I have also played the trial time, but didn`t care very much for the game. If you prefer "classig hog" (only searching for clues one room after another), this could be your game. But I prefer a little bit more activity in my games these days. No buy

Ok, as always, I'm late to the party. Missed this one when it was released and only just found it today, so this comment will probably not be seen by many people who have moved on.

This is the only game I have ever demoed where I wish the demo time could be longer, as I felt that I hadn't seen any of the much-anticipated action before the hour was up. I wanted to try and find the 2 badges in each scene, so probably wasted a lot of time on that, but it didn't help that around 75% of the scenes produced a no-help witness, and that, as so many people have noted, some objects were impossible to find without using a hint (one particular one wasn't obvious even with the hint!

I think this game could be a nice time-filler for 'dry' periods, but I don't really want to waste my money on something that I didn't get into enough to judge it.

I think maybe I'll wait and see if it comes out on a DD.

Happy gaming

I like this as a change! I narrowed my suspects down to 5 and my murder weapon down to 2 at the end of my trial hour. I'm going to buy so that I can search 5 lairs.
This looks like a very long game. I did look for the badges in every scene too, which adds to the hog length.

ETA I like the achievements and the things to unlock too.
As the game could get boring / tedious, it's probably best played a couple of cases at a time.

I almost missed this one due to the soft release (and spending too much time on the MCF7 blog) but I'm glad I found it. It looks like the perfect game for my "rainy day" list, the ones I'm willing to replay whenever there have been too many TM and Strategy games and not enough HOGs being offered to feed my gaming adiction.

I like the idea of this game. Through the process of elimination through clues you figure out who the guilty party is in each case. Whodunit type games can be fun to me.

I played the entire demo hour and solved the first case and was part way through the second one. The crime happened in the same place again and I had to search the same locations and even look for some of the same items as well. That seemed kind of boring.

As others have mentioned, some scenes are quite dark and fuzzy. I used a lot of hints to get through.

TIP: Part of how I think I played faster than some other fishies was I didn't search every location in a country, say the US. I only searched places that the clues indicated. Before I even went to all of the places I'd planned to visit I was finished because I'd ruled all but one suspect out of the equation.

Thanks for all the reviews. I think the game has an interesting interactive structure and very nice graphics . But after about half the demo, just too many tiny items, many of which blend all to well into the background .
I agree hints are plentiful and, when used as explained in starter Help, they get right to the item. It's just that having to use hints takes away some of the fun for me.
Even though my brain says I Want It, my eyes says No Way!
To the fishies who buy it, looks like you've got a fun and lengthy game ahead of you!
Happy Gaming to All.

hmmmm... such a mixed bag of reviews.... I think I'm going to hold off on this one for a bit.... Maybe there will be an upgrade due to all of the reviews (doubtful, but one can hope!)

I have 10 or 11 purchased games I haven't played yet, so I think I'll wait til this becomes a DD....

As always, I appreciate the your extensive reviews and honest opinions.

Happy Gaming!!!

I really like this game and immensely enjoy the gameplay. I love the fact that it´s a ´Who done it´, where you have to find out who the killer is. Love that sort of thing.

And I love the fact that I have to look for badges as well to get something else unlocked - pity though that most of them are just shown as a badge-shape rather than showing the silver metal as well. It makes it really hard to find them.

I also found that many of the objects were near impossible to find unless I was using a magnifying glass. LOL
Graphics were mostly really nicely done, and lots of animation in them as well.

This is definitely a buy for me.

Loved this game, it has huge replay value, i have been playing this for days and days and have still not completed everything to win all the trophys in the highscore section of the main menu.
each case has a different outcome, and not always easy to determine who dun it!
Hog scenes were really good, well hidden objects, some with cryptic clues which i really liked, although these remained the same for each scene throughout, but as there are only 2 per scene it didnt really matter.also if you play repeatedly you do get a little used to where some items are, but the odd new one is occasionally thrown in, however there are many many different scenes to search, including the suspects lairs, which was great. the further on into the cases you get you also get different evidence.
well worth a coupon, would like more like this as there is so much replay value, unlike most others. 4.5/5

PROS:

Thankfully there is no wrong-click error or I would be really sunk. There is a huge replay factor due to all the different outcomes. The quick play mode only takes about 10 minutes to solve a case.

CONS:

Whoo-boy! If a game ever needed a magnifying glass it's this one! Some of the objects are tiny and I am playing on a very large monitor.

Overall it's a keeper for me.

I reviewed this game when it first came out earlier this month and ended up purchasing. They say there are 4000 cases and so far, I think they are right. I play at least 2 cases every day and have yet to come across the same one twice. Yes, the scenes are the same, but the clues, the locations you need to go to for the clues, and the victims are different each time. Sometimes, it isn't as easy to figure out "whodunit" as you think. I have been positive a couple of time, only to be wrong. This game just keeps going on and on. I'm completely enjoying it and mostly enjoying the fact that I didn't pay much for it and am getting more than my money's worth playing it. Thanks!!

I have a question for those who are playing the game. You know after you search the victims home and you get clues of where to search next, ex. money, tickets, casino chips, cactus, etc. Where does the cardinal fit in??? I can't figure it out!

Just played this on a boring very snowy day in England.
Think the idea is good but a definate no from me as the hidden objects are so small and hard to find against the shadows , dappled light, rain etc .
Shame as I was interested after reading all the other comments.

It's a clue to one of the American locations (baseball / football team?) but I can't remember which one.

The graphics are lovely. The sceens are beautiful and the suspects range from creepy to down right beautiful. The gameplay is HOG. However some items were too dark as were some areas. There is no timer so you can take as long as you like to solve, going to different areas. It took me a bit to figure out that the clues at the victims house were clues on what cities to visit.

This game is a B+. Dark items and areas ruin the game a bit.

I usually love games in which you can do some detective work -as guessing culrpits out of evidence etc...-

The only thing I didn't like is that the objects were in many cases so small and so dark or wickedly "disguised": A like a challenge, but this just made me feel like Mr.Magoo.

I managed to crack my case quite easily, so that was nice and I still have 20 minutes and I may try to get back to it... but I don't think I'll buy it because of the tiny dark items.

I have been playing this game on my iPad for a while now and I find the replay value well worth what I paid for it. I can't put it down it's so addictive.

What I would like to know is has anyone caught Mary Typhoid Mallon yet? Is it just random when you might catch her?

Thanks.

It's random. I caught her fairly early on & I've caught her once or twice since
