The Scoop description

Detective quest based on the story by Agatha Christie.

Playing for the reporter entrusted with the investigation of the murder of another reporter (from a rival newspaper). The third person, about the gameplay, it is difficult to say something special: the essence of the game is to explore the city (he's not that big) and chatting with various people (sometimes some of them are hard to catch in place, then it is necessary to seek or wait for him at home, for example) and learn from them all kinds of useful and not so facts about the crime.

However - interesting moments too. So, the dialogues are quite interactive, meaning that we not only hear, but can and do ask questions (including a few "aggressive" - for example, whether the interlocutor is an alibi for the time of the murder). In addition, the game has a moment like eavesdropping: if we're lucky, we can overhear the conversation one NPC to another (is responsible for this option). If it was done, then in a future conversation with him will have the opportunity to choose additional topics (about things which we overheard). But just in case keep in mind that the game is time limited, it is, especially given the fact that it is not easy, sometimes severely hampered.

Graphically it looks at least acceptable (although the palette is mostly dark, but even better, perhaps) in General – a thing for everybody. Particularly interesting this game can not name, but fans of any detective quests will certainly have to taste.
