A point-and-click adventure game starring a fiesty private gumshoe named Petra set in re-imagined Kingdom of Oz. Many characters from the canonical adventures written by L. Frank Baum make an appearance, and their interpretations in this game are decent. Each character has their own voice, personality, back story (inspired or taken from the books) and motives, although you only get a little taste of what they are like in this world.

The animation of the characters is passable, the voice acting is mostly decent, although the quality of the audio is iffy at times. Also, there is no actual full screen mode, just a boxed screen. As far as gameplay goes, it's all very straight forward and you won't likely find yourself getting lost often or for very long. It's a shame as the story is pretty engrossing. More challenging gameplay or mind puzzles would have made the game much more enjoyable (I'm not saying it wasn't!) There are also hidden "items" in the world that unlock sketches and concept art, but they aren't difficult to find and you don't have to go out of your way to find them.

I haven't completed the game, but I'm already more than halfway done. Looks like this game tops off at around 5 or 6 hours. There are no branching paths, so there is little to no replayability. I won't give away anything, but what I figured would be a standard private eye story set in the land of Oz actually transformed into something slighly more greater.

So, should you buy it? $9.99 is a bit pricey for me to say yes, and the only reason I got this game was because of a Steam sale. It wasn't in a bundle, but the premise and price at the time were enough to persuade me to buy.

Wait for a price reduction and you'll have a fun and interesting way to kill an afternoon.

Another good game to add to my noir list!

At first, I thought the game was a little too simple and a little oddball, but then as the story unfolded - I was hooked!
The story opens with a woman named Petra, discharged from the army and becomes a detective to solve crime and hopes to one day find her missing brother.
There aren't any puzzles in this game, it's purely story driven - you'll find yourself going back and forth to converse with various characters to gather information, collect magical items and evidence to further the plot.
What I really loved about the game was all the side characters and their storylines, it added more depth to the overall plot and really gave me an idea of what the game's 'culture' and time period is like. And, if you pay close attention, you might even recognize some of the themes that are borrowed from the film noir genre and the history during WWII.

I beat the game in roughly seven hours, and it may seem like a short time to beat it, but it felt like I had played it a lot longer than that. It's a really good balance for a point-and-click.

I don't really have any complaints; it's a good game and the story ties up nicely at the end.

This was a nice point-and-click adventure about the land of Oz. What I really liked was that the puzzles weren't so difficult that I ended up frustrated and having to pull up a walkthrough. (Why do I always bring up walkthroughs in my recommendations for point-and-click games?) They and their solutions all made sense. The story flowed well and it was a nice alternate tale in the Oz universe.

But I think this game is about drugs. This game is about drugs.

Great game. A very lite adventure game experience that gets rid of the tedious non sensical inventory combining puzzles in most adventure games. It is heavily focused on the story and dialogue. It's pretty easy with some minor difficulity but very fair puzzles in the middle, but when you solve the puzzles, you'll feel good about your self. The world, the characters, and the music are all excellent. I'm not the biggest Wizard of Oz fan, but they did a really good job into making this game interesting, and kind of made me interested in the other Oz books. Play it!

A witty and humorous sequel of 'the wizard of Oz'. It is a point and click game so as expected, it focuses mostly on the story but it does an amazing job at it

Worth it if you're looking for a casual game with a great story

Quite a fun game, also worked on by Wadjeteye Games and it is interesting when they do with the wizard of Oz lore. I quite enjoyed this and it's a nice short adventure game that I recommend to most anyone willing to have a go with it, not to mention it's quite cheap and easy to find online.

Unlike other Oz based things I've seen recently, this game adds to the lore instead of alters it and holds a lot of references to all the many different areas of Oz that you get to travel outside of the emerald city. You soon find yourself getting involved in a conspiricy that could plunge Oz into danger.

Gals like Emerald City's own Petra are one in a million: tough, sharp and doesn't mind charging by the hour.

On the other, the puzzles in Emerald City Confidential are easy, dull and don't know when to hit the road. It's all wrapped up in a good yarn lousy with twists, sure, but it might not be worth a darn if you're the type to shy away from a tangle of stringy puzzling and casual clickery.

♥♥♥♥ if I don't love this kind of hammy writing, though.

Now what do we have here? Honestly speaking, I have to admit that I came accross this game by chance, but what a chance it was! I really loved it!
At its core, this is what you might call a casual-adventure indie game. The riddles might be quite obvious to the experienced player, but still it is a nice one to play through. The story actually evolves very well and keeps the player engaged with the plot and whats going on. Truth be told, it might probably not rank among the greatest of all-time adventures, but if you enjoy playing one every now and then you can't do much wrong, even though if you are not - or never have been - into the "Oz"-story, just like me.

You play as Petra a Detective in the Land of Oz who lives in the Emerald City, she has a notebook and shes not afraid to use it. Thought this game would be short or simple, but the story got much bigger. This is probably one of the few games I ever played that is entirely story driven, for a game I got pretty cheap, the voice acting is some of the best I ever head in a video game. None of the puzzles are so difficult you need an outside browser since in game you have a notebook to provide hints if you need them. For a lazy day game that will take you to a far off place this is alot of fun.

Rating: 10/10 Value: 9.99

This was an interesting noir-ish spin on the Wizard of Oz that I liked. Unfortunately, it was over in a few hours but I enjoyed it.

A great adventure game which put the land of Oz (from "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz") through a film noir style, takes place several years after Doroty Gale defeated the witches and returned home.

The storyline is great, full of drama and plot twists, while voice acting and dialogues are superb. The graphics are nice and the puzzles are not too hard. If you like the game with a great story, I recommend this game.

The name itself says how weird of a concept this game is. But, it has a pretty cool story and really likable characters.

What do you get when you take the Land of Oz and merge it with film noir? You get Emerald City Confidential a typical point and click adventure game. Only recommended for adventure game fans.

I bought this as a joke, since it was super cheap and on sale.

Actually kinda fun. Especially if you actually read any of the Oz stories.
