Summary: Yes, finally! I've been wanting to play this game for ages! It just looks so cute, and I love adventure games, so I've been looking forward to this one for awhile. It took me so long to get my hands on it though simply because I haven't been able to afford it for awhile and I had a bunch of other games in my backlog that I needed to play. Well, now that I've played it, let's just say that it's quite different from my original expectations...
Summary: This is the kind of game that you can play and finish, then come back a while later and finish it again. Well, that's how it is for me, at least. The art is very cute and the music (while sometimes repetitive and annoying) is very appropriate. You play as Mackenzie, a young detective that has yet to be acknowledged. She goes about with her mushroom friend Funghi, and they solve small cases brought to her by friends.
Summary: The first thing I'm going to say about this game is it's charming and cute. The second thing I'll say is it delivered far less than the potential it had. And the third? It still delivered enough for it to be an excellent game. So, in Touch Detective you're a cute little detective walking around looking for clues on cases. The cases are always given to you by Penelope, whom is a bizarre peer that likes bananas. Yup, the game is very weird, but also entertaining. Realism?
Summary: This is a fun game. I do enjoy puzzles, including mysteries. This time I feel like being very cut and dry; I shall give you the cons and pros in that order. Cons: 1. Replayability. As sad as it is for me to say, I often try to avoid "Detective" games because once you solve the mysteries, there's little to no replayability. This one is no exception: once you complete the four main mysteries, your best chance of replayability is in the Bonus episode. Even that is limited.
Summary: It's a very fun game. If you enjoy detective type of game, you'll enjoy this one. It's pretty short though. It only took me three days to beat it. However, I sure had fun during the process. There's some humor in it, too. Chloe is a pretty funny character. The graphic is pretty and the music is great.
Summary: I got this game because I love playing role playing mystery game. The graphic & charaters are cute and very easy to get the hang of it w/o reading the instruction. I love the stories and I actually finished solving (w/o seeking help online) all the cases after 1-2 weeks of playing. The only that I will complain is that the game is too short. No fun to play/resolve the mysteries again.
Summary: This is overall a cute game. The characters are funny. It makes excellent use of the DS stylus and is easy to play. It is a completely linear mystery game, meaning you cannot do steps in any other order. There is only one outcome, so you can't screw up. This is nice in the way that its more like reading a comic book mystery, but sometimes not so fun if you can't figure out what the heck to do next.
Summary: (MINOR SPOILERS FOLLOW.) Touch Detective is a point-and-click adventure game, much like Trace Memory, or Phoenix Wright without the courtroom scenes. You go around talking to people and looking at objects to find clues. Sometimes you'll interact with items to solve problems, all using the stylus. The interface couldn't be easier. You tap a spot on the screen to have Mackenzie go there, or examine an object.
Summary: Quite simply, it's great, though a bit on the challenging side. Gorgeous art style and some great music come together for an atmospheric title, and one that, despite it's 'rated 'E' for everyone' approach, will appeal to adults as well as kids. It's not without some light frustration, but the good far outweighs the bad. Ignore the mediocre reviews and pick this one up. Replay value is in the four different cases, as well as some unlockable minigames and a 'touch' list.
