The Murdered by Midnight board game can now be enjoyed anywhere on the go. Either play with friends or family around the world. Be the first to deduce the murderer, murder weapon, motive and time of death to solve the murder and win the game!

The story takes place in the 1920’s in a fabulous Art Deco mansion, Briarwood Manor. The owners have gathered six world famous detectives and several of their friends and family to throw a “murder party”, where they’ll stage a mock murder for the detectives to solve as entertainment… as was all the rage in the 20’s.

Unfortunately, things get all too real when someone commits an actual murder before the party gets started. Can you follow the clues and bring the guilty to justice before time runs out?

EASY TO PLAY, HARD TO MASTER - During a turn each player can: move to a new location, search for weapons, dust for prints, perform forensics analysis or ask a witness what they saw or who they suspect. Using these clues, the player can deduce the murderer, murder weapon, motive and time of death.

A Wonderful Twist on Clue!

First off, this is a wonderful game and very well implemented. If you like Clue, you’ll like this. The app runs smoothly and the interface is pretty easy to use. As a bonus, one purchase opens the game on all devices, including Apple TV and Mac! Also, the Apple TV app doesn’t require a controller. I have one, but sometimes it’s just easier to keep playing with the remote you use for the TV.

Now there are some minor issues that I’m sure can be worked out. First, the text is microscopic. Not just on the phone, it is difficult on a 55” TV, and even on a 13” MacBook Pro. Once you get to know the characters, however, you don’t need to read as much. Secondly, the touch zones are a little off. It took me many tries to open my notebook rather than the map. Finally, the narration sounds like a 10 year old speech to text program with an Australian accent. It’s actually kinda funny and you can turn it off if you hate it.

Overall, it is still well worth the purchase price!

Developer Response ,

First, glad to hear that you are enjoying the game.

We'll take a look at that text issue again, thought we had it fixed... Looks like a few edge cases slid through. And yes, the touch zones got a bit crazy near the Log Book and Map buttons. As a temporary "fix" if you tap/click slightly above the Log Book, it will open every time.

We knew the speech synthesis narration would be a polarizing feature. You'll either find it funny or it will drive you nuts hence the ability to switch it off.

Thanks for the thoughtful feedback, we really appreciate it and are dedicated to making the game better. If you have any more ideas to improve the game, please contact us on the Appracatappra website and we'll see what we can do.

Issues from at least a year ago not fixed.

If I could give this half a star I would.
I looked at this game several times and thought why not. Surely by now they've addressed these issues that other reviewers/players have brought up...... BIG NOPE! The text is microscopic and impossible to read on an iphone. The touch zones on the notebook and the map have not been resolved.
Such a shame. I really was looking forward to playing this Clue like variant but instead ended up returning it -- even if it only cost me less than a buck. I'd rather put those 99 cents towards a developer more attentive on delivering reliable playthrough on their games.
You waste people's time with stuff like this.

Feels like a scam

Tried to play this with family on multiplayer mode but it did not send the invite to anyone. We were all connected to wifi with our Bluetooth on and nothing worked. You can only play single player mode.
