Dinertown Detective Agency

The search is on for WhoDunIt in Dinertown!

Something’s not right in DinerTown™! Help Bernie the Bookworm become a real detective as you hunt down clues for big cases like “Who stuck their finger in all the jelly donuts?” and “Who keeps calling my house and asking for Mildred?” While you are tackling those big cases you might just come across a real mystery that
affects everyone in DinerTown. Use the items you find in the crime scenes to narrow
your list of suspects and ID the culprit as you search out the fun in this lighthearted spoof on traditional Hidden Object games.

DinerTown Detective Agency™ takes the Hidden Object genre to the next level by building on traditional hunt and seek gameplay. The game offers a series of entertaining logic puzzles that allow the player to act as a real detective and use
the objects they need to solve the mysteries for themselves.

How to Play

The object of the game is to go beyond finding objects in a scene and actually use the items you find to ID the right suspects and solve the case! Start by searching each scene for clues using the naked eye and the forensic tools provided as part of your detective kit. Then narrow down the suspects by playing one of a series of mini-games that are unique to each case. Finally you will ID the culprit by solving a puzzle based on the clues you found to figure out whodunit and move on to
the next big case!

Tips & Tricks

• Use the forensics tools from your detective kit to help you find hidden evidence
• In the assembly search screens, once you complete an object you can then use that object to uncover additional clues and items in the same screen
• Make sure you listen to all of Bernie’s theories when trying to ID the culprit for each case

Hobbit Hollow Review:

DinerTown Detective Agency finally answers the burning question of what books Bernie was always reading while patiently waiting in line at Flo's Diner. Detective magazines, of course! For the low, low Internet price of $99, you too can earn your P.I. badge and solve mysteries with your Big Corporate Detective Kit! Along the way, meet up with many of the famous faces and visit the landmarks of DinerTown.

Each of the 25 "cases" begins with a hidden object scene, several of which involve 2 correlating scenes to move through. Playing in Timed Mode allows us to use the tools from Bernie's detective kit to aid our search. A magnifying glass, a dropper, and a fingerprint brush all work equally well to find the smallest items, invisible to the naked eye. Quickly canvas the entire screen with either the dropper or fingerprint brush to find all 3 items quickly and get back to the hidden objects and the clock. The magnifying glass takes a bit longer, but each found item glows to assist you.

Dinertown Detective Agency puzzles consist of fingerprint matching, sequential organizing, and straight forward jigsaw puzzles. These were all particularly easy for a beginner. After completing the puzzles, informants are available to assist you with narrowing down your culprit list if Bernie's 3 clues haven't led you to the correct suspect.

For highest scoring purposes, search through each hidden object scene quickly. Always make sure you find the P.I. badge in each hog scene. This will only add 100 per level, but 5 minutes to your time. Try not to use the "Hint" option, it will add 500 to your score each level that you do not use it in. Time penalties are accessed for clicking too quickly in the hog scenes. No penalties are accessed for making incorrect guesses during the fingerprint puzzles or when naming the guilty party. Just try again!

For a more relaxed game, play the Story Mode, which gives you cases to solve without the timer, however, also without the detective tools.
