacking if they hadn't put any puzzles in at all. I loved the art of the characters and the overall simplicity of the game. It wasn't very hard to go through the challenges and to find out the killer in the game but the gameplay was so fun that the simplicity was sort of enjoyed its not the game that your gonna be scratching your head over. I really liked the game and I would definitely recommend it.
Everything in this game is excellent: game play, graphics, animations, sounds, voices, music and story.
And I was able to deduce for myself who the killer was, even before reaching the sequence in the game where the clues start to come together.
The game reminded me of Monkey Island or the Sam and Max adventures: humorous dialogs and great care in every detail. It is extremely easy to play the game on iOS (I played on an iPhone 5S).
I definitely recommend this game to everyone who enjoys "point and click" adventures.
And congratulations to the developers for such an excellent piece of art. 👍👍👍
