Not bad...

GamerGirly, Amazon
27 July 2009
  • Summary: This was my very first DS game I played other than Brain Age(if you call that a game) It wasn't too bad of a game, I thought it was fun enough that I bought and play the Touch Detective 2 1/2...this first game I think is way better than the 2nd game. It was kind of cute and entertaining and the story line isn't to bad. If you can get this for a cheap price, then it's worth playing, but not worth $20 in my opinion.

Very Cute, But a Little Slow

S. Thompson, Amazon
26 June 2007
  • Summary: Stylistically this game is a gem. It's got a very creepy/cute vibe to it that can't be beat. The story and characters are charmingly weird. The game play is where this product gets bogged down. Each situation requires clicking the right place or using the right item. Most of the time the answer is obvious, but there are many situations where the item you need makes no sense.

It doesn't last too long

L. Vega "The Angry Elf", Amazon

  • Summary: I wish I bought this used. Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but it's way too easy to beat. And what the heck is up with that box upstairs that you can't open and that one girl that just won't talk to you in the condo?! I only got jammed up once in the whole game. In all, it took me only 3 days to finish and that's only playing after work. Maybe it would be good for a really young age group.

It's OK, but not great

L. Shofner "Videographer/Programmer", Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: I was thinking that this game would be a lot of fun based on reviews here and the description of the game. However, I was disappointed. I loved Trace Memory, though that game was VERY short. Touch Detective though, not as fun. It seems very tedious and a lot of backtracking. There aren't really a lot of "clues" so much as only so many things you can do before you do the right one. I purchased it used from a kid down the street.

Atlus Tried ...

Koopa In A Half Shell "The Red One", Amazon
13 June 2007
  • Summary: For the number of really decent games Atlus has put out for the DS, there has to be some really mediocre ones that didn't quite live up to its expectations. Although Atlus is known for its innovative style, Touch Detective fell short on my expectations, leaving me with a feeling that Touch Detective was nothing more than an overly complicated, nitpicky on detail spin-off of a more popular detective/evidence game already available on the DS (yes, I'm speaking of Phoenix...

Very fun; but disappointingly short.

S. Stansell "ChibiXzaide", Amazon
20 March 2007
  • Summary: I played this game all the way through in a relatively short amount of time. Its fun; and the graphics are adorable; and the characters are highly amusing. Kids would like it, but I think only adults could fully appreciate it. On the downside; it is disappointingly short, with no replay value to speak of. Get it if you don't mind the fact that you'll probably never play it again after you finish it.

very interesting but too short

sarah "unsane86", Amazon

  • Summary: i really enjoyed this game. once i started playing i didn't want to put it down. there are only 4 real cases and they are pretty simple to figure out. i wish there were more cases in addition the extras. i finished the game pretty quick still wanting more. it's a good game but it would have been better if there had just been more.

Worth a look, maybe

N. Durham "Big Evil", Amazon
12 January 2007
  • Summary: Remember point and clicker games? They were popular on the PC for ages with games like the Myst series and the 7th Guest, but have all but disappeared over the past few years. Touch Detective for the DS is about as close to a point and clicker as one could get, as it provides an entertaining mystery adventure, but is all way too linear for it's own good.

A lot of style and not much substance...

Eon Fontes May "Professional Role Model", Amazon
5 January 2007
  • Summary: I have to say, I really enjoyed this game. The interface is intuitive, the visuals are unique, and the overall atmosphere is well-developed. Yes, the world is pretty surreal, but that's part of its charm. The cases are original and definitely bizarre (for example, your first mission is to discover who is stealing your friend's dreams). I couldn't put the game down and finished it in a day. So why the 3 star rating? Well, it is very linear.

Touchy

Lestor neeker Wong, Amazon
25 November 2006
  • Summary: The DS seems to be the perfect platform for point-and-click adventures, and it's not a surprise to find another quirky mystery game making its way into the library. As far as Touch Detective goes, however, do not expect it to be as compelling as the Phoenix Wright series. Instead, what you would get is a somewhat nonsensical plot involving missing dreams, relocating aliens and an assault case involving fleas. Gameplay in Touch Detective is as simple as it gets.
