When I was a kid, I was part of a very elite crime unit consisting of myself and the kid who lived down the street. Despite never actually solved any mysteries, we were fully committed to the Detectives Club and the secret handshake we made up to go with it. Thankfully, there have been a host of mystery/deduction games recently that have allowed me to don my metaphorical deerstalker cap and imagine life as a brilliant detective. (Or, as my scores often reveal, not-so-brilliant.)

OK now we have the secret entry code dealt with, I think I like this app idea. I have Sherlock Holmes and the Cthulhu one but, you are right, there is an awful of flipping through a book, for both of them, and in some cases annoying typos and errors. I kinda liked that phone app where you go through a few Arkham adventures but ultimately there is not much meat on the bone for me. I do like innovative ideas with apps so I may give this one a shot.

Definitely going to buy. Thanks for the heads-up, Grace. I was wondering about this and how it would fare when considering it against the "Exit/Unlock" type games, and it sounds like it's right up my alley.

As an aside, it would be rad to have a link to Amazon here where ThereWill could get a portion of the sale as an affiliate or something.

Yes, uh, I knew that and am just trying to point out that it’s there in a nonchalant way...yeah....that’s it....

My girlfriend and I tackled the first 2 parts of the first case this weekend. We did pretty well on the first part, and pretty poorly on the second.

I enjoy the game. I think it's smoother to play than Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective, but I'm not ready to say I like it more or less than that one. The low tech SHCD still appeals to me.

I use my android phone, and you can continue cases where you left off. Also, I'll say that I really enjoy looking around the crime scenes, but spotting small details can be tricky, at least for me. I don't have the glasses. I was under the impression they came in the box, which they do not.
