Under rating threshold (show) I love the interface and atmosphere, as always, but the storyline lacks some consistency. I understand you want to avoid forkings in the investigation (but why?), but why shoild I be prevented from going to the Pharmacy in the first place? I got all the clues since the start! Also, try to make more evident the areas where to click to change room: sometimes I clicked on a possible clue only to unwillingly change room: exits should be emptier.

Under rating threshold (show) I would like to combine all the clues by myself on the board. Just like the last game. This time seems too straight forward when all the clues almost solved automatically. But still, great game

Under rating threshold (show) Nice atmosphere, but the click boxes are a bit strange. Interface-wise, it'd be much less frustrating if it were clear when I was going to be sent back to the previous screen, or even where to click to go back, in some cases...

Under rating threshold (show) why god he brushed the gas cap, but not the top of the trunk, unless the killer used his butt to close it im pretty sure thats the most obvious place to get the killer prints, since its prolly the last place he could remember clean, but really? the gass caps?

Under rating threshold (show) I just found another anachronism. The real Erich Hartmann was a German Luftwaffe pilot during WWII, but he died in 1993 and never worked for the U.S. Government. Wernher von Braun died in 1977. This was a fun game, but I really wish they had thought historical facts and contexts out more carefully.

Under rating threshold (show) Ok, finished it...left wondering what the point of all that was. I checked out the walkthrough to see if I'd missed anything. "Search for clues" is not the kind of phrasing that is on par with the helpfulness expected of something that, by definition, is meant to walk you through the game. Anybody who's having trouble finding one of the clues and checks the walkthrough would be horribly frustrated by the lack of detail. Meanwhile, I'm still wondering what the point of it all was.

Under rating threshold (show) To reach second page of the diagnosis codes book, hover your mouse slowly over the text on the upper half of the page - the cursor will change when you reach the clickable region. You may have to exit + return to the book a couple of times ( at least I had to! ).

Under rating threshold (show) The game gets frustrating, not because you don't know how to piece together the clues, but the game is finicky in figuring out what to click in order to progress.

Under rating threshold (show) @Blackskull8642. You have no idea how real that ending is. In the US that is a real problem since leads and evidence goes cold or becomes a dead end when the criminals move to another police departments area. The time it takes for a case to be moved to another police department leaves the criminal with a lot of time to get away. At least in the time the game is set in. The 50's didn't have computers with internet so digital versions of evidence could be sent to the other side of the country in a few seconds. This game gives a very realistic look into how detective work was done, in a half-legal/illegal way during the 50's.

Under rating threshold (show) Outside of the apartment I used the PO Box key on the box and I cannot open the box even though the key disappeared and a confirmation sound was made. I don't know if it's an issue of the grey frame around the flash player keeping me from clicking in the correct spot or if I missed a step or clue somewhere.

Under rating threshold (show) I think this episode is worse than eps 1 and 2. It gives you too many clues (such as the shine on the fingerprints places, or the number of total clues per location). In addition, I preffer the black and white style, much more adecuated to the time the story is suppossed to happen.

Under rating threshold (show) Showing people how much progress done in evidence makes the game less fun. In my opinion the second game was far better. You were combining the clues on board, you had to give money and some items to poor beggar on the street etc. Well visuals are getting better each game. But the third game's scenario isn't satisfying. I'm just a gamer who loves inspector style, i have no offensive acts against you. Just consider my words as one of your fan...

Under rating threshold (show) These games are some of my favorite on Kongregate, and yet I felt that this one was your worst yet. I loved the gritty feel of the last one with the black and white art, the control you had over the board, and the freedom to move about in the game. This one led you along a very linear path (for example, making previous locations no longer viewable) and was extremely frustrating when you had to click about randomly to find a clue that was not even vaguely mentioned in the walkthrough. Please go back to the style of the last game- this wasn't an improvement. That being said, I am a HUGE fan and I have nothing but support for your work!

Under rating threshold (show) I liked it, but... 1) the responsiveness of the mouse clicks was very poor - it took a few seconds each time I clicked on something for it to react 2) there was no tutorial or text in the Instructions section that things that glimmer should use the brush on 3) the walkthrough is so vague that it cannot help you if you are stuck on finding a certain clue #
