A very enjoyable point-and-click adventure in which you play the role of a detective investigating a murder case. The story is exciting and it simply keeps you captivated throughout the 2-3h of gameplay.

All the characters are well designed, interesting and full of surprises. Some of the dialogues are funny and witty, adding an extra flavor to this already nice game.

The few puzzles that you need to solve in order to progress through the story are rather basic (each can be solved in less than 1 minute), but the cute cartoonish graphics and the decent voice acting easily compensate for this.

Super Hillarious Flash Adventure. Somewhere in the swamps there's a murder. You are a detective and have to find clues and interview all of the suspects. These swamp people are strange and nutty. So lots of laughs are guaranteed.
The whole story is well spreaded over the map. The puzzles are easy to solve. In extra challenges you unlock key items for the story progress. The graphics are nice and the music is supporting the comedy. Well done!

Terrific voice acting, clever and funny dialogue, artwork blends perfectly with amazing soundtrack, giving it true cartoon movie feeling (also duration). Puzzles are very logical and feel just right. One of the best point & click adventures I've ever played.

This game was amazing!
The character designs were creative and different, comical dialog and fun to play.
Soundtrack was wonderful to listen to while playing.
Gameplay was very interactive with the one playing the game and is fun for younger audience and adults alike.
Puzzles weren't that hard to figure out but could have been just a slight bit more challenging but that's alright, The comedy, characters, and story makes up for the small differences.
So I don't have any complaints about this game.

10/10

Would play again.

This captivatingly written "basically just a flash game" detective adventure is well worth one play-through, which depending on your completionism obsession should take between an hour and half and an hour more. There's no reason to replay it.

Jolly, but don't pay anywhere near full price.
