In the darkness enveloping a city like any other, five exotic plants are the victims of a shocking event. There's no doubt, it’s a multiple plant murder.

The city is not particularly shocked by the tragic incident, but a multi-billionaire is willing to pay an outrageous amount of money to solve the mystery.

And who, if not Detective Gallo, can accept the challenge (and the generous advance of his client)?
For the most cynical and sarcastic detective there is, a case that starts as a trivial domestic accident will turn out to be the most intricate investigation his cactus (!) has ever seen...

Detective Gallo is a point&click comic-noir adventure that is entirely hand-illustrated and hand-animated, and whose protagonist is a feathered and grumpy private eye struggling with a very tricky case, bizarre characters, and puzzles that will put his insight and patience to the test.

A non-violent adventure, inspired to the classical Disney cartoons and the best point&click adventure game of the past!

Play as Gallo, a... rooster noir detective, and investigate on a multiple plant murder!

Meet lots of incredible characters, all hand-animated, frame-by-frame.

More than 15 locations and 10 hours of gameplay

Dozens and dozens of logical puzzles and quests!

Listen to over 60 minutes of original pure jazz-noir soundtrack!

Fully dubbed in English and Italian, with multilanguage support!

Detective Gallo reviews and comments

Translated by

The Pont 'n 'Click adventure is full of oblique Humour. Here may ignite a Gag or not. Taste. The Story is quite oblique and you're looking for a Killer. A Plant Killer. As oblique as Story and Gags are the Characters. Unfortunately, these are not all well done or engrossed. Only Main Character Gallo with its Rules and Cactus Love has been deepened. I liked the Graphic with the Drawings. The Melodies held in the Background underline the Detective Feeling. The Game time would even be loosely under 6 Hours if there were not one or the other Puzzle, which is not exactly logical. And that's where the biggest Nuisance lies, too. The Puzzles were not good. Sometimes illogical or too oblique. And if you are constantly alerted by the Character that you want to do something very crazy with the Objects, then that doesn't fit. After All, the Puzzles clearly reflect the crazy World of Gallo. I was hoping for more. Overall, a nice Adventure for in between. For a good Price quite playable! My personal Rating: Graphics 6/10 Sound 5/10 Puzzles 4/10 Game time 5/10 Total 5/10

You are Gallo, a detective l'imbut of himself and cynical who owns a small office in a neighborhood lame between a salesgirl of sweets in love with him (and at the limit of the harassment), a bar/disco unfrequented, a general salesman crooked and pingre, a dump and a chic neighborhood a little eccentric. You finally get your first call for a paid inquiry from a certain Phil Cloro: a mysterious assassin has killed all his plants and you need to find out helped your informant who this is as well as the murder weapon. But will it be so simple? The +:-menu/post original credits. -The graphics remind many of those of a certain famous duck without falling into plagiarism and are enjoyable, and the animations well done. -The general atmosphere between humor and polar is well rendered (though I would have preferred it to be blackest, but that's just my opinion). The story (except a few reversations of cool situations) and the characters are not very original but allow to plant well (if I dare say) the scenery. -I have not tried the doublings in Italians but those in English are very good, as well as subtitles adapted according to the character. The dialogues are pretty well found and not that childish. -Pretty good lifespan to find trophies/all clues. -The game tells you a way but does not take you by the hand, it's good to look for. The-:-as in most games of the genre, some objects/characters are under exploited (the customers of the shops especially, where a secondary quest seems to be Utting and... nothing.) and sometimes not logical solutions at all. -Too expensive for the genre, 8-10 euros would be fairer. A humorous survey of Disney inspiration for the whole family, to be taken preferably on sale. 13.5/20
