Default List of detective / murder mystery games

Hi all!

As a big fan of detective movies/books/games, I intend to make the big list of iOS detective/murder mystery games.

I try to edit my first post according to the games we find out (and I'll make categories too in the future), so please bring in everything, that has some murder and detective work in it. Also, please suggest a game only if it's good, we don't need unplayable or plain bad cr*p here.

So, what I've played and enjoyed so far:
- Cause of Death (visual novel like, with some player choices)
- Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy (adventure like, get it NOW)
- Special Enquiry Detail: The Hand that Feeds (hidden object like)
- Special Enquiry Detail: Engaded to Kill (sequel to the other S.E.D. game)
- Layton Brothers: Mystery Room (Phoenix Wright like)
- Murder Files (puzzle game with traditional whodunnit choices)
- The Secret of Chateau de Moreau (adventure with puzzles, very good one!)
- Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery (light hearted, with puzzles)
- The Last Express (real time adventure, good one)
- Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective (somewhat puzzle like, great artstyle)
- Lots of G5 and Big Fish Games releases, I will research them more, and list the exact detective game titles. They're mostly hidden object games though.

If anyone knows of other good games which focus on murder mysteries, then please list them, so I can add them to the list!

Batman games!

G5 Entertainment and Big Fish games... Tons of them are mystery/detective stories.
Jacob Jones - This one is on the lighthearted detective side of things, but pretty awesome game

Thanks for the suggestions, I've put them in the list, also I've added 'The Last Express' too.

I do not really consider the Batman games detective stories, so I've left them out, but if there's one that's a more traditional detective game than an action packed superhero game, then let me know! :-)

Also, I've found this one, and I'm kinda psyched about it now:
