    Touch Detective has great stylized graphics, interesting-looking characters, a simple interface, and humorous writing, but it all adds up to nothing when the core storyline and gameplay are so lackadaisical.
  2. Touch Detective is terrible in all the ways that make an adventure-puzzler (like the aforementioned Phoenix Wright, or Monkey Island, or Grim Fandango, or etc.) worth its salt. Go spend your £20 on Cluedo, because at least then you're controlling the pathfinding.

I get the feeling from some of the more negative reviews that they didn't find it so easy... I give it a B. Full Review »

Touch Detective boasts responsive controls, w/ a styus only interface, that work quite well on the DS touch screen. The graphics are crisp and clean with a nice sense of style that matches the quirky gameplay nicely. If your looking for a take along game reminisent of some of the early Monkey Island stuff - then, look no further. Full Review »

    Incredible graphics! I couldn't stop laughing at the dialogue! A true point and click adventure game and a must buy!
