    Fans of classic puzzle-adventure and recent titles like Professor Layton will love The Jim and Frank Mysteries and this is easily recommended for gamers of all walks after a lighthearted challenge.

    The Jim & Frank Mysteries: The Blood River Files may very well be THE puzzle adventure game that people have been looking for on the iPhone.

    The Jim and Frank Mysteries are a good Professor Layton alternative, thanks in no small part to some good puzzles and genuinely well-written exchanges between the characters.

    Shamelessly derivative and lacking likeable characters and an interesting storyline, The Jim & Frank Mysteries: Blood River Files is a well-intended but ultimately disappointing puzzle adventure.

    Since you'll probably skip through the mystery part of this game, it ends up being a collection of puzzles of varying quality.

    In the end, I don't know who this game is for. The coming-of-age plot and cheap character designs might appeal to a kid, but a fair number of the puzzles would be too challenging for someone under ten.
