Summary: Parents need to know that this game has a slightly eerie tone that could frighten younger children. The environments - static images with objects hidden in them - are sometimes creepy crime scenes. The game also discusses murder, arson, and assault in dialogue scenes, though none of these crimes are graphically shown. Overall, this fun hidden object game is as appropriate as most mystery fiction aimed at the target age.
