... but he also attac!

There's been a murder! In this detective game, you:

  • Sneak past guards (and/or attac them) to get into crime scenes. Don't let them get you so you'll have more time to investigate!
  • Use your tools at the crime scene to detec the clues.  You can take another look if you have time.
  • Look at your clues and deduce who's guilty.


Enemies will look your way when you're close enough. Escape their field of vision, or if you're right next to them, immediately move into them to discombobulate (that's a thing old-timey detectives do, right?) them; otherwise, they'll catch you, and you'll have to start again. You lose time whenever this happens.

Push tools onto evidence to gather clues. Matching more objects and evidence gives you a better clue. When you're out of time (restarts) or succeed,  you move on to the next level.

Compare the clues to the suspects' traits to find the killer. Click the red exclamation point next to the suspect's portrait in the clues window to accuse them.
