DD Question

[Post New]by erigby on Jul 2, 11 12:39 AM
I bought Sherlock Holmes Lost Cases 2 some time ago, and the DD just posted, Sherlock Holmes Lost Cases of 221B Baker Street, looks almost identical.

Are they the same game? If they are, is #1 any good and what title should I look under for this game? Why do devs do this? Makes no sense.


ETA:

It also doesn't make any sense that I typed TGT instead of DD. (Dumb & dumber, here.) TY for the help fishies.

I think Sherlock Holmes Lost Cases of 221B Baker Street is today's Daily Deal not TGT!

Hi there erigby,
I think the first game was titled "The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes". Although the gameplay is the same, it is more difficult because the items for which you are searching are sometimes VERY TINY - though there is a magnifying glass to help.
The devs seemed to have "listened" to the comments about the tiny items (which I actually enjoyed as a challenge), and made them much larger and easier to find in the second game.
And yes, there was a change of name sequence which makes them harder to locate.
Cheers.

this is the link to the first game; i remember buying it back in 2008

as there are only two 'lost cases' in the bfg list i think you already own is the daily deal today

Happy gaming!
