  • Excerpt: The graphic adventure (aka Point-and-click) genre has enjoyed success on the PC platform, but has never enjoyed much success on consoles. The whole point-and-click interface is often smoother and easier with a mouse than with a controller's D-pad, which often makes the pointer drag slowly and without the pinpoint accuracy needed for pixel hunting.

  • Excerpt: I had high hopes for this rather pervertedly named DS game. Not in that it’s not a game for perverts – I haven’t quite sunk to UK Resistance ‘s level – but that it’s actually quite, quite crap. The art direction is good, so too is much of the animation and there is some humour in there that I wish in hindsight I didn’t snigger at, solely because I don’t want to be encouraging myself that this is a game worth playing.

Portable Review
27 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Touch Detective is an obscure point-and-click adventure video game starring a young detective named Mackenzie. Those familiar with the genre will know what to expect – mysteries, criminals, and touching things. Most fans of the genre know only to touch things with a mouse, but Touch Detective uses the Nintendo DS’ stylus in absence of a mouse. It is a very fun game at times, but it sometimes can be a chore to play if you don’t know where to go or what to do.

Touch Detective Review

GameSpot
22 November 2006
  • Excerpt: One of the things the Nintendo DS has been heralded for is its ability to handle decidedly PC-oriented genres such as strategy and adventure games. Well, at least strategy games. With the exception of last year's delightfully crazy Phoenix Wright, most of the attempts to bring adventure games to the DS haven't quite panned out, either because of short length, inadequate story, or off-kilter mechanics. Atlus' Touch Detective is no different.
  • Pros: Cute, loveable characters with some legitimately funny dialogue, Cases can take a decent amount of time to complete, Colorful art style and a nice soundtrack
  • Cons: An endless array of ridiculously unintuitive puzzles that don't even make sense in the context of this nonsensical game, No depth to the gameplay beyond basic pixel hunting and random item combining

  • Conclusion: Un jeu nouveau, qui même s’il demeure une suite change en tout point ce que l’on a l’habitude de voir. Un humour plus que présent qui nous fait oublier parfois la simplicité du titre ou nos difficultés à se déplacer. Touch Detective est au final un point & click qui nous propose une interactivité appréciable, dans le cadre d’enquêtes où les rencontres sont nombreuses et les personnages charismatiques.
