This game is the best murder mystery I’ve ever played. Not like the other ones were you have to find objects in the room and the game solves it for you or when you have to do crossword puzzles to win, this game is great they have good mysteries and plots there are incoming phone calls and you get to decide everything, it is interactive the cases are really cool there are difficulty levels and the easy levels aren’t cliche and too easy to figure out they take about 10 minutes for me to figure out and the medium and hard ones are the same just harder. and there are many levels and they are not repetitive every story is different and has plot twists and they really make me think. There are in app purchases but they are worth it for 5.99 you can get unlimited clues( that do help ) and unlimited coffee and no ads I would get it. And there are not an insane amount of ads either not like in other games when you finish a game and there’s an ad every 30 seconds there are very few and honestly I just turn off my wifi the game is offline so that works. Great game must get. If you are looking for 5 minute mystery’s then this is not your game this game really makes you think and the hard levels take a while but they are worth your time so trust me and get it.

This game is beyond amazing! I’ve been playing it for a while now and it is SO addictive. It’s not like other games where you don’t do anything and the game solves it for you, you have to think, you have to make sure you don’t miss any details and you get to solve realistic cases with amazing plots! There are NOT a lot of adds, there are a few here and there but not like other games where you get an add every 30 seconds. There are in app purchases but it doesn’t constantly ask you to buy it which I appreciate. The best part is that you get all the information you would need to solve the case but it’s vague so it makes you think. You can also play with your friends, I like to get some friends and solve a case together, we go back and forth sharing different theories. The game does run down your battery pretty fast but if that doesn’t bother you then this is overall a great game! So trust me and download it RIGHT NOW!

This game is really well done and is the best murder mystery game app I’ve found. I love how there are different difficulty levels and how you actually have to piece together the clues to solve the crime. I am also SO grateful that there aren’t all sorts of things you have to buy to properly play the game. You can buy clues if you choose, but you can also watch a video, which is awesome. And you aren’t forced to get clues either (although they do help on those extremely tough cases). There’s a nice variety of actions and clues for each case as well, so it doesn’t feel like you’re basically repeating the same thing over and over. There is one small nitpick I have—while I definitely appreciate that it gets down to the nitty gritty right away for each mystery, I do kind of wish that we’d get just a bit more story. Who was the victim, besides just her name? Tell me a little more about the killer and his motives. What happened after he was caught? How does that lead into the next scene, etc. Just a tad more information—a little bit of a plot line would draw me in a bit more and make me feel more connected to what’s going on. In any case, keep up the good work! I’m still making my way through this one but already can’t wait to play the next!

I cannot tell you how long I’ve waited for a game like this. I’ve only had this game for about 15 minutes, but first impressions mean a LOT—and I can tell you that this game is an absolute winner. These scenarios you’re given to solve are very realistic, and the music adds a nice, suspenseful touch. And so far, there’s no payment needed! No subscriptions! It’s such a relief! Ads don’t bother you either—you get to choose if you want to watch an ad to receive a clue, which I do all the time. It’s honestly the best!! But like I said, I’ve only had this app for a short time, but I haven’t found anything wrong yet! Thank you for making such an excellent game for us mystery fanatics! 🔍

excellent mystery game
i love love LOVE mystery games—ones that present you with a puzzle, a story, and ask you to solve it. you can interrogate people, look for clues, etc. unfortunately, there seems to be a lack of them on the app store but THIS ONE. this one is SO GOOD. i would appreciate something like it with more varied cases, instead of an overarching storyline… but the story is SO GOOD that i can’t really complain too much. if you like solving mysteries & games that aren’t too obvious about the answers, get this! (& there are minimal ads, too—always a lovely bonus. though i admit i watch a lot because as much as i LOVE games like these i’m. fairly bad at them & need some clues sometimes xD)

Great game... truly is, but I can not continue to play...
For anyone looking to buy the game don’t read further as it contains spoilers First off, Devs... I have never ever commented or rated a game. EVER! But this game was something special. While I don’t have the money to donate, I wish I could. What an incredible game, the story the detail, everything about it is captivating, but I feel killing off the secondary protagonist, Natalie, was the only mistake. I assume that the point was to increase the want to catch the twins, but I feel that her dying should have been like: “the bad ending”, and there should have been a way to keep her alive. I really got connected to the two main characters, and bc of this I am probably not going to continue playing, as the death of the other protagonist hit me pretty hard. Know that I am not at all saying the game is bad... the fact that I was able to get so engrossed in the story is a testament to the outstanding development. I just wish I had the option to go back and continue the story with the partners together in investigating. PS the Fibonacci detail was my favorite part.

Different But Lacking
First, I really like that the game is about deductive reasoning and logic and not a find-it. The game is definitely interesting and requires a good bit of thought. However, I think that the questioning needs to be a little more detailed if the conclusion is going to require specific details. For example (trying not to give spoilers): in the 4th murder, I was asked *how* the victim was smuggled, but the questioning never revealed how the supplies came in- thus, I had to guess. It would be nice when the conclusions have multiple questions for me to answer, if the game would give credit for a partially correct answer. Overall, I’ll keep playing because the storyline is interesting, but I do wish the questioning was more detailed There are also several typos in various places that are really distracting

I have been enjoying this app so far! Also SPOILERS!
I haven’t played much of the game yet but I will say the one “Voice On The Phone” should still let you investigate the other people and look at evidence even after Andrea “commits suicide” because how would you figure out the fisher man was the killer before she “KH”. Within the time it gives you before she “KH” you would miss half of the evidence that helps you figure out who the killer was. In real life you would still be able to interview the neighbors and friends after Andrea’s death. I know you can just replay the investigation after you fail, but when you do that you can get confused and lead to dead ends.

This game is very interesting. It took me two days to get through round 3 😭so far, it’s had a very wide variety of cases to solve, and I love it. It’s also a game based on timing. You have to go through such things in a certain time and understand it. Coming from someone who loves Sherlock, and the Science of Deduction, this game satisfies the need for more. I think there should be a bit more personal though. Like, maybe you get to enter your name, and you’re referred to as that by the other detectives or whatnot. Maybe customize the background color. It’ll make it seem more personal and intriguing. This game is nearly perfect, I recommend.

Absolutely amazing!!! Please Read
I never ever write reviews but this game is worth it. It seems to be very underrated. I’ve never played a game as unique as this one. It doesn’t take energy or ask for money. If you need a hint and don’t want to pay then they give you 30 sec ads to watch. The levels are all different difficulty and some will be easier than others but that’s one thing I loved about it. I’m going to donate to them because I can’t wait for new levels to come out. Seriously if you come across this game, download it! You won’t regret it. The story line is amazing. The developers did an amazing job.

Okay you need to download this app
This was an amazing game and app I love this game I can't wait to try the others I am still playing the first one it is amazing so far, my favorite character so far is Nikita volvok. I love how the creators put the crime scenes together and made it difficult for the player, so they would have to think out side of the box. You have the idea of what a detective does at the end they give you a reason why they died. My favorite game I play it as much as I can. I recommend if you were gonna get a murder mystery get this game, and leave a 5 star review.

Early review
I’m going to go ahead and give this game five stars. Even though I only just downloaded it and started playing. I already like the way this is set up. I’m looking forward the the challenges becoming increasingly harder as we go. The only suggestion that I might make, is that the developers add a notepad. A place where you can jot down notes as you are investigating the case. As a real detective would. Save me from having to either carry around my own notepad, or swap back and forth from this add to the notes on my phone. Just a suggestion, but otherwise great game so far.

***somewhat spoiler*** I love these puzzles it’s one of the first ones I’ve spent a lot of time on, it’s a lot like an escape room in a more realistic sense compared to most games. I kinda wish we could’ve saved Natalie, i immediately fell in love with her character, I was bawling like a baby when she died. I definitely think this game could be a lot better if there was a way to change it so she doesn’t die, add on, another part, choices changing outcomes. Overall amazing game. Would definitely recommend this game to my friends.

This game is amazing
This game is amazing I love how you have clues and how you get to question the people who were last seen I have a journal and I have been writing almost EVERYTHING and notes and it helps me get it. When I get older I want to be a detective crime investigator and this game was right for me it’s so realistic. You even have a map you need to unlock to get the others by completing investigations first u start off with easy,medium,hard. Super fun and enjoyed it. 100% recommended please make more games like this

Unique and Amazing!
Yes, I’m really going to start out by saying I never ever leave a review. I don’t even rate the games I have played. This game is really amazing and challenging. There are a few grammatical mistakes and I thought some of the puzzles could have been a bit easier. Though, thinking back, I probably missed the option that supplied the missing info. Seriously, thank you for developing this game and writing this story. It reminded me a little bit of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, in the best way. It’s a dark, challenging, story.

Great Game. Only 2 suggestions/ comments❤️
I have so much fun playing this! I could play it for hours, however I have a few suggestions and comments to make it even more enjoyable. First, on the one of the levels, while I was looking into the case it got cut off to add a part to the case and I was unable to go back and finish the evidence I was looking into. While it did eliminate some options I wish I was able to eliminate them by myself, as I wasn’t confident in my conclusion due to this. Also, if there was a way to take notes and/ or mark what evidence you’ve already viewed, that would make gameplay much more enjoyable, as you could keep track of what you believed to be important and/or keep track of what you’ve already looked into. As stated before the game is extremely fun, and these are only little things to make it easier and more fun. And it’s definitely worth the download if you enjoy criminal investigation and related topics👍

Purchase Not Going Through
This is mostly to the developers, because I bought unlimited clues a week ago, the order went through, yet I didn’t get any clues? I spent $6.48, and I have a receipt, so why didn’t I get anything? Either give my clues, or give me a refund. And the ironic part is that I can’t even restore purchases. Just give me my money back or something, I don’t even care. It’s a shame, because I really liked your game. I only wish the purchases actually worked. To anyone that wants to buy something, a word of advice, you’re wasting your money on this. Literally. Because you won’t get anything out of it. If any developer is reading this, I have a receipt and a screenshot if you want to get back to me. But I’m not holding on to any hopes.

This Is Honestly One Of My Favorite Games
This game is actually so much fun. The puzzle rang in levels from Easy - Medium - Hard - Very Hard - Master - Grandmaster and there are so many different levels that it’s hard to get bored. I will admit that at certain points the game can get really difficult, how it’s still a lot of fun. The storyline throughout the game was really well thought out, and I would certainly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys Murder Mystery type games.

I think the logical explanation should be there that how we could have reached to the conclusion. I mean for example, in the last case the fisherman became suspect when he reported to police that he heard gunshot from house of Andrea and the gun of Andrea had a silencer. Also 1 shot was fired from Andrea’s gun and 3 people were killed from the gun (unless Andrea used differently gun to kill her friends). I think this type of discussion at the end will be highly welcomed.

It has potential but the controls are not good
The only way to move from one item/room/person to another is by investigating and hoping an option pops up to investigate the thing you want. On the third mystery something happened and now I can’t even continue investigating the scene properly (such as questioning the neighbors) because the options no longer lead to that. I wish there was a drop down so you could select what area to investigate. I can’t solve the third mystery now without completely guessing because I can’t go back to talk to the neighbors.

Deserves credit
I finally found a new mixer-mystery-crime game that’s completely different than the rest. Not what I expected when I first downloaded it, but after playing for a day and finishing the first play-through, I am just amazed. I love the story line because in reality things happen and not everything goes well but it’s an experience like no other. I hope they continue with more play thoughts because it’s quite interesting.

A Must Play for all Mystery Lovers
This is a really interesting game. The cases start off very easy, and eventually get harder. I just finished the Hong Kong levels, and I loved how I could go back and choose different actions to see the other endings. This game is still really fun and one of the best mystery apps I’ve tried, so it’s definitely worth playing. I will definitely be downloading Murder Mystery 2 when the App Store has it.

Pretty good
You’re not free to move back and forth in the investigation. The game doesn’t always allow you to go back to a line of questioning that you didn’t finish or missed. So you have to conclude the investigation, get it wrong and then you can start over. Cumbersome. The game is fun and makes you think. I do recommend it. Unlike some other reviewers I like that you can write things down. You must hold the facts in your head and put it all together. More challenging.

Strong start, but...
I was pretty excited about a game where you actively deducted crimes out for yourself instead of doing “find a clue”. But the game ends up leaving behind “whodunnits” to take a more psychological thriller aspect after the London arc. If you enjoy that sort of thing, then this is the game for you. Me! Its specifically the “whodunnit” of it all that compels me in the genre. The fact we abandon murder mysteries for “find a missing brother” for secrets about a character I never much cared for in the first place left me really bored, even if it’s done very well.

Improbable Case Solving
I like the idea of this game but I deleted app after solving first case. SPOILER (1st case): A woman dies in a car accident, 4 suspects only with two of her small children as two of the suspects (lol). Ok, you can then assume you have only 2 suspects. The game gives you a clue without asking for it, saying her husband has been in “years ago” for domestic violence. You can’t really find out more info regarding suspects or overall crime scene. You put in the husband as the culprit and boom, you solved a case! Game needs more writing. Who, what, where, why? You can’t accuse someone of committing a murder due to their violent past.

I am in love with this game. It not like all the other one that are all easy you actually have to look through every single piece of information to solve the mystery I have already done three when I first downloaded and the third one literally took me a hour to do and I was so happy when I cracked the case. I RECOMMEND THIS GAME 10/10

Good game
Hi- I downloaded the game recently and it was fun! The cases were interesting and it gets intense. I gave this game three stars because the clues aren't always helpful and there's a bug in the "Shroud of Darkness" chapter. The first two correct answers were accepted, however the correct answer for the third one was not. (Verified this by using a hint, which gave the answer.) Tried restarting my phone and reinstalling the game but neither worked. Hope this helped, and have a nice day. :)

Amazing Twists and Story
The story is unique, takes interesting twists unique to this game alone. The game requires some thinking to solve pop up questions, inferences, to continue that actually keeps you interested and challenge along the progress of the story. Characters are not “plot protected” in a sense making anything possible to the imagination when danger arises in the story. Love the game, hope it continues.

evocative and clever gameplay
I did not have expectations, but I was happy to have given this a chance. Smart, methodical and a sense of urgency that keeps the back beat of the game driving forward as new clues and evidence become known or surface unexpectedly, the real world intangible become evident and critical especially if you are not on your toes and enthralled in the case. Bravo. I am eager to continue after my first 5 cases.

Amazing Gem
I was looking for some detective games and downloaded this game without any expectations but was incredibly surprised by how well written and thought out it was. The team must be extraordinary to say the least. I’m disappointed more people haven’t found this game yet, because I’ve been playing nonstop and am currently waiting for the next chapters. Overall, great story, great graphics, great UI, everything is great. I would change the app icon though. I will definitely be looking forward for more cases as well as more games from the developers. Also PS , but I sincerely hope this story becomes a television series or something because I can definitely see it as one.

This is the first game that ever made me feel like a real criminal analyst/detective! I appreciate all the effort the creator made in designing believable crime scenes and deep, complex characters.

Even in my second playthrough of the series, I still get stumped and can’t figure out all the details. 😅 Can’t wait to see more from this developer!

Fun to Play! Really Hard, Makes Me Think
I like this game a lot. The plot lines are interesting and the cases are not easy. One recommendation - can there be a Notebook feature added that will record notes and conversations or important clues you find along the way? It’s hard to guess the mystery when you’re constantly having to go back and forth between screens to remember what people said or important facts.

Highly addicting game
The game is really addicting, and unlike the other detective games out there, it makes you use your brain instead of just being pay to win. The only problem I have is that I sometimes get a little lost in the storyline. I think to help this, it would be good to add a summary after each level for the events leading up to the following levels.

Love this game but.....
Love this game but I purchased clues and have not been credited for them. Typically, when you purchase things they are credited immediately. Is there some kind of waiting period with this app? After reading other reviews, I saw that his has happened To someone else and they were instructed to use the “Restore Purchases” button. I tried that and it didn’t work either.

Would be good except flaws/glitches
Just like other reviews, I got to “Someone Sinister” and there was no way to proceed as it very quickly kept reporting the mission failed and John left the room. I was only able to play for a few minutes before the app was no longer playable. Also I recommend some type of menu during the investigations because navigating is tedious and some won’t let you go back to review certain evidence.
