I played the game more than 30 minutes and I liked it it was a pretty straight HOG game and if they put it on a daily deal one day I may buy it. I really like murder like games so this one caught my attention from the beginning. The graphics were not too much of my liking, too dark and for me too blurry but at least the story intrigue me a lot more.

I give it a 3 out of 5 .

The grapihcs are nice under the dready brown. The gameplay is HOG with some minigames. Too easy. The storyline is a yawn. Also they have you find all these "hidden" bullets, but if they aren't on the list to find and you click on them it's a penalty! The hint is rechargable.

This game is a C-.

I went to 2 other sites and the reviews were pretty much the same as here.

I Loved both Nick Chase games and 'Little Noir Stories: The Case of the Missing Girl', in no way does this game compare to either one even slightly. I do like this type of game very much if done well and was almost excited as I downloaded. Talk about being let down. This is just BAD.

I'm can't imagine wasting money or credits on this game. I do believe that my nephew made better games in his garage. BF what were you thinking?

I rarely write such a strongly negative comment but it seems almost insulting to present us with this caliber of game.

This is a no-buy for me. I found it to be quite boring, and didn't even finish the whole trial hour. Also, there were some items that were misnamed: "cafe" grinder for coffee grinder; "spyglass" for magnifying glass. Also, the two-word items were very close together so "clogs" looked like "dogs" with the c and l very close together. There was really no mystery involved; just dialogue and then another hidden object scene. I usually dislike mini-games; these were OK, not hard, but I sometime skip them during a trial because they take up so much time.

Too short (easy) and too much HOG play! Boring! I wasted $6.99!

I'm a bit surprised at all the really negative comments about this game. I pretty much liked it. The gameplay leaves a bit to desired, for sure, but I was impressed by the visual style. They tried to do something a little different and I thought it worked very well. For the $2.99 Daily Deal, it was well worth the money. I'll be happy to purchase anything the developer has to offer in the future.
