In this game you search for items within a picture. You also search for pieces of objects and replace objects that are missing, as well as pick a suspect from a list by eliminating ones that don't match a list of clues. If you get stuck in your search, there is a hint icon to help you which regenerates every minute or so. However, the less hints you use, the better your score. The faster you solve the cases, and the less incorrect suspects you arrest, the better your overall score. Tapping on the wrong places several times will add 30 seconds, as well. The better your score, the better the ending is supposed to be.

I LOVE HIDDEN OBJECT GAMES, BUT THIS GAME IS WHOLE BUNCH OF REPETITION. ITS THE SAME FOUR PUZZLES FOR THE WHOLE GAME. 15 CHAPTERS WORTH OF THE SAME FOUR PUZZLES OVER AND OVER AGAIN. B-O-R-I-N-G!!! I STILL FINISHED AND PASSED THE GAME THOUGH. THE GAME WAS OK!

When renting this game, I thout it was going to be filled with an exciting story line with twits and what not, and not just be a aful picture find game. I was dissapointed.
The dialog could have been written by a 3 year old along with the stiry line. The game play made zero sense as well as the main charter having spacial abilitys. And it was a super aful picture fin game on top of it all.
