This was a very fun and creative mystery franchise! The difficulty was perfectly balanced, i didn’t have any difficulty with any of the challenges or puzzles existing in the game. It is still one of the best and most played mystery point-click franchises out there, with an interesting artistic view and a great understanding of puzzles and challenges.
