Police Precinct: Online is a cooperative board game of skill and strategy for board game lovers. Based on the popular board game by Common Man Games, Police Precinct challenges you to work as a team in order to clean-up crime in the city and put this murderer in jail.

Police Precinct is a cooperative board game where you have to solve a murder while also trying to keep the crime rate below a specified level. Each player is a police officer with a different specialty that affects what actions they excel at.

There is also a mechanic that allows one player to be a "dirty cop" and work against the other cops by lying and hiding evidence. If found out, the dirty cop is exposed and is less effective, but can still stay in the game and do alternate actions.

I'm very impressed that the app only requires iOS 6. Haven't given it a shot yet, but I'm looking forward to trying it out. My wife and I love co-op board games.

The price of this app is $8.99, in case it is displaying improperly.

Interesting Game

So, it says it's $2.99 here in TA, but then it's $8.99 in the App Store. Ironic- Highway Robbery coming from a game about enforcing the law.

Information on this game has been sparse.

Anyone have any info/impressions?

I know the price is probably not in the category to give a try simply out of curiousness.

After few searches, ran into Tom Vasel review of the board game which he highly recommended, so I took the plung!
My initial impressions:
Cons:
- no real tutorial, just static pages explaining the rules and the game with link to pdf and vid link to Vasel
- no AI
- only pass/play mode or online

Pros:
- polished graphics as u pan around the map
- UI seems clean and quick
- even without AI, one can play as solo game to control all the cops

I will update more as I play and read the rules uh.... Hate reading all the rules...

No tutorial? Arrgh! Money hold back. May be I should wait for Dungoneering next week.

BTW, I read from BGG this game is Kickstarted not long ago and that US$2.99 is intended for the backers (due to a current backer reward fiasco) and it raises back to "normal" price when the backers have got their rewards.

Edit: hang on! The app description says there is online mulitplayer though.

While no tutorial per se, they walk you through a lot of your first play through, kind of like the first time a mechanic comes up you'll get a little tutorial like message explaining it.

If you, like me, watch Tom Vasel's review of the physical board game and then attempt a game and read through the resulting tutorial message, you'll likely be 80% up to speed with the game's in-game manual filling in your final gaps.
