Great game, high quality

This game was fantastic! One of the best actual free to play point & click games on the app store, I think it even compares to paid varieties. I played it for an hour or so a few nights in a row before I finished it, so not super short! The variety of puzzles were great, not too hard but still made you think. The story was original. Cutscene graphics were good for a free mobile game (I would compare to PS2 graphics) the game scenes themselves were very detailed and it was easy to see where you could click, and it being fully voiced was a nice touch not seen too often.

Great story & graphics but puzzles too easy

I have absolutely loved FIVE-BN STUDIOs games. I played all the Lost Lands (my favorite games!), Legendary Tales (my second favorite), and Darkness & Flame (my third fave). When I was finished with those, I was excited to play more games from the company but the others (New York Mystery & Legacy ones) haven’t lived up to Lost Lands or Legendary Tales. They have the same large map area where you go back to previous areas to finish things and great graphics, but the puzzles are WAY TOO EASY. For one, there are a bunch of puzzles where you just match 2 images (turn the blocks over & match the images). That’s fine for 1 puzzle but there were quite a few like that in these New York Mysteries and Legacy ones. For two, a lot of the puzzles just take no effort. For example, there were a few puzzles where you had to put the lines all in the center and I had just started moving 2 of them and BOOM, it was finished. I thought, well that was lucky. But it happened again just the same on other puzzles. If you don’t have to put any effort in and think about it, it’s not really fun IMHO. These are fine for someone who thinks the other games are hard or maybe just starting off with games like this. But, if you’re like me and have played a ton of games like these, I don’t think you’d find the puzzles very fun. The story and graphics are great though.

This game is solid. Great graphics, nice to have snippets of video when interacting with characters, love that you have to figure out what to do next and how to use the items that you find. Wasn’t too puzzle heavy, but definitely had enough to complete. The storyline is the only thing that I’m wary of; the plot has the promise of being a good story line, but clarity of what is happening overall and the conclusion could be way better. Honestly I still don’t really understand what the story was about or why certain things were happening (unconscious mafia & green slime??). Overall worth the play for sure! Will check out the second game :)
