Nick Chase: A Detective Story is a well written and developed title that fans of puzzle games will enjoy. The gameplay is very enjoyable and entertaining and the presentation is fantastic. It’s a bit of a shame to see the story mode end when it does, but you won’t have any hesitations in playing it again. So if you’re a fan of film noir or are looking for a worthwhile puzzle game, then look no further.
With a slick graphic novel style and varied gameplay, there's no doubt that after mere minutes with Nick Chase: A Detective Story you'll let him be your private eye.
A huge success on every front, Nick Chase: A Detective Story goes above and beyond the hidden object/adventure game genre with a great storyline, believable atmosphere, and more gritty detective references than you can shake a fedora hat and magnifying glass at.
Overall, though, HOG and adventure fans should feel this game is worth the investment. Some mini-games accessible from the main menu (and different than the ones during the game) add some replayability, too, including clever clones of Pong and Breakout (a.k.a. Arkanoid). Be sure to download Nick Chase to "investigate" its worth during the free trial.
I liked the game, but it did feel a little awkward as an iPhone port. Definitely there’s a lot of substance here, and I would be glad to see more games of this type available, but more attention needs to be placed on making the touch controls seamless when porting the game from the computer version. All the same, if you’re into gritty detective fiction and casual games, you can’t go wrong with Nick Chase.
