What a scoop! Mr. Black was holding a party at his extravagant mansion last night, and he's woken up dead! Obviously, one of the guests did it - but who? Was it the vixen, Scarlet? The brutish Mustard? The smooth-talking Green? The rich, blue blooded Peacock? ...or someone else? Take up the role of a reporter, and figure out whodunnit before your editor, Braunmann, sends the story to presses in Clue.
Clue is a game inspired by the board game of the same name. Rather than being identical to the original game, the goal in this version of the game is to work out where the crime took place, who committed the crime, and what was used by interrogating those at the crime scene and examining suspicious places in each room. You'll be given useful information which will reveal the locations of most (if not all) characters and weapons, as well as find out the cause of Black's demise.
You'll be racing against the clock with each case - you've got to make your deadline. Talking to a character knocks 2 minutes from the clock, searching an object takes 4 minutes per object, and traveling to another location takes 1 minute per room you travel through. You've got to be careful not to waste time!
At any time, you can check your Crime Map to move elsewhere in the house, look at your notes (these keep track of important clues that you've discovered for reference), and view your Suspicions to mark off any characters, objects or rooms that have been cleared.
