“The beautiful art, a sultry musical score plucked from a jazz orchestra that could have been conducted by Nelson Riddle, and the design package is vintage, 1940s noir at its finest.”

+ Good visuals
+ 'Pick up and play'-gameplay
+ Good number of levels

- More puzzle than stealth
- Frequently crashes
- Unintuitive menu

Note: there are better puzzle AND stealth games out there. This game should've stayed where it belongs: on mobile devices.

I’ve played for an hour and I made it to the prison. I like this game I think it’s pretty well done. There were a few issues I had with it though.

If you don’t already know you have to sneak through locations, stealing valuables and getting past the goons without getting caught. For the most part it’s easy to play, I don’t mean difficulty-wise. As you can probably see, you just drag lines to create a path for the player character and tap special items and powers to activate them. The controls are simple and intuitive, so how to play the game is really easy to pick up straight away. I felt that that the difficulty was challenging but not unfair at all. It’s fun sneak past the goons (that’s what I call them lol) especially if you are able to slip past right behind when they go the wrong way.

The game look’s really cool. The music obviously is great. However it was a bit loud and there is no in game volume control only on or off. I had to turn down the volume in windows. I hope that people can still hear me over it in my videos! I didn’t pay 100% attention to the dialogue in cutscenes and during stages. But I think the fact that the game actually has a story is really cool for a puzzle game. From what I absorbed of the narrative it’s cliche, you are private investigator and a beautiful woman walks into your office one day, she ends up getting you into trouble and so on. But still it’s seems interesting and competent.

There are couple of little troubles I had with moving around which you will probably just get used to. To cancel a path you need to click near your character otherwise you will add to it and if you need to change course quickly to avoid enemies that will get you caught. Also there’s not really automatic pathfinding for your character. So if you click on the other side of a wall a path seems to be made straight into the way rather than a way that takes you around to where you want to go. The other sort of more serious issue I had with game was crashes. It crashed twice the transitions from cutscenes to parts 2 and 3 of the game. However it didn’t happen after completing the third part of the game before the prison which I thought it would because it seemed to be a pattern. But anyway even it crashes it only takes a moment to restart the game and it didn’t set me back much time. If it happened more often and/or during actual levels i think it would have been a more serious problem then, but it didn’t matter too much.

Okay, so yes I recommend this game. Honestly I can’t say a lot about the length of the game because as you probably gathered I haven’t completed it yet. But I think I think it is fun, overall good quality (aside from the occasional crashes) and it’s only $5.

Third Eye Crime tries to be a Stealth game, but ends up just being a puzzle pathing game. It grows more annoying than fun as you make your way through the story, just finding what path to take not how to sneak around the levels, or being allowed to go at your own pace. It has no stealth, for every map you are spotted with out chance and spend the rest of the time running away from the enemies. Objects in the game that can help you are rare and of very little use. The story is decent but it does not connect while playing the levels and the game suffers from any real depth.

So yes I saw the reviews saying that it wasnt great. But hell if the game can even start sometimes or even allow me to finish the starter cutscene then why the f*** is it on steam. Fix your game and make it work.
