Love Miss Fisher!
The game is not a hidden object or anything like that. There is a ton of reading, deductions, and my suggestion is to search every little thing for clues (or accessories). The conversations are easy to navigate through and the clue match-up toward the end was a bit tricky. I'm an avid BFG HOB player so the skill level for this was easy and at times boring (I would have enjoyed just reading it without all the tapping to progress the conversation). My five star rating comes from being a fan of the books and tv show. The characters are amazing! The mystery is spot on for the series. There is a cliffhanger, FYI, so if you are a compulsive shopper (like me) be prepared to end one game and then purchase another (it's not out yet so I'm good for now).
A must for Miss Fisher fans
This is a great little cozy mystery adventure game. I admit that I'm a fan of the Miss Fisher TV series, so I'm sure that added to my enjoyment.
The characters in the game are just like their counterparts in the series in looks, actions, and dialog. The style of the game is like a comic book, where the characters are painted into the scenes, and you have to read the dialog. But you can (and must) search each scene for clues.
The music in the game is similar to the series as well, which added to the ambiance.
The game crashed several times, but it really caused no problems, because it has an automatic SAVE feature. As soon as I restarted the game, it began in exactly the spot where it had crashed, and I was on my way again. I had about 3 hours of gameplay, which is a bargain for the price.
As you search for clues, you are also searching for pieces of Miss Fisher's glamorous wardrobe, which adds to the fun.
I highly recommend this for Miss Fisher fans, but also for anyone who enjoys cozy mysteries. I look forward to the next episode.
Love this Series
I'm a huge fan of Phryne Fisher. So when this game popped up, I bought it. And then proceeded to finish the game. The graphics are true to the story. The language is true to the characters. The searching for clues and deductions are done wonderfully. It's not clunky, but classy and elegant like Phryne. You can even be a little smart mouthy at times. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, is because Ive already completed it and am now eagerly awaiting the next chapter. I wish the game took a little lo get to play. It feels kinda short. It's definitely more of tv show feel than a book, although those are a quick read too, or maybe I just can't put them down.
