What the people say about 'Who Is The Killer?' game series:
'Best investigation game I've played so far! Feels so real!' (Tia00)
'It's not like those one way stories, it really gives you the freedom to investigate by yourself!' (abighoul)
'Just when you think you know who the killer is, your suspect is found dead!' (Moonwave2315)
'A really unique game which gives you a real sense of deduction!' (nicholas derecourt)
This original game is based on classical english detective rules. Everyday someone dies and you need to figure out who is the killer. Everybody has a common mystery story of the past. Everybody could have a motive to do this. And you have only seven days to stop the murderer.
It is not a generic adventure game — there is no happy end in this scenario, you can either win or lose the game (if everybody dies).
Speak with characters, investigate crime scenes, guess who lies, look at your dreams to find clues and try to arrest the killer before it’s too late.
— A new murder every day
— Several original mini-games
— Old mystery background story
— Original gameplay for those who like to think.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a fun and yet at the same time, annoying game. It's a great concept and different from the other so-called detective games out there but it does have it's quirks. I had the murderer figured out by day three but couldn't figure out how to "accuse" the person because apparently I hadn't questioned the appropriate people, not knowing I had to investigate each and every one. I then ran out of coffee (energy), which meant I had to wait hours until it was replenished. This is incredibly infuriating but I guess that's why you can pay money to speed up the coffee pot. I would like to see more modern day stories, though.
I won't harp on the energy system for too long, because everyone has brought that up, and many games have a similar mechanic. However, that's not to say the mechanic is clever or fun. It's annoying, limiting, and predatory with the amount of times you need to pay to get anywhere in the story.
I understand the plight of indie devs, especially for story driven games, really, I do. However, just make the game cost a dollar or two. Or give us the first day for free, and you have to pay a dollar or so to have the rest of the story. It's leaves less of a bad taste in the player's mind, and I think the game could easily be worth a few bucks with a little polish. It's certainly better than the system in place right now.
My main problem, however, is the word puzzles. My god, are they frustrating. The words usually have nothing to do with the characters, it's not just finding words in the letters, it's set words, in set patterns, so if you can't find exactly what the devs coded in, you're stuck.
Hey do you love to pay to win?
I like murder mysteries a lot, and that this is a free app was exciting to me. However, this game is 100% a pay to win game. Unless you have $1 to burn at nearly every opportunity, there’s no way to progress the game as you see fit. I’d be fine if the game made it feel worth it to spend those single bills on opportunity for information, but the puzzles are just heinous. Investigating the crime scene is boring, it holds your hands through the things it wants you to see, rather than actually investigating the body. Being able to question the suspects is awful too because you have to go through word puzzles, but only the words that the game wants you to find. See a theme here? You aren’t figuring out anything or investigating anything and if you do, you need money to see it through. I got to the 5th day but I couldn’t accuse who I wanted to because I didn’t have enough information on them. I really wanted to see it through to the end but it was so annoying I just looked up the answer and then deleted it. Bad game.
