Gameplay consists of highlighting text obtained by interrogation or search to record them as clues (or “premises” in the game’s lingo) in your notebook. Then you must combine these premises logically to derive the solution. This novel method makes for a mostly static and “dry” game consisting of reams of text, but patient Sherlock Holmes fans who cherish abstract deduction will find this an ideal game to follow in Holme’s footsteps.
