Too Short!

Unlike the critics, I liked this game. I'm used to this sort of mystery game with the pc, and I understood that I needed to click all over the screen (I pretty much touch everything) and that some of the scenarios would be bizarre and illogical (the butterfly), so I was really enjoying this game. I like the DS interface, and the characters were different and fun. The reason this game did not get a 9 from me is that I played through the whole thing in only 12 hours. This is a first for me; I'm not a serious gamer. I don't ever finish games without lots of help from FAQs and walkthroughs and online forums - and still it takes me weeks. So now you begin to understand just how short this game really is. Definitely try it, don't expect the solutions to be logical all the time, just try everything on everyone, but don't waste your money buying this game at a full price retailer. It's a perfect rental - for games like this Game Fly rocks!

I thought I would love this game because the art/animations were so cute. But it was way too short and way too ridiculous to love... maybe even to like.

The shortness of the game would have been okay if the things you needed to do to solve a case made SENSE. Seriously, an air pump for a chicken? Come on.

I had to use a walk-through about 7 times just to move on. The point of this game seems to be: Poke everything in the world with your stylus. Don't use logic, just poke!!

If you need something to waste time, maybe this is it. Don't blame me when you get frustrated though.
