There’s been a horrific crime and the only person with the skills to solve it is you. Criminal Case: The Conspiracy pits you against an increasingly complex series of puzzles to find objects and clues and get to the bottom of murder most fowl.
This is actually the fifth ‘season’ of Criminal Case so those people familiar with the prequels will be returning to the (somewhat crime-riddled) city of Grimsborough.
As the title suggests, the string of murders lead you into a shocking conspiracy, with a fun narrative leading you through a series of hidden object games and puzzles.
Some of the time that will require you to find, say, a chameleon in a Zoo-scape, whilst others you’ll be slotting key evidence back together to retrieve a vital clue to the perpetrator.
When you’ve gathered enough evidence, you will have to pick the right person to arrest. Mess up? Don’t worry too much – there are always opportunities to replay the cases and pick up the rewards.
The story rattles along at pace as you earn stars for your detective skills by considering autopsy results, spotting clues and working out what nefarious deeds are occurring.
So, magnifying glasses to the ready! Where’s that chameleon?
