It took us quite a long time to make this game and we're releasing it totally for free! So if you enjoy it, we would kindly ask you to disable your ad-blocker (if you have one) before the game loads as this directly helps both us, the developers, and Newgrounds out. Thanks!

Oh hey a mushroom I hired for my guild was telling me about this place . . .wouldnt stop chuckling :D
( hero agency reffs )

I really like this,the artstyle,the gameplay ,evertyhing!

So this game is luck based, no strategy needed just guesswork, which is not at all what I would expect from a game based on solving crimes. If the graphics were any worse I wouldn't have given this any stars.

It is a good thing that detectives aren't limited like this IRL.

Edit: I agree it would be ridiculous if it was luck based.
When I have 8 winkles and 4 AP and the 4 I question all share traits that the suspect has, then yes it is luck based! (Unless I am LUCKY enough to get less winkles on my first case) The fact that you don't see that is mind boggling!
Go read @hiimquinn's comment it points out several problems that I'm not going to bother typing out.

Chaz responds:

It's not luck based at all, that would be ridiculous!

Pay attention to the clues. It's not a fast paced game. You need to use your brain. Somebody in the comments has posted a very good breakdown of some of the clues somewhere; check it out if you need a guide.

What? This makes no sense. The eye witness info is often borderline useless, with most of it being nonsensical, the clues rarely reveal anything important considering how unreliable they are at first go, with so many being investigate you'd have to get lucky choosing the first person in order to save up enough to stand any chance of making it in the latter levels...

Seriously, how the hell am I supposed to investigate 10 people with 2 action points? What?

And the "coward" trophy. That's cute, but I really don't appreciate being taunted, especially in such a game where a single misuse of an action point could be the difference between maintaining or losing your streak.

oh gee, i am really bad at this! xD

edit: finally 1 win...
