◆ Story
Jane is stunned that the first people who want to stay at the lodging house she opened are all strange.

William Holmes is a self-proclaimed 'Consulting Detective'.

Jane had never heard of that kind of job before and honestly wanted to turn him away, but her young age made it hard to gather people to stay at her lodge, so it was hard to turn him away.

Seeing how torn Jane was, Watson, another gentleman who wanted to stay at her lodging house, suggested she use this opportunity to have him solve a case and see him at work with her own eyes…

This is a parallel Holmes’ pastiche coloring the end of the century backdrop.

I first played this game when it was originally released by Think-a Ltd. That was several years ago (c. 2013). At some point, the old version of the game was taken down. It was replaced with this one. While the content is the same, the method for progressing through the game is different. Like with most HUNEX CO., LTD. games, a ticketing system is used. This one gives 75 free tickets per day. Each ticket is use to read one dialogue box of text. More free tickets can be obtained by watching free videos. Tickets may also be purchased.

The old version was much like this one, except there was no ticketing system. I could play through the entire game in one day, if I so desired. While the new ticket system is annoying, the game is still free. It is also not difficult to acquire more tickets, simply time consuming. Still, I did prefer the old version. All other features are more-or-less the same, though I believe the old one had more save/load slots. I have also realized, after getting halfway through one route, that the CGs are no longer present, nor is there a way to view the non-existent images.

Onto what I really wish to discuss. Will the sequel ever be translated? I cannot read Japanese. Sometimes I wish I could, so that I could play more games. In fact, the sequel is on the App Store. However, it is in Japanese. Will it ever be translated? I would not mind using the ticket system, if I could just finish the game series. I have been waiting for years. Please, if you wish to translate another game, pick London Detective Story 2 as your next project.

Though I may have been complaining about the ticket system, I am grateful for the HUNEX CO., LTD. localizations. Without them, I would not be able to play a genre of games I enjoy. They are even free. Please, keep up the great work!

“London Detective”

The problem with the new version is that the game quits unexpectedly while clicking on dialogues.

Amazing story!! P.S I normally don't write reviews!

First off, love anything Sherlock Holmes. I could picture Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law voice acting in this game. They are amazing actors, especially in Sherlock Holmes. Buying the full game is worth the price to me. I really felt involved with the choices that I made, like I was in the story solving the puzzles. That doesn't happen to me very often. I really hope you make a part 2!! However I wish you could have fleshed out the storyline of how Jane and Holmes started dating. Maybe I just missed that part but it felt like it randomly happened and I'm sitting here like,( oh, what? We're dating now? Hm, alright then...). Other than that, its perfect! I can't beg you enough to make part 2! Moriarty must be stopped! I honestly thought James was the culprit. Lol. Great job everyone! Now to play some more of your games (=^_^=).
