A few changes and perfect
All the things in this Game R awesome! The only thing that I would change is maybe just leave out the purchases but if you can’t leave out the purchases I would totally recommend lowering the price or even having no price at all that’s what I would really recommend. I really like how you can switch between easy medium and hard because I’m usually easy/medium level but I sometimes do hard. Could you put a box where you could type a message to the other players? I really like to interact with people and I think that interacting with the robots or your friends or whatever would be awesome. I also like the hints because sometimes you just need a hint really bad. Thank you so much for adding the cancel button!!! I almost made an accusation (for example, Professor Plum in the lounge with the dagger), but I clicked the cancel button because I didn’t want to accuse too early, I want to verify so thank you for making the cancel button! Maybe the app can not take up so much storage? If you read this review, developers, Please listen to this review.

Needs some reward incentives
I just bought the game and have played it nonstop for a day. Honestly, a lot of fun and a very smooth game. They make it simple and easy for note taking by making it automatic and also allowing you to make your own notes, with a few symbols. However, one con about the game that I found after playing for a day, is that there isn’t that rewarding feeling after the strategic puzzling you’ve gone through to win. Really wish there was some reward incentives other than seeing your name climb the leaderboard. I understand that there are in app purchases for better game cosmetics, however, I think you should unlock some cosmetics to be earned as a reward incentive. For example, unlocking certain characters with the stars you earn instead of using it towards the leadership board. I think it would be highly unlikely that someone would pay $2.99 for one character, when they can pay $5.99 for a character pack or $6.99 for a theme pack with the characters and board included. You can also add unlocking other things with stars like profile pictures, profile frames, and character frames. I took a look at the latest update which was 5 months ago. I hope you guys really take this into consideration for the next update, as I believe this could make the game so much better and so much more addicting!

Online mode/Hints
A few things that annoy me: One is whenever I play online (and for the record my wifi is fine) why does it allow other players to delay for SO LONG? Its not fair because whenever I take “too long” it times me and then just decides for me which I understand when you are playing with people online but why is that every time an online opponent takes “too long” they don’t get limited time? They just get to delay however long they want? When it lags like that it drains my battery and sometimes they take so long I end up quitting. Or sometimes it will freeze. Second is there should be some kind of snooze when a player leaves the game. I play on my phone and sometimes need to check something outside of the app but if I am playing online I have to make sure I am not away from the app or it freezes and kicks me off and I have to start over. There is a game called evil apples that just snoozes a player from a game if they leave the app or take too long to respond. HINTS: I understand how to use the hints in single player. But I noticed when I play online that other players are able to block me. So unfair! I only have the option to use hints if its single player but why can’t I use the hints like “blocking” when playing online??? But other players can? Come on!

Do NOT waste your money on this game…
I wish I would have thoroughly read the reviews on this game BEFORE spending money on it… I bought this game solely to be able to play with my family now that we all live in different cities and states, but it NEVER WORKS for us!! I have YET to play a game to the end because the app WILL freeze while you’re on the play with friends option - which, again, is the ONLY reason I bought this app is because it advertises that you can play with friends. We have even been reaching out to the company several times over the past few months and reported the issue to give them chances to fix it, just to constantly be told they’re “sorry” and that they will “forward my email to the team” so that updates can be made. They have had ONE app update in the last 3 months, and it did not fix anything! We have since emailed stating that if they are unable to fix the problem then we would like our money back, and again we received the same basic response to make it look like they care about this issue when it’s obvious now that they don’t. Why would they care to fix the issue when you already gave them your money?

I love this game, but there are a few glitches
I love this game, it is so fun, and the graphics are amazing! I also love the new maps, like tropical mystery, Sherlock, Hollywood studio, and all the others! Tropical mystery is my favorite! I just need to talk about some glitches. The first one is about the AIs when playing with friends. I feel like sometimes, if you put it on easy they are harder, but if you put it in hard they are easier. And sometimes, no matter what difficulty, they get lucky sometimes and guess it too early. The last thing is a small glitch that has been going on for probably only about a week, but when I try to play with friends, I create a game, but when people join, they don’t show up for the person who start the game, and it is hard to get everyone into the game. And sometimes when the game finally starts, after a couple turns, the game freezes and it might say that the person left the game. I might like this to be fixed because I like to play this game with my friends online! Thank you for reading this!

Worth it...a streamlined Clue game
I read all the reviews before I bought the App. Played the first game and loved it. After playing many more games I bought the very expensive clue boards and characters pack. I am not sorry I did, it really makes the game so much better. Now for some board suggestions: 1. Outer space theme...with an alien as a weapon 2. Spy theme, like James Bond. 3. Caribbean Cruise 4. Christmas priority for sales guaranteed 5. High school reunion 6. Island paradise 7. College campus murder 8. Zoo murder 9. Remote Antarctic research lab 10. Remote summer camp by a lake 11. Murder at a wedding...with scarlet as a bride of course. 12. Underwater research station 13. 50’s, 70’s, 80’s themed event 14. Theme park murder 16. Death in the sky... on an airplane 17. Adventure/ Tomb raiding expedition...maybe in the pyramids. 18. Death on the Nile...river boat murder. ...and don’t forget lots more great costumed characters. This makes the game extra special and adds a ton of replay value.

Finally! Where have you been!
EDIT: I shaved off a star because the multi-player, which came out a month ago, is really slow and wonky. It seems like there’s a 50/50 chance the app will freeze whenever I play multi-player; at first I thought it was just slow players, but it lagged repeatedly at the same moments in the game. The single-player version remains fantastic, however (but they need to add some sound effects to some of the rooms in the Castle Vampire version). Yes! A proper app that lets me play Clue whenever I want to! I love to interface, the graphics are great, and the note-taking functions are superb. Really smooth, handsome game! I play with the music off and the sound effects on, and it's great. If I could shave half a star off of this review, I would for one reason: the game allows you to purchase additional characters, but for some reason you can't play a "challenging" version of the game with all eleven suspects; it only allows six suspects for every game. I think that would be fun, as well as an update like the old "Master Detective" version of the same game. Also, some more "skins" or alternate versions of the board, please! Overall, good stuff, I'm really glad it's finally here and I'm glad I can exercise my brain with some six-player games, be they with actual human beings or AI.

Needs improvement
Solo is great, while multiplayers needs some improvement such as: -Kicking out those who stall every turn or who disconnect. We have to wait minutes just for them to make a move or hit continue since they are either trolling, taking too long, or disconnected. A normal 6 person game that usually takes 20 minutes took 40 minutes. -Awards and permanent score system is needed. We play games just for the leaderboard to reset, so whats the point of playing 100+ games just to have it reset? We need some incentive more than just a temporary leaderboard. Why not have a permanent leaderboard or level system to unlock new characters or boards that you can’t just buy? -Chat system is needed. Maybe not a full on chat system, but pre-filled phrases would be great. -Final accusation troll fix. Some people just hit final accusation to troll and then back out. -Final accusation bug. Whenever the timer runs out and you hit the submit button at the same time, your map turns into a blue background map, unable to see what’s going on until it’s your turn. -Different game modes. It would be cool to have different game modes such as a speed game, “can’t suspect your own card” game, etc. -Different music. The looping for some map music soundtracks get a little annoying. More music for those who don’t want to mute. This a good game and I really want it to be great. Hope you take my suggestions into thought. Thank you.

I have never made a review for an app before, but I don't want anyone to have to go through what I have. I bought this and the other Clue app after really enjoying the Apple Arcade version for many months. This is the second time I have ever spent money to get an app in my entire life and I did so after much consideration because I love Clue *that much*. However, unlike the Apple Arcade version, virtually everything in this game is behind a GIGANTIC PAYWALL! To unlock one other map, it's currently $7-$9 USD!! To unlock all the characters, it's $70 but "on sale" for $35! I've never heard of such a predatory app in my entire life! You only get the default map and characters and it gets extremely boring and repetitive very quickly. It just isn't worth your money and if you truly love Clue, I recommend just getting Apple Arcade instead and using that version. I feel so scammed and defeated and I don't want anyone else to go through this. It's such a fun game and the graphics are beautiful, but in my opinion there is no game on earth worth this type of money.

Well Done!!!
This is an outstanding achievement. The rooms and characters are beautifully rendered, and if you want you can purchase different versions and themes. I also appreciate that they don’t try to gouge you - the game is complete and ready to go with the basic purchase. But the real achievement here is the functionality. CLUE is a very tricky game to design in a digital format and they have produced a smart and logical and interconnected interface and functionality. Last and not least, the computerized characters are able to ask for suspects, weapons or Rooms they already have in their hands. This is critical to the game, and older versions weren’t programmed with such depth. Thus if the computer asked to see Miss Scarlett, you knew the computer didn’t have it, so all strategy was lost. Well done ladies and gents!!!

Great game but CRASHES ALL THE TIME!
First off, this game is amazing. All the different settings and character outfits are incredible. The art style is very articulate and beautifully created. They do a great job with setting the stages well. What they don’t do well is their updates. We haven’t received any new levels for over a year and when they do update the game, they seem to add a whole bunch of glitches to the game. I’ve lost track on how many times the game has frozen in the midst of a match, where are my friends and I have to reboot the game and start all over. We’ve seen glitches where the backgrounds of scenes suddenly have weird kaleidoscope errors or portions of the background disappear entirely. If it wasn’t for all the errors and glitches, I would happily give this game a five out of five stars. But the lack of care they seem to have for just stabilizing the game much less add a new contact is straight up disappointing. 😔

Let us look at the notes after the game
I play pretty much exclusively with AI, and the biggest reason that I knocked off 3 stars is the frustration dealing with said AI. I don’t recommend anything less than all hard due to how stupid situations come up way too often. Such as getting locked into a corner cause everyone is in the same room and has to repeat the exact same suggestion that includes your character (4-6 players), knowing the answer due to finding out no one has the cards and passing. Occasionally an AI will make an accusation with ruled out cards (the game added the x automatically to the character and weapon for example, leaving only the room as the logical choice to disprove the suggestion yet was the card in the final accusation), unclear source of information or “guess”. There is no way to keep the AI “honest” or learn from own mistakes, if there is no way to go back and verify notes afterwards. This is the only thing holding 3 stars back.

So fun, online games are limited
This game is so fun. I loved Clue as a kid and have really, really loved playing it as an adult! My only criticism is that the only options for playing online are 3 or 6 players. I'm guessing this is the keep the cards even? I originally thought that the option "any number" meant literally any amount of players... After many, many games I've decided that isn't the case. I strongly feel as if people choose the any amount of player option, they should and would be okay with an unequal number of cards. This would just allow for more variety in difficulty and strategy. I see how deciding who had more vs less cards would be difficult.. Perhaps the spin to see who goes first could happen prior to drawing cards and the cards could be distributed starting with who goes first? Whatever the solution, I would love to see this option added!

Good game overall
The single player game is very enjoyable, although like some other reviewers have already pointed out, it would be a good idea to roll dice for the starting icon in a single-player game, as frequently you can end up doing all of the work for the AI and losing by round 3 due to bad luck. It’s also really unrealistic that the AI always guesses correctly, even in cases where they could not have eliminated a suspect, weapon, or room. The multiplayer is still a bit buggy (and I agree that the prizes for winning seem meager), but other people have gone into that in much greater detail than I need to. My main purpose in writing this review is to let the developers know that these latest updates completely obliterated my tokens, my game cards, my score and my ranking. That’s not cool, folks. I’m sure you’re fully aware how much time your players invest in this. To have a lot of work wiped out due to an update is genuinely discouraging.

In app purchase no longer available. Only reason for 1 star, otherwise 5 stars.
I purchased the game Clue November 13, 2020, and did an in app purchase of the Sherlock theme bundle April 9, 2022. I noticed a while back that I no longer have access to the Sherlock theme bundle — in order to play I have to purchase it again. I clicked Restore Purchases under Settings several times on different days to no avail. Even though it tells me that “purchases are successfully restored,” it is not. I also delete and redownloaded the app, nothing. After redownloading I clicked restore purchases, nothing. I reported it as a problem, nothing, no reply from anyone. Please have my purchase restored. If you need proof of purchase, I have that of both the game and the bundle.

I wanted to love this …
because it would have been so fun playing w my family. But … if the multi player options are anything like the single player option, there isn’t much of anything to actually play. Sure, I tapped the screen to roll the dice. But that was it. The game zipped along, with each player in a room after each roll. No one was ever stuck in the hallways, because every roll was close enough to get into a room (except for me, because when I was trying to move it somehow thought I was ready to make an accusation halfway through and left me there). But the biggest disappointment is that it filled out my entire sheet for me! Not only who has what, but even who doesn’t have what. It gives me an option to mark things, but there’s nothing left for me to mark. I tried to find an option in Settings to disable that, but no dice. (Yes, bad board game pun.) So … I’m honestly not even sure what’s the point.

Clue is definitely Classic
This game is great! My least favorite thing about the actual board game was that you couldn't go into rooms that other players are blocking the doorway to.... but in the app, that doesn't happen!! The only thing I don't like is that there are as I call "cheat cards" that you can use but you have to pay for, which means the higher you pay, the greater your ability to manipulate your chances of winning, but, since you only play computer players and not online with other people, I guess it doesn't make too much of a difference. I haven't paid any additional money other than the download price, and I have full access to all I need to enjoy the game. All the extra purchases are cosmetic and unnecessary. Overall: awesome game, love it!

My favorite game at the table, and on iPad
I love this game. Clue has been my favorite game since I was a little kid, and it does not disappoint now more than 20 years later. I go through spells where I play this game for hours at a time, it’s just so fun. Especially the online component, which brings in more challenge than the computers do in offline mode. My one gripe for this game is that it is played in portrait mode. I had an iPad Pro, one of the original ones that is gigantic, so it’s hard to lay in bed and balance it in front of me while I play. I wish the game had landscape mode, so the iPad could be held a little more naturally. I use my iPad almost exclusively in landscape mode, anyway, it’s just this one game I have to flip it for. Please, please, please make it in landscape.

FIXED - Multiplayer Does Not Work - FIXED
***UPDATE: After reaching out to the Developer team last week I was informed and update was coming in the next few days and then saw that it was available the next morning. Updated the app, and now I am having so much fun with my friends! A great developer team with very quick response and they even gave me a list of troubleshooting procedures to get it fixed! Thanks for the amazing game. I am already addicted to multi player! **************** ORIGINAL REVIEW: Multiplayer option to host an online game for you and your friends does not work. Was literally the sole reason me and a friend bought this game in such hard times during COVID-19. Please refund me or fix the game ASAP. I am on lockdown in my own home and I’m going crazy.

Love it, except one flaw takes away a star
When it’s your turn, the dice blocks the view of the board, and where your opponents are at. Also, The room labels, I.e., hall, lounge, etc., covers the opponents so you can’t see which rooms they are in. We need to be able to see where the other players are located when we make our room choice. Maybe have the opponent colors bleed through the room label. But otherwise, I love this game, and hope you fix that flaw in the future, because then it will be perfect. I also suggest being able to note which of our own cards we have already revealed to other players. We are prevented from making any notations on the cards we are holding in our hand. I recommend this app, even with the flaws mentioned.

Great game/needs some gameplay updates
I love the game. 1.It would be nice to have new board packages a little more often as well as more animation. I enjoy switching up the boards and players. 2.Also it would be nice to have comments available like in monopoly. Like, “please hurry up” because I think people forget to press the “continue” button once another player completed their turn. It kind of makes for an extra long game. 3.lastly it would be awesome if you could keep track of our all time wins. Sometimes I’m winning so many, that I wish I could see how well I am ranking by wins not how many points. Like, you feel like a genius when you win back to back to back.

Based too much on luck
I downloaded this app and played for about a week before I deleted it. I learned several different steps of logic and reasoning this game involves. Unfortunately, a lot of the game depends on when you take your turn. If I was the first to take a turn, then on my 4th turn I wouldn’t have enough information to know the answer. However, if I was fifth or sixth to take a turn, I wouldn’t get a 4th turn because one of the computer players would have the opportunity to answer first. In either case I had to guess on my 4th turn with less than enough information and just hope I was right. I’m not interested in guessing; solving a mystery should only involve logical application of reason. The rules of this game are ridiculous. As soon as a player wants to offer an accusation they should be able to do so. It should be about who can solve the mystery first, not about whether or not it’s your turn.

Excellent game, but…
There seems to be a glitch where you tap to mark a note at the same time the other player shows their card. It just shows up as blank and I cannot make a note of whether the person has the card or not because it is blank. Also, I would REALLY love an option to hide the gold ultimate detective badge because for some reason, players tend to run away whenever I join a room to the point where playing is not as fun. There is no option to hide that badge, so I’m sad about that because I keep seeing a message where the host has left a room. Overall, this is one of my favorite apps. I love the different boards and characters.

A Bit Buggy
I love Clue, and was super excited to see that this was available to purchase and play online with other players. The games great when it works. The loading for online players for a six person match is messed up. Either you get stuck in a five person loading lobby waiting for a sixth player - or when you do get a lobby with six players it doesn’t continue to the game. There’s also a bug that when a game finally starts and it’s the first players turn - the dice doesn’t show up for some time so your sitting in a game that’s about to start for some time. Once the game gets going it’s fine. But to actually load in and start a game is where the frustration lies. I feel as though if those bugs were fixed people would be more inclined to purchase in app purchases because the game is fluid and actually works.

Should be much better
This game is not as good as either of the PC versions that came out in 1998 and 2008. The graphics are fine and the app works as intended, but it isn’t faithful to the game, and the in-app purchases or deceiving, in my opinion not in good faith. First, the board is different than the original board game. Players all start in the center, rather than in their traditional peripheral spots. Miss Scarlet normally always go first, which I guess they’ve dropped for equality. But the doors and spaces between the rooms have all been changed, which removes the strategic component of using your token to block out other players. Also, classic rules are that the player must declare if he or she is going to use a secret passage, or stay in room that someone has moved them into, prior to rolling the dice. This version doesn’t follow those rules. My biggest issue is that there is a $6.99 Classic Board and Characters bundle, which I purchased, and no refund is possible. The board is exactly the same, just with different artwork. That’s outrageous...if you advertise it as the classic board, it should be the classic board. But it has the exact same terrible new layout, the changes are only cosmetic. It seems like every ten years a new electronic version of this game is released, and each one is worse than the previous one.

Great but...
Omg I love this game, if anyone else makes a clue game they will never be able to be this. I would just like to say can you please make more boards and characters because you guys make awesome boards and characters. I love this game and I love playing with my family, but here comes the only problem with that. Sometimes it kicks me out and then it’s says I’m kicked out while I’m playing with my family like this morning for no reason and makes me a computer on there’s and makes all of them computers on mine which I don’t like and it didn’t happen to them. Please can you fix this soon and then that would be outstanding! Hope to see even cooler things in the future! -a fan :)

Best board game adaptation app
I love this app and play daily! The gameplay is seamless, the graphics are lovely, and it’s intuitive to use. I bought the expansion option so I love when new boards roll out. I wish all characters had an appropriate avatar for each board to widen the variety of characters you can play that are theme appropriate. I’d love to see a future update where you can mark off which of your cards you have already revealed (for example, if I had Ms. Scarlet and had to reveal the card to another player, it would be neat if the Ms. Scarlet block in that player’s column was filled in with a solid color to indicate they had been shown that card). It would be neat too if there was an “expert” mode where it didn’t auto-fill the Xs. It would add another challenging level of gameplay if we had to fill it in ourselves in an “expert” difficulty level. I did notice that any games I play against the computer are no longer counting in the solo leaderboards. The only time my gameplay registers on a leaderboard is if I play online against strangers. Hopefully this will be fixed in a future update.

There are some issues...
If you love clue, you will definitely enjoy this app. I do, and I play all the time. I do have a problem with it though. I recently purchased the “Warning” hint for $2. It is supposed to show you how close other players are to solving the crime. I have tried it in single player and multiplayer mode, and it doesn’t work. Tried clicking on it to activate it, it gives a message that says the hint is permanent and doesn’t need activated. Looked on the app for a way to report the problem, there is no way. Even tried coming to the app store and clicking the “App Support” button to see if I could report the problem that way, and it took me to a page that says “404 error page not found.” If you want people to spend as much money on this app as you expect, you should most DEFINITELY have a way for them to report errors. Until then, my rating stays low.

Great for single player, online is buggy
Single player mode is fun and works well with the exception of having the other player icons cut off on newer phones with Dynamic Island. The online mode is fun when it works, but it’s frustratingly buggy. About 50% of the time, the game will freeze at some point before the end of the game and I’ll have to quit. It’s not just slow waiting for other players; even waiting 5 minutes the game stays frozen. It’s very frustrating to have to quit a game after investing 20-30 minutes into it. The developers do seem to be actively fixing some bugs (online lobby issues were common, but seem to be better now), so hopefully these other issues can be fixed as well.

Online play still has computers
I love this game and play it often, but I recently discovered that half the time you are playing “online” with people, it is actually just computers playing instead. You can tell because at the end if they get it right, when no one has a card to show, they will not make an accusation, and then the game just continues until it’s your turn and you “win” because you now know all 3 cards. I can also tell when I go into a game lobby and then go out, then go back into another theme and it’s the same usernames in each different theme lobby. Just really disappointing and also makes it way less fun. Please fix this issue. I would rather wait for real people to play with instead of just a bunch of fake computers on “online” play.

No Landscape, only vertical. iPads like Landscape.
That keeps it from five stars for me. Having to hit continue after everyone’s turn is a hassle and slows the game down. This is said so each person can update their detective pad. The computer updates your pad, plus there is enough down time for everyone to tweak their pad while it is others turns. Multiplayer was great. Had two full games on the new yacht map, and a four player game on traditional, this was 8am to10am on a school day. Only took a minute to load up after hitting the lobby. Great game, Great app. Well worth 4 to give it a try. Having to play vertical on an IPad may keep me from going all in and getting the many maps. Fun game, thanks for all the hard work.

Highly recommend- few snags have been solved!
This is one of my favorite games on my phone that does not get old. I love the original board game, but this brings it to the next level with great graphics, music ,and automated play. I sprung for the expanded boards and characters pack, and despite the high price, it was definitely worth it. There were some issues playing multiplayer when the game would freeze and lock out, but it seems that recent updates have solved that issue- kudos developers! One thing that would make the rest of my 2020 seem bright would be additional boards and characters, as the most recent reviewer recommended below. Thank you!!!

Could be 10/10
I love this game.. I've played it for years. But I've had one primary complaint in all the time I've been playing it that I just can't understand why there hasn't been a solution yet. I always play the online version with random opponents.. The game pauses when a player navigates away from the app. The game doesn't tell you what's going on.. it doesn't boot the inactive player after any amount of time.. and the actual active players are left to just sit and stare at a game that WILL NOT PROGRESS. This is SO FRUSTRATING. Especially when you're already multiple rounds into a game, then you sit there for 10 minutes waiting for the game to unpause, and you're forced to quit. It's such a waste of time.

Overall Great - Four Issues
Graphics are amazing, game play is seamless, and never experienced any glitching. Really enjoying it. Four issues: #1: As others have stated, starting in #1 position on hard means you’re going to have to guess without all necessary information nearly every game, or another player will win. You get three rolls, four if you’re lucky.. but if you could roll a die to determine your position randomly, or follow the board game rules and always start with Scarlett then go in order it would be great. #2: $35 to unlock the game content after paying $3-$5 for the game is absurd. Make it $9.99 total and I’ll buy it. The board game is $8.99 at Walmart. #3: Give us the traditional character skins with the initial purchase instead of making THAT character pack an add on. #4: For the life of me (other than for ranking) I can’t figure out how the score works. It’s not in the App Store description, not in the game, and not listed online anywhere. Please tell me how the score system works and how to get higher scores per game... Time? Difficulty level? Number of players? Number of suggestions? I have no idea what factors in. Great classic game.

Pretty good, needs a couple of things though
I like playing this game whenever I got a couple of minutes. I even bought all the skins. There are a few things I’d love to see added. 1. Little stories that go along with the skins. In the board game you get a reason as to why you’re at the mansion. Obviously you know why you’re there while playing the app, but there’s some skins that I feel like could have a nice little intro, like the Egyptian dig (why does peacock have a crown!?) 2. Landscape mode, this is what I really want. I love playing on my iPad before i bed. I like to prop it up so it’s horizontal. But when I play the game, there’s no landscape. I’d love it if there were a landscape mode to this game. That’s about it.

Perfect except…
I really love this app! The design is seamless and the game is really fun to play, especially with friends. I also really love that the game automatically crosses off items you “find” so you don’t need to remember. Love this game!!! The only thing I wish is that there weren’t so many in-app purchases ($3.99 per level and more $$ for more characters?). Considering the app itself isn’t free, it’s kinda a bait & switch. It should either be $3.99 for the app and you get 2 levels and more/all characters or the app is free with the current settings. Also, the levels should be $.99-$1.99, $3.99 for EACH level would add up quickly.

3 1/2 Stars
I’m pretty sure I’ve been playing this game since it came out, and I’ve seen it through all its changes and additions. I started when it was just the one board and character set. The game has always worked well; I’ve never had problems with bugs. I paid for all the current and future boards/players months ago, and I mostly wish I hadn’t. I liked the Halloween and winter sets, but I’m not a fan of at least three of the other boards/sets—some of the themes seem weirdly lazy. I also think the characters all should have titles of at least Miss or Mr. I don’t like that there’s no way to get hint cards anymore, either. Another player said that they wished a roll of the dice would determine your playing sequence because going first isn’t really an advantage, and I agree. Hint cards come in handy when you’ve missed solving the puzzle by one player several times in a row. Sometimes you just need a win. My final beef: I don’t understand why you can only play one of each type of character. Why not be able to play all the Greens or Plums or Scarletts against each other? My suggestion to the developer for the next theme: royalty. How much fun would a medieval castle be?

I miss the old Clue app
While I appreciate the updated graphics this new version offers, I wish they kept the story-based mode the original Clue app offered in addition to the new modes. In the old version, it used a footstep-based pacing model instead of dice. Dialogue clues were used instead of cards. I found this to be more organic and it felt like playing detective point-and-click adventure game with endless replay value (best of both worlds). I regret deleting the old app from my phone as it is no longer accessible. The aesthetics of the new app are impressive and I like that you can add different character skins to keep it interesting. If they found a way to incorporate the old logic-based model into this new game, it would be perfect.

2.9.1 Version Update Issues
Just updated the game on my phone and my boyfriends phone. We went to play a game and it took multiple tries to even join and enter the lobby. And then when you hit tap when ready, we are still sitting in the lobby and the game won’t progress like it normally does. On top of there are no additional buttons other than tap when ready. Tried to restart the app plenty of times between the both of us. Not sure if this is an issue related to the new version update but it makes it frustrating to try to play. Please fix this.

Love Clue, this game is ok though...
I love Clue. I play it with family and friends on gamenights and at partys. This game is dead on considering layout and how to play. The graphics, though, are bad. I feel like there should be more animation and more creative design. The characters on the game board are not good. They look like colored blobs. At least they move where they are supposed to go. The game is mostly the same except character design. The characters look different. SCARLET IS A BLONDIE! SHE WAS BRUNETTE! AND PLUM IS SUPPOSED TO BE A GINGER! CERNAL MUSTARD LOOKS FOREIN! HE DOESNT EVEN LOOK LIKE HE’S SUPPOSED TO BE IN THIS GAME! WHAT THE CRAP! The board feels smaller than it was, originally. I thought it had 11-12 rooms but this one feels like it has 5. The board is really small. Please send something back, developers, because I need anwsers.

Needs a few new features, but good start.
There are not enough options for note-taking. Numbers should be at least 1-10. I should be able to make notes in my own column. I miss the deck of cards, but it plays well enough without that if I could just take more notes, like one would do on paper. Nice art on the character cards and board. Animations are also nice. It would be nice to be able to skip thru them when short on time or battery. I like that you give character options for your cards. ★ Thank you for your response. Also adding that each character COLOR should have male and female options and even some ambiguous options - something for everyone. In notes I want a column or two separate from my competition to make notes in. Thank you! Up ★★ → ★★★.

Great Game, Bad Online Players
The game is fantastic, but I can’t get over how bad players are online. The goal of clue is to gather as much information as possible while giving out as little as possible. People online will figure out who the murder is and sit there and accuse that same character over and over and over, giving the information to everyone else in the game, and inevitably someone else who has figured out the weapon and room picks up on this and wins the game despite the fact they should still need more information to solve it. Or my other favorite is the payer that enters the game, makes one accusation and then makes an incorrect final accusation and is out of the game 1 minute in, leaving it a 2 player game.

Keeps freezing!!!
I have had this game for a few days now and have been actively playing everyday, I have found myself frustrated when it freezes mid game on the play with friends mode. Once it freezes you back out of the game you can not continue and have to restart. Now I am on single player mode playing I used the block hint on my last turn knowing the computer is getting close to the answer, a few people later it prompts me to use it. I can’t click it because I’ve already used it now it won’t let me click anything else making me back out and restart. For a game I’ve paid for and bought extra boards for I find this not worth my money to not be able to finish the game THAT I PAID FOR! If it was actually working all the time this would be a fun game. I will not be buying anymore boards after this.

Great game except!
The game is a great game to play if your going to be able to play in one sitting. If you have to play the game in multiple sittings you will be screwed. If you close the game and come back to it later your next dice roll will be a 3! It happens every time I play, with no exceptions. It limits my options when playing. I have to stop while I’m in one of the four corners so that I can have the option to move to the opposite corner and make an accusation and not lose that turns accusation. It is infuriating when you have to limit your options in that way when you know you will need to end a game session and continue later. I would give 5 stars but for the issue described I give a 2 star rating, because 80% of my games are played in more then 1 session.

Needs Pause Function & See Notes in Post Game
Fun game, but in dire need of Pause ability for when you’re playing with family & friends and need to pause the game to attend other apps or matters-at-hand, or play the game as players have time. The way it stands now, the entire game is lost if any one player is interrupted by another app or “timed out”. It wouldn’t bother us if it took an entire week to play a game by pausing it as necessary. Just add a notification for when it’s your turn to move. We don’t always have time to sit down and play a full game start-to-finish. We’d just like to finish the ones we start. Also needs ability to see Notes after the game is over. That would increase the joy level tenfold.

Favorite game
I got this game when it was super cheap because I love clue but don’t always have real people to play with (then covid happened). I haven’t bought any extras and I don’t play online so I use it for the basic but it’s a great game with superb graphics and gameplay. I recommend it to everyone as it keeps my mind active. My only con is that within the last few months (can’t remember exactly when) the sound stopped working. No matter what I do the game is silent. It’s not a huge deal for me as it doesn’t impact gameplay but sometimes I wish I had the music to listen to while I play. I still love this app and game and play almost every night!

Not bad
It’s good, you win through making suggestions. I would only maybe suggest adding a little more? When you win, it just ends, there’s nothing to reward your victory. Not even a better upbeat background tune. It leaves much to be desired after spending so long winning it and recovering the bare minimum. In real life, the reward is seeing the others defeated looks or yells of frustration, but you can’t do that online so I thought they’d have some other way to make it worthwhile. Honestly speaking, not really worth 4$ if you have the actual board game and some people you can play with. Not to mention how you have to pay so much inside to game for all these individual things, quite clearly a money grab scheme.

Very convenient!
This is just like the board game, just without the time taken from shuffling and writing! All of this is replaced by automatic randomizing and simple taps of the screen. All of the family can play, as well as friends from real life and the internet. There are also a lot of choices for skins, and you unlock even more if you pay a few more extra dollars. Just like skins, you can by maps to play. They even have both put together as a theme. Recently, I bought the Murder Express Theme and I’m quite happy with the product. I would definitely say this was worth the money! Thank you creators for this fun and convenient game! 😊

Multiplayer - Bugs and Glitches
Other than that we were playing with no interruptions except for this. Also an option to choose timed or not would be nice, with tweaks to how slow or how fast you want it. Also someone else tried to use the reveal card and it didn’t work for them. Reveal needs fixing. The game on multiplayer was in-sync with us this time though. The dlc is what I call way overpriced since one board is more than the game itself, and seeing as how you have to pay more than the actual game clue itself, even with multiplayer semi-fixed I’m not sure why the boards and characters cost so much. Fix the glitches with the 3 things u get to use every game please. It still is getting stuck when showing someone a card.
