About

Forget Holmes. Forget Poirot. Detective Daniel Wilkins is the man for the job! SLEUTH (2020) is a rebooted "idiotic point and click" version of the original 1983 text-based “whodunit” DOS game of the same title. A murder has taken place at Bastard Estate and you must interrogate the resident houseguests to find the murderer. Be quick, or else the murderer may decide to get rid of you first! As is customary in these sort of detective games, you should also find the murder weapon for good measure.

I love the writing, it is very funny and clever. The randomness of the game is really nice too. It took me a few tries, but I managed to finally solve one. The graphics, while simple, are cute and the animations are a nice touch. Fun game!

Entertaining voice acting!

By JoseanCastillo on 12 Dec 2020
It's not a graphic adventure but a kind of simplified "Cluedo" game. No puzzles to resolve...just find a pair of items and talk with a few characters to decide who's the killer. That's all.

Somehow, despite the simplicity of its gameplay and graphics, it's highly replayable as far as the items, criminals, characters and killer are made in a procedural way...so, every game is different from another.

Love it. It's a the kind of game I will play again every now and then. It would be perfect with a save function.
