A Case for Cap & Co

aka: Ein Fall für Mütze & Co
Macintosh Specs [ all ]


Karin's dog was kidnapped and the gangsters ask for one million pounds as ransom! Of course she and her two detective friends Billy and Cap can't let this stand and start their investigation at once. The three kids explore the city which is represented by first-person still images. Other screens are reached by clicking on the entry from an adjoining screen, using the overhead map or using the frequent traffic sings which lead to the most important locations.

The goal is fill the notebook with clues which help to identify the perpetrators. This is mostly done by speaking with the people around town. However, sometimes there are also puzzles to solve by using items bought in the store. The player controls only one kid at a time; the active one can be switched at their treehouse. This is necessary because each protagonist has their own skills and strengths which are required to progress.
