If you’ve played a hidden object iPhone game before then it’s safe to say that you’ll know what to expect. Women’s Murder Club: Death in Scarlet is the latest entry to the genre and not only offers players gameplay that requires a sharp eye for detail, but also a new adventure in author James Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club universe. You’ll play as characters from the book series and you'll work together in order to solve this murder mystery.
As you travel to different locations in order to chase leads and search for clues, players must find all items on a checklist in order to proceed to the next level and continue their investigation. Players tap on objects once they find them and clear them from the list. You’ll also mix things up and solve other puzzles in order to find an extra clue or vital piece of evidence.
The game’s 2D visuals are matched with those from the original PC game, as is the sound. But while players are unable to use their iPod during the game, they are treated to six sample audio book chapters from James Patterson’s book ‘The 8th Confession’. This is a nice bonus for players but certainly isn’t the most appealing feature to purchase the game.
If you’re a fan of the original game or the writing of James Paterson then Women’s Murder Club Death in Scarlet will quench any thirst for mystery a player may have. You might be disappointed however by the game’s short length and the less than exciting gameplay but these are minor issues in this hidden object port.
