Fun point and click murder mystery. The story could of been longer and a little more refined, but still good fun.
In a city of Pennsylvania, a Magistrate is murdered in a suspected way. You are called in to investigate this murder and discover the secret of this little city.
I recommend this game if you are looking for a fun relaxed puzzle game with a nice mystery.

Pretty easy and linear HOG. Nothing special. One minor bug in the helmet sorting. Artstyle is so-so. Good in a bundle, but there are better ones out there.

It's not a bad game. The detective story is decent and the items and puzzles are surprisingly meaningful.
However, there are too many downsides:
  • Very bad graphics and lack of animations. It looks like a game from 2001.
  • It's very short, I've finished it in about two and half hours.
  • There are way too many hidden-object scenes.
  • The "helmet placement" puzzle is broken and can't be solved. Skip button saves the day.

This game is squeaking by with a recommendation only if you can find it on sale, because it is very short and there are some minor issues that bothered me.

This is what I term an "Artifex Mundi" style of hidden-object/puzzle game in that there is a combination of hidden object, inventory management, and mini-game puzzles to solve. The game is not particularly difficult and as I mentioned, it is quite short. The plot isn't spectacular, which doesn't bother me too much personally but might be a turn-off for people used to the story quality of more recent AM games. The voiceover work is cringeworthy but blessedly limited to a few cutscenes and some dialogue at the beginning. Graphically it's not great but I've seen far worse, so I thought it was fine overall.

So overall, not a spectacular addition to the HO/puzzle genre, but not actually that bad either. I picked it up on sale for 75% off (making it only a little over a dollar) and don't feel at all regretful, but I wouldn't have liked to pay a full $4.99 for what I got.
