Great game, needs work though.

To be honest, I was a little skeptical on whether this game would be any good, mainly because I have a dislike for translated games because they sometimes turn out bad, and I have an OCD for grammar and little things like incomplete drawings or whatever (not that I've seen any) and becaus I never really was a huge fan of anime because of the typical anime I've seen where characters act too cute and whatnot, which in my opinion gets very irritating and sickening to hear very fast. What I DID see, and I'm not sure if they were intentional, and by the way I am only at the very beginning, were a few letters or words missing which I was able to let slide by, for example something like Holmes saying "I take the case" instead of "I'll take the case". There were also some font colors missing and misplaced, like a comma being the color blue while everything else is white, which doesn't really matter, and when the name Sherlock Holmes is mentioned while only the first name is blue and the rest is white. So really, just extremely minor stuff, everything seems to be doing fine, the artwork is extravagantly interesting, and the conversations (as almost every anime does) between Holmes and Watson contain good childish humor, which is always fun to watch between the two. Only one little thing bothered me about Holmes but it's a little opinionated, seeing how he was made out as extremely ignorant to the law. Yes, his mind is more focused on the game of the crime, but coming from The Sign of Four, A Case of Identity, and The Boscombe Valley Mystery (there are probably more, but I haven't read that far yet) Holmes seemed to pay some more attention to his clients and victims. Especially in A Case of Identity and Boscombe Valley, where **(spoilers)** he completely considers the lady's feelings towards what has happened between her and her nonexistent to-be-husband by scaring off the imposter, and Holmes also puts it in his agenda to prove the innocence of young McCarthy deriving from the facts and the look on young Miss Turner's eyes, all of which in my eyes shows Holmes believes in justice being properly dished out in front of the courthouse on a special platter made especially for the criminals **(end spoilers)**, wherein this game he is arrogant as hell. Just a little too much, at least. Nevertheless, the game, I will confidently say from where I am at to this moment, is amazing in almost every perspective. Unfortunately, I'm slightly sexist, and don't appreciate being a woman in the game, especially when Watson is supposed to be a man, but that doesn't bother me much. Very, VERY great game to relax to, 0.99c is absolutely nothing and I believe that this game deserves to be given more, therefore everyone should consider this price a blessing and should give it a chance. I really do hope you continue this game, as this is the only application to have caught my full attention, and that should say something. To end this, I'll say that if I could rate this any higher, after finishing the game, and depending on how the game ends, I would add additional stars.

Good health, and good luck,

EDIT: Y'know, I wasn't really expecting the price to raise after me saying that lol. That makes me feel a little bad for the people who may have thought about buying this back then (unless you were already planning on raising it, and I got lucky). Oh well, it's only about $2. I do think this app should be polished before raising the price though, some of the little stuff I'm seeing makes it look a tad unprofessional.

Also, just finished the game. I was a little upset because of how short it was, but nevertheless it was good. The mild errors gradually increased, as I had to figure out what was being said occasionally. There was also a problem with using the Load button whilst playing the game, after clicking it the game crashed, just letting you know. Other than that, I really hope you guys extend this game, it was a pleasure playing it.

4/5 stars

Great Game!

I really enjoyed playing this game though I did notice several grammar errors. Watson is supposed to be a man and is referred to as a man but is shown a woman. Slightly confused by this, though it doesn't bother me too much.

Having read The Reigate Squires/Puzzle before even getting my iTouch, I knew who had commited the crime though I did enjoy the extra twist (not saying because it would ruin the game for those who haven't finished it yet.)
