Relaxing Game, Enjoyable to Play
This game is very relaxing (to me). One of those I play often when I am tired of more challenging ones. It is on the level of a "no-brainer" and sometimes I want that. To sit on an off-day and just play a game that challenges some times and quick play-through at others; this is one of those games. One of the best solitaire games offered with a little twist that you have to choose who the perpetrator of a made-up crime is.

Bland sort of game
Card games are not my genre but tried this one; it started off as a fun up & down solitaire because of the silliness of some of the crimes.
The music is very tedious; you will do better to turn on your own. There was an option of normal or hard mode & tried both but could not tell the difference.
In addition to earning the power-ups as you increase in rank & cash to buy warrants; if you turn over a number of cards (random) you will light up the wheel of misfortune. Spinning this gives you extra cards or takes away some of your cash, etc.
I didn't have any problem assigning clues to suspects & the crimes were very easily solved; you won't wear out your brain trying to work out whodunit.
As you finish each game of solitaire you have the option to continue back to the map for a new location or replaying the level to get a perfect score. I chose to replay each time and it never took more than 4 or 5 replays to get perfect.
All in all it was easy to play but after the first few hours I got bored, the crimes became repetitious & earning extra ranks did not seem to make the game any harder to play.
I will recommend though for those who like their card games to be relatively easy to while away the time.

Nifty Little Game
This game is very addictive.
I am not a solitaire player. Actually, this was my first time. I've played this game for almost two hours and it was very fun. I was trying out the game because my mother spends hours on solitaire and I wanted to see if this would be something she would like. Well, I ended up liking it for myself:-)
The jazz music that plays in the background is so fun. This graphics are nice and the game is kind of quirky--especially the "crimes" that the characters commit--wearing a too-tall hat at the movies, for example--in this almost crime-free town.

Different way to play solitaire. I liked it. Not brain numbing like the standard game.

Relaxing solitaire game with only a few hands needing the use of powerups. There are 50 cases to solve and multiple locations per case, thus providing hours of gameplay. Newspaper articles of these "off the wall" cases are interesting to read. Logic is used to eliminate the suspects and issue an arrest warrant. Earning all the awards is a daunting task, especially the ones requiring speed.

An 'arresting' solitaire game
I think I have found my new 'fairway'. The aforementioned game is my benchmark for this style of game. Whilst it is not quite as quirky (commentary wise) as this game it did hold my interest owing to the silliness of it all the 'crimes' were plain ridicules but that is part of the 'charm' for me.
Even though the game stated that it had three different levels of difficulty I was not able to see this as I played on the hardest setting and managed to get perfect first time on most and just took me two or three attempts on others, so I couldn't understand the differences in the difficulty levels (admittedly I didn't try the others), having said that if this is just a 'random' card game then surely they should not really be differing skill levels then does that mean that it is not a truly random game?
There is a 'wild card' feature in the 'wheel of misfortune' which can produce a positive or negative result.
You gain promotions the further on the game you play and these then reward you with features such as 'undo' (there is probably more the further you go but I am basing this review on the hour free trial).
An addition to this (from Fairway), is that you can get 'combo bonuses' not only from linking several cards together but also for things like matching cards quickly and getting a 'house' on one turn (not actually achieved this yet so don't know what the bonus is for this), but it keeps your interest on what could possibly be a 'bog-standard' solitaire game.
If you like this type of game it is well worth the hour trial, but are you really going to let the 'baddies' get away after this?

Liked very much but does anyone know?
I have played for a few minutes and like a lot but does anyone know how many crimes there are (how long a game?). I would guess it would not have much replay value - at least for the crimes?
