Criminal Case for Android is a high quality search and discover sort of hidden objects game. Play CSI detective, gather evidence, decipher clues, participate in autopsies and find the killer to crack the case and be the hero. If you like CSI sorta crime dramas then this game is for you.
Criminal Case is a classic hidden objects game at its heart, but has the smarts to reach beyond the pat and predictable genre to offer unique and dynamic play that's wholly addictive. As the story goes, there's been a murder, and you've been charged with solving the case. So you search the crime scene for clues, find the murder weapon, the victim’s body and a few clues that need further investigation. So it's off to the lab where you participate in an autopsy, discuss the case with the police chief, then head out to find the truth by searching more hidden objects environments. The play is dynamic and intriguing, striking a good balance between tried and true play, and a quality plot with innovative elements to keep things interesting.
The controls are basic touch commands and functioned as expected. The graphics are high quality still images with various characters that help drive the plot forward via text. The animation is basic, offering motion tracking on still images, however, some of the vignettes have some modest animation to render. The sounds are mysterious and inspire one to delve deeper and become immersed within the plot.
Criminal Case is a quality game with minor quirks, but the play is solid and wholly entertaining. This one takes you on a journey of the imagination and is fun.
