    Seems to have garnered fairly decent reviews. I loved I SPY books and Where's Waldo and those parts of the HIGHLIGHTS kid magazines. I'll check this out.

    I've seen my cousin play games from this series on the PC. It's a detective game aimed for kids I think.
    She likes them quite a bit even though I tell her that they look suspicious and might be one of those spyware filled games.

    EDIT: I like how the boxart overlaps some of the Nintendo DS sidebar thingy. They should do that more often.

    It's a missing objects game rather than a mystery game. Will try it since I like the pc series.

    Is there a way to ask where it can be found without infringing on the forum rules? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

    PM-ing someone about roms is allowed if they're ok with it. Otherwise it's spam, I'd assume.

    I don't think that's ok here, even PMing. I am pretty sure that is against the rules. It's not that hard to find these things yourself anyway, why put GBAtemp in jeapordy? Seriously guys, stay away from asking for roms.

    The font used on the title is a big turnoff for me.
    Basically "if they didn't bother searching for a good looking font to be used on boxart, would they have put a lot of efforts into the game?"

    I don't think a title font will hinder me playing games, and somehow the topic title is wrng, it's "Case", not "clue". Does this game needs battery like the PC version?

    this was expected to be more of the prof layton category of which strangely a korean version was released
    This should be good and ratings point to that

    I remember emailing them 2 years ago asking if a DS game was planned. Don't think they lied when they said there wasn't as I'm sure it wasn't planned back then. I was super excited to give this game a spin. I think they made the best implementation possible on the DS. Kudos to Big Fish Games for that. However, it just isn't fun like the ones on the computer. I'm very picky too I won't even play the 800x600 version of these hidden object games only 1024x768. Also won't play them in full screen as it distorts the picture. On the computer you have well hidden camoflauged objects. On this DS game it seems not so much camoflauged but rather dark instead. Computer you have 10 objects per scene this one only 5. If this is your first exposure to hidden object games and you try this and dismiss them as crap then it's really not the best game to judge this genre at at all. I'd say check out for PC/Mac 60 min demo Agatha Christie: Peril at End House and compare that to this. Really it's nite and day. Might it work on iphone/touch who knows.

    I like the game. It's got all sorts of puzzle games, but it mainly focuses on the "find the item in the room full of things" type of game.
