Gameplay

  • Solve cases by searching for evidence at the scene of the crime, eliminating suspects, and interviewing the residents of Dinertown to identify the culprit. The game can be played in "Story Mode" or "Free play Mode."  Story mode consists of finding items on the hidden object screens, and successfully completing puzzles and mini games which follow the story. Freestyle mode is strictly hidden object screens with no storyline, puzzles or mini-games.  Either mode can be played in a Timed or Relaxed mode. Timed mode gives you an allotted amount of time in which to find all objects on the list and if you are successful before time runs out you will earn bonus points and will be allowed to proceed to another level. In relaxed mode everything is the same except the timer is non-functional. There are several mysteries available and they are presented on a level map 5 locations at a time. Once you open a specific level map, you can choose to play the mysteries in any order you choose. You can save your game and it will give you the option to continue your game or start over.

  • Hints – Hints are available in all modes and there is a hint button located underneath the list of items to be found. The button must recharge before it can be used and gives off a chime when it is ready for additional use. If you can get through the entire level without using hints you will earn 500 bonus points for that level. You can use the hint button as many times as you wish in either mode but will lost points in
  • P.I. Badges – Each level in all modes offers the chance at extra time if you are in "Timed Mode" and extra points if you are in "Relaxed Mode" See image above with pink circle to see P.I Badge. Every time you play the game the badge will be hidden in different locations.
  • Case Journal – The book at the top of the object list is your "Case Journal" Here you will have all the information stored pertaining to your current case. This includes a list of suspects and items used in the case. Items will automatically document in the case journal as needed. You will never have to manually enter it yourself.
  • Search Screen- Every level begins with a search screen and a list of items on the left of the screen and 3 items which are to be located using a special forensic tool. There are 3 clues in every case that will lead you to potential suspects that you will eventually narrow down by solving various puzzles. Some items will trigger suspects to be added to the case journal and some will enter evidence into the case journal. Some levels have more than one search screen and you can move from one to the other by clicking on the yellow arrow on the screen.
  • Assembly Screen – Some display screens will require you find parts of broken up images that must be found in the scene. Once all parts are found the item will activate in the list and you will be able to click on it and drag it to various "Hot spots" located on the search screen. Once you drag the correct item to the hot spot it will trigger an action and release a clue and/or an additional piece of the broken up images.

  • Hot spots – Areas on a search screen that can be activated by dragging and dropping a completed image that was previously in several pieces hidden all over the scene. Once activated hot spots will release a clue or an additional piece of broken up image.
  • Special forensic Tools – Each mystery requires you find three items using a special forensic tool. These tools consist of "Magnifying Glass," "Fingerprint Duster", and the "Eye Dropper" The special tools are located underneath the list, (See image) and you must click on it to activate it. Once you have the glass activated, pass it over screen and you will only be able to view these items with a magnifying glass as they can’t be seen with the naked eye only. The fingerprint dusting kit requires you to click on it to activate and simply click on the areas you wish to dust. If you have been successful you will hear a bell and see the area highlight for a few brief moments. If you have the dropper click it on to activate and click on the areas you wish to test and if you are successful you will hear a chime and see the area highlight for a brief moment and it will disappear off of the master list.

Mini Games

  • Sequencing Puzzles – Drag and drop the cards into the correct sequence based upon the given clue and then click on the "Submit" button. If you do not get all of the cards in the right order, the ones that are correct will lock into place and you can try again until you get them all correct. Each card corresponds to a potential suspect and this game is used to eliminate half of them. Once you have the suspect list down to three you will question people in Dinertown to help you figure out who the culprit is.
  • Jigsaw Puzzles – Here you have three puzzles to complete that produce the alibi for various suspects and by completing the puzzles you will eliminate these people from your suspect list. Click on the puzzle piece and drag it to the are you wish to place it. Puzzle pieces will not lock into any area accept the correct area. You can scroll through the available pieces by clicking on the arrows on each side of the inventory.
  • Fingerprint Puzzle – There are three fingerprints that have been found at the scene of the crime. You are given the three fingerprints and six suspects prints. You will have to match the prints correctly to eliminate the other three suspects. Drag the magnifying glass over the print and study it. Click on the print and then click on the print that matches it and a line will form between the two prints. Once you have done this for all the prints you will hit submit. If you guess incorrectly you will be given another chance until you have the correct answer. This will eliminate three suspects and you will move on to interview towns people about the remaining three to solve the case.

  • Questioning/Interviewing the residents of Dinertown – Logic Puzzle.  Here you will be taken to a screen with you final three suspects and nine informants you will interview for facts. Click on an informant along the left side of the screen and at the top you will see a statement about one of the three suspects. The suspects have 3 questions that can only be answered "Yes" or "No." Once you have all three questions answered based on you informants information you will use logic and Bernie’s guidelines along the top of the screen to decide who is guilty and who is innocent. Click on the box to place a check in it and click again to remove it. At the bottom you will click on two "innocent" and one "guilty" based on your detective work and hit "Submit" if you are incorrect it will give you another chance to figure things out. Once you have guessed correctly the culprit will appear and explain why he or she committed the act.

  • Ordering/Sequencing Puzzles – Several puzzles will require you to place things in a logical order based on the clue at the top of the page. If you are incorrect in any of your guesses you can try again. Any correct answers will lock in place. Hit submit when you are finished ordering your items.

WALKTHROUGH

The following walk through has the answers for every puzzle and the location of the three major clues for each level. Each time you play the game you will be given a different list of items to search for so it is impossible to list the answers for the search screen. If I have found a particular item very hard to find I will list it for you. The levels can be played in any order you wish so this order does not give you any kind of advantage. Some levels have more than one search screen and all levels in Story Mode had puzzles and Mini games. The puzzle solutions for the Mini games  can vary from the solutions shown in the images here, but the solution will be very similar and the image should help you figure out any puzzle you are having trouble with.

General hints and tips

  • Try not to use the hints if you are going for a high score. If you do not use them during a level you will receive 500 bonus points. 
  • All errors are forgiven in the game. If you make a mistake the game will let you continue until you get all the correct answers.
  • If you fail to find all items in a timed mode screen you will be allowed to try again.
  • You can play the levels in any order you choose there is no advantage playing any one level before or after another.
  • Each time you play a level over again it is a new screen with new items on the list. The only constant is the three clues needed to solve the mystery, these are the same every time you play.
