What are the gems for?

You can spend the gems on a number of things. There’s a shop where you can buy different skins and styles of actions, but they’re more for window dressing. The most important things you can spend your gems on are special choices in the interrogations – sometimes you’re going to need to perform these if you want to finish a level.

Check what you need to find

On the hidden object levels, there are pictures of what you’re looking for along the top of the screen. They’re greyed out but if you look carefully you’ll be able to see what you need to find. Remember that some hidden object levels have more than one section, and the pictures will change between them.

Take the extra missions

Extra missions are a great way to stock up on gems. You’ll have to watch a video to play them, but the rewards are well worth it. Make sure you use the multiply option at the end of the extra missions – watching another video – to bag yourself as many gems as you possibly can.

Watch the BPM meter

When you’re interrogating a suspect make sure you’re keeping an eye on the BPM meter. This will show you how close your suspect is to breaking. You want to make sure it’s moving upwards – it’ll need to be red if you’re going to get them to confess. Make things uncomfortable and they’ll be in trouble.

Use whatever means necessary

When it comes to interrogations, it’s best to leave your morals at the door. Sometimes you’re going to have to threaten the suspect. Sometimes you’re going to have to punch them in the face. Be prepared to do whatever it takes to get them to confess and you’re in the best place to succeed. Obviously don’t do any of that in real life though.
