Special Enquiry: Engaged to Kill HD
is a fun adventure/ hidden object/ puzzle blend where you will travel to various locations in search of a killer. You'll pick up clues along the way that will aid you in your search and you'll also have to root through nitty, gritty junk piles to find that one elusive piece of evidence, just like a real cop. There are even a few times where Special Enquiry: Engaged to Kill HD
pulls out something I've never seen before in a game of this type. You'll have to chase down a perp' and apprehend him or her. Now, since this isn't an action game, they do it in a very unique way – they basically take a standard adventure game puzzle and modify it to fit the scenario; instead of trying to block a virus from escaping a computer system (which is one variant I've seen), you'll see a top-down view of an area and little characters representing Turino and Lamonte, plus the suspect. By tapping to get Turino and/or Lamonte to run in a certain direction, you cause the suspect to run a different way in the hopes of blocking him in and apprehending him. It's a fun twist on a puzzle I've seen before, but I thought it was clever and unique way to present it.
The only downside I found to Special Enquiry: Engaged to Kill HD was the fact that Turino and Lamonte commented via text box continually and you had to tap to move things along to get past those boxes. Sometimes, they'd say inane things that didn't matter, but sometimes they said important stuff and, in my impatience to close yet another text box, I almost missed some things. Normally, I like reading the text boxes, but these came too often and sometimes required a couple of taps to make them proceed, which was annoying.
Overall, I found Special Enquiry: Engaged to Kill HD to be a lot of fun, even though the subject matter is pretty dark and violent. I had the killer pegged pretty early on, but they still threw a few curve balls before it all wrapped up. If you enjoy hidden object adventures, especially the ones with a focus on crime-solving, definitely check out Special Enquiry: Engaged to Kill HD today!
