    Intriguing, Different and Twice the Fun

    Post by JustTheFacts on Mon May 07, 2018 12:04 am

    In Brief (Based on demo)


    This one is a treat.


    Along with all those wonderful things we have come to expect from those quirky guys and gals at Eipex, like great graphics, varied and imaginative HOPs and puzzles that challenge but don’t destroy all hope, and a dozen great reasons to buy the CE – collectibles, morphing objects (in HOPs), achievements, replayables, helpful strategy guide, pix and sound and videos and souvenir room - there is a new twist.


    Two characters to play! Now, we have seen that before. But not like this. At the beginning, the player chooses whether Mum or Dad tells the tale. And the tale is genuinely experienced differently (throughout the entire demo at least). Without giving too much away; who goes to jail differs on the basis of who you chose at the beginning. I checked. I am really intrigued about the rest of the tale! Did they write two completely different stories?


    The theme for this new series is, obviously, murder. It has a murder board where you accumulate clues and draw conclusions. Based on them, you move to the next stage. I did find putting up the clues physically a pain. Not hard to work out what to do, but the actual placement of the clues onto the board was counterintuitive and fussy.
    I did like the general presentation of the game, with its new multi-layered and angled close up boxes, and the unusual styles for the cursor. It gave the game a unique feel. And I loved the voice of the cabbie.



    In all, I am very happy to recommend this game, in CE, for those looking for class and variety.

    It is most important to me to announce that I have contributed my very own terminology to the Reviewer Lexicon. Happy bounce  Belly laugh

    Found this choice phrase in another person's review of this game:

    CE bling also includes a timed mahjong game, replayable HOs & puzzles, souvenir room, collectibles, plus the usual. Wink


    PS. Missed the mahjong game completely! OH!
