  • Desperate for a Sequel!!!! Oct 20, 2016

    By Fbjbxfbch
    This game is FANTASTIC. I love murder mysteries, but as someone who is easily upset by gore there's not a lot of mystery games out there for me. Detective Grimoire is the perfect balance of eerie, funny, spooky, and mysterious, and is absolutely addictive. The art is beautiful, the music is perfectly fitting, and the voice acting is absolutely PHENOMENAL--undeniably the best I've ever heard on any mobile game. The way you come to conclusions makes you feel like you're really truly solving the case yourself, unlike most games like this which holds your hand the whole time and guides you to a conclusion. The characters are realistic and three dimensional, the mini games are incredibly fun, and the story is ridiculously engrossing. This is one of my all time favorite mobile games and I'm practically BEGGING for a sequel!!!!!

  • What a surprisingly good game! May 31, 2015

    By Bill Furgeson
    This game is good. I like it a lot. I played it a while back and now I stopped playing it. I had a great experience playing this game. The story of the game is great and you really feel like you are in the game as a detective, searching clues in a swamp because of the murder. The thing that really surprised me and was the best feature of the game is that every character is fully voice acted and the people who did the voice acting did a good job. It made the experience way better. It is very rare for a mobile game to have voice acting! It really blew my mind! I also like that it there was also cutscenes too. One thing wrong with the game was that the game was too short. I had 100% completion in one play through and it was at least 2-3 hours. So, yeah an overall great game. Also, please create a sequel to Detective Grimoire, Armor Games! I want to see what the new one could offer by its story and new characters!

  • Awesome, but Crashes a Lot Dec 8, 2019

    By AwesomeNick94
    Loved the flash original and now this Detective Grimoire! Awesome characters, writing and overall mystery. They’ve got a great framework for a detective game that keeps it from ever getting tedious. Can’t wait to start Tangle Tower! Unfortunately though for this title, it crashed multiple times on my iPhone 7 running the latest version of iOS 13, most often upon tapping the question mark in the top right. It was also a little frustrating to find an item I was missing from outside the office, as it didn’t seem like there was much telegraphing it was there, and I felt that I had already searched it thoroughly. Also it ends kind of abruptly, though not as abruptly as the flash game, at least. There was some weird reluctant dialogue from Grimoire that didn’t make any sense to me. Still loved the experience overall though, and highly recommend it of course!

  • Overall Great Game Jan 23, 2014

    By kittylover456
    There are some things I wish they would've added one of them being more puzzles I think there were only two "puzzles" in the game and they extremely easy. But the game was great without them and I wouldn't of felt like there was something lacking if they hadn't put any puzzles in at all. I loved the art of the characters and the overall simplicity of the game. It wasn't very hard to go through the challenges and to find out the killer in the game but the gameplay was so fun that the simplicity was sort of enjoyed its not the game that your gonna be scratching your head over. I really liked the game and I would definitely recommend it.

  • Where's a sequel/more cases?? Aug 30, 2017

    By l2awkism
    The only disappointment this game gave me is that there was only one case. I finished it so quickly(and loved it so much), that I had just assumed there was another case(or 3) that would follow. There needs to be more detective based games to play like this. One of my favorites had been the hector the inspector series and so I was very happy when I had found another detective game with voice actors and witty writing. Please make a sequel and having multiple cases, even if you release them later for purchase as they're completed like there is in the Layton Brothers: mystery room game, would be lovely.

  • Meh. Dec 13, 2015

    By JamaicaAutumn
    Don't waste your money. I give this game an honest "meh". The mystery was ok, but the puzzles were few and not challenging at all. Game mostly consists of going to each character and running through your collection of clues and suspect profiles until you get a response. Kind of boring. Very little actual sleuthing required to solve. The animation and art are on par with any other flash-style mystery game I've played in the past. Nothing that really stands out. Story was too short. I expected for $1.99 to get a game similar to Arcane, something that would have lasted more than a day. This should have been the free introduction to a much more in depth plot.

  • Backwards gameplay Jan 26, 2020

    By Caffine Goddess
    First off, I highly recommend this game to murder mystery gamers. So I only discovered this game because of the sequel (in Apple Arcade). After I finished it, I wanted more. My research into when the next game would be released showed me this game. Without any hesitation, I bought it and finished it flawlessly in one night (just now). It was just as fun as the sequel, though more was added in Tangled Tower (at least I thought so). Sad fact is that it took nearly 5 years from this for the sequel. Let’s hope the future games don’t need to take as long.

  • Extremely good!! Dec 31, 2014

    By Boby_Wan
    Everything in this game is excellent: game play, graphics, animations, sounds, voices, music and story. And I was able to deduce for myself who the killer was, even before reaching the sequence in the game where the clues start to come together. The game reminded me of Monkey Island or the Sam and Max adventures: humorous dialogs and great care in every detail. It is extremely easy to play the game on iOS (I played on an iPhone 5S). I definitely recommend this game to everyone who enjoys "point and click" adventures. And congratulations to the developers for such an excellent piece of art. 👍👍👍

  • Step down from the first Jan 12, 2014

    By Mikicoo
    I played the first one maybe 3 years ago? It was an amazing game. This wasn't bad, but I think it focused too much on being kid-friendly. That bothers me because a murder case is not supposed to be kid friendly. One of the best things about the first was its creepy factor. The whole scene had an aura of sadness, but the characters were all witty. I did not like the ending to this, nor the artwork. The characters were fun and unique, but again, it's like I was playing a kid's game, much unlike the first. It's realism was also turned way down. The new features such as the puzzles were fun, however.
