Good Mystery Games

Are there any good mystery games on the iphone? I'm not looking for ones that heavily rely on those hidden image things. I'm talking about searching for clues, interviewing people, and charging someone with crimes. Something like Phoenix Wright or Hotel Dusk.

Gemini Rue
Chaos Rings (all 3 titles have a great sense of mystery to purpose and reason)
Jim and Frank Mysteries (lighthearted, but pretty well done, similar to Layton games)

I guess some HdO titles are ok, but some not so.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective.

It's a little similar to Phoenix Wright, but the gameplay is more interactive and have a great story. You will enjoy it.

I dig it, but then I dig that type of game. G5 is really hard to miss with, imho...


I could never give up.
