Short but novel detective puzzle, film noir style
I share the sentiment of many reviewers that there should be more detective/mystery games available on the App Store. I've found a few that are enjoyable: these include Detective Grimoire, The Trace, The Detail, Layton Brothers and Murder Files. Unfortunately, they are few and far between.
I was pleased to find this game, although I might have been less generous with this rating if it had more competition. However, I liked the edgy graphics, and I enjoyed searching for clues, using my fingerprint kit, and piecing together the crime. True, this is rather short, and much of the solution is simply given to you once you have found all of the key hints. I still recommend giving this a go.
Very short game and some players may benefit from a "how to" on the controls (tap at the bottom of your screen to exit a zoom in mode and on left or right to turn in rooms when moving, tap on, behind things you want to examine) but in the real world that's not how detective work is... You don't have a guide book. So I didn't mind figuring it out myself and felt it added to the experience.
I loved the artistic style, soundtrack and how the clues fit together. Wished this game was longer!
1. I can't find the pin.
2. No auto save
Otherwise great app.
