Set in the sleepy village of Little Riddle, the main aim of the game is to follow clues to find the murderer. Along the way you'll also encounter a variety of different and challenging puzzles which help you move through the peaceful world of Little Riddle. You play as one of the four members of the Blue Toad Detective Agency. The game can be played solo, or with up to three friends. As one of the detectives you move around the village by selecting locations on the map. Visit the doctor at his surgery and hear his flimsy alibi. Meet with the Station Master and learn his motive.

At the end of every episode you will be asked to choose your suspect before the true culprit is revealed and exposed in all their criminal capacities! Will your powers of deductive thinking and reflective reasoning make you a star detective?
