Does not save progress!
by NickNeiim on 2020/09/24 18:51
So each chapter needs to be completed in one sitting or restarted every time. In sore need of a fix.
Great game
by KellyW9602 on 2020/08/30 01:10
I love these types of games. The logic puzzles kept me engaged. I did have to cheat a bit....some were really hard.
This game could use some work...
by Brynsdad on 2020/07/24 15:47
I loved this game until I got stuck on a level and I can’t beat it. I have tried just about everything and I still can’t pass it. I think that it would help to give daily stars or at least lower the costs of the hints. I can’t even get past level 4 and it’s driving me nuts. I’m starting to think there is no solution. Please fix this as soon as possible.
Solutions inexplicable
by ChitownD on 2020/05/25 21:12
You know it’s going to be bad when you can’t figure out the tutorial puzzle. This is the fifth Haiku games escape app that I’ve played and the only one that doesn’t get five stars. Although the storyline is interesting and compelling, the puzzles are impossible. It’s not that they are “too challenging,” but the solutions are not intuitive or even related to the clues given; they are arbitrary. Even when presented with the solutions, it’s difficult to see the path to the answer. It is far too frustrating to merit any more time than already spent.
It’s honestly pretty good
by Brielle Sinns on 2020/05/24 20:43
I really liked it but it had some hard clues to go through but over all it was one of the best murder mystery games I’ve ever downloaded
Stopped working at the final level
by ;.1 on 2020/05/19 08:16
It’s a good game but I couldn’t finish cuz it got stuck in a level where it wouldn’t let move the flash light. That really sucked. I restarted my phone and everything. Hope they fix it.
Good game but...
by Mumz1k on 2020/05/07 16:47
Some of the puzzles are not solvable without hints, for example, Mountain trail map is badly drawn. A bit disappointing.
Love Adventure Escape Games
by Ailin8 on 2020/04/16 20:20
I love these games! The story lines are interesting, the puzzles range from easy to challenging. I love that they’re not riddled with ads, and that it’s still possible to play without spending money. The design is really nice looking, and Detective Grey is a cool character! Haiku Gamed have come a long way from their first mystery puzzle app!
Needs fixes
by J99H3865 on 2020/04/16 00:32
Inability to save progress and arbitrary solutions (more than one, but you to have their solution) makes this a very frustrating experience - not what I’m looking for when playing a game. Other Haiku games are far better.
Start over again and again
by Sand hole on 2020/03/23 00:30
Every time I left the game I would have to redo that section to many times. No where to save the game. Deleted it!!!
Don’t Waste Your Time
by fullerart on 2020/03/20 12:08
Haiku games give you a few easy puzzles, but adds a real poser that can’t be solved unless you buy a clue. Such a waste of time.
Yeet
by yeet boi👍🏻12 on 2020/03/14 23:02
This game made me Yeet myself
No WiFi Game
by Widderune on 2020/03/14 01:48
This game plays like a escape game, but it has a plot with cutscenes (hence, Adventure Escape). Many of the puzzles can be solved with ease, but the developers leave enough difficult puzzles for you to try and figure out (the hard puzzles are usually at the end of a chapter). You can find and collect stars to use as currency for answers, but try not to use them unless it is necessary. The best part (of course) is you do not need any WiFi to play this game. Haiku Games craft their apps rather well. No disappointments so far.

Don’t like not saving progress, nor the bazaar crazy codes, which make no sense. They are off the wall. I do like the puzzles.

by Betsy and Ari on 2019/12/12 05:57
Fun.
Good game
by degal48 on 2019/11/24 19:43
Overall a good game. Biggest problem is that it does not save your progress. At least when you have saved a major puzzle, when you come back, it lets you skip for free. If you solve a combination lock, write it down for when you come back to the game
WELL WORTH A PLAY!
by SmartyMartyMartelli on 2019/11/14 04:45
I rarely give games a “5-star” rating, but this game is so well thought-out, so expansive, and so dang fun—and IT’S FREE—that I had to write this review. If you enjoy point-and-click puzzle-adventure games, this is a must-play. Well done, Haiku!
Unhappy
by sadlypissed on 2019/10/29 05:11
The puzzles in this game made absolutely no sense.
Long and entertaining
by Bunny Blackrose on 2019/09/30 06:04
This gave me many days of entertainment. The story in this adventure escape game was much more in depth than I expected. The only complaint I would have is that it is sometimes very unclear what clue is for what puzzle, and when getting hints it almost always isn’t presenting me with information related to what I am working on or is a hint to something I have already done. I would however still highly recommend this game.
Good Game!
by NickNomdePlume on 2019/09/20 08:42
Jay did it. Turns out he wasn’t really dead, just hiding.
No thanks...
by Hollywould3 on 2019/09/01 17:52
I had just played Haunted Hunt and was so thrilled and impressed that I looked for another Haiku game. Murder Inn was such a let down. Waaay too many ambiguous clues and puzzles that were boring and redundant, not to mention frustrating. I think they tried way too hard to be clever at every single turn so gameplay was just tedious. Also, some puzzles have more than one correct solution (ie the dinner menu, and the checker game) so even if you are correct, you cannot move on until you figure out the “accepted” answer. I’m not in to having to re-solve things after spending a lot of time getting to the solution. This is a hard pass... it wasn’t even remotely fun because their clues and puzzles are so “out there”. I’m not saying the game should be easy but this game is chaotic and unrewarding.
Usually love these games
by swest133 on 2019/09/01 14:17
I am a big fan of these games, Murder Inn is my fourth one. But this game is ridiculously hard. There just aren’t enough hints and I’m not willing to pay for more. Ive been trying to play this off and on for months now because I get so frustrated I just set it aside.
Sharper mind while having fun!
by AlleneCarter on 2019/08/25 05:36
AE mysteries keep my brain learning while I get sucked into all these stories. I love it! I feel smarter since I started!
Hi
by Jonnytech on 2019/08/24 12:52
I think you should add more hints to your game
PLEASE FIX
by rissa430 on 2019/08/17 03:19
I absolutely LOVE this game. I can honestly say I’m obsessed.. I appreciate everything about this game EXCEPT the fact that it does not save your progress. That’s literally the only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars. It honestly makes me not want to play it because I’m having to redo everything I just did. And it’s even more frustrating when I’m spending money on stars and my progress is not being saved. This game is time consuming and nobody has the time to solve just in one sit in so why would you not have an option to save your progress. Please please fix this, I absolutely love this game so much and it’s just a huge disappointment that this is an issue.
Entertaining if frustrating
by Patmcguinn on 2019/08/14 02:08
Many of the clues and games made no sense without help but this game still holds your interest til the end.
Unsaved progress....
by S-capr on 2019/08/03 13:32
Like the varied puzzles on the Haiku games. On some, I have worked off & on for hours because the game doesn’t save my progress, which I find frustrating. I had been farther along on a level and used 30 stars to skip one game, only to discover the next time I opened the game to have to restart the whole level yet again, minus the 30 stars AND still had the game to be played that I had previously skipped, before I could move on. I do understand not everybody will like EVERY game, but I do like your varied selection of games. A “restart” button would be helpful on more games.
Love these games
by Dissapointed ;( on 2019/07/09 17:13
I came across theses games playing another. Finally a game that challenges my mind. I’m wondering the last game I played I had 83 stars left which I purchase does it get transferred to another game or do I just lose them cuz that would not be good.
Terrible Game
by TheRealMPS on 2019/07/04 18:23
This is the WORST game. I spent money purchasing stars to get through certain points in the game, but the game starts at the beginning of a room if you go out and come back in. So, the money was completely wasted.
I Hate This Game
by G-Ghost on 2019/07/03 15:17
I've played many of Haiku mystery games and this is by far the worst. This game is all over the place. Don't waste your time on this one, play another one instead.
Haiku Games = <3
by SweetSunshine_Girl on 2019/04/27 03:01
I love Haiku Games. Please keep the games coming. I really love it, and it never gets old. It is so unique from other escape games. I know I already said this, but please keep the games coming.
Not logical
by SunniSelfMade on 2019/04/09 23:34
This was a very fun adventure game BUT the hints and puzzles were way too hard at some points and did not give specific guidance in other aspects. I was super bored and interested in the storyline so I continued but DEFINITELY spent WAY too much money on skipping or hints to completely enjoy the game.
Good but not great.
by stuntbush on 2019/03/28 22:42
This is my least favorite of all the Haiku games. First of all some of the puzzles were a little too illogical. Secondly I encountered the most frustrating bug on the monitor where you have to click the dials. It kept going in a time loop over and over. It almost made me just delete the darn game. The story was good and it’s free but the hint system was not as generous as the others. It’s still a good way to pass some time but I would recommend playing some of the other games first.
A tough one, but I still love t
by duidance on 2019/03/18 06:11
I always want the figure out a Haiku game. Sometimes I get so frustrated with one (like this one), I&#39;ll delete and it. After several months, I&#39;ll download it and try again. Other Haiku games, I manage to complete without deleting along the way. These are great games for critical thinking. I wouldn&#39;t want the developers to change a thing... except for gameplay that requires physical functions such as finger tracking or device turning. Now that drives me crazy. I&#39;d rather just use my brain ;)
Insanely Good Games
by Pixieechick on 2019/03/17 22:17
These games are so original, well thought out and carefully articulated. Not only is the storyline intriguing but the gameplay is marvelous and you never want them to end. And somehow it seems like they don’t. When I think they are getting close, there is still so much more story to go and it’s fun from beginning to end. Totally satisfying. Many props to all who work on the Haiku games. You make um, I’ll keep playing them. Thank you for your original ideas, and for being so invested in what you do. It shows.
Great
by Nowanta on 2019/02/20 21:07

Great mystery
by Heartbeat Semicolon on 2019/02/17 04:40
Full of intrigue and new puzzles. Very fun and engaging. Will keep coming back for more games from this developer.
Challenging puzzles, great graphics
by Catnipsy on 2019/01/29 18:33
The graphics in Haiku’s games are so vivid and attractive, even on a smaller iPhone. The puzzles are very tricky. Some I can figure myself but others I need help on. Rather dark plot on this one.
The best.
by phpijajs2019 on 2019/01/26 16:47
This is the best mystery/solve/escape game I have played.
Too hard
by pwruintgnkbd on 2019/01/17 04:15
Loved the first two games I played with the maker. I played asylum and the cult one and absolutely loved them but unfortunately this one is almost impossible to figure out. I’m not sure why this one is so much more difficult but really needs some improvement there is absolutely no indication of what to. Almost like walking around in the dark to try and remotely figure out what they want. I was upset to have and give up on this was but was not worth spending more money to buy more hints after countless purchases and attempts. Like I said the first two were great, not easy to figure out but also not impossible which was nice.
One of the best escape games!
by KatieEscape on 2018/12/27 21:46
I’ve played more escape games than I care to admit and this is the best company that makes them! Challenging but not impossible. Good story lines. Fun adventures. Highly recommend.
Doesn’t save progress
by Bakoboyz on 2018/12/21 06:30
Another great haiku game that doesn’t save. There was one particularly lengthy chapter that you couldn’t get through quickly and I’m just not going to do it again once I had to leave. I don’t have thirty minutes to spare or even ten. Let me save the chapter progress!!!! Had to delete. It’s not worth re doing.
Super fun
by Tasz mom on 2018/12/14 08:56
I was looking for a Christmas game to play when I ran across the Christmas Killer game by Haiku. I played it and I was hooked! Since then I have gotten all 15 Haiku escape games and only have 3 left to play. I can’t wait for the developers to make some new games because I’m sure I’ll be done with these soon. Great job! Your escape games are super fun.
3 stars
by Extreme*2 on 2018/12/07 02:37
This is a great game. Very nicely laid out plot, interesting characters, and wonderful graphics. I had zero glitches. My main issue is that so many of the puzzles were just impossible. Many times you have absolutely no idea what you need to do. I had to use a walkthrough probably more for this game than any other, on any platform. I didn&#39;t have so much trouble with some of Haiku&#39;s other games. It&#39;s a solid game. But super difficult.
These games are so awesome
by sylvst on 2018/12/03 05:51
Seriously. Do not pass go, do not collect. $200. Download these games now. They have tons of logic puzzles that will be convoluted enough that they’ll make you think, without being over the top. Honestly I just love these games
Very good, buuut
by 1899 code on 2018/11/28 09:20
I like this game. It is very entertaining. I got stuck and didn’t have enough stars or money to pay for stars. I wish hints were cheaper. I also say “ you have a right to have an opinion and if you think it is anti gun then you have a right to say it.” I think that review writer that had 5 stars on this game is a petty person who has nothing to do but right dumb reviews and only to be a brown noser. Don’t charge money for your games. Enough people go broke on paying for stars.
Nope
by EbertofGames on 2018/11/18 14:42
I’m a Haiku fan, so I was let down by this game. The plot is interesting, but the puzzles are not logical. Even after watching some tutorials, many of the puzzles still leave me scratching my head. Worst of all are the glitches. There are golden hint stars that are impossible to pick up. Also, the game does NOT save your place. So if you read a text and try to go back to your game, you have to start from the top of the chapter. Major let down.
Ugg
by 333Val333 on 2018/10/31 02:27
I wanted to love this game —really I did! —even though some of the clues are totally random &amp; unconnected —but i just couldn&#39;t because it wouldn’t save my games and I just couldn’t solve Chapter 3’s Sudoku puzzle one more time. Argh!!! Maybe it is an iPad glitch, but whatever it is...it needs fixin’ &amp; fast! Disappointed that I’ll never find out who killed Emily!
Not Saving
by cyndiban on 2018/10/23 12:06
Some of my chapters would save and some did not. There is no way for me to manually save them. The puzzles take time and it is frustrating to do them over. I’m done with Haiku games.
As a Haiku Games fan, this was bad
by Pkgdrhn on 2018/10/19 13:29
This game made me take a break from games completely...I came to download their most recent games, and wanted to take the opportunity to tell others to not waste your time.
Murder Inn
by new watchdog on 2018/10/13 16:45
The puzzles are ridiculous, you cannot figure most of them out without getting help. No stars.
Best Detective Kate Mystery Yet!
by ElizaCalvin on 2018/09/18 19:15
I stumbled across Haiku games about a month ago and I have never been more impressed with a mystery game—and it’s even free! So far, I have played Framed, Xmas Killer, Murder Manor, Starstruck, and Escape Cult and I would probably rank them in that order from best to “worst”, worst being relative, because I truly enjoyed them all! But this one take the cake! Murder Inn is my new favorite—the story line was excellent and my jaw dropped more than once when new information was revealed. As always with Haiku games, the graphics and storytelling are top-notch and I love that the focus is more on solving puzzles than just hidden objects. Get this game—you’ll love it!
Needs work

Don’t play unless you want to be lectured
by Ploegy Red raider on 2018/09/06 05:09
Thought I was playing a good puzzle game, until I was starting to be lectured over and over again on “how dangerous guns are”, and why no one should have them, and the people that do are absolutely terrible. Also you’ll be lectured on animal cruelty and for some reason the creator even attacked people that play contact sports because of head injuries they may get during them, seriously. Extremely disappointed with this!!!
Buggy
by roofoofighter on 2018/08/29 16:12
I love the other Haiku games but this one is just buggy. Many puzzles are impossible to pass, even with the right solution. (I.e. the checkers puzzle, or the sudoku figurines) The only way to advance past them is to pay stars, and those cost real money. What fun is that?
Actually Fun
by Maria Pad on 2018/08/18 04:15
Super fun and exciting, there are different puzzles but nothing you haven’t scene before either. Constantly had me thinking.
HORRIBLE
by Shelly49 on 2018/08/15 01:30
I almost couldn’t even get in the front door to even start! This game has the most HORRIBLE clues that make NO SENSE. I found myself having to look up almost everything on a walkthrough, so I just quit around the 3rd chapter because there’s ZERO fun in that. The whole point is to figure it out yourself which was impossible with the stupid clues given.
Worst game they have made!
by vter802 on 2018/07/29 02:16
Half of the answers to the clues do not make sense compared to the other mystery games that they have created.
Love it
by jackieb44 on 2018/07/10 04:37
Okay so I love this game it’s one of my favorite!!!!
Loved it until Scene 2
by Echilders on 2018/07/10 01:17
This is my third Haiku game I have downloaded and enjoyed up to a certain point. I’ve loved the first two games (Asylum and the Mansion) and I was able to complete the first two games. However, I couldn’t get past the second scene in this game and have tried for days but couldn’t get past the extremely limited clues in it. I think this game would benefit in more bonuses like additional daily stars to help people like me get through tough puzzles or provide at least a little bit more guidance. I love the Haiku games and am actually downloading another one right now. I’ve had to delete this one because I just got fed up with the really cryptic clues.
❤️ Haiku Games!
by Shan Carter on 2018/06/22 17:50
I have played a few Haiku Games already and love them all. This one was pretty extensive and well done. There were a few clues I missed, but I was able to find the codes with brute force anyway. Lots of plot twists in this game.
I usually don't do this but....
by Notey1243 on 2018/06/21 20:30
Every Haiku game I&#39;ve played has been beyond stellar. Puzzles aren&#39;t too easy/challenging and the graphics are great in comparison to other free Escape games.
Checkers?
by DanieJo12356 on 2018/06/03 01:44
With all the complaints you would think you’d fix the checkers game! Can’t get past it even after copying the walkthrough.
Mysterys
by Emma Oceanshade on 2018/06/02 15:54
I love all the murder mysterys they challenge me.
To hard to finish
by mrsThomas53 on 2018/05/22 23:02
I gave one star because after spending money for hints I am still not able to get out of the room with the camera after the power went out . How do I get back to trying to solve this murder
So much fun!
by alysiaamariee on 2018/05/19 04:43
I’ve been playing Haiku Games for about 3 years already and I could never get enough! This game is so much fun as well as all the other haiku games! It’s so suspenseful m! Like a book I can’t put down! I highly recommend 🤗
Haiku does it again!
by jennifer626 on 2018/05/17 03:29
After a few stumbles over the holidays where Haiku released games too quickly, they are back and better than ever with Murder Inn. No bugs, smooth interface, clearly passed QA with flying colors. Moreover, they have really upped the ante with new sophisticated, challenging puzzles, and the storyline remains engaging and well thought out. Haiku has some of the best free games for iOS, and this one can safely be added to that list.
Mixed feelings
by El987654321 on 2018/05/10 19:31
I liked this game but it had a lot of glitches. It would put my clues over in the right hand column in the wrong place. So then I would not be able to click on them. Also if I finished a section of the game (room) and “quit game” it would make me completely do the level all over again. Also in the beginning of the game it wouldn’t let me start the game like it should. It was stuck on the to Tutorial for way to long.
Another greaT game
by Rad333 on 2018/05/05 18:23
I have downloaded and played all the haiku games adventure escape. They are the perfect balance of challenge and pace. The hint system is just right to keep things moving if you get really stuck but puzzles aren’t too hard or too easy. Some of them take a while, though. And I am very impressed with the way the developers come up with so many different puzzle ideas in spite of all the games they have out. Good job! Highly recommend for people who like these kind of puzzle escape adventure games.
Great games!
by Ram-50 on 2018/05/04 20:57
Fun and challenging games. Sure, some of the puzzles have logic that escapes me, but most are incredibly creative. Great graphics, worth your time. I only wish there was some way to save your progress during a level. If you leave part way through to do something else, you may have to replay the entire level. But kudos to the creators.
Amazing
by tbhobsessed on 2018/05/02 22:41
I loved this game a lot; it was really thought out and it just had me wanting more after every unlocked clue or secret door. I think the mystery was pretty good as well, so that while you’re solving clues you’re also guessing who the murderer was. All in all, I really enjoyed this and I hope Haiku Games makes more Murder Manors.
Murder Inn
by Noitisnottaken on 2018/04/30 16:05
The checkerboard game directions are not possible. Even copying the walk through, where it said the solution didn’t follow the rules, I could not get the board to open. Without that jokey, I cannot continue. Also, the ski run clue made no sense to me even with the walkthrough hints, I just took those numbers from the “cheat.”
Haiku Games are Great... This One No Exception..!
by PippaChicka on 2018/04/29 16:16
Awesome games. Graphics and storyline can&#39;t be beat. The puzzles are challenging, clever, but not impossible. There seems to be a glitch on the mouse maze, though, so I rated it a 4. Another winner from Haiku.
Frustrated 😤
by divademi23 on 2018/04/28 13:25
I really like the game but I’m stuck! When I got to the checkerboard, I did as the directions say so and it still won’t let me pass. I assumed I must be doing something wrong so I looked up at the walkthrough and followed how they did it and still nothing! Is there something I or the developer can do something about it? I really wanna continue the game. Do something about it!
Best of show
by geoffkrass on 2018/04/11 06:56
Absolutely the best games out there. Highly addicted, need more!!!!
Some nice touches but many arbitrary "clues"
by tr1999 on 2018/03/23 03:35
I really like Haiku games and many of them are high quality and have well thought out stories and clues. This one however does not live up to the quality of the others. Many of the clues seem arbitrary, and some are downright bad. Clues should be logical. “Jay”, “Let’s play”, the bowl of fruit, the chair lift, those are arbitrary connections that are made up from convenience. Because the connections are arbitrary you often miss clues, I still cannot see a 5 in one of the clues for example because it is so distorted and there were numbers in another panel. I certainly hope Haiku can keep up the quality of Murder Manor and especially Asylum.
Excellent game
by FashionistaLA07 on 2018/03/21 19:35
Another fantastic game from Haiku games, which immerses the player in a snowy winter mystery, filled with suspense and intrigue at every turn. All that is needed is a cup of hot chocolate to go along with it. Just as intriguing is how this excellent game is actually getting low-star reviews from some nutcases claiming this game is putting out “anti-gun propaganda” or was “impossible”. Maybe if you have the IQ of a doorknob. This game has excellent artwork, a great immersive story, and just challenging enough puzzles. I would like to see what these armchair critics with impossible standards think is a good game, because I haven’t found anything better than these, and I’m an avid game player. Haiku Games, I think it’s time you start charging for your games, so you can be more selective as to who gets the privilege of playing and rating these games, and you get a more genuine audience who actually is smart enough to spot a good game when they see one.

First of all, puzzles towards the beginning were ridiculous...SECOND...what&#39;s with the anti-gun propaganda?!? Why can&#39;t games just be games?! Sick of the liberal propaganda that infiltrates everything, even a stupid game! Way to ruin everything, snowflakes...
Interesting and unique
by Rtiger2 on 2018/03/10 03:14
I love every escape/adventure game from this developer. The story line keeps the game changing and interesting, and the puzzles are unique- not the same old puzzles or games that you find in every other escape game. I was tired of escaping from “this room”, then “that room”, when really just the scenery changed. Every game from this developer is fresh, interesting and fun. PLEASE keep making more!
Puzzles too difficult/ clues worthless
by EleniSS on 2018/03/04 19:31
I’ve played the other games by this developer and they were fun. A good mix of challenging puzzles with easier ones. This game was by far the worse. I needed clues which were worthless; wasting stars. I found the hints were for puzzles I’d already done!! How stupid is that. I resorted to the walkthroughs which even when puzzles were explained didn’t make sense. Not worth your time.
Great balance of difficulty and do-ability.
by eburgpirates on 2018/02/17 18:20
Just hard enough to be fun, but not so hard you gotta be a super genius. The levels aren’t too long. I needed help a couple times, but I like that you can skip a task with your star things if you have enough of them. I’ve downloaded a couple by this developer, and will keep doing so.
Hmm...
by DelleeComeOn on 2018/01/29 06:23
This is what I was thinking way too much in this Adventure Escape game. I&#39;ve really enjoyed all the previous ones, and this one wasn&#39;t bad. It had an interesting story. But a lot of the puzzles were much harder than previous Adventure Escapes. Like, seemingly impossible. The clues were mostly fun to figure out, but they too were sometimes a bit too tricky. I really enjoyed the game when I could figure stuff out on my own, but there were too many times when I couldn&#39;t.
No fun
by no fn on 2018/01/29 05:27
The games r 2 hard and u only get so many stars and if u can’t fix the game then u use ur stars up. I’m on the ski game and I can’t figure it out no matter what? Help please?
Love haiku games
by Just a suggestion...^_^ on 2018/01/26 03:39
I love these games! This one seems a lot more difficult to get through. I didn’t understand the note in the office trash can but I figured the puzzles out; great game!
No thanks
by Sestine on 2018/01/25 01:29
Haiku games keep getting harder because of the bugs and far-fetched logic. This will be my last one. Too bad. They used to be fun.
Checkers still not working
by Dhvfo on 2018/01/21 06:17
Some of the clues are too far out there, but I am still not able to get the checkers to work
Glitch in game
by Courtnnnnnney on 2018/01/18 22:04
I would have given 5 stars...the puzzles are challenging and the graphics are great. But anytime you get a puzzle that requires you to “tap to rotate” the puzzle pieces. It doesn’t rotate. I’m playing on a iPhone but I’m pretty much stuck cause of this glitch.
Liked A Lot not loved
by Slodfjrnkelf on 2018/01/15 00:14
I&#39;m a huge fan of Haiku games, but this one seemed a little far fetched for the logic. Some of the puzzles were glitchy and some of the clues were non-sensical. I still played the whole thing, but I used way more clues than usual and found myself saying &#34;huh&#34; afterwards. However HUGE PROPS for bringing awareness to mental health.
Sad face
by Uhffnji on 2018/01/14 15:37
Fix the glitch
Too Complex!
by Eliebean80 on 2018/01/14 08:39
I love all the Haiku games but this one seemed too complicated. It was very hard to find clues to solving the puzzles or combinations. In some cases there were no clues and left some unanswered questions. They never did get the note that was in the washer. What was is? And what did it say? It&#39;s the first haiku game where I just wanted it to be over. It was more frustrating then entertainment.
LOVE!!
by Fisher257984215780842389 on 2018/01/11 01:57
Love all of the games around detective Kate! Please please keep them coming! I cannot rave enough.

Love it like always
Buggy
by AppUnwrapper on 2018/01/03 02:39
Made it all the way to the last chapter and I quit during the ridiculous footprints mini game. When I opened it again, I couldn’t access anything. Only choice is to delete the game and either forget about it or restart it.
Another great one
by EscapeJunky on 2017/12/30 23:17
The puzzles are challenging and the story is interesting. I really love your games; keep them coming.
Love haiku games
by Kaylahdevon on 2017/12/30 22:47
I love haiku games but I can’t even finish this one it won’t let me . Also every time you had to tap to rotate something you had to tap a million times . Some of the puzzles didn’t even make sense so I had to use the walkthrough a few times . I will still play haiku games though because I love them
Haiku Games, Really?
by ToriTootsieroll on 2017/12/29 01:42
Don’t get me wrong, i still played it the whole way through, but this one had puzzles that were glitchy, were too difficult, and went on for too long. i’m hesitant to even play the other new release because i felt obligated to finish this one whereas the other games, i get so involved that i finish it in a day. just wasn’t fun this time.
Unsaved progress....
by S-capr on 2019/08/03 13:32
Like the varied puzzles on the Haiku games. On some, I have worked off &amp; on for hours because the game doesn’t save my progress, which I find frustrating. I had been farther along on a level and used 30 stars to skip one game, only to discover the next time I opened the game to have to restart the whole level yet again, minus the 30 stars AND still had the game to be played that I had previously skipped, before I could move on. I do understand not everybody will like EVERY game, but I do like your varied selection of games. A “restart” button would be helpful on more games.
Excellent game
by FashionistaLA07 on 2018/03/21 19:35
Another fantastic game from Haiku games, which immerses the player in a snowy winter mystery, filled with suspense and intrigue at every turn. All that is needed is a cup of hot chocolate to go along with it. Just as intriguing is how this excellent game is actually getting low-star reviews from some nutcases claiming this game is putting out “anti-gun propaganda” or was “impossible”. Maybe if you have the IQ of a doorknob. This game has excellent artwork, a great immersive story, and just challenging enough puzzles. I would like to see what these armchair critics with impossible standards think is a good game, because I haven’t found anything better than these, and I’m an avid game player. Haiku Games, I think it’s time you start charging for your games, so you can be more selective as to who gets the privilege of playing and rating these games, and you get a more genuine audience who actually is smart enough to spot a good game when they see one.
Best Detective Kate Mystery Yet!
by ElizaCalvin on 2018/09/18 19:15
I stumbled across Haiku games about a month ago and I have never been more impressed with a mystery game—and it’s even free! So far, I have played Framed, Xmas Killer, Murder Manor, Starstruck, and Escape Cult and I would probably rank them in that order from best to “worst”, worst being relative, because I truly enjoyed them all! But this one take the cake! Murder Inn is my new favorite—the story line was excellent and my jaw dropped more than once when new information was revealed. As always with Haiku games, the graphics and storytelling are top-notch and I love that the focus is more on solving puzzles than just hidden objects. Get this game—you’ll love it!
No thanks...
by Hollywould3 on 2019/09/01 17:52
I had just played Haunted Hunt and was so thrilled and impressed that I looked for another Haiku game. Murder Inn was such a let down. Waaay too many ambiguous clues and puzzles that were boring and redundant, not to mention frustrating. I think they tried way too hard to be clever at every single turn so gameplay was just tedious. Also, some puzzles have more than one correct solution (ie the dinner menu, and the checker game) so even if you are correct, you cannot move on until you figure out the “accepted” answer. I’m not in to having to re-solve things after spending a lot of time getting to the solution. This is a hard pass... it wasn’t even remotely fun because their clues and puzzles are so “out there”. I’m not saying the game should be easy but this game is chaotic and unrewarding.
Loved it until Scene 2
by Echilders on 2018/07/10 01:17
This is my third Haiku game I have downloaded and enjoyed up to a certain point. I’ve loved the first two games (Asylum and the Mansion) and I was able to complete the first two games. However, I couldn’t get past the second scene in this game and have tried for days but couldn’t get past the extremely limited clues in it. I think this game would benefit in more bonuses like additional daily stars to help people like me get through tough puzzles or provide at least a little bit more guidance. I love the Haiku games and am actually downloading another one right now. I’ve had to delete this one because I just got fed up with the really cryptic clues.
Very good, buuut
by 1899 code on 2018/11/28 09:20
I like this game. It is very entertaining. I got stuck and didn’t have enough stars or money to pay for stars. I wish hints were cheaper. I also say “ you have a right to have an opinion and if you think it is anti gun then you have a right to say it.” I think that review writer that had 5 stars on this game is a petty person who has nothing to do but right dumb reviews and only to be a brown noser. Don’t charge money for your games. Enough people go broke on paying for stars.
A tough one, but I still love t
by duidance on 2019/03/18 06:11
I always want the figure out a Haiku game. Sometimes I get so frustrated with one (like this one), I&#39;ll delete and it. After several months, I&#39;ll download it and try again. Other Haiku games, I manage to complete without deleting along the way. These are great games for critical thinking. I wouldn&#39;t want the developers to change a thing... except for gameplay that requires physical functions such as finger tracking or device turning. Now that drives me crazy. I&#39;d rather just use my brain ;)
Insanely Good Games
by Pixieechick on 2019/03/17 22:17
These games are so original, well thought out and carefully articulated. Not only is the storyline intriguing but the gameplay is marvelous and you never want them to end. And somehow it seems like they don’t. When I think they are getting close, there is still so much more story to go and it’s fun from beginning to end. Totally satisfying. Many props to all who work on the Haiku games. You make um, I’ll keep playing them. Thank you for your original ideas, and for being so invested in what you do. It shows.
Another greaT game
by Rad333 on 2018/05/05 18:23
I have downloaded and played all the haiku games adventure escape. They are the perfect balance of challenge and pace. The hint system is just right to keep things moving if you get really stuck but puzzles aren’t too hard or too easy. Some of them take a while, though. And I am very impressed with the way the developers come up with so many different puzzle ideas in spite of all the games they have out. Good job! Highly recommend for people who like these kind of puzzle escape adventure games.
No WiFi Game
by Widderune on 2020/03/14 01:48
This game plays like a escape game, but it has a plot with cutscenes (hence, Adventure Escape). Many of the puzzles can be solved with ease, but the developers leave enough difficult puzzles for you to try and figure out (the hard puzzles are usually at the end of a chapter). You can find and collect stars to use as currency for answers, but try not to use them unless it is necessary. The best part (of course) is you do not need any WiFi to play this game. Haiku Games craft their apps rather well. No disappointments so far.
PLEASE FIX
by rissa430 on 2019/08/17 03:19
I absolutely LOVE this game. I can honestly say I’m obsessed.. I appreciate everything about this game EXCEPT the fact that it does not save your progress. That’s literally the only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars. It honestly makes me not want to play it because I’m having to redo everything I just did. And it’s even more frustrating when I’m spending money on stars and my progress is not being saved. This game is time consuming and nobody has the time to solve just in one sit in so why would you not have an option to save your progress. Please please fix this, I absolutely love this game so much and it’s just a huge disappointment that this is an issue.
Some nice touches but many arbitrary "clues"
by tr1999 on 2018/03/23 03:35
I really like Haiku games and many of them are high quality and have well thought out stories and clues. This one however does not live up to the quality of the others. Many of the clues seem arbitrary, and some are downright bad. Clues should be logical. “Jay”, “Let’s play”, the bowl of fruit, the chair lift, those are arbitrary connections that are made up from convenience. Because the connections are arbitrary you often miss clues, I still cannot see a 5 in one of the clues for example because it is so distorted and there were numbers in another panel. I certainly hope Haiku can keep up the quality of Murder Manor and especially Asylum.
Too hard
by pwruintgnkbd on 2019/01/17 04:15
Loved the first two games I played with the maker. I played asylum and the cult one and absolutely loved them but unfortunately this one is almost impossible to figure out. I’m not sure why this one is so much more difficult but really needs some improvement there is absolutely no indication of what to. Almost like walking around in the dark to try and remotely figure out what they want. I was upset to have and give up on this was but was not worth spending more money to buy more hints after countless purchases and attempts. Like I said the first two were great, not easy to figure out but also not impossible which was nice.
Long and entertaining
by Bunny Blackrose on 2019/09/30 06:04
This gave me many days of entertainment. The story in this adventure escape game was much more in depth than I expected. The only complaint I would have is that it is sometimes very unclear what clue is for what puzzle, and when getting hints it almost always isn’t presenting me with information related to what I am working on or is a hint to something I have already done. I would however still highly recommend this game.
Good game
by degal48 on 2019/11/24 19:43
Overall a good game. Biggest problem is that it does not save your progress. At least when you have saved a major puzzle, when you come back, it lets you skip for free. If you solve a combination lock, write it down for when you come back to the game
Haiku does it again!
by jennifer626 on 2018/05/17 03:29
After a few stumbles over the holidays where Haiku released games too quickly, they are back and better than ever with Murder Inn. No bugs, smooth interface, clearly passed QA with flying colors. Moreover, they have really upped the ante with new sophisticated, challenging puzzles, and the storyline remains engaging and well thought out. Haiku has some of the best free games for iOS, and this one can safely be added to that list.
Interesting and unique

Solutions inexplicable
by ChitownD on 2020/05/25 21:12
You know it’s going to be bad when you can’t figure out the tutorial puzzle. This is the fifth Haiku games escape app that I’ve played and the only one that doesn’t get five stars. Although the storyline is interesting and compelling, the puzzles are impossible. It’s not that they are “too challenging,” but the solutions are not intuitive or even related to the clues given; they are arbitrary. Even when presented with the solutions, it’s difficult to see the path to the answer. It is far too frustrating to merit any more time than already spent.
Good but not great.
by stuntbush on 2019/03/28 22:42
This is my least favorite of all the Haiku games. First of all some of the puzzles were a little too illogical. Secondly I encountered the most frustrating bug on the monitor where you have to click the dials. It kept going in a time loop over and over. It almost made me just delete the darn game. The story was good and it’s free but the hint system was not as generous as the others. It’s still a good way to pass some time but I would recommend playing some of the other games first.
Hmm...

Great games!
by Ram-50 on 2018/05/04 20:57
Fun and challenging games. Sure, some of the puzzles have logic that escapes me, but most are incredibly creative. Great graphics, worth your time. I only wish there was some way to save your progress during a level. If you leave part way through to do something else, you may have to replay the entire level. But kudos to the creators.
Great balance of difficulty and do-ability.
by eburgpirates on 2018/02/17 18:20
Just hard enough to be fun, but not so hard you gotta be a super genius. The levels aren’t too long. I needed help a couple times, but I like that you can skip a task with your star things if you have enough of them. I’ve downloaded a couple by this developer, and will keep doing so.
3 stars
by Extreme*2 on 2018/12/07 02:37
This is a great game. Very nicely laid out plot, interesting characters, and wonderful graphics. I had zero glitches. My main issue is that so many of the puzzles were just impossible. Many times you have absolutely no idea what you need to do. I had to use a walkthrough probably more for this game than any other, on any platform. I didn&#39;t have so much trouble with some of Haiku&#39;s other games. It&#39;s a solid game. But super difficult.
Super fun
by Tasz mom on 2018/12/14 08:56
I was looking for a Christmas game to play when I ran across the Christmas Killer game by Haiku. I played it and I was hooked! Since then I have gotten all 15 Haiku escape games and only have 3 left to play. I can’t wait for the developers to make some new games because I’m sure I’ll be done with these soon. Great job! Your escape games are super fun.
Love Adventure Escape Games
by Ailin8 on 2020/04/16 20:20
I love these games! The story lines are interesting, the puzzles range from easy to challenging. I love that they’re not riddled with ads, and that it’s still possible to play without spending money. The design is really nice looking, and Detective Grey is a cool character! Haiku Gamed have come a long way from their first mystery puzzle app!
Amazing
by tbhobsessed on 2018/05/02 22:41
I loved this game a lot; it was really thought out and it just had me wanting more after every unlocked clue or secret door. I think the mystery was pretty good as well, so that while you’re solving clues you’re also guessing who the murderer was. All in all, I really enjoyed this and I hope Haiku Games makes more Murder Manors.
Mixed feelings
by El987654321 on 2018/05/10 19:31
I liked this game but it had a lot of glitches. It would put my clues over in the right hand column in the wrong place. So then I would not be able to click on them. Also if I finished a section of the game (room) and “quit game” it would make me completely do the level all over again. Also in the beginning of the game it wouldn’t let me start the game like it should. It was stuck on the to Tutorial for way to long.
Frustrated 😤
by divademi23 on 2018/04/28 13:25
I really like the game but I’m stuck! When I got to the checkerboard, I did as the directions say so and it still won’t let me pass. I assumed I must be doing something wrong so I looked up at the walkthrough and followed how they did it and still nothing! Is there something I or the developer can do something about it? I really wanna continue the game. Do something about it!
This game could use some work...
by Brynsdad on 2020/07/24 15:47
I loved this game until I got stuck on a level and I can’t beat it. I have tried just about everything and I still can’t pass it. I think that it would help to give daily stars or at least lower the costs of the hints. I can’t even get past level 4 and it’s driving me nuts. I’m starting to think there is no solution. Please fix this as soon as possible.
Liked A Lot not loved
by Slodfjrnkelf on 2018/01/15 00:14
I&#39;m a huge fan of Haiku games, but this one seemed a little far fetched for the logic. Some of the puzzles were glitchy and some of the clues were non-sensical.

Love these games
by Dissapointed ;( on 2019/07/09 17:13
I came across theses games playing another. Finally a game that challenges my mind. I’m wondering the last game I played I had 83 stars left which I purchase does it get transferred to another game or do I just lose them cuz that would not be good.
These games are so awesome
by sylvst on 2018/12/03 05:51
Seriously. Do not pass go, do not collect. $200. Download these games now. They have tons of logic puzzles that will be convoluted enough that they’ll make you think, without being over the top. Honestly I just love these games
Don’t play unless you want to be lectured
by Ploegy Red raider on 2018/09/06 05:09
Thought I was playing a good puzzle game, until I was starting to be lectured over and over again on “how dangerous guns are”, and why no one should have them, and the people that do are absolutely terrible. Also you’ll be lectured on animal cruelty and for some reason the creator even attacked people that play contact sports because of head injuries they may get during them, seriously. Extremely disappointed with this!!!
Glitch in game
by Courtnnnnnney on 2018/01/18 22:04
I would have given 5 stars...the puzzles are challenging and the graphics are great. But anytime you get a puzzle that requires you to “tap to rotate” the puzzle pieces. It doesn’t rotate. I’m playing on a iPhone but I’m pretty much stuck cause of this glitch.
Doesn’t save progress
by Bakoboyz on 2018/12/21 06:30
Another great haiku game that doesn’t save. There was one particularly lengthy chapter that you couldn’t get through quickly and I’m just not going to do it again once I had to leave. I don’t have thirty minutes to spare or even ten. Let me save the chapter progress!!!! Had to delete. It’s not worth re doing.
Nope
by EbertofGames on 2018/11/18 14:42
I’m a Haiku fan, so I was let down by this game. The plot is interesting, but the puzzles are not logical. Even after watching some tutorials, many of the puzzles still leave me scratching my head. Worst of all are the glitches. There are golden hint stars that are impossible to pick up. Also, the game does NOT save your place. So if you read a text and try to go back to your game, you have to start from the top of the chapter. Major let down.
Ugg
by 333Val333 on 2018/10/31 02:27
I wanted to love this game —really I did! —even though some of the clues are totally random &amp; unconnected —but i just couldn&#39;t because it wouldn’t save my games and I just couldn’t solve Chapter 3’s Sudoku puzzle one more time. Argh!!! Maybe it is an iPad glitch, but whatever it is...it needs fixin’ &amp; fast! Disappointed that I’ll never find out who killed Emily!
So much fun!
by alysiaamariee on 2018/05/19 04:43
I’ve been playing Haiku Games for about 3 years already and I could never get enough! This game is so much fun as well as all the other haiku games! It’s so suspenseful m! Like a book I can’t put down! I highly recommend 🤗
❤️ Haiku Games!
by Shan Carter on 2018/06/22 17:50
I have played a few Haiku Games already and love them all. This one was pretty extensive and well done. There were a few clues I missed, but I was able to find the codes with brute force anyway. Lots of plot twists in this game.
WELL WORTH A PLAY!
by SmartyMartyMartelli on 2019/11/14 04:45
I rarely give games a “5-star” rating, but this game is so well thought-out, so expansive, and so dang fun—and IT’S FREE—that I had to write this review. If you enjoy point-and-click puzzle-adventure games, this is a must-play. Well done, Haiku!
Puzzles too difficult/ clues worthless
by EleniSS on 2018/03/04 19:31
I’ve played the other games by this developer and they were fun. A good mix of challenging puzzles with easier ones. This game was by far the worse. I needed clues which were worthless; wasting stars. I found the hints were for puzzles I’d already done!! How stupid is that. I resorted to the walkthroughs which even when puzzles were explained didn’t make sense. Not worth your time.

Haiku Games = <3
by SweetSunshine_Girl on 2019/04/27 03:01
I love Haiku Games. Please keep the games coming. I really love it, and it never gets old. It is so unique from other escape games. I know I already said this, but please keep the games coming.
Usually love these games
by swest133 on 2019/09/01 14:17
I am a big fan of these games, Murder Inn is my fourth one. But this game is ridiculously hard. There just aren’t enough hints and I’m not willing to pay for more. Ive been trying to play this off and on for months now because I get so frustrated I just set it aside.
Love haiku games
by Just a suggestion...^_^ on 2018/01/26 03:39
I love these games! This one seems a lot more difficult to get through. I didn’t understand the note in the office trash can but I figured the puzzles out; great game!
One of the best escape games!
by KatieEscape on 2018/12/27 21:46
I’ve played more escape games than I care to admit and this is the best company that makes them! Challenging but not impossible. Good story lines. Fun adventures. Highly recommend.
I usually don't do this but....
by Notey1243 on 2018/06/21 20:30
Every Haiku game I&#39;ve played has been beyond stellar. Puzzles aren&#39;t too easy/challenging and the graphics are great in comparison to other free Escape games.
Murder Inn
by Noitisnottaken on 2018/04/30 16:05
The checkerboard game directions are not possible. Even copying the walk through, where it said the solution didn’t follow the rules, I could not get the board to open. Without that jokey, I cannot continue. Also, the ski run clue made no sense to me even with the walkthrough hints, I just took those numbers from the “cheat.”
Stopped working at the final level
by ;.1 on 2020/05/19 08:16
It’s a good game but I couldn’t finish cuz it got stuck in a level where it wouldn’t let move the flash light. That really sucked. I restarted my phone and everything. Hope they fix it.

Does not save progress!
by NickNeiim on 2020/09/24 18:51
So each chapter needs to be completed in one sitting or restarted every time. In sore need of a fix.
Great game
by KellyW9602 on 2020/08/30 01:10
I love these types of games. The logic puzzles kept me engaged. I did have to cheat a bit....some were really hard.
This game could use some work...
by Brynsdad on 2020/07/24 15:47
I loved this game until I got stuck on a level and I can’t beat it. I have tried just about everything and I still can’t pass it. I think that it would help to give daily stars or at least lower the costs of the hints. I can’t even get past level 4 and it’s driving me nuts. I’m starting to think there is no solution. Please fix this as soon as possible.
Solutions inexplicable
by ChitownD on 2020/05/25 21:12
You know it’s going to be bad when you can’t figure out the tutorial puzzle. This is the fifth Haiku games escape app that I’ve played and the only one that doesn’t get five stars. Although the storyline is interesting and compelling, the puzzles are impossible. It’s not that they are “too challenging,” but the solutions are not intuitive or even related to the clues given; they are arbitrary. Even when presented with the solutions, it’s difficult to see the path to the answer. It is far too frustrating to merit any more time than already spent.
It’s honestly pretty good
by Brielle Sinns on 2020/05/24 20:43
I really liked it but it had some hard clues to go through but over all it was one of the best murder mystery games I’ve ever downloaded
Stopped working at the final level
by ;.1 on 2020/05/19 08:16
It’s a good game but I couldn’t finish cuz it got stuck in a level where it wouldn’t let move the flash light. That really sucked. I restarted my phone and everything. Hope they fix it.
Good game but...
by Mumz1k on 2020/05/07 16:47
Some of the puzzles are not solvable without hints, for example, Mountain trail map is badly drawn. A bit disappointing.
Love Adventure Escape Games
by Ailin8 on 2020/04/16 20:20
I love these games! The story lines are interesting, the puzzles range from easy to challenging. I love that they’re not riddled with ads, and that it’s still possible to play without spending money. The design is really nice looking, and Detective Grey is a cool character! Haiku Gamed have come a long way from their first mystery puzzle app!
Needs fixes
by J99H3865 on 2020/04/16 00:32
Inability to save progress and arbitrary solutions (more than one, but you to have their solution) makes this a very frustrating experience - not what I’m looking for when playing a game. Other Haiku games are far better.
Start over again and again
by Sand hole on 2020/03/23 00:30
Every time I left the game I would have to redo that section to many times. No where to save the game. Deleted it!!!
Don’t Waste Your Time
by fullerart on 2020/03/20 12:08
Haiku games give you a few easy puzzles, but adds a real poser that can’t be solved unless you buy a clue. Such a waste of time.
Yeet
by yeet boi👍🏻12 on 2020/03/14 23:02
This game made me Yeet myself
No WiFi Game
by Widderune on 2020/03/14 01:48
This game plays like a escape game, but it has a plot with cutscenes (hence, Adventure Escape). Many of the puzzles can be solved with ease, but the developers leave enough difficult puzzles for you to try and figure out (the hard puzzles are usually at the end of a chapter). You can find and collect stars to use as currency for answers, but try not to use them unless it is necessary. The best part (of course) is you do not need any WiFi to play this game. Haiku Games craft their apps rather well. No disappointments so far.
Happy
by Mila Audet on 2020/01/02 03:30
Why is everyone so happy? Someone just died!
Yes and No
by choice game on 2019/12/13 07:33
Don’t like not saving progress, nor the bazaar crazy codes, which make no sense. They are off the wall. I do like the puzzles.
Love
by Betsy and Ari on 2019/12/12 05:57
Fun.
Good game
by degal48 on 2019/11/24 19:43
Overall a good game. Biggest problem is that it does not save your progress. At least when you have saved a major puzzle, when you come back, it lets you skip for free. If you solve a combination lock, write it down for when you come back to the game
WELL WORTH A PLAY!
by SmartyMartyMartelli on 2019/11/14 04:45
I rarely give games a “5-star” rating, but this game is so well thought-out, so expansive, and so dang fun—and IT’S FREE—that I had to write this review. If you enjoy point-and-click puzzle-adventure games, this is a must-play. Well done, Haiku!
Unhappy
by sadlypissed on 2019/10/29 05:11
The puzzles in this game made absolutely no sense.
Long and entertaining
by Bunny Blackrose on 2019/09/30 06:04
This gave me many days of entertainment. The story in this adventure escape game was much more in depth than I expected. The only complaint I would have is that it is sometimes very unclear what clue is for what puzzle, and when getting hints it almost always isn’t presenting me with information related to what I am working on or is a hint to something I have already done. I would however still highly recommend this game.
Good Game!
by NickNomdePlume on 2019/09/20 08:42
Jay did it. Turns out he wasn’t really dead, just hiding.
No thanks...
by Hollywould3 on 2019/09/01 17:52
I had just played Haunted Hunt and was so thrilled and impressed that I looked for another Haiku game. Murder Inn was such a let down. Waaay too many ambiguous clues and puzzles that were boring and redundant, not to mention frustrating. I think they tried way too hard to be clever at every single turn so gameplay was just tedious. Also, some puzzles have more than one correct solution (ie the dinner menu, and the checker game) so even if you are correct, you cannot move on until you figure out the “accepted” answer. I’m not in to having to re-solve things after spending a lot of time getting to the solution. This is a hard pass... it wasn’t even remotely fun because their clues and puzzles are so “out there”. I’m not saying the game should be easy but this game is chaotic and unrewarding.
Usually love these games
by swest133 on 2019/09/01 14:17
I am a big fan of these games, Murder Inn is my fourth one. But this game is ridiculously hard. There just aren’t enough hints and I’m not willing to pay for more. Ive been trying to play this off and on for months now because I get so frustrated I just set it aside.
Sharper mind while having fun!
by AlleneCarter on 2019/08/25 05:36
AE mysteries keep my brain learning while I get sucked into all these stories. I love it! I feel smarter since I started!
Hi
by Jonnytech on 2019/08/24 12:52
I think you should add more hints to your game
PLEASE FIX
by rissa430 on 2019/08/17 03:19
I absolutely LOVE this game. I can honestly say I’m obsessed.. I appreciate everything about this game EXCEPT the fact that it does not save your progress. That’s literally the only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars. It honestly makes me not want to play it because I’m having to redo everything I just did. And it’s even more frustrating when I’m spending money on stars and my progress is not being saved. This game is time consuming and nobody has the time to solve just in one sit in so why would you not have an option to save your progress. Please please fix this, I absolutely love this game so much and it’s just a huge disappointment that this is an issue.
Entertaining if frustrating
by Patmcguinn on 2019/08/14 02:08
Many of the clues and games made no sense without help but this game still holds your interest til the end.
Unsaved progress....
by S-capr on 2019/08/03 13:32
Like the varied puzzles on the Haiku games. On some, I have worked off &amp; on for hours because the game doesn’t save my progress, which I find frustrating. I had been farther along on a level and used 30 stars to skip one game, only to discover the next time I opened the game to have to restart the whole level yet again, minus the 30 stars AND still had the game to be played that I had previously skipped, before I could move on. I do understand not everybody will like EVERY game, but I do like your varied selection of games. A “restart” button would be helpful on more games.
Love these games
by Dissapointed ;( on 2019/07/09 17:13
I came across theses games playing another. Finally a game that challenges my mind. I’m wondering the last game I played I had 83 stars left which I purchase does it get transferred to another game or do I just lose them cuz that would not be good.
Terrible Game
by TheRealMPS on 2019/07/04 18:23
This is the WORST game. I spent money purchasing stars to get through certain points in the game, but the game starts at the beginning of a room if you go out and come back in. So, the money was completely wasted.
I Hate This Game
by G-Ghost on 2019/07/03 15:17
I&#39;ve played many of Haiku mystery games and this is by far the worst. This game is all over the place. Don&#39;t waste your time on this one, play another one instead.
Haiku Games = <3
by SweetSunshine_Girl on 2019/04/27 03:01
I love Haiku Games. Please keep the games coming. I really love it, and it never gets old. It is so unique from other escape games. I know I already said this, but please keep the games coming.
Not logical
by SunniSelfMade on 2019/04/09 23:34
This was a very fun adventure game BUT the hints and puzzles were way too hard at some points and did not give specific guidance in other aspects. I was super bored and interested in the storyline so I continued but DEFINITELY spent WAY too much money on skipping or hints to completely enjoy the game.
Good but not great.
by stuntbush on 2019/03/28 22:42
This is my least favorite of all the Haiku games. First of all some of the puzzles were a little too illogical. Secondly I encountered the most frustrating bug on the monitor where you have to click the dials. It kept going in a time loop over and over. It almost made me just delete the darn game. The story was good and it’s free but the hint system was not as generous as the others. It’s still a good way to pass some time but I would recommend playing some of the other games first.
A tough one, but I still love t
by duidance on 2019/03/18 06:11
I always want the figure out a Haiku game. Sometimes I get so frustrated with one (like this one), I&#39;ll delete and it. After several months, I&#39;ll download it and try again. Other Haiku games, I manage to complete without deleting along the way. These are great games for critical thinking. I wouldn&#39;t want the developers to change a thing... except for gameplay that requires physical functions such as finger tracking or device turning. Now that drives me crazy. I&#39;d rather just use my brain ;)
Insanely Good Games
by Pixieechick on 2019/03/17 22:17
These games are so original, well thought out and carefully articulated. Not only is the storyline intriguing but the gameplay is marvelous and you never want them to end. And somehow it seems like they don’t. When I think they are getting close, there is still so much more story to go and it’s fun from beginning to end. Totally satisfying. Many props to all who work on the Haiku games. You make um, I’ll keep playing them. Thank you for your original ideas, and for being so invested in what you do. It shows.
Great
by Nowanta on 2019/02/20 21:07
Finished it
Great mystery
by Heartbeat Semicolon on 2019/02/17 04:40
Full of intrigue and new puzzles. Very fun and engaging. Will keep coming back for more games from this developer.
Challenging puzzles, great graphics
by Catnipsy on 2019/01/29 18:33
The graphics in Haiku’s games are so vivid and attractive, even on a smaller iPhone. The puzzles are very tricky. Some I can figure myself but others I need help on. Rather dark plot on this one.
The best.
by phpijajs2019 on 2019/01/26 16:47
This is the best mystery/solve/escape game I have played.
Too hard
by pwruintgnkbd on 2019/01/17 04:15
Loved the first two games I played with the maker. I played asylum and the cult one and absolutely loved them but unfortunately this one is almost impossible to figure out. I’m not sure why this one is so much more difficult but really needs some improvement there is absolutely no indication of what to. Almost like walking around in the dark to try and remotely figure out what they want. I was upset to have and give up on this was but was not worth spending more money to buy more hints after countless purchases and attempts. Like I said the first two were great, not easy to figure out but also not impossible which was nice.
One of the best escape games!
by KatieEscape on 2018/12/27 21:46
I’ve played more escape games than I care to admit and this is the best company that makes them! Challenging but not impossible. Good story lines. Fun adventures. Highly recommend.
Doesn’t save progress
by Bakoboyz on 2018/12/21 06:30
Another great haiku game that doesn’t save. There was one particularly lengthy chapter that you couldn’t get through quickly and I’m just not going to do it again once I had to leave. I don’t have thirty minutes to spare or even ten. Let me save the chapter progress!!!! Had to delete. It’s not worth re doing.
Super fun
by Tasz mom on 2018/12/14 08:56
I was looking for a Christmas game to play when I ran across the Christmas Killer game by Haiku. I played it and I was hooked! Since then I have gotten all 15 Haiku escape games and only have 3 left to play. I can’t wait for the developers to make some new games because I’m sure I’ll be done with these soon. Great job! Your escape games are super fun.
3 stars
by Extreme*2 on 2018/12/07 02:37
This is a great game. Very nicely laid out plot, interesting characters, and wonderful graphics. I had zero glitches. My main issue is that so many of the puzzles were just impossible. Many times you have absolutely no idea what you need to do. I had to use a walkthrough probably more for this game than any other, on any platform. I didn&#39;t have so much trouble with some of Haiku&#39;s other games. It&#39;s a solid game. But super difficult.
These games are so awesome
by sylvst on 2018/12/03 05:51
Seriously. Do not pass go, do not collect. $200. Download these games now. They have tons of logic puzzles that will be convoluted enough that they’ll make you think, without being over the top. Honestly I just love these games
Very good, buuut
by 1899 code on 2018/11/28 09:20
I like this game. It is very entertaining. I got stuck and didn’t have enough stars or money to pay for stars. I wish hints were cheaper. I also say “ you have a right to have an opinion and if you think it is anti gun then you have a right to say it.” I think that review writer that had 5 stars on this game is a petty person who has nothing to do but right dumb reviews and only to be a brown noser. Don’t charge money for your games. Enough people go broke on paying for stars.
Nope
by EbertofGames on 2018/11/18 14:42
I’m a Haiku fan, so I was let down by this game. The plot is interesting, but the puzzles are not logical. Even after watching some tutorials, many of the puzzles still leave me scratching my head. Worst of all are the glitches. There are golden hint stars that are impossible to pick up. Also, the game does NOT save your place. So if you read a text and try to go back to your game, you have to start from the top of the chapter. Major let down.
Ugg
by 333Val333 on 2018/10/31 02:27
I wanted to love this game —really I did! —even though some of the clues are totally random &amp; unconnected —but i just couldn&#39;t because it wouldn’t save my games and I just couldn’t solve Chapter 3’s Sudoku puzzle one more time. Argh!!! Maybe it is an iPad glitch, but whatever it is...it needs fixin’ &amp; fast! Disappointed that I’ll never find out who killed Emily!
Not Saving
by cyndiban on 2018/10/23 12:06
Some of my chapters would save and some did not. There is no way for me to manually save them. The puzzles take time and it is frustrating to do them over. I’m done with Haiku games.
As a Haiku Games fan, this was bad
by Pkgdrhn on 2018/10/19 13:29
This game made me take a break from games completely...I came to download their most recent games, and wanted to take the opportunity to tell others to not waste your time.
Murder Inn
by new watchdog on 2018/10/13 16:45
The puzzles are ridiculous, you cannot figure most of them out without getting help. No stars.
Best Detective Kate Mystery Yet!
by ElizaCalvin on 2018/09/18 19:15
I stumbled across Haiku games about a month ago and I have never been more impressed with a mystery game—and it’s even free! So far, I have played Framed, Xmas Killer, Murder Manor, Starstruck, and Escape Cult and I would probably rank them in that order from best to “worst”, worst being relative, because I truly enjoyed them all! But this one take the cake! Murder Inn is my new favorite—the story line was excellent and my jaw dropped more than once when new information was revealed. As always with Haiku games, the graphics and storytelling are top-notch and I love that the focus is more on solving puzzles than just hidden objects. Get this game—you’ll love it!
Needs work

In level 4 I’ve had it freeze up twice and the checker game Is screwed up . I’m hoping for bug fix so I can restart

Don’t play unless you want to be lectured
by Ploegy Red raider on 2018/09/06 05:09
Thought I was playing a good puzzle game, until I was starting to be lectured over and over again on “how dangerous guns are”, and why no one should have them, and the people that do are absolutely terrible. Also you’ll be lectured on animal cruelty and for some reason the creator even attacked people that play contact sports because of head injuries they may get during them, seriously. Extremely disappointed with this!!!
Buggy
by roofoofighter on 2018/08/29 16:12
I love the other Haiku games but this one is just buggy. Many puzzles are impossible to pass, even with the right solution. (I.e. the checkers puzzle, or the sudoku figurines) The only way to advance past them is to pay stars, and those cost real money. What fun is that?
Actually Fun
by Maria Pad on 2018/08/18 04:15
Super fun and exciting, there are different puzzles but nothing you haven’t scene before either. Constantly had me thinking.
HORRIBLE
by Shelly49 on 2018/08/15 01:30
I almost couldn’t even get in the front door to even start! This game has the most HORRIBLE clues that make NO SENSE. I found myself having to look up almost everything on a walkthrough, so I just quit around the 3rd chapter because there’s ZERO fun in that. The whole point is to figure it out yourself which was impossible with the stupid clues given.
Worst game they have made!
by vter802 on 2018/07/29 02:16
Half of the answers to the clues do not make sense compared to the other mystery games that they have created.
Love it
by jackieb44 on 2018/07/10 04:37
Okay so I love this game it’s one of my favorite!!!!
Loved it until Scene 2
by Echilders on 2018/07/10 01:17
This is my third Haiku game I have downloaded and enjoyed up to a certain point. I’ve loved the first two games (Asylum and the Mansion) and I was able to complete the first two games. However, I couldn’t get past the second scene in this game and have tried for days but couldn’t get past the extremely limited clues in it. I think this game would benefit in more bonuses like additional daily stars to help people like me get through tough puzzles or provide at least a little bit more guidance. I love the Haiku games and am actually downloading another one right now. I’ve had to delete this one because I just got fed up with the really cryptic clues.
❤️ Haiku Games!
by Shan Carter on 2018/06/22 17:50
I have played a few Haiku Games already and love them all. This one was pretty extensive and well done. There were a few clues I missed, but I was able to find the codes with brute force anyway. Lots of plot twists in this game.
I usually don't do this but....
by Notey1243 on 2018/06/21 20:30
Every Haiku game I&#39;ve played has been beyond stellar. Puzzles aren&#39;t too easy/challenging and the graphics are great in comparison to other free Escape games.
Checkers?
by DanieJo12356 on 2018/06/03 01:44
With all the complaints you would think you’d fix the checkers game! Can’t get past it even after copying the walkthrough.
Mysterys
by Emma Oceanshade on 2018/06/02 15:54
I love all the murder mysterys they challenge me.
To hard to finish
by mrsThomas53 on 2018/05/22 23:02
I gave one star because after spending money for hints I am still not able to get out of the room with the camera after the power went out . How do I get back to trying to solve this murder
So much fun!
by alysiaamariee on 2018/05/19 04:43
I’ve been playing Haiku Games for about 3 years already and I could never get enough! This game is so much fun as well as all the other haiku games! It’s so suspenseful m! Like a book I can’t put down! I highly recommend 🤗
Haiku does it again!
by jennifer626 on 2018/05/17 03:29
After a few stumbles over the holidays where Haiku released games too quickly, they are back and better than ever with Murder Inn. No bugs, smooth interface, clearly passed QA with flying colors. Moreover, they have really upped the ante with new sophisticated, challenging puzzles, and the storyline remains engaging and well thought out. Haiku has some of the best free games for iOS, and this one can safely be added to that list.
Mixed feelings
by El987654321 on 2018/05/10 19:31
I liked this game but it had a lot of glitches. It would put my clues over in the right hand column in the wrong place. So then I would not be able to click on them. Also if I finished a section of the game (room) and “quit game” it would make me completely do the level all over again. Also in the beginning of the game it wouldn’t let me start the game like it should. It was stuck on the to Tutorial for way to long.
Another greaT game
by Rad333 on 2018/05/05 18:23
I have downloaded and played all the haiku games adventure escape. They are the perfect balance of challenge and pace. The hint system is just right to keep things moving if you get really stuck but puzzles aren’t too hard or too easy. Some of them take a while, though. And I am very impressed with the way the developers come up with so many different puzzle ideas in spite of all the games they have out. Good job! Highly recommend for people who like these kind of puzzle escape adventure games.
Great games!
by Ram-50 on 2018/05/04 20:57
Fun and challenging games. Sure, some of the puzzles have logic that escapes me, but most are incredibly creative. Great graphics, worth your time. I only wish there was some way to save your progress during a level. If you leave part way through to do something else, you may have to replay the entire level. But kudos to the creators.
Amazing
by tbhobsessed on 2018/05/02 22:41
I loved this game a lot; it was really thought out and it just had me wanting more after every unlocked clue or secret door. I think the mystery was pretty good as well, so that while you’re solving clues you’re also guessing who the murderer was. All in all, I really enjoyed this and I hope Haiku Games makes more Murder Manors.
Murder Inn
by Noitisnottaken on 2018/04/30 16:05
The checkerboard game directions are not possible. Even copying the walk through, where it said the solution didn’t follow the rules, I could not get the board to open. Without that jokey, I cannot continue. Also, the ski run clue made no sense to me even with the walkthrough hints, I just took those numbers from the “cheat.”
Haiku Games are Great... This One No Exception..!
by PippaChicka on 2018/04/29 16:16
Awesome games. Graphics and storyline can&#39;t be beat. The puzzles are challenging, clever, but not impossible. There seems to be a glitch on the mouse maze, though, so I rated it a 4. Another winner from Haiku.
Frustrated 😤
by divademi23 on 2018/04/28 13:25
I really like the game but I’m stuck! When I got to the checkerboard, I did as the directions say so and it still won’t let me pass. I assumed I must be doing something wrong so I looked up at the walkthrough and followed how they did it and still nothing! Is there something I or the developer can do something about it? I really wanna continue the game. Do something about it!
Best of show
by geoffkrass on 2018/04/11 06:56
Absolutely the best games out there. Highly addicted, need more!!!!
Some nice touches but many arbitrary "clues"
by tr1999 on 2018/03/23 03:35
I really like Haiku games and many of them are high quality and have well thought out stories and clues. This one however does not live up to the quality of the others. Many of the clues seem arbitrary, and some are downright bad. Clues should be logical. “Jay”, “Let’s play”, the bowl of fruit, the chair lift, those are arbitrary connections that are made up from convenience. Because the connections are arbitrary you often miss clues, I still cannot see a 5 in one of the clues for example because it is so distorted and there were numbers in another panel. I certainly hope Haiku can keep up the quality of Murder Manor and especially Asylum.
Excellent game
by FashionistaLA07 on 2018/03/21 19:35
Another fantastic game from Haiku games, which immerses the player in a snowy winter mystery, filled with suspense and intrigue at every turn. All that is needed is a cup of hot chocolate to go along with it. Just as intriguing is how this excellent game is actually getting low-star reviews from some nutcases claiming this game is putting out “anti-gun propaganda” or was “impossible”. Maybe if you have the IQ of a doorknob. This game has excellent artwork, a great immersive story, and just challenging enough puzzles. I would like to see what these armchair critics with impossible standards think is a good game, because I haven’t found anything better than these, and I’m an avid game player. Haiku Games, I think it’s time you start charging for your games, so you can be more selective as to who gets the privilege of playing and rating these games, and you get a more genuine audience who actually is smart enough to spot a good game when they see one.

Difficult but fun
...just wow
by SHB on 2018/03/14 06:00
First of all, puzzles towards the beginning were ridiculous...SECOND...what&#39;s with the anti-gun propaganda?!? Why can&#39;t games just be games?! Sick of the liberal propaganda that infiltrates everything, even a stupid game! Way to ruin everything, snowflakes...
Interesting and unique
by Rtiger2 on 2018/03/10 03:14
I love every escape/adventure game from this developer. The story line keeps the game changing and interesting, and the puzzles are unique- not the same old puzzles or games that you find in every other escape game. I was tired of escaping from “this room”, then “that room”, when really just the scenery changed. Every game from this developer is fresh, interesting and fun. PLEASE keep making more!
Puzzles too difficult/ clues worthless
by EleniSS on 2018/03/04 19:31
I’ve played the other games by this developer and they were fun. A good mix of challenging puzzles with easier ones. This game was by far the worse. I needed clues which were worthless; wasting stars. I found the hints were for puzzles I’d already done!! How stupid is that. I resorted to the walkthroughs which even when puzzles were explained didn’t make sense. Not worth your time.
Great balance of difficulty and do-ability.
by eburgpirates on 2018/02/17 18:20
Just hard enough to be fun, but not so hard you gotta be a super genius. The levels aren’t too long. I needed help a couple times, but I like that you can skip a task with your star things if you have enough of them. I’ve downloaded a couple by this developer, and will keep doing so.
Hmm...
by DelleeComeOn on 2018/01/29 06:23
This is what I was thinking way too much in this Adventure Escape game. I&#39;ve really enjoyed all the previous ones, and this one wasn&#39;t bad. It had an interesting story. But a lot of the puzzles were much harder than previous Adventure Escapes. Like, seemingly impossible. The clues were mostly fun to figure out, but they too were sometimes a bit too tricky. I really enjoyed the game when I could figure stuff out on my own, but there were too many times when I couldn&#39;t.
No fun
by no fn on 2018/01/29 05:27
The games r 2 hard and u only get so many stars and if u can’t fix the game then u use ur stars up. I’m on the ski game and I can’t figure it out no matter what? Help please?
Love haiku games
by Just a suggestion...^_^ on 2018/01/26 03:39
I love these games! This one seems a lot more difficult to get through. I didn’t understand the note in the office trash can but I figured the puzzles out; great game!
No thanks
by Sestine on 2018/01/25 01:29
Haiku games keep getting harder because of the bugs and far-fetched logic. This will be my last one. Too bad. They used to be fun.
Checkers still not working
by Dhvfo on 2018/01/21 06:17
Some of the clues are too far out there, but I am still not able to get the checkers to work
Glitch in game
by Courtnnnnnney on 2018/01/18 22:04
I would have given 5 stars...the puzzles are challenging and the graphics are great. But anytime you get a puzzle that requires you to “tap to rotate” the puzzle pieces. It doesn’t rotate. I’m playing on a iPhone but I’m pretty much stuck cause of this glitch.
Liked A Lot not loved
by Slodfjrnkelf on 2018/01/15 00:14
I&#39;m a huge fan of Haiku games, but this one seemed a little far fetched for the logic. Some of the puzzles were glitchy and some of the clues were non-sensical. I still played the whole thing, but I used way more clues than usual and found myself saying &#34;huh&#34; afterwards. However HUGE PROPS for bringing awareness to mental health.

Too Complex!
by Eliebean80 on 2018/01/14 08:39
I love all the Haiku games but this one seemed too complicated. It was very hard to find clues to solving the puzzles or combinations. In some cases there were no clues and left some unanswered questions. They never did get the note that was in the washer. What was is? And what did it say? It&#39;s the first haiku game where I just wanted it to be over. It was more frustrating then entertainment.

by AppUnwrapper on 2018/01/03 02:39
Made it all the way to the last chapter and I quit during the ridiculous footprints mini game. When I opened it again, I couldn’t access anything. Only choice is to delete the game and either forget about it or restart it.
Another great one
by EscapeJunky on 2017/12/30 23:17

Love haiku games
by Kaylahdevon on 2017/12/30 22:47
I love haiku games but I can’t even finish this one it won’t let me . Also every time you had to tap to rotate something you had to tap a million times . Some of the puzzles didn’t even make sense so I had to use the walkthrough a few times . I will still play haiku games though because I love them
Haiku Games, Really?
by ToriTootsieroll on 2017/12/29 01:42
Don’t get me wrong, i still played it the whole way through, but this one had puzzles that were glitchy, were too difficult, and went on for too long. i’m hesitant to even play the other new release because i felt obligated to finish this one whereas the other games, i get so involved that i finish it in a day. just wasn’t fun this time.
Unsaved progress....
by S-capr on 2019/08/03 13:32
Like the varied puzzles on the Haiku games. On some, I have worked off &amp; on for hours because the game doesn’t save my progress, which I find frustrating. I had been farther along on a level and used 30 stars to skip one game, only to discover the next time I opened the game to have to restart the whole level yet again, minus the 30 stars AND still had the game to be played that I had previously skipped, before I could move on. I do understand not everybody will like EVERY game, but I do like your varied selection of games. A “restart” button would be helpful on more games.
Excellent game
by FashionistaLA07 on 2018/03/21 19:35
Another fantastic game from Haiku games, which immerses the player in a snowy winter mystery, filled with suspense and intrigue at every turn. All that is needed is a cup of hot chocolate to go along with it. Just as intriguing is how this excellent game is actually getting low-star reviews from some nutcases claiming this game is putting out “anti-gun propaganda” or was “impossible”. Maybe if you have the IQ of a doorknob. This game has excellent artwork, a great immersive story, and just challenging enough puzzles. I would like to see what these armchair critics with impossible standards think is a good game, because I haven’t found anything better than these, and I’m an avid game player. Haiku Games, I think it’s time you start charging for your games, so you can be more selective as to who gets the privilege of playing and rating these games, and you get a more genuine audience who actually is smart enough to spot a good game when they see one.
Best Detective Kate Mystery Yet!
by ElizaCalvin on 2018/09/18 19:15
I stumbled across Haiku games about a month ago and I have never been more impressed with a mystery game—and it’s even free! So far, I have played Framed, Xmas Killer, Murder Manor, Starstruck, and Escape Cult and I would probably rank them in that order from best to “worst”, worst being relative, because I truly enjoyed them all! But this one take the cake! Murder Inn is my new favorite—the story line was excellent and my jaw dropped more than once when new information was revealed. As always with Haiku games, the graphics and storytelling are top-notch and I love that the focus is more on solving puzzles than just hidden objects. Get this game—you’ll love it!
No thanks...
by Hollywould3 on 2019/09/01 17:52
I had just played Haunted Hunt and was so thrilled and impressed that I looked for another Haiku game. Murder Inn was such a let down. Waaay too many ambiguous clues and puzzles that were boring and redundant, not to mention frustrating. I think they tried way too hard to be clever at every single turn so gameplay was just tedious. Also, some puzzles have more than one correct solution (ie the dinner menu, and the checker game) so even if you are correct, you cannot move on until you figure out the “accepted” answer. I’m not in to having to re-solve things after spending a lot of time getting to the solution. This is a hard pass... it wasn’t even remotely fun because their clues and puzzles are so “out there”. I’m not saying the game should be easy but this game is chaotic and unrewarding.
Loved it until Scene 2
by Echilders on 2018/07/10 01:17
This is my third Haiku game I have downloaded and enjoyed up to a certain point. I’ve loved the first two games (Asylum and the Mansion) and I was able to complete the first two games. However, I couldn’t get past the second scene in this game and have tried for days but couldn’t get past the extremely limited clues in it. I think this game would benefit in more bonuses like additional daily stars to help people like me get through tough puzzles or provide at least a little bit more guidance. I love the Haiku games and am actually downloading another one right now. I’ve had to delete this one because I just got fed up with the really cryptic clues.
Very good, buuut
by 1899 code on 2018/11/28 09:20
I like this game. It is very entertaining. I got stuck and didn’t have enough stars or money to pay for stars. I wish hints were cheaper. I also say “ you have a right to have an opinion and if you think it is anti gun then you have a right to say it.” I think that review writer that had 5 stars on this game is a petty person who has nothing to do but right dumb reviews and only to be a brown noser. Don’t charge money for your games. Enough people go broke on paying for stars.
A tough one, but I still love t
by duidance on 2019/03/18 06:11
I always want the figure out a Haiku game. Sometimes I get so frustrated with one (like this one), I&#39;ll delete and it. After several months, I&#39;ll download it and try again. Other Haiku games, I manage to complete without deleting along the way. These are great games for critical thinking. I wouldn&#39;t want the developers to change a thing... except for gameplay that requires physical functions such as finger tracking or device turning. Now that drives me crazy. I&#39;d rather just use my brain ;)
Insanely Good Games
by Pixieechick on 2019/03/17 22:17
These games are so original, well thought out and carefully articulated. Not only is the storyline intriguing but the gameplay is marvelous and you never want them to end. And somehow it seems like they don’t. When I think they are getting close, there is still so much more story to go and it’s fun from beginning to end. Totally satisfying. Many props to all who work on the Haiku games. You make um, I’ll keep playing them. Thank you for your original ideas, and for being so invested in what you do. It shows.
Another greaT game
by Rad333 on 2018/05/05 18:23
I have downloaded and played all the haiku games adventure escape. They are the perfect balance of challenge and pace. The hint system is just right to keep things moving if you get really stuck but puzzles aren’t too hard or too easy. Some of them take a while, though. And I am very impressed with the way the developers come up with so many different puzzle ideas in spite of all the games they have out. Good job! Highly recommend for people who like these kind of puzzle escape adventure games.
No WiFi Game
by Widderune on 2020/03/14 01:48
This game plays like a escape game, but it has a plot with cutscenes (hence, Adventure Escape). Many of the puzzles can be solved with ease, but the developers leave enough difficult puzzles for you to try and figure out (the hard puzzles are usually at the end of a chapter). You can find and collect stars to use as currency for answers, but try not to use them unless it is necessary. The best part (of course) is you do not need any WiFi to play this game. Haiku Games craft their apps rather well. No disappointments so far.
PLEASE FIX
by rissa430 on 2019/08/17 03:19
I absolutely LOVE this game. I can honestly say I’m obsessed.. I appreciate everything about this game EXCEPT the fact that it does not save your progress. That’s literally the only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars. It honestly makes me not want to play it because I’m having to redo everything I just did. And it’s even more frustrating when I’m spending money on stars and my progress is not being saved. This game is time consuming and nobody has the time to solve just in one sit in so why would you not have an option to save your progress. Please please fix this, I absolutely love this game so much and it’s just a huge disappointment that this is an issue.
Some nice touches but many arbitrary "clues"
by tr1999 on 2018/03/23 03:35
I really like Haiku games and many of them are high quality and have well thought out stories and clues. This one however does not live up to the quality of the others. Many of the clues seem arbitrary, and some are downright bad. Clues should be logical. “Jay”, “Let’s play”, the bowl of fruit, the chair lift, those are arbitrary connections that are made up from convenience. Because the connections are arbitrary you often miss clues, I still cannot see a 5 in one of the clues for example because it is so distorted and there were numbers in another panel. I certainly hope Haiku can keep up the quality of Murder Manor and especially Asylum.
Too hard
by pwruintgnkbd on 2019/01/17 04:15
Loved the first two games I played with the maker. I played asylum and the cult one and absolutely loved them but unfortunately this one is almost impossible to figure out. I’m not sure why this one is so much more difficult but really needs some improvement there is absolutely no indication of what to. Almost like walking around in the dark to try and remotely figure out what they want. I was upset to have and give up on this was but was not worth spending more money to buy more hints after countless purchases and attempts. Like I said the first two were great, not easy to figure out but also not impossible which was nice.
Long and entertaining
by Bunny Blackrose on 2019/09/30 06:04
This gave me many days of entertainment. The story in this adventure escape game was much more in depth than I expected. The only complaint I would have is that it is sometimes very unclear what clue is for what puzzle, and when getting hints it almost always isn’t presenting me with information related to what I am working on or is a hint to something I have already done. I would however still highly recommend this game.
Good game
by degal48 on 2019/11/24 19:43
Overall a good game. Biggest problem is that it does not save your progress. At least when you have saved a major puzzle, when you come back, it lets you skip for free. If you solve a combination lock, write it down for when you come back to the game
Haiku does it again!
by jennifer626 on 2018/05/17 03:29
After a few stumbles over the holidays where Haiku released games too quickly, they are back and better than ever with Murder Inn. No bugs, smooth interface, clearly passed QA with flying colors. Moreover, they have really upped the ante with new sophisticated, challenging puzzles, and the storyline remains engaging and well thought out. Haiku has some of the best free games for iOS, and this one can safely be added to that list.
Interesting and unique

Solutions inexplicable
by ChitownD on 2020/05/25 21:12
You know it’s going to be bad when you can’t figure out the tutorial puzzle. This is the fifth Haiku games escape app that I’ve played and the only one that doesn’t get five stars. Although the storyline is interesting and compelling, the puzzles are impossible. It’s not that they are “too challenging,” but the solutions are not intuitive or even related to the clues given; they are arbitrary. Even when presented with the solutions, it’s difficult to see the path to the answer. It is far too frustrating to merit any more time than already spent.
Good but not great.
by stuntbush on 2019/03/28 22:42
This is my least favorite of all the Haiku games. First of all some of the puzzles were a little too illogical. Secondly I encountered the most frustrating bug on the monitor where you have to click the dials. It kept going in a time loop over and over. It almost made me just delete the darn game. The story was good and it’s free but the hint system was not as generous as the others. It’s still a good way to pass some time but I would recommend playing some of the other games first.
Hmm...

by Ram-50 on 2018/05/04 20:57
Fun and challenging games. Sure, some of the puzzles have logic that escapes me, but most are incredibly creative. Great graphics, worth your time. I only wish there was some way to save your progress during a level. If you leave part way through to do something else, you may have to replay the entire level. But kudos to the creators.
Great balance of difficulty and do-ability.
by eburgpirates on 2018/02/17 18:20
Just hard enough to be fun, but not so hard you gotta be a super genius. The levels aren’t too long. I needed help a couple times, but I like that you can skip a task with your star things if you have enough of them. I’ve downloaded a couple by this developer, and will keep doing so.
3 stars
by Extreme*2 on 2018/12/07 02:37
This is a great game. Very nicely laid out plot, interesting characters, and wonderful graphics. I had zero glitches. My main issue is that so many of the puzzles were just impossible. Many times you have absolutely no idea what you need to do. I had to use a walkthrough probably more for this game than any other, on any platform. I didn&#39;t have so much trouble with some of Haiku&#39;s other games. It&#39;s a solid game. But super difficult.
Super fun
by Tasz mom on 2018/12/14 08:56
I was looking for a Christmas game to play when I ran across the Christmas Killer game by Haiku. I played it and I was hooked! Since then I have gotten all 15 Haiku escape games and only have 3 left to play. I can’t wait for the developers to make some new games because I’m sure I’ll be done with these soon. Great job! Your escape games are super fun.
Love Adventure Escape Games
by Ailin8 on 2020/04/16 20:20
I love these games! The story lines are interesting, the puzzles range from easy to challenging. I love that they’re not riddled with ads, and that it’s still possible to play without spending money. The design is really nice looking, and Detective Grey is a cool character! Haiku Gamed have come a long way from their first mystery puzzle app!
Amazing
by tbhobsessed on 2018/05/02 22:41
I loved this game a lot; it was really thought out and it just had me wanting more after every unlocked clue or secret door. I think the mystery was pretty good as well, so that while you’re solving clues you’re also guessing who the murderer was. All in all, I really enjoyed this and I hope Haiku Games makes more Murder Manors.
Mixed feelings
by El987654321 on 2018/05/10 19:31
I liked this game but it had a lot of glitches. It would put my clues over in the right hand column in the wrong place. So then I would not be able to click on them. Also if I finished a section of the game (room) and “quit game” it would make me completely do the level all over again. Also in the beginning of the game it wouldn’t let me start the game like it should. It was stuck on the to Tutorial for way to long.
Frustrated 😤
by divademi23 on 2018/04/28 13:25
I really like the game but I’m stuck! When I got to the checkerboard, I did as the directions say so and it still won’t let me pass. I assumed I must be doing something wrong so I looked up at the walkthrough and followed how they did it and still nothing! Is there something I or the developer can do something about it? I really wanna continue the game. Do something about it!
This game could use some work...
by Brynsdad on 2020/07/24 15:47
I loved this game until I got stuck on a level and I can’t beat it. I have tried just about everything and I still can’t pass it. I think that it would help to give daily stars or at least lower the costs of the hints. I can’t even get past level 4 and it’s driving me nuts. I’m starting to think there is no solution. Please fix this as soon as possible.

by Dissapointed ;( on 2019/07/09 17:13
I came across theses games playing another. Finally a game that challenges my mind. I’m wondering the last game I played I had 83 stars left which I purchase does it get transferred to another game or do I just lose them cuz that would not be good.
These games are so awesome
by sylvst on 2018/12/03 05:51
Seriously. Do not pass go, do not collect. $200. Download these games now. They have tons of logic puzzles that will be convoluted enough that they’ll make you think, without being over the top. Honestly I just love these games
Don’t play unless you want to be lectured
by Ploegy Red raider on 2018/09/06 05:09
Thought I was playing a good puzzle game, until I was starting to be lectured over and over again on “how dangerous guns are”, and why no one should have them, and the people that do are absolutely terrible. Also you’ll be lectured on animal cruelty and for some reason the creator even attacked people that play contact sports because of head injuries they may get during them, seriously. Extremely disappointed with this!!!
Glitch in game
by Courtnnnnnney on 2018/01/18 22:04
I would have given 5 stars...the puzzles are challenging and the graphics are great. But anytime you get a puzzle that requires you to “tap to rotate” the puzzle pieces. It doesn’t rotate. I’m playing on a iPhone but I’m pretty much stuck cause of this glitch.
Doesn’t save progress
by Bakoboyz on 2018/12/21 06:30
Another great haiku game that doesn’t save. There was one particularly lengthy chapter that you couldn’t get through quickly and I’m just not going to do it again once I had to leave. I don’t have thirty minutes to spare or even ten. Let me save the chapter progress!!!! Had to delete. It’s not worth re doing.
Nope
by EbertofGames on 2018/11/18 14:42
I’m a Haiku fan, so I was let down by this game. The plot is interesting, but the puzzles are not logical. Even after watching some tutorials, many of the puzzles still leave me scratching my head. Worst of all are the glitches. There are golden hint stars that are impossible to pick up. Also, the game does NOT save your place. So if you read a text and try to go back to your game, you have to start from the top of the chapter. Major let down.
Ugg
by 333Val333 on 2018/10/31 02:27
I wanted to love this game —really I did! —even though some of the clues are totally random &amp; unconnected —but i just couldn&#39;t because it wouldn’t save my games and I just couldn’t solve Chapter 3’s Sudoku puzzle one more time. Argh!!! Maybe it is an iPad glitch, but whatever it is...it needs fixin’ &amp; fast! Disappointed that I’ll never find out who killed Emily!
So much fun!
by alysiaamariee on 2018/05/19 04:43
I’ve been playing Haiku Games for about 3 years already and I could never get enough! This game is so much fun as well as all the other haiku games! It’s so suspenseful m! Like a book I can’t put down! I highly recommend 🤗
❤️ Haiku Games!
by Shan Carter on 2018/06/22 17:50
I have played a few Haiku Games already and love them all. This one was pretty extensive and well done. There were a few clues I missed, but I was able to find the codes with brute force anyway. Lots of plot twists in this game.
WELL WORTH A PLAY!
by SmartyMartyMartelli on 2019/11/14 04:45
I rarely give games a “5-star” rating, but this game is so well thought-out, so expansive, and so dang fun—and IT’S FREE—that I had to write this review. If you enjoy point-and-click puzzle-adventure games, this is a must-play. Well done, Haiku!
Puzzles too difficult/ clues worthless
by EleniSS on 2018/03/04 19:31
I’ve played the other games by this developer and they were fun. A good mix of challenging puzzles with easier ones. This game was by far the worse.

Usually love these games
by swest133 on 2019/09/01 14:17
I am a big fan of these games, Murder Inn is my fourth one. But this game is ridiculously hard. There just aren’t enough hints and I’m not willing to pay for more. Ive been trying to play this off and on for months now because I get so frustrated I just set it aside.
Love haiku games

One of the best escape games!
by KatieEscape on 2018/12/27 21:46
I’ve played more escape games than I care to admit and this is the best company that makes them! Challenging but not impossible. Good story lines. Fun adventures. Highly recommend.
I usually don't do this but....
by Notey1243 on 2018/06/21 20:30
Every Haiku game I&#39;ve played has been beyond stellar. Puzzles aren&#39;t too easy/challenging and the graphics are great in comparison to other free Escape games.
Murder Inn
by Noitisnottaken on 2018/04/30 16:05
The checkerboard game directions are not possible. Even copying the walk through, where it said the solution didn’t follow the rules, I could not get the board to open. Without that jokey, I cannot continue. Also, the ski run clue made no sense to me even with the walkthrough hints, I just took those numbers from the “cheat.”
Stopped working at the final level
by ;.1 on 2020/05/19 08:16
It’s a good game but I couldn’t finish cuz it got stuck in a level where it wouldn’t let move the flash light. That really sucked. I restarted my phone and everything. Hope they fix it.
