Detectiveman game is a simple game about a detective who is trying to solve a criminal case and arrest the culprit. This game was inspired by hangman.

UPDATE 26/6/2015 :
Mokarin helped us created this simple music background for this game, hope you like it :D (there are also some updated art)
sorry no update mystery this time.

How To Play :
Explore the town and find some letters which can give you a clue. Some of the letters are scattered everywhere therefore use binocular feature. There are several spots that if you are idle for a while a dialogue box will popup and it might give you a clue. After all words are found, the one behind the crime.

Control :
A -> left move
D -> right move
E -> show note
Q -> hide note
X -> use binocular
Z -> hide binocular
When you are using a binocular, you can use AWDS to move the camera. And for mobile, you can use arrow in screen (you can tap on the screen)

for mobile you can tap on screen :)

thanks to Mokarin for Artist and thanks to siti :D

Ps: Sorry there is no music in here, we don't have composer and i just use bfxr and record myself :D

It's fine

I have won!

It wasn't that much of a mystery to be honest. I went through all the clues at least twice but in the end it all came down to guessing both the crime and the criminal. Nothing in it makes the options appear as actual suspects, but rather like random people hanging out by a toy store in the middle of the night.
Some of the letters were hard to find which was fun and made me want to continue playing, but even that couldn't distract from the lack of actual clues and motives.
The game has plenty of potential though, with great graphics and the binoculars were a fun twist to an otherwise basic, run-of-the-mill point and click game.

Hello gorgophone ! We realize there not much mystery, if you think again its kinda bit random, when we first create this game we think its enough for mystery like this but sadly we realize its not. Thank you for your feedback ! we'll be better next time :D


It certainly is an interesting idea, that could go somewhere nice.

But I had a lot of trouble with the gameplay. It seems like there isn't much thought that is expected of the player, considering it is supposed to be a mystery. There are things that appear to be clues, but in the end, you just click on letters, then pick a random suspect, based on nothing that was said before.

Am I missing something major?

Hello, as i said in author comment "There are several spots that if you are idle for a while a dialogue box will popup and it might give you a clue" its not completely random, maybe its lack of a mystery sorry for that we'll try harder next time. Thank you :D
