About This Game

Blue Toad Murder Files™: The Mysteries of Little Riddle is a one to four player co-operative episodic download game published by Relentless Software.
Set in the sleepy village of Little Riddle, the main aim of the game is to follow clues to find the murderer. Along the way you'll also encounter a variety of different and challenging puzzles which help you move through the peaceful world of Little Riddle.
As one of the detectives you move around the village by selecting locations on the map. Visit the doctor at his surgery and hear his flimsy alibi. Meet with the Station Master and learn his motive. Exploring the village and meeting the villages is key to unraveling The Mysteries of Little Riddle. The villagers have information and puzzles to solve that you must complete to reveal the truth!
With each step of the investigation a puzzle is played and further clues about the case are revealed. Pay attention to what transpires – you will regularly be questioned on your knowledge of the case, and only observant detectives will learn the truth behind the events of their day.
Whodunnit? At the end of every episode you will be asked to choose your suspect before the true culprit is revealed and exposed in all their criminal capacities!

  • Thrilling cliff hanger at the end of every episode
  • Over 90 puzzles, Whodunnits and cross-examinations

It's not a bad "solve this" game. Just a little symplistic and slow pased. Not a bad game for kids though.

The english cosy setting has a nice apeal.

I am barely into episode 1 part 1 and already I find it tedious. Another review already mentioned that this game is confusing to categorize - who is this game aimed at? The puzzles are simplistic and yet would not be appropriate for children, yet as an adult playing the game, I found that the narrator is condescending to the point of irritation. In addition, the pacing is irritating. Two lines of dialogue followed by another puzzle would be frustrating enough, but each puzzle is prefaced by a short piece of dramatic music (the same every time) and a bland and completely unnecessary title screen. You're then given the instructions, then the puzzle, and then more time is taken up with a screen portraying a nondescript part of the village while three ducks, for reasons unexplained, fly past while the narrator drags out the 'suspense' by narrating "let's see if you got it right" or whatever and more 'dramatic' music plays and you realize that the dramatic music is the perfect background to your dawning realization of just how many of these time-wasting moments you'll have to endure if you continue the game. I wish game makers would come to an agreement that putting in time padding scenes/dialogue is only going to work if it's not the SAME time padding scenes/dialogue every. single. time. As it is, I have not yet reached part 2 of chapter 1 and I am very secure in my decision to find something else - anything else - to do with my Sunday afternoon.

I recommend this for anyone who loves puzzles, mysteries and a good dose of humor. The puzzles are surprisingly varied and test not only your memory and deduction skills but also math skills and the size of your English vocabulary, amongst other skills. While not probably worth the full price, get it when it's on sale and you'll get your money's worth of fun times.

This is a fun game. The puzzles are very well done and I like how they are all a bit different so you do not get bored. Some are harder then others and takes a bit of thinking. Over all it is a lot of fun. Even though I have beated the game I may play it some more.

An easier, more entertaining version of Professor Layton games. With some of the funniest characters I have seen in a long time.

Also no one seems to use their arms. 10/10
