Interactive today announces the release of The Lost Cases of Sherlock
Holmes, a whodunit casual computer game of theft, espionage and murder in
which the player must tap their own powers of observation to solve puzzles
and identify the culprits. The game is now available for download at
The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes is the first computer game officially
licensed by the Conan Doyle Estate. It features familiar personalities
including Sherlock Holmes, Watson, Mycroft, Inspector Lestrade and more than
100 historical characters that will launch players into the world of the
eccentric and famous detective. For each of the 16 individual cases, an
overall storyline is revealed and a list of potential suspects is whittled
down until the perpetrator is ultimately exposed.
In each case, set in Victorian London, players encounter the following
puzzles: a hidden object puzzle, Sudoku, find the difference puzzle, and a
picture memory game. There are also additional puzzles and mini-games such
as anagrams, cryptograms and jigsaw memory games, which are available at
various levels. Legacy has gone to great lengths to insure that the puzzles
and mini-games are relevant to the period and storyline of the game as the
player journeys from locales such as the British Museum, Big Ben, Kew
Gardens, the Royal Theater and others in search of clues that are then
evaluated back at 221b Baker Street.
