The characters are fleshed out, the scenes are beautiful, and the narratives are well-written and thoughtful. It's both enjoyable and relaxing to play!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from no rats or plague in this one, its simply old pariee... storyline is a bit involved with multiple charactors who help develop a intertwined adventure where finding evedence is crutial to solving a serious murder scene. The goal is to find the killer and to put him/her behind bars. Instead it involves more than one crime in the city of Paris, about one hundred years ago. The information is good and it goes on for hours, im only half way through and ive played about 5 hours. Shadow the cat isnt there, just a sad crying of him, too sad as the tale goes, and the gears between scenes is grewling to the brain. Its more of a theatre show than like his other games, as this one takes time to get use to. All in all, i like the way Dupin dosnt mess around and likes to point out things that the ordinary male would neglect to see. Hes young and well defined as he has his own taste, with his top hat and fancy cane. i hope to see him again in a future game, yet fear the nitty gritty it involves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I enjoy it! I have played many types of free to play games and this one is not bad. I have read complains about keeping your energy up, but it's really not that hard. This game has kept my attention for a few days now, so in my book that makes it a good game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Murder Mystery This is a very well-made game with beautiful graphics. The mystery of the murder is what draws me to the game. I've really enjoyed the HOS and story line. You play an assistant to Monsieur Dupin and are tasked in investigating a murder. Make sure to read and know the story line, as there is a newspaper interview later that will pay out 125 gems. I have only purchased the initial special offer, and with my BFG membership it was only a few dollars. It gave me some amulets and HOS helps and gems, etc. Well worth the cost. You actually start out wearing your underwear, and I was wondering how the society of Paris was viewing me without skepticism, considering I was also new at investigations.... but I finally saved the 320 gems for the entire outfit. There are 2 to choose from, one will allow you a better percentage to receive the items from the HOS, the other will give you a better increase in energy. Both outfits are rather stunning, especially since you've been running around in your undies the whole time, it's refreshing to be dressed to the nines. I've been playing for a while now, and I really enjoy the game. The story is ever evolving and interesting. There are several HOS and you travel between them depending on what is needed in the story. The HOS locations vary in type and amount of objects. I am up to 18 items in most, and it switches between silhouettes, word list, and compare, which is my favorite. You have to discern what is missing when you compare the two scenes. You earn items you are searching for, coins and experience for visiting each, and each visit helps in leveling up in the HOS. There are also airships which fly by and they need items, like a sandbag to be able to land, or a muffler to help with the cold air... There are also funny mini quests, like capturing werewolves, mummies or escaped prisoners. At first I was purchasing the items needed to capture them, until I realized that the HOS will also give you the cage or tombstone or whatever is needed to capture them. The game is very involved, and intriguing. You continue to find items that are requested of you, assist Monsieur Dupin, and the citizens of Paris, while trying to solve the murder. If you play the game just right, you can level up after playing twice, which will give you full energy. You also have amulets that you can use to increase your coins, experience, finding items, and energy replenishment time. You also build collections which also give you gems and help items. All of the airship/balloon requests give you a gem upon completion, and most of M. Dupins quests also give a gem, so they add up. You also receive a daily gift of energy or amulet. There is also a future enhancement of being able to friend and gift collection items. I hope this is enabled soon. It is a fun game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Never Knew Detective Dupin Had A First Name, Did You? Yep, apparently it's C. Auguste Dupin (okay so the C parts still a bit vague) I never liked the F2P games at first, I fear change, but the more I play them the more addictive they become. I still like Midnight Castle the best, but this one's pretty good. You are Detective Dupin's newest recruit in his agency and his assistant, Anna Flers is his secretary and will also show you the ropes to get you started, these games seem complicated at first but are actually quite easy to navigate. You will be given quests which are tasks or objectives, and to finish that task you will need to go to that specific location, such as Dupins house, a cafe or a hotel corridor and even a dungeon. Each location is a Hidden Object Scene with either a list find or a silhouetted shape find, sometimes you have to search that location with a flashlight. The faster you find items back to back, the more points you gain which will progress you in levels. There are bonuses you can earn or purchase to help you such as a more powerful lantern, a tuning fork to cause items to shake or even a flare. You will need to purchase energy (food) to investigate, the coins are easy to earn, the crystals far and few between so be conservative with those. There are achievements to earn and you can purchase and receive gifts from other players. There are amulets to earn, and you can store items you earn and purchase in your office. The office has an achievements case, a diary to store important information, a furnishings store to decorate your office, and a wardrobe closet where you can buy, store and change your wardrobe, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nightfall: An Edgar Allan Poe Mystery This game is great I love it. It's the kind of game I love to play, it's not too hard and it's keeping me interested for a while.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good game, needs improvement What I love most is the music. Good graphics, which is to be expected. However, there is not much of a story. I wish there was some kind of romance developing there (I'm currently at level 32). It would be also nice to be taken out of Paris once in a while, perhaps secret lots only if the story goes certain ways. There is a major issue with the banking system, though. We should be able to TYPE in the exact amount of currency we wish to deposit. Do you realize how long it takes to deposit 1 million dollars by increments of 50? I gave up trying to save eventually.
