About

9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek is an original hidden-object puzzle-adventure game, featuring a totally unique Detective Mode. This thrilling mystery merges elements of classical horror and gritty, 50’s-style noir. A paranormal private investigator is contacted by her friend, famous reporter Helen Hunter, whose voice sounds small and terrified in the voicemail. She is in the coastal town of Serpent Creek, and needs help immediately. But upon arriving in Serpent Creek, the detective finds no trace of Ms. Hunter. Weirder still is the fact the town’s streets are crawling with snakes, and the citizens seem to be sleepwalking through life. The ground shakes with violent tremors. When investigating Serpent Creek, the detective will perform true investigative work: finding clues and combining them to learn the secrets of every crime scene in the all new Detective Mode! Features Unique Detective Mode gameplay Eerie, realistic settings Mysterious crime story set in 1950’s America Challenging mini-games Complex characters with real motivations Detective’s Journal that includes current tasks and character index Unique locations Breathtaking plot full of unexpected twists

9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek is a Hidden Object game from Tap it Games. Our Heroine, a Detective, is summoned by her Friend Helen to a small Town where strange Things are going on. You can also observe them yourself, hardly that you have arrived in front of your Hotel. All People behave either very suspiciously or strangely and to top it all off, Helen has also disappeared. So begins the Search for the Girlfriend and an Answer to the Question of what's going wrong in this City. Actually a very nice Detective Story, however, it is too easy to see who the Villains are. In addition, I found most people very unsympathetic and/or annoying. This is especially true for the Protagonist, who more than once refuses to open Containers or climb stairs simply because they are smeared with Oil, for example, even though her Friend's Life or even her own depends on it. The Gameplay is very Genre typical, you move the Heroine from Background to Background, look for Objects with Which you can start something, look through Hidden Object and solve a Puzzle every now and then. In addition, there are the "Detective Sequences," which is also a Kind of Hidden Object. However, there are not any Objects that you should find, but you have to click on everything that looks "suspicious." The Difficulty is quite low, almost all Puzzles are very easy and quick to solve. For the slightly lazier players, of course, there is also a Hint Option and the Ability to skip Puzzles. Apart from this, there is still a small Side task, which consists of finding Question Marks (?), which is also quite demanding or requires a good Eye. Graphically, the Game is quite ok. Most of The Figures look quite good and the Backgrounds and especially the Hidden Obmous pictures are very detailed. Add to That the Films that are okay, too. The Sound has been pretty good for the Developers. The Characters are well set to music and the Music fits the respective Situations very well. Especially the slightly "scarier" Scenes are very well accompanied by the Sound and create a Touch of Horror even in such a game. Overall, a solid Hidden Object Game. Genrefans can take a Look at it and due to the low Degree of difficulty it is also suitable for Beginners. But Is definitely Waiting for a 50% or more sale because the current 10 Euros, in my Opinion, it is not Worth it with only 2-4 Hours of Play.
