Mystery P.I.: The Curious Case of Counterfeit Cove

Reviewed by Cherie Jung

(December, 2012)

Picturesque Whalers Cove has been inundated with counterfeit money which threatens to ruin the tourist season for the locals. Players will head to the New England town to search for clues regarding where the phony bills are coming from and attempt to break up the counterfeit ring before the local economy is ruined.

This is a hidden object style game. Finding the hidden objects is at times quite challenging! Each scene also includes two special objects to be found — key(s) and lobster(s) — in order to unlock bonus material.

Keys and lobsters. Keys and lobsters. I found myself trying to ignore the list of hidden objects in each scene until after I'd found my keys and lobsters! It wasn't always easy to resist the list but for the most part I stuck with my plan. (Hint: if you miss a lobster or key, you'll get another chance to find them. Don't panic, as I did and start a whole new game.) The scenes are intriguing and some of the objects are really hard to find. At least they were for me! Still, the game is a lot of fun.

List price: $ 9.99, I purchased this game for $6.99 with an online 30% discount.
