Miss Fisher and the Deathly Maze game was released on Wednesday and now that I have had a chance to play it I thought I would post my review.
The game sees you on the hunt for Murdock Foyle after he fakes his own hanging with help from a prison guard and escapes.
The sexual tension between Phryne and Jack which was ever present in the TV series is also present in the game as is the on going struggle between Hugh and Dot as to whether she should be working now they are married.
While the game is entertaining and well written and Phryne has some great one liners it is very much a linear storybook and you cannot proceed in the story without finding the clues needed or making deductions required and there is little skill involved other than making sure you have clicked on everything, said everything and tried to match every clue to make a deduction. You have no say over who you think was the murderer or how to proceed. In this sense I was a little disappointed with the game as I would like to have seen a game in which there were different outcomes depending on your decisions. I also thought that the $4.49 price tag was a little steep considering the first chapter took me under an hour to complete and as yet there is no word as to when the next chapter will be released and whether you will be charged for subsequent chapters.
