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!

A Classic Game
I first played this game about 3 years ago and still love playing it. Here are my thoughts on the game:
The classic feeling of all the Parker games
It had profiles of all the possible victims and murderers
The game tricked you sometimes
There was no limit on how many hints you could use
Had 2 modes- puzzle and timed
You could play a level whenever you wanted by choosing 'Play a Level'
There were a few too many objects towards the end
Seemed to be the same killer all the time- it was never Ophelia and it was rarely Harriet
Some of the later levels were easier than the levels beforehand which was just weird.
Overall, this game will entertain you, even years after you finish it. It's definitely worth buying.

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.

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.

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.

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

Games come and go. This game, however, still remains a classic.

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.
