    "Playing detective is the best game ever. I like that it is mentally challenging as the game increases in level and but it is fun to play. The only setback is that you have to wait for your lives or hearts to fill back up and it can take an hour or more to do so before you can play fully again."

    "Who Is The Killer? Episode 1 is a relatively fun detective game for Android. The puzzles are okay, but the game ends up being pretty monotonous by the end. Maybe good to play through once."

    "The Blacklist has such amazing potential as a classic detective game, but it's got so many problems right now! Random drop of internet connectivity and no updates with new cases in quite awhile now. Might want to skip this title to see if the devs ever update it again. You can't even accumulate saved stars while we're all waiting for new levels - they just *poof* disappear. Come on devs - don't leave us all hanging, please."
