Just Awful.

Heres a shocker, I dont actually mind Hidden Object titles. I know! The world will now end and fire will rain down from the sky!

That said however, I dispise this title. Why? Its commits a multitide of lazy 'Casual' game sins. Firstly having a soundtrack that seems to consist of the same one or two short tunes played on a repeated loop. Secondly is putting in no support for anything other than a small screen, anything large and giant black bars throw themselves across both sides of the screen.

Much worse however is the game design, the hidden object scenes are dull and often involve hunting for things that are half masked or blended in by the background. The puzzles too are equally dull and involve such 'Fun' activities as dabbing water over every spot of a painting to reveal another painting (which takes a blummin age).

Essentially its dull dull dull. If you want a good HOG title, find Mumbo Jumbo or take one of the other Frogware ones on Steam, dont take this.

Six hours is all what is needed to find all the hidden objects and solve the puzzles in the most difficult "adventure" mode. The hidden objects challenge is relaxing for a few minutes but not really interesting. About 12 of the puzzles are valuable though and despite a specific interface to repeat them, they are not properly renewed. The lack of voice acting makes it a sad and unsavory story. On the other hand, the locations are brilliantly illustrated. The main problem is: even after solving the murder, it is only when Holmes is explaining the course of events that you understand what's going on, or at least you don't need to understand anything to complete the game, since there are not enough intermediate check-up or summaries like in the following games of the series.
