    A unique little adventure game with loads of style, fun characters, and plenty of charm.
  2. I understand that the slow-paced adventure gameplay isn't for everyone, but there is so much to love here that I firmly urge each and every one of you reading this right now to open your mind and try it for yourself.
  3. Touch Detective’s old-school, slow-paced gameplay may not be for everyone, but fans of the genre will enjoy the quirky aesthetic and witty story.

    For those looking for a nostalgic adventure game experience, you'll be pleasantly surprised, at least in function. For anyone else, Touch Detective offers a quirky and off-kilter, albeit short and at times frustrating, adventure.
  5. All but the most hardcore adventure gamers or those totally smitten by the art style and characters will easily bore of the game halfway through the second case.

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 »
