Leave No Stone Unturned
Being an avid lover of detective games, I had to play this one when I came across it. Found on Yahoo! Games, Detective Grimoire is a first-person detective game that leaves players to solve a murder mystery in an amusement park.
Game Basics - You are young Detective Grimoire who is assigned to find out who killed the janitor at the old amusement park in town. You have to navigate through the park, questioning everyone who works there, searching for clues, and keeping track of everything. You have all of your trusty tools - your notebook, a clue keeper, and more to help you out. To navigate through the game, you use your mouse and click on the arrows at the bottom of the screen. You can also mouse over items in the game area to check them out, and when you come across something that might help you out, or that you need to check out, you will see text pop up at the bottom of the screen to help you know what to do.
You also have to question all of the people that you come across in the game and even catch them lying to you to get the right answers out of them, which is actually the most challenging part of the game.
The game does take a bit, and you can not save it, so if you leave the game for any reason - you get to start over, which stinks. But, it is fun to figure out by going through all the right steps and you can accuse anyone at any time to see their reactions!
Graphics - The graphics are just ok. The lines are all big and there is not too much detail in the main scenes. But, in the areas that need the smaller detail, the game does not let you down. You can see everything you need to see really clearly and the colors and lines do not bleed together. But, for a free to play game with such a detailed and long story line, they are good.
Overall, I'm going to give Detective Grimoire a 4 out of 5 only because the game doesn't save and the graphics could be a bit better. But, I would recommend that anyone that likes Detective games head over to Yahoo! Games and check it out!
