July 15th, 2005 â€“ It was a rainy day in the big apple when it came into our office. Crime Puzzle (www.paprikari.com), a sweet little number dressed up in more fur than a kennel. It was another of Paprikariâ€™s kids, a kooky family that brought DDD pool into our office less than one year ago. Seems this time theyâ€™ve gotten themselves mixed up in a bit of a puzzleâ€¦ a puzzle involving stamps.
Welcome to Crime Puzzle, where you take the role of detective tracking a trail of missing stamps. Match the clues (stamps) together and you will wind up traveling across the world in pursuit of these strange would-be thieves. Crime Puzzle plays like a classic puzzle game with story elements from the 50s detective series. So toss on a trench coat, classy hat, and a disheveled business suit (suspenders included) and solve the crime of the decade!
Crime Puzzle features three modes of play including the Mystery Mode where you must track down a stamp thief across the world. In addition to the story method, you can challenge yourself to a timed game where you must fill up the timer before it runs out by matching stamps. If you arenâ€™t feeling up to a mental challenge take the game into relaxed mode where you have as much time as youâ€™d like to make as many matches as possible. Crime Puzzle features upbeat jazz music and the chance to play detective in the time of smoking guns and fur-lined coats.
Crime Puzzle comes with a free demo version that lets you experience the game before you purchase it. The demo is available from www.paprikari.com.
