Murder Files is a detective game in which you will have to investigate a large list of mysteries that need answers in order to solve the murder of the Mayor of a quiet village, Little Riddle. Mystery and research are combined in this fascinating and unique title for your Chrome web browser. Uncover the necessary clues for solving this crime and conclude another successful case for the Blue Toad Detective Agency.
First of all and once you have downloaded the game file, you will have to choose between the four available characters. This choice does not affect the game's events at all, so be free to pick the one you like the most. The story is told that you, as a detective for Blue Toad Agency, have been recommended to take some holiday by Mother, the boss of this agency. However, in the train station of Little Riddle, you will immediately be put at test with a simple quiz that will test your text comprehension with a fragment of a newspaper. Then you will meet the Mayor of the village for the first and last time, after which you will end up looking for some answers to this whodunnit mystery.
In Murder Files you will look for all the answers to this whodunnit mystery
Murder Files follows a simple line of action. Firstly, you will need to talk with Little Riddle citizens in order to gather some clues that will help you with your investigation, and secondly you will be requested to solve some puzzles to get a clearer view of some of the title’s important events. For example, one of the puzzles will be to decipher the Mayor’s diary or to correctly assemble the Mayor’s maze like a jigsaw.
Funny and challenging
One of the hallmarks of this game is the narrator and character’s exaggerated British accent. If you ever wonder what it must have been like in the Sherlock Holmes Victorian era, with Murder Files you can have a little insight. We have to make special mention of the narrator who makes some jokes about the events with a very English sense of humor, together with other characters on the story.
The title is divided on six different episodes that develop the story focusing on different events. This way, the atmosphere, has been correctly developed with additional characters and the final mysteries. The real thing is that Murder Files can be sorted as an interactive novel, since the gameplay is restricted to some actions, like the puzzles you are requested and the places you want to go from a list.
In this sense, Relentless Software, the company that developed Murder Files, could have included more action for the player, such as being able to directly control the main character as you can in the graphic adventure genre. However, it is not really an issue to pick fault as this clever detective game is perfect for those gamers that want to recall old classic adventures revived with new graphics.
