5.0 out of 5 stars classic British comedy 10 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase
This really is a great mystery puzzle game reminiscent of many classic British comedies complete with basil fawlty running the village hotel. The sound track and commentary are superb, the graphics are slick and the puzzles well thought out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning value for money 24 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase
I have the professor layton games and they cost twenty times what this did for not that much more game play. 72 puzzles, 6 criminals to identify and numerous case reviews to get right, plus the puzzles are timed with extra bonus points for quick solving. Good graphics, good characters, humorous,
what else could you ask for such little outlay. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this game 24 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase
This is like a cross between Midsummer Murders and Fawlty Towers. It looks very nice and plays faultlessly on my Kindle Fire HD.
It is good to have a game with British accents (albeit exaggerated one's) instead of the usual, annoying American ones. The sense of humour is very British too and all the better for it.
The puzzles vary in difficulty from easy to (in one case, for me) incomprehensible, but fortunately even losing is fun as you get gloriously insulted for your failure! KYou can always try again or Skip them altogether if you wish to.
It's also a game where it pays to pay attention to detail so that when you are tested on your memory of events, you get top marks or are able to identify the culprit.
I have only completed one out of the six cases but I know that I would be happy to buy future games in the series... assuming there is anyone left in the village at the end and they don't ALL end up shot! Or maybe the developers plan to move onto the next village and cause similar chaos there.... we can only wait and see.......

I agree with all the reviews - this is a great game. The dialogue is very tongue in cheek and pokes gentle fun at old murder stories. The puzzles are great and I wish there were more games like this - if there is a sequel I will buy it instantly

5.0 out of 5 stars Original format, some great aspects 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase
Bought this expecting nothing more than a typical 'hidden object' theme, but this is far superior. The game is set in a 'quaint' English village, full of your stereotypical eccentric characters, albeit cartoonish. The graphics are nicely done, good quality. There is nothing unsuitable for children, despite the murder theme, which is slapstick. There are 6 stories, each following on from the other. Each story contains around 12 brainteaser type puzzles - all unique. These are timed and given different awards, depending how fast they are completed. You can skip anything too challenging. There's added observation rounds, too, which will get you fixated to every word and object. At the end of each story, you are invited to pick the culprit from the suspects you have encountered along the way. The downside, if I'm being picky, is that a few of the brainteasers require too much mental exertion for a Sunday morning, etc. Get a calculator and it's no problem!
