Detective Jackie: Mystic Case Collector's Edition is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best games I have played This overhauled approach to a time management game is fabulous for Snugaford! I loved every bit of it. Keep going outside the box like this. Highly recommend this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from \i love this type of game! I really enjoy games from this developer. It is true that there is no quit option in the opening as you are learning how to play the game but once you are past that stage all the options are there. Difficulty level, sound options as well as a quit option. The only part that I do not agree with is making this a collector's edition. Too expensive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Gripping A compelling story with far-reaching consequences. Options can be accessed via the triple horizontal lines at the top left of the main page, or by pausing the game. There are separate sliders for Music, SFX and Quality, as well as whether or not to have Tips show. Choice of 18 languages and three difficulties, which can be changed at any time. Story: 14 years ago Jackie Johnson lost her daughter to a fire, and has specialized in cases regarding children ever since. When Jackie is called in to assist the police with the murder of young girl one night, there are just too many reminders of her own loss. Is this case related to her lost daughter, or is Jackie just unable to let go of the past? Gameplay: Any fan will know how the general gameplay works, and while Mystic Case plays like an old friend, it also has new mechanics that keep it from being the same old, same old. The Basics: Click on a client/customer, then click on the station where they want to be. Once there they may want you to come talk to them, bring them something, or they might just be happy on their own. They might want to be moved to a different area, which is where customer-swapping comes into play. When two clients swap places, you get bonus to your score. You will NOT be working a cash register in this game, which is entirely new to me. When a client is finished, they'll just leave and your points will be awarded. Something new that Old Skull Games has added to the genre (besides customer-swapping) is the ability to call in new clients. Too slow for your taste? Not getting enough points? Call in more customers to keep you busy and/or generate more income! You won't be able to do this at first, but I'll come back to abilities later in the review. Occasionally you will need to do a little extra at a station, but it's not an overwhelming amount like in the Heart's Medicine series, nor will you need to have quick reflexes or dexterity for these tasks. Speaking of tasks, it's important to Reach for the stars! The bar that tracks your score has up to three stars you can earn. Every level has non-timed, non-skippable mini-games that are triggered by reaching each star level. There might be two minis, but there can be three, so you might miss out on that 3rd piece of information if you don't get all three. The great part of these minis and interviews is that they tie in to the story so beautifully. Every little thing you do, every interaction and everything that makes you stop and go "Hmm..." is part of the bigger picture. Varied Locations: You will bounce around between locations as your investigation leads you in new directions. You'll have enough time to get used to it, but this is not your formulaic 10 levels at one location, then 10 levels at the next type of game. Scattered throughout the game there are levels where you will be interviewing witnesses to gather information. These are multiple choice, and each interrogation has one unique interaction, that you'll want to see, because you'll get an achievement for finding that dialogue. If you're too impatient to try the level over again, this handy Walkthrough will tell you which option(s) to pick. Achievements are important! You're going to want to get each and every achievement you can, because they will generate gems that you will use to unlock new abilities. Gems are earned by completing levels, but the bulk of them will come from achievements. Just getting the 'cheevos is not enough, though... You have to go into the Trophy Area (top right between levels) to claim your reward(s)! Ability Upgrades: Every 10 gems you earn will allow you to get a new upgrade, ranging from faster walking to extra hearts (linked to your points) to being able to carry more than one item to greater patience and more. You can check the walkthrough for a full rundown (lest this review turn into a guide! lol~) There are no mice or hamsters, but one of the upgrades is a ? that will appear on the screen during levels. I highly suggest turning down the music a little so that you can hear the sound it makes when it shows up, as it will net you a tidy point boost if you can find it! Sights and Sounds: I love the art style, I love the character design, I love the sound effects and music... The only thing missing is voice overs. This title would have been even more amazing with professional voice acting, but then, I'd rather have no voices than have bad acting! There are some localization issues with the English, including grammar and some missing words, but the story is so interesting and the gameplay so good that although I really notice these things, it didn't bother me in the slightest! That is the mark of truly good game! Verdict: Mystic Case is an absolutely gripping tale, and I had a hard time pulling myself away to deal with real life. I'm a seasoned time management player, and the game took me about 8.5 hours to complete. The characters are likable, the gameplay easily-tailored to your skill level and FUN, and everything ties in to the outstanding story... Even the achievements and upgrades! This game earns my highest recommendation! Despite my love for the Delicious games, Detective Jackie has become my new favorite in the Snuggford Universe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really captivating and fun game The game does remind me of Parker & Lane, only with a much better game play and it is more challenging. You can choose the language and the difficulty. Normally I don't really care for the story line, but I was quite intrigued to see where it was going. You have to click where you want the characters to go and you can earn stars to use in upgrades (which are given at random). 60 levels to play. Loved the game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really rarely write reviews, but this game here, was great! I've been with Big Fish Games for over a decade and I really don't write reviews, because I am the type who believes, my payment IS the positive review of the game. Like buying the item, you just sampled is a thumbs up to the item. But I truly enjoyed this game enough to write a review of it. For those who enjoy TM games, this one was unique in a way that made it challenging. Normally, when you get the TM "upgrades" you choose from a "menu" and you would get the ones that help you further your goal faster (walk faster, more points, or more hearts, etc..), which towards the end of the game makes the game way too easy but hey that's what management is all about. This game randomizes the upgrades in a fun roulette style fashion, you the player get no choice in which upgrades you get. You pay for each chance to spin the wheel, and then have to adjust your thinking on how to work the upgrade into how you play. For those who are worried about it being too difficult, there is a difficulty setting, which allows for newbies, average and expert, but the real challenge comes when you get an upgrade called "summon customer", where you can summon extra "customers", (we saw it first in the love boat game), which you must time correctly or you lose customers and hearts. At one point you can summon up to 3 extra people into the line, but then you would have no room if the random regular timed customer shows up, so the fourth customer with no spot would then leave (only three in the line at a time.) Plus as the levels increased, the items you collect to fill the orders began to become more then click and give, and the customers wanted more and more and more items, (one random upgrade is called, "extra items" and those a randomized in the game play so you don't know who is going to ask for a "gold extra item", plus they time out faster on that request), so if you got complacent and summoned too many customers, you found yourself in trouble. I can't tell you how many times I had to replay some of the later levels because I had over 7 customer on the screen; 4 waiting for things; 3 on the line waiting for slots and me running around trying to keep all my hearts, (yes, I am one of those players who wants all my hearts to be filled. Its the time management/customer service focus in me.) I do appreciate, (and this is probably a me thing), the removal of random mission tasks. You know the ones, like "don't do anything for 30 seconds", "make 40 pots of coffee, even if no one wants it" or "everybody is coming in so angry you will never get full hearts (see above comment as to why this is frustrating to me.)" This one is focused on the story line and you play minigames within the level to advance your detective work. The minigames are not timed, (at least not in normal mode), but are very visual and gives you a chance to do something different. It also (to me) gave you an extra challenge later in the game. The mini challenge is triggered once you hit a certain point level while playing; so not the normal customer trigger. But true players know that when you are in your TM zone, and something stops you, it can be a bit of ta "Hulk" trigger for us. You get stopped, (sometimes with a full board, and trying to collect those bonus service points,) to do the mini challenge. You complete the challenge and are sent back to the main game wherever you left it. So now you have to refocus on who wanted what and remember what your game plan was before the mini challenge was triggered. Plus, these mini challenge moments can happen up to 3 times in the later levels. So yeah, you can get a "Hulk Smash mentality" sometimes. The game also incorporates a "choose your own adventure aspect", where if you don't choose the correct series of dialog, you wont get additional upgrade points, and you won't learn more about the creative storyline and believe me I am that player who usually skips the storyline because to me it is just so... well, bleh. But this storyline takes a unique perspective; a creative mix of fantasy and actual Greek mythology. Plus! It didn't give you the basic "Hey we fixed everything at the end! Yay, lets eat" ending, we've come to expect. And you don't have to replay an actual TM level to get the dialog right, they separated it making those moments their own actual level, so you can replay them as many times as it takes to get to the correct series of dialog. As far as the simple things, beautiful art, which they also give you the ability to lower or raise the video quality. I normally don't play with the music on but at the beginning, it sounded pleasant and enhanced the "game mood." Honestly, these things don't mean much to me, but I have to give credit, where credit is due. The game is beautiful and enchanting. I am not sure why people feel it is a "kiddie game", I am old as dirt and I loved it; but lets face it; games that are not violent, horror based, or adult themed in general, are for ALL ages. But you the PLAYER, get to decide how difficult it is at the beginning of the game, and then the game gives you even more ways to challenge your skill set, so yeah, those who are in the "it's kiddie" state of mind, that's on you. Overall, great game, interesting story line, unique challenging levels, and unique style of game play. I am truly waiting for the next game in this series, as I want to know more about the story and to play this refreshing new style of Time Management games. Bravo!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun TM Mystery The reviewers who gave one-star are unfair. The intro set the background for the whole story and, seriously, if you don't want a TM game, then don't play it or review it. This is a game where your choices matter. The plot is interesting, and the time management tasks are fun. It's a mystery and has elements of mythology, so there is an educational value as well. There will obviously be a sequel, and I can't wait to try it. I like the TM games that concentrate on a story more than just gathering resources.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really a Good Game I really enjoyed playing this game! It was a lot of fun and super enjoyable! The only thing I'm kind of sad is how it ended! I hope they plan on making more! It would be really awesome if they continued her and her family's story! Game play was fun and easy to do as well! Definitely can replay this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Detective Jackie - Fun Game I am enjoying this game. Interesting game play. I feel like Columbo, tracking down leads. Detective Jackie is determined to get answers for the death of a 17 year old art student who is the same age as her daughter who went missing. This is the type of game I play on my tablet. It's nice to see it on my large computer screen. I have had to reply levels only to get 3 stars and learn the direction of each scene. Once I was clued in the game moved along smoothly. There are no voices. You must read the dialog. The music can not be toggled off. I turned the sound off on my computer and that worked for me if I didn't want to hear the background music continually. A pretty good detective game. Well thought out. Cute characters with great interaction with Detective Jackie. I have to continue to find out who done it! Give it a try. Hope you enjoy it as much as I am.
