Customer Reviews

great, but too short!

Anyone who knows me knows I'm picky in my reviews. I've played the game and made the first purchase, and I must say the game is outstanding for anyone truly interested in real investigating and deductions. There's no punishment system for novices, making it appealing for all levels, yet it doesn't take away from thrill of being correct the first go. I've been waiting for a great game like this that follows real investigative strategy, and does present a decent challenge. (I'm a little more advanced in my deductive powers) However, that said, there is one major complaint I have for the game. ITS WAY TOO SHORT! The in app purchase prices aren't bad, but they are very un-rewarding in the few cases they unlock. For us salty dogs, we'll go through a little quicker than the rest, especially. PLEASE MAKE MORE. There's not much replay value once you've solved a case, so there needs to be more content to keep it rewarding. Plus, the game is so good I son't want it end! If you can do that, you can count on my continued patronage, which I'm sure is a nice element for a developer's expenses. Your followers are sure to rise if you do, and the game will gain a far greater following. Besides, we both know it's highly improbable that a team making a game like this wouldn't want to continue it. I know it will end someday, but I think that day is quite far from now :) 5 stars when you continue in rewarding fashion for your customers.

Potentially Perfect

I love this game and the professor Layton series. I am a dedicated player, even once spending two years on a riddle until I figured it out ( see professor Layton and the mysterious village, the last riddle before you find the golden apple) this game is the reincarnation of those games, but with an exciting twist. The catch? The game crashes. A lot. If you put the game down for a while, it tends to correct itself, but I am currently stuck on a level where it will not. Every time I press the buzzer in mr. Pig's office, my game crashes. I would like to see that fixed. Other than that, this game is great for Sherlock Holmes fanatics and other crime fiction lovers. PLAY THE GAME! Also, for those of you that hate it, I deduct that most of you are guys by your dumb names, like razorsharp and ladiesman, and all of us intelligent females know that some of you guys are one track I love or I hate kind of people, who sometimes need to listen once and a while to get the picture. Also, how is an axe lodged in someone's skull childish. And, by the way, for the guy that only played for 15 minutes, NEVER RELY ON THE FIRST LEVEL FOR ANYTHING. It's all dialogue, but the rest are intense, like that guy who was set on fire, but you wouldn't know because you only played for 15 MINUTES!😱. Anyway...

THERE IS A HUGE CRASHING BUG ON MY IPOD AND I WOULD LIKE IT FIXED PLEASE. It makes it impossible to play the game because it crashes at the same time every time.

Focus on the 5

This game deserves 5 stars because it is all that professor layton is with its own little twist. Notice that I isn't "Professor Layton" it is "The Mystery Room" they may have the same style and familiarity with the professor, but it is obvious that this game is crime solving. When it comes down to it, this game is very high quality for a "layton"-esq style game. Sure I wish they had puzzles, but then it probably would take up way too much space on the device. Also, the criminals may seem obvious, but that is to allow a broader variety of consumers the chance to play and enjoy the game. This is not an action game it is crime solving which of course means reading. Obviously if a reviewer gave this 1 star it is manly because they were expecting RPG and did not bother to read the details. Also if the people who complained about the so called "misspelling" actually read the characters speech, they'd realize those are different types of ACCENTS! Come on guys this is in London. There are plenty of slangs and styles of speech. Level 5 is a high quality gaming program, and for them to finally make an app game is a good achievement for them. I hope they can make a professor layton one soon, hopefully with some puzzles!
