About the 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!

Key features:

  • Six separate episodes
  • 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
  • 1 – 4 co-operative multiplayer gameplay

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

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 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 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.
