Murder! description

The forgotten quest about the murder investigation, which must take place under strict time constraints.

The plot is as follows. You're a detective, called to the mansion where the murder occurred. The killer is definitely one of those who in this house is (and the people there not so little). Time to solve the crime you have two hours real time. If you do not manage to do that in the mansion there is a new murder. The game takes place in real time, the goal is to find the killer and the murder weapon.

Available methods – removal of fingerprints from objects, conversations with people (all the information is recorded in a notebook), but I have to warn you that in conversations occurs and the mass of useless information – there is a chance to learn or even to "reveal" some intrigue or conspiracy, but with the main goal – search for murderers – this is not.

The game in terms of complexity is a kind of paradox: on the one hand, if you set the conversation to "need a wave" (with luck, of course), then each character can quickly lead to clean water, because to lie they did not know how; on the other, there are many suspects, and conversations can get very long, and we have little time, so you can win very fast or lose.

Graphics are similar to other similar games (each room of the mansion is presented in a isometric perspective in the left part of the screen) and is good, but the interface is quite difficult to master. Verdict – clearly not the best game in the "niche" detective quests where the random factor is too strong, but, nevertheless, it is worthy of the attention of fans of virtual investigations.
