Much like another game on this site, this puzzle game is just brilliant whatever level you play it at. If you want a simple game, play it without the clock and on easy but if you put the timer on and make the hardest possible then it gets insanely challenging and will lead to hours of fun and hair pulling.
I absolutely love replaying this because even if you do encounter the same board twice, there is very little change you'll remember it!

1st game i ever bought from BigFish and that was 5 years ago and still love playing it. Definitely a classic and i think it will continue to be so. Would love them to release another inspector Parker with a lot more games and challenges.

This game is fun and challenging. You can play repeatedly and get different puzzles each time. I only know of one game like this "A Series of Unfortunate Events". Buy this game.

Wonderful unique game
This game has been a firm favourite of mine for years. Playable in Career Mode or by choosing a level from three difficulty ratings, you are Inspector Parker's protege and must use the clues to deduce who killed Aunt Agatha and how... and later why!
Whilst not story driven, the characters are charming, the artwork beautiful (check out the gallery!) and the replay value immense. If I had to recommend only one game, it would certainly be this one.

I love it because it is different. You eliminate the objects/people that don't work until you solve the mystery.

Work Your Brain!
I loved this game! I'm surprised it's not listed in the 'Brain Games' category because you need logic skills to solve the puzzles. The theme for the game is murder-mystery. Using clues and the process of elimination, you need to identify where key characters, weapons, and victims are in a house of varying levels. The challenge increases the further along you get. I wish BF had more games like this one!

You can play it for hours and never get bored
I wish they made more like this, it is a nice switch from HOG's, M3's and Arcade games. A lot like a visual Sudoku and twice as much fun. The scenes are corny and the characters cliche but it works. There are many options for playing different ways to make it easier or wickedly challenging.
I rarely write reviews, but after playing this game 3 or 4 times in a row, I had to add my two cents. I'd gladly buy more games like this.

Loved this logic game
This game is so different from the others out there. Not a click-fest, and no retracing steps to find hidden objects. Not much of a storyline - but it doesn't need it.
This game has you using logic to find the answer, much like the board game Clue, by process of elimination.
Scalable for different levels of challenge. But very good to play.

Superb logic-testing puzzler where you accompany Inspector Parker on his investigation into murders at a large house (which gets larger and more densely occupied as the game progresses). You have to compare the statements made by an array of weird and wonderful characters, in order to place them in their correct room along with a possible murder weapon and motive, and eliminate those who you think are innocent. Wonderfully engaging, with the statements getting more and more complex as the game progresses and you work your way up the ranks of the police force.
Quite an old-fashioned look and feel, but nothing wrong with that. It suits the game down to the ground (or, in this case, from the attic to the cellars!).
