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
  • Opportunity to play as one of the four unique members of the Blue Toad Detective Agency

Most of the mystery games I've played are 80% find the hidden items and a few memory puzzles or recycled logic problems. Not Blue Toad, however. Although at first glance it seems like a kids game, the puzzles are a lot more advanced (sometimes frustrating). There are good mixes of logic and word problems, a few math puzzles and more as well as deductive reasoning and recall tests.
The only downside was that some of the rules were poorly explained. I was eventually able to figure most of them out.
Great game - looks nice, good variety of puzzles, and fun characters. Worth a play!

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.

This is a great game, combining the dry, dead-pan humor of the UK with some great animation and (most importantly) a well-designed puzzle game. I highly recommend it.

This one is a good story mode game if you have time to read through it all.

I found this game to be very simplistic, it basically resolves around solving simple puzzles which i found to be very irratating. It may have been the fact that i was stressed out as your timed on the puzzles and recieve either a bronze, silver or gold medal for how well you do and constantly told how 'rubbish' you are if you do badly, which seems kinda harsh for a fairly kid friendly orentated game. I would consider this much more like a kids version of professor layton. All in all i found this to be a very unappealing and annoying game, which didn't have a very exciting story to it and was far to simplistic for my liking and had very crude humour. Enjoyed Detective Grimoire so much more than i did this game.

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.
