DinerTown: Detective Agency
This was a fun game but a few times I got lost in what to do. This was "Flo's" first (and only so far) HOG game. It was cute and had some lol moments. And actually get to hear Flo talk!!!! Yahoo!

Short but fun
I really liked playing this game. I beat it in a day but I enjoyed it. It was pretty easy but there was one puzzle I was unable to do but I was able to opt out of it. I do not care about points, I just like to finish a game. This would be a great game for kids. You don't have to earn your hints in this game. After you use one you have to wait about 30 seconds before you can ask for a new one. I love that because sometimes I get really stuck and the game does not have to end because of that

What I Always Wanted... Untill I Played It
I'd been waiting so long to find a DinerTown Hidden Object Game so I jumped on the chance to play this one, and it let me down terribly.
The only things good about this game would be the graphics and the suspect minigames.
I liked how Ernie was getting something of his own, but I hated how they HAD to invlolve Flo.
Terrible cases. They were all so stupid: "Someone's breaking the no camera policy in the gym" or "Someone filled a tomb with food." Please, these aren't even real cases.
The hidden objects were so heard to find.
Having to find fingerprints and objects that needed a magnifying glass dragged the fun rating of this game down.
No puzzles whatsoever. I think that Every hidden object games needs at least one puzzle.
On top of super hard to find objects, the hint took forever to recharge, and I could find nothing, so I was sitting here waiting.
Overall, there's nothing to recommend about this game, even if you love the Dash series, I can't recommend it. Possibly the worst hidden object game I've played.

Overall I Enjoyed Myself.
I would recommend buying this game on sale, as even though I had a blast with it, it isn't as challenging as other hidden object games. Would recommend highly if you enjoyed the Diner Dash series, as it follows along the same sort of story line.

Short but sweet
I played the one hour trial before purchasing and Im glad I did. Forewarning - this is a short game. For those that love the DinerTown series this is fun, but there isn't a great deal of charm. Flo makes only ocassional appearances, and the gameplay is quite different from what you may come to expect. You are required to kick a multi-national restaurant chain out of town by getting customers into your doors. You do this with meals that you need to research, and ingredients you need to purchase. There is a deal of planning before each day happens - buying the right amount of ingredients, tinkering with prices and getting the right meals out for the right type of customers. The customers are the same people you've come across from previous games, but with a zoomed outneighbourhood-wide view, the charm is lost. With very minimal graphics and a barely there story with very cheap looking animated/comic style sequences bookending each neighbourhood, this feels like a game that has a good concept but was given the barest of opportunities to shine. Barely worth it for the fans - but it's a decent game that is just too short to wholly recommend.

INTERESTING STORY; FUN GAME; SUITABLE FOR KIDS
Ernie sends away for a detective kit. Help him and Flo solve numerous mysteries around dinertown. There are over 25 cases. For each case, find HOS clues, find fingerprints or stains, solve a couple puzzles, then question witnesses and determine who the culprit is. You can solve the cases in freeplay style (select any case in any building in any order) if you prefer. This is a good game to play for short periods ? you can easily pick up a new case. I would have preferred voice overs to just written dialogue. Entertaining.
