Default Jim & Frank Mysteries intro sale, iPad & iPhone FREE along with DLC.

Note: The developer extended the sale! Yay, nice!




iPhone version link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id592087213

If you're a fan of Professor Layton, then you'll love the puzzle-filled adventures of Jim and Frank. This used to be owned by Chillingo, but the contract ran out and the developers have taken it back and are self-publishing it instead.

There are opening screen ads, but nothing too obnoxious, and hints IAP. The game is being released temporarily free only till 4th April 23:55 Hours PST (the developer extended the sale!), and the additional chapters, which you'll find in the in-game store, are free during that time as well. If you want this, download and install it now, then open up the store (found under options) and grab chapters 2, 3, and 4 while they're free too.

I grabbed the iPhone version... it's almost done downloading, I'll grab the other chapters asap. Thanks for the heads up on the game, it looks like something I'd enjoy.

Bizarre, given the developer's own posting the the exact time, and this is nowhere near that. Hopefully they'll chime in sometime about the reason for the change, especially since there was extremely little notice given to former owners of this game that this was happening. I didn't find out until this morning, when Appspy tweeted about it!

Wow, I must have just gotten in under the wire. I'm glad I didn't hesitate. Game plus all IAP chapters, free.

Maybe they screwed up the conversion from 12 hour to 24 hour time format, considering it's 0830 PST right now.

Ok, sale is over but incase the switch gets flipped back on I have to say the game does have some pretty nice production values. Early on the game has a lot of voice acting but then that goes away as the main game kicks in to gear (it said it would return though). The overall graphics are top of the line, and even on the small screen it's not a pain to find the hidden money in each scene or complete puzzles and stuff. I think the game is probably very kid friendly, but maybe more a 10 year old than a 5 year old. Still, plenty of reading in there too so I'm going to hook my kids up and see how the younger two do.

I was concerned for a moment about the IAP chapters because the download got corrupted and failed. But I was trying to do that over 3G because my iPhone has a wireless issue. But after putting the phone in the freezer for 10 min, my wifi was back long enough to restart the download and get it completed in a mater of a couple minutes.

Overall a pretty nice little game.

About my 25th attempt at finishing the mandatory download of the "Retina textures..."

Kind of hoping it eventually finishes (without corruption) so I can try to pick up the chapters...

Edit: See? I just had to waste the time posting... all better now, chapters downloading. A hearty thank you to 99G-OPL!
