Did the actress do it for revenge using a handgun as the powder on the pillow suggests?
Or maybe it was the politician, but did he use the knife or the chainsaw? Was it out of sheer madness or was it for power? for love? Or simply money? The next clue might be decisive...

Ads not constant, could be slightly more clever

This game is perfect for when your brain needs a break for a few minutes. If you are paying attention you can usually figure out the number pattern. One small suggestion would be to make the clues more logical. For example, in one game finding a broken bone ruled out blunt force trauma (the wrench), but left open to speculation poison, gun, knife, molatov, or chainsaw? I understand that this is most likely random, but if not....
Another suggestion is to offer the option to make a guess like in Clue, but if you are wrong, you forfeit (or have to watch comercials).
A final suggestion is to steer clear of the commercials with forced sound. If I need my volume on, which I frequently do, I can't play your game for fear of the disturbance to others (or silently watch your commercials, which is your profit).
I do enjoy the game for what it is.

Developer Response ,

Great feedback lightweight time waster: we love your suggestions. As for the forced sound in ads, there should always be a way to cut it, we'll investigate that. Also you can try using the switch on your device. You know, the little switch that puts the phone on silent/vibration mode. Don't hesitate to contact support@ooblada.com for further assistance on that front.

Fun take on logic puzzle, but silly restrictions make it frustrating

This is a fun take on the picture logic puzzle. However, as a long time player of those puzzles, I find a few of the ‘features’ to be highly annoying. The limit on the number of traffic cones you have (to block of spaces that you know can’t be filled) seems arbitrary, slows down the game, and makes the puzzles more tedious than they need to be. Having to ration these markers forces you to keep more in your head unnecessarily. It is like making a sudoku game where you are only allowed to make tentative ‘pencil’ marks for odd numbers. Sure, it makes the game more challenging, but not in a fun way.

I also dislike the instant health loss for a mis -click. If you are dragging to fill a group of 8 and accidentally drag a square too far on your small screen, you are immediately penalized. As someone experienced with this type of puzzle, I could zip through the early puzzles easily but have to go much more slowly than I should have to in order to prevent this. I realize that the mechanic of hiding extra things behind boxes made the developers not want to only have this check only at the end of the puzzle. However it currently has been a great annoyance to me. Perhaps consider something like allowing users to lock in individual rows or columns and penalize them/reveal items at that time.

Decent game, terrible gameplay choices

This game is decent, at least it was, until I completed the tutorial. In the Academy missions, the game is simple: check boxes, place cones, solve cases; but after completing the tutorial, everything changes. Now I only have a certain amount of “energy” (I don’t know what it’s called in the game) to actually play the game and I only have a certain amount of cones/flags. In a game where placing cones is so you don’t accidentally click a false tile and to help reveal the answer, having limited tiles doesn’t really make sense. And in a game, having a certain amount of “energy” doesn’t make sense either. As a developer you want people to continuously play your game to make the most money. But with “energy”, once I run out I have to wait to play and I already have to wait when I try to analyze a clue. The third problem I have with this, is health. In the academy missions, you are ranked by stars. You start with 3, and every time you get a wrong tile, you lose one. But in Miami, I click two wrong tiles and my health is now gone and I have to restart. Not three like normal. Two. Health, along with everything else, is what games like this shouldn’t have. You shouldn’t have timers when other features already are timed. You shouldn’t restrict us from playing if we ever run out of “energy.” And you shouldn’t just change the amount of tiles we can get wrong out of nowhere. Decent idea, terrible execution.
