This looks interesting. I will be curious to see how compelling the single player mode is.

I have a lot of good memories of this game from my childhood. I wonder I'll find this as compelling as it is in my memories now that I've moved to more complex boardgames. Anyway, sur buy if no awful bug is reported before tomorrow morning.

Is online multiplayer asynchronous? In other words, can you leave the game and come back after a push notification?

I played the board version back in the days and it was a great fun game. Hopefully, the iOS touch control version and especially the multiplayer implementation will do the game justice... we'll see!

Default Game Impressions

Hmm, just won my very first game as Mr. X on "normal" difficulty against five (!) detectives without problems. (In the real boardgame, I never escaped four poorly talented human detectives...) Maybe the multiplayer part is where this app shines, but for solo-players I'm afraid is the Nintendo version still the better choice (where the computer player gave me a hard time already on the third campaign level). Stronger AI, Quick game and Campaign modes and more city maps... (It already had wireless multiplayer, too, which came in handy on our long holiday car drives back then.)

While the "isometric" night view on the iPad is beautiful, it is not without problems, e.g. when meeples block the view on other squares, or when you try to see, where the bus, metro etc. connections go (sorry for my mediocre english). The primitive NDS graphics, which were much more like the actual boardgame btw, were also much more functional in comparison, even on the smaller display. But then, graphics candy is important nowadays, and you get it here for sure.
