I played this “iLogic – Crimes” game over the weekend on my iPad. It is similar to the boardgame Cluedo. The game lets you play as an investigator in different crime scenes. You need to find out who is the criminal or culprit by interviewing the suspects. There are three playable crime scenes while the other game scenes need extra points to unlock in order to play them.
The suspects will answer your questions and the answers will be logged in the log book. You can look at the answers they give you before deciding on who is the culprit of the crime scene. After you have decided on the culprit, you can do an accusation by tapping on the “Accuse” button. Sometimes, your decision may be a wrong one. If your decision is correct, you will win points to be used to unlock the new crime scenes.
The game introduce the how-to-play instructions in a book manner. You can easily flip the instructions like a book to get an understanding on how to play the game. It is a pretty simple to play game for the young and old. Even for the newcomers who have not played Cluedo will be able to pick up the basics of playing this game in no time.
The game is available in two languages – English and Deutsch. What I like about the game is that the developer has put in place some clues in the game introduction. The rest is up to you to decide who is the real culprit. I did have fun interviewing the suspects as the answers give me clues on who to suspect.
The game also have a wide variety of suspects with different characters. It makes the guesswork more difficult for you in the gameplay. If you can guess the suspect in the shortest amount of time, you will gain some bonus points.
What I dislike about this game is that it does not show the game scores you have accumulated while you playing the game levels. It should show me the scores so that I know when I can unlock the new levels inside the game.
Overall, I feel this game does help to keep me busy as the guesswork is not simple. You can kill some time playing this game when you waiting for a bus or train. It is one of those casual games that need investigative skills and you can pick up the gameplay in the least amount of time.
