If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good mystery. As an adult a child, I read every single Nancy Drew Hardy Boys book. Twice. Encyclopedia Brown and McGurk had nothing on me. Now, as the parent of an audacious 11-year old, my house is a swirling vortex of mystery and intrigue: Who ate these cookies? Who tracked mud all over the floor? Who spray-painted the hamster? I could go on, but I digress…

I also love iPhone games and, upon learning of 99Games Online’s upcoming mystery/puzzle game, The Jim and Frank Mysteries: The Blood River Files, I must admit: I can’t wait to get my hands on this game:

The Jim and Frank Mysteries: The Blood River Files centers around mysterious happenings in the town of Tinyville and leads its main characters, Jim and Frank, on an adventure-filled quest to uncover the mystery that is Blood River. In order to solve the mystery, players will be challenged to solve a series of challenging visual and analytical puzzles while advancing in the game.

The game features:

  • More than 20 hours of engaging game play spread across 4 chapters
  • 70 different kinds of puzzles and tasks
  • Entertaining mini-games
  • Over 90 beautiful hand-drawn scenes
  • 35 interesting characters
  • The Jim and Frank Mysteries: The Blood River Files appears to be a promising title in a relatively neglected genre. Look for it to hit the app store soon!
