What's New in Version 1.1
Minor bug fixes.
Want to SCREEEEEEAMMMM!
I read the reviews, they were mixed so I tried the Lite free version. I really liked it. I am a hidden object, mystery story guru, so the change of pace with no hints or glimmer to lead you was a refreshing challenge. HOWEVER, when I got to the lab....Wait. Let me back up...I bought the HD version and started playing...I thought - not bad. Got to the lab level and became a little frustrated trying to put the "Bunsen burner" together - I realized later that the picture of the lab guy and the equipment was supposed to stay on the screen, but mine disappeared.. And then The game froze. Ok? I deleted and downloaded again. It started me at the beginning because it said I was not signed in to Game Center - I was. Ok, so I go at it again. I make sure I have my picture, get the set up solve the lab puzzle and it goes to that Noir black and freezes...again...
This is where I wanted to SCREEEEEAMMMM!
I am waiting for Bigfish to get back to me, I don't want my money back, I want an app that works! Hope you have better luck, it's a cool game for those who are not challenged anymore by hidden object mystery games.
Best part is the voice-overs
I love the voice-overs and the noir comic book style. Some of the puzzles are fun and intuitive, while others (like creating the distillation device) leave you clueless and you have to google a walk through to figure out what to do... I keep collecting bullets for hints but the hints are only available for the easy parts like for hidden objects, but not for the hard parts where you have no idea what you're supposed to do. Same with the magnifying glass. Basically you just have to click on everything until you randomly find something that lets you know what to do next. Luckily there is no penalty for over clicking.
The great voice-overs and noir feel make it worth it though. I read the second version doesn't have voice-overs so I definitely will not be purchasing that...
No hand holding
The game has a solid story and the puzzles were not too easy, not too hard, but you do need to figure out what needs to be done... You are a detective after all. There is a "task" button that will give you an idea what to do, but this game will not hold your hand and take you through the puzzle. The hints are plentiful if you need them, and Big Fish Games forum is great for tips and walkthroughs. This game is well worth the price and will take you a couple of hours to complete. If you notice, a lot of the negative reviews have to do with not knowing what to do. For me, that is half the fun. The HOG are not hateful, some puzzles are familiar, a couple are new, the noir vibe was cool and game appropriate.
