Crime Solitaire 2: The Smoking Gun
Crime? Not this game
I was originally drawn to this game by the whole 'detective aspect'. I was not disappointed. The storyline is exceptional.
The music and voices are very 'detective-like' and often humorous. I enjoyed the storyline and simplicity of playing - it's pretty self-explanatory.
My only real complaints are these - 1) While the 'locations' have pretty decent graphics, I found the 'cartoonish' character graphics unappealing. 2) In order to complete levels, you often have to use ammunition or wild cards, which gets old. But to the games credit, if you choose not to go that route, you can always 'skip over' a level after 3 failed attempts.
Earning cash is pretty easy to do, so buying ammo & wild cards for the game is not an issue - it's the frequency needed that annoys me.

Rootin' Tootin' The Shootin' Gun is my Kind of Fun
I have played the first one of this I hope to be a series of fun card games. This one is superior to the first one where there was a Wheel of Fortune which got a bit tedious to spin. The game is the usual higher or lower cards ie Ace on King, Queen on Jack. The only drawback is that you cannot scan the next card coming which is possible in some of these games. The best thing is the quirky and fun characters and prepare yourself for some groaners as the witty and talkative Detective Max Stone explores the underground criminal network who are plotting to bring the Town of Evergreen Height's under their Jurisdiction.
The music here is lively and not at all irritating as it changes from time to time as you explore Evergreen Heights on your quest to find the criminal gang. Another bonus is that you only have to play three games before you can skip, but I think this is only in the normal setting. There is a difficult setting which I haven't done yet where I think you won't be able to.
Also if you have had enough of the story there is a challenge game where you have to collect diamonds and money and do so many runs of cards ie five or more in a row. All in all a great game, and as I got it for free all the better.

What happened to Jimmy Menendez?
That's what this entire game is all about. What happened to Jimmy Menendez? Did he die on a plane or was he the lone parachutist a witness saw? Who knows?
This is a cute solitaire game, however, it would be better if, instead of one very l-o-n-g ongoing story there were multiple crime stories.
Even with all the zany characters and one-liners from the P.I., the story (case) went absolutely nowhere in an hour of the free demo. It was stale, stagnant and boring. Sorry, BF, this game could definitely be improved on.
I will recommend this for beginners or those who love a sleuthing story that takes forever and a day to finish.

A let down
I love solitaire games..... but not so much this one.
The some levels are just too hard to complete so i changed on to story mode and again it was the same i had to start over again at one point to go on to tutorial so i could move on.
It is still worth playing if you just want to play solitaire but if you are wanting a game to move forward in then be prepared to get annoyed with the game.
Glad i got this game on offer

After playing Fairway and many others for years, this game is awful. The levels are impossible to beat and I end up skipping every level after multiple tries, even with the added on tricks. What's with this "mojo" stuff?? You can't win this game without skipping
