Description

A British private investigator named James must retrieve a map, stolen recently from a London museum. The map is rumored to contain directions to a secret treasure.

Detective Agency is a hidden object game with all the common trappings of the genre. As usual, the objective is to search the screen and collect every single item from a list at the bottom, that shows either words or silhouettes, on scenes filled with scattered objects. The hint button is a magnifying glass, showing the remaining number of uses in the middle of the lenses, that highlights the position of one of the required items when clicked. Extra hints can be found and collected on the scenery as small magnifiers.

Bonus games appear from time to time, and are the standard classic mini-games found on similar titles. There's a concentration game, a Pipe Dream implementation and other logic puzzles.
