Are you a fan of mysterious stories? On my side; yes, I am, especially the Hitchcock movies and novels are my any time favorite. These days technology has changed and we can enjoy what we have seen on big screens right inside your smartphones or tablets. Here is Murder Detective 2, an edge-of-the-seat thriller for your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
Before stepping into the review have a look at our review for Murder Detective first edition. It is time to detective Phil to come in action and find out the victim behind a murder that happened in Lynton church. As like the first edition Murder Detective 2 is made with brilliant graphics and sound effects that elevate the mood like a real crime investigator.
You will never get bored with the story as it is really thrilling. The interactions are short between the game characters while the hidden object games are interesting enough to kill your time. The story progresses through healthy interaction between the detective Phil, his colleague, the priest, etc.
Apart from the interesting and interactive storytelling, the app has some twisting puzzles to clear some stages. Sadly, the app misses providing clues to the players especially in the puzzle solving regions, which is sometimes harder to solve. The app has enticing locations with matching background sounds that create the feel like we are investigating a crime in real!
I have stuck many times in the game especially in solving the puzzles without any clues on how to move on. I am sure the developers may be worried about this issue and provided a way to let them know the scene where players have stopped playing the game. It would be great if they can provide any clues within the app so that players can move on with the same thrill.
Murder Detective 2 is a complete package of thrill and excitement from the initial scene itself. It is not just a story, but a collection of some good puzzles as well. You can download the app from the App Store for $2.99
