If you like Cluedo or Clue, we think you'll love this new game.
CSI Sherlock is a whodunit game, where the victim, Vic, has been murdered in the Bates Hotel. The CSI team have finished their work, and the famous detective Sherlock Holmes has been called in to see who murdered Vic.
A full picture has now been built up and they know who killed Vic, what weapon was used, and the location in or around the hotel in which the murder took place.
The challenge for you, as Sherlock's assistant, is to work this out for yourself, based on clues that your mentor Sherlock has available to give to you.
Sherlock gives you one clue, associated with Vic. You then have to ask Sherlock for additional clues associated with a given person, weapon or place.
Each clue takes the form Person:Weapon:Place representing 3 relationships: Person is with Weapon; Person is in Place; and Weapon is in Place, together with a score saying how many of the 3 are true.
You can focus in on certain people, weapons or places, by bringing all given clues associated with them to the top of the list.
When you think you know the murderer, the murder weapon and the murder location, you can identify these in the Accused row, and check to see whether you are correct.
You can get full explanations of how a particular conclusion could be reached with all available clues.
Elementary? It depends on you and the level you play at. The higher the level, the more suspects and the deeper the reasoning required. And can you get the correct answer in the suggested time? Time is running out.
