Would suggest playing
by theloganator01 on 2020/10/26 19:49
Wasn’t sure how this game would play out, but was pleasantly surprised at how fun it was. Wish it was longer though.
Solve it
by clock70 on 2020/10/21 06:14
Little different then their other games. It passes time but it pulls you in to find out who done it
Nicely done
by qweryvjdihj on 2020/10/18 13:51
I rather enjoyed it, it puts you in the story and gives you options on what you might want. I’m downloading 2 & 3 now
Great game!
by Juicyto22 on 2020/10/15 19:41
I have only played 1 of these games and it was great! Storyline good, graphics pretty good. Overall a great game! I will be downloading the others. Peace and love everyone
Great Game
by ButterflyWarriorKJ on 2020/10/09 04:08
I absolutely loved this game, but do think we should receive more then 5 keys at a time or at least allow people to watch videos for coins and keys, but overall, you gained a new fan! On to the next one 🥰
Great game
by Puzzle2me on 2020/10/01 22:20
Cannot wait to replay with different choices. Love the way the game operates and it is fun.
Fun, Entertaining Game

I really enjoyed this. It was fun, entertaining and I love games that let me choose the way I play. Please keep up the great work!
Good game

Love the game!!!!!’ I hope the come out with more cases so can play more. Story line really keeps you interested and engaged.. To the make of game—- PLEASE PLEASE MAKE MORE CASES!!!!!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
New game and loving it!
by flagcomm1 on 2020/08/31 02:37
I was curious to play this game as other reviewers indicated there were no puzzles to play. That was a major selling point for me. I just finished playing and it was fun. Now I want to go back and see if I can change things up with other responses.
Good storyline but
by -_- terrible on 2020/08/24 22:54
I don’t like how you have limited keys and have to wait. You should be able to just go straight through.
Game
by Franz18-7 on 2020/08/23 23:54
Great game and loved playing it. Can’t wait for the next one
Great Game!
by Katie-stiles on 2020/08/19 23:33
I thought this game was really fun! I really like all the games by Haiku!
It’s a cool game
by creativeladyjerz on 2020/08/07 12:13
I like it just wish there were more keys at once Just as you get into it the keys are gone
Why didn’t I find this game sooner?

It’s worth dơnloading!!

Lesbian Sex ftw
by xanphillee on 2020/07/30 05:50
This game kinda sexy for real, I like it 😁
Very fun but...
by inconvenient left hander on 2020/07/29 20:23
I really enjoy all their games. Not a bad one. They’re similar enough that the game play is easy to pick up but different enough to make them unique. The only thing I don’t like is how you have to use the right arrow to flip through text. I’m left handed so my hand is constantly crossing the screen. It’s a small thing but very annoying. A lot of other games you can touch anyway which is very left hand friendly. Just something I wish was changed
Fun game
by RhonVD on 2020/07/21 22:48
I enjoyed the interactive aspect of this game.
Great mystery
by Shelly81 on 2020/07/18 04:51
I really liked how you had the choices.
Great murder mystery game!
by Coley Star on 2020/07/17 12:46
I try my best to find good murder mystery games but, they always turn out to be lame. This one was far by the best, plus romance! Amazing! Haiku keep making good games.
Sooo fun!
by BLMSALOT on 2020/07/16 14:29
This is A-MA-ZING! If you are reading this, trust me, you will have no regrets with this game! There is nothing I will suggest, it's perfect, and so fun. I just wish one thing, actually... maybe the romances could be free, but have a little consequence instead of costing money? It's just, you barely get any money and I really would like to have the romance with Logan.
Help?
by help!!stop! on 2020/07/15 00:09
I loved this game! Sadly, However, I am supposed to talk to Cindy about Herchels girlfriend, but the clue didn’t show up, so I unfortunately can’t. I wish there was a way to reset the game, but I can’t do that either. I’m really stuck. Help?
Enjoyable
by Specificnamethatisnottaken on 2020/07/14 19:37
Entertaining
Fun and witty
by OHfit4 on 2020/07/13 02:02
Love the conversations and storyline! Fun to play, and great to play whether you have a few minutes or if you have an hour.
Escape asylum

So far it seems to be fun finding hints and solving puzzles!
Great novel and a fun mystery
by Ink_ninja on 2020/07/05 16:16
I really enjoyed this game. The story was good and the mystery was fun to solve. I’ll definitely be playing the next chapter.
Gets steamy!
by Hgoddard on 2020/07/03 02:01
Seriously, keep developing these! I have downloaded and completed these escape/puzzle games at least once each. Love love love! They’re challenging enough to keep you interested.
Love it!
by Altaircsus on 2020/06/27 22:39
I downloaded this game from another one of the games, and I loved it! The extra little parts of the stories were fun. All of it reminded me of the old “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, but you couldn’t mess up the case (as far as I saw). My only concern was sometimes having to restart a cheaper if my phone locked or timed out...not completely annoying, but could be confusing sometimes
Really fun gameplay, boring ending
by Superkate135 on 2020/06/25 13:44
It was really fun but the ending was underwhelming. Definitely worth playing though!
Fun Interactive Story
by RRdz1 on 2020/06/23 23:23
I have tried a couple of interactive story apps, and this is by far my favorite. I like that the choices are interesting and we do not need to spend money on diamonds for a chance at a better choice to improve the story. This story is already engaging and fun. I love the characters and the fact that the keys replenish within a few minutes. Thank you so much for this game, please, please, make more engaging stories like this one and do not go the same route as the other interactive stories where you give up because the ridiculous amount of diamonds they charge for the choice and then they expect you to buy diamonds on top of it. You did it perfectly and I love your game!
Fun Novel.
by B00K33P3R on 2020/06/19 05:59
I have played and enjoyed many of the Haiku games (all of which were the puzzle oriented one). Therefore, this series I was unsure of since it wasn’t like their normal game style. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the novels were made. I have looked at other reviews that comment on the negative aspects of these kinds of games: having to purchase coins, waiting for keys to unlock the next section, picking a word choice and then regretting it instantly. These are all certainly irritating side affects of visual novels. However, Haiku games allows the player to work around said annoyances. To avoid spending excessively with real money, you can play through the game multiple times and continue to reap coins to buy that extra scene. Wait time is half an hour, which to be fair isn’t a very long time. I found it rather the perfect time increment to go finish something else before returning to the game. Over all, this game was and still is a very fun game to play through because I didn’t have to worry about missing out something (a common occurrence with other visual novels).
Amazing🤩🤩🤩
by Koala 870 on 2020/06/12 13:42
This game is incredible. The puzzles are challenging but still solve able. The story line is incredible. I have played all of the games and can’t wait for more to be released!
Something New
by Kat.Fish.Swim on 2020/06/12 01:00
I was looking for a detective game. This game caught my attention because I’m an avid reader. It combines reading and investigating. It kept my interest and I could leave and come back to the game later. My only complaint is the one scene at the cafe. It was a bit weak. It seemed like it was a rush to tie up loose ends. Overall this was a cool diversion. I look forward to more of episodes.
Haiku Games is Great!
by Phrasewheelluvr on 2020/06/07 15:58
I prefer their escape adventure games because they are more interactive but overall this is a great game as well!
So much fun
by nezus333 on 2020/06/04 01:05
The game was lots of fun. It gave you many options to choose from to move the story along. I am looking forward to play the next one.
Great!!
by Cvvjkfdvv on 2020/06/04 00:31
Fun game
Great game!
by Vetiver Apothecary on 2020/05/27 16:22
I’ve downloaded and played all three of these now and LOVE THEM. They’re fun story lines with good twists and turns. Appreciate that they’re not dependent on coins, and really like the code-cracking moments. Add more cool puzzles into the storylines and make a 4th story please :) thanks for making this available for free!
Love Haiku Games
by 0277373 on 2020/05/27 06:03
As always Haiku games never fail to excite me! Fan since day 1 cant wait for more stories to come.
Interesting
by MrWhysper on 2020/05/26 21:06
One of the more interesting apps it’s been my pleasure to sample.
It is pretty good
by joksteer on 2020/05/24 22:10
My only complaint is waiting 25 minutes for another key, and then only being able to play for about 2 minutes. I don’t mind spending a little money on a game, but this feels like I am being forced to. Not a good feeling.
Good app designer!
by collegeboardisascam on 2020/05/22 07:54
I don’t normally write reviews, but I’ve played a bunch of Haiku games at this point. I like puzzle games and there’s a wide variety of options from them. Thanks to Haiku, it’s a thumbs up from me :)
#1 go to for mystery case solving games.
by Ken.ology on 2020/05/21 04:44
All of their story lines are original and even intense enough to keep coming back for more! Out of all the game apps I’ve tried this one by far has the best puzzles as well and u don’t have to wait too long for keys and perks are good without having to pay too much for diamonds and stuff. I love it! I love them ! Just download and play already!!!
Fun
by Fujihanna on 2020/05/19 14:12
Not much dexterity needed.
My favorite games ever
by LoveBug6738 on 2020/05/14 00:33
Haiku is a free gameplay adventure filled with magic and mystery. Murder and mayhem. Life and death choices. And I never get bored! So jump into the fun!
The review
by Agent SWAT X on 2020/05/11 12:24
It is the best game of a homicide game I have ever played and I played everything else except this one
Best Game I’ve played!
by hanniemarie123 on 2020/05/01 05:05
I LOVE this game! Love the crime, the in depth choice making and the blips of romance. I was devastated to see how short it was though! I thought I might get a second case but it was only one case. Are more cases coming?? I’d love to see the story continue.
Fun Game
by Lirpapril on 2020/04/30 14:49
I like the mystery. It wasn’t long enough but it was fun.
Clever Setting
by Soccer17hrabor on 2020/04/28 15:27
The clever storyline where everything is taking place in a fancy tower. I had no clue who the murder was until the very end. Props to Haiku!
PRICES
by F. Karim on 2020/04/26 22:39
I love the game but the fact that I have to wait 30 minutes for one key each is an issue. The user can either wait or purchase the keys but if that’s ok with you then go ahead.
Fun
by Becky 03 on 2020/04/24 19:48
It was different, but I liked it

A Game of Choices
by Reviewer296446 on 2020/04/18 04:12
I've played all the other Haiku games and decided to give this one a try. I scanned the reviews before downloading so knew it would be different than their adventure escape games, but wanted to go into it without prejudice so didn't research any further. The game is a storytelling game where you make choices about what questions/responses to select and which characters to interrogate. Personally, this is not my favorite type of gameplay, but if you are someone that like that, this one is very well done. The aesthetics were nice, and the key system was fairly balanced. They replenish quickly enough that free players won't feel frustrated and pay players won't have to spend a fortune. Overall, well executed.
Excellent!!
by dome head 1114 on 2020/04/17 15:23
I’ve played the majority of these games and they are the best!! Thanks!
SUPPORT THIS DEVELOPER
by flora🌺🌱 on 2020/04/16 04:27
Been a fan for a while, and while I was wary of their dive into visual novels, Haiku Games did not disappoint. Interesting story, beautiful art, and its FREE, which is a huge deal when it comes to apps of a similar nature. Play the game, spend some money if you can, and support this dev!
Love
by Jrhxjsbxinsixhwk on 2020/04/13 19:33
I love haiku games and I really like this game even though it’s different from their usual type. Keep up the good work 👍
Addicting!!
by fhilliard90 on 2020/04/12 21:19
I am in love with the Solve It series. Great characters, mystery, and story line!! I need Solve It 4 ASAP!! Haiku delivers as always.
Loved it!
by iNewsjunkie on 2020/04/12 13:39
Such a great game!!!
Really good mystery game
by LazerLazerLazer on 2020/04/03 22:20
Just what I was looking for—a cool mystery story without trashy romance. This even has devices specific to the genre, e.g., clues you investigate with specific NPCs. There’s bonus content and other pay-to-play features, but the game is fun and playable without them. Highly recommended.
Freaking Awesome!!!!
by Ajsweetheart on 2020/03/30 05:36
This game was amazing. Best one thus far !!!
Haiku Different
by DelleeComeOn on 2020/03/14 04:06
I love Haiku's escape games, so wasn't sure what to expect with this new visual novel format. I will admit, it was pretty enjoyable and the story was just as well-done as all of their other ones. There is always some mystery going on, but in this one you are the investigator. There are no puzzles to solve, just options of what questions to ask and who to question. Nothing really that difficult, but it was interesting to see what would happen depending on what you did. Something kinda irritating though, is the developers seemed a bit hung up on sexual encounters. Like, if it was part of the story that was fine, but to keep bringing it up for the character you are playing as, was kinda weird. I would recommend this game, but not with that as part of it. Sorry.
Great game!
by Peters-Sweetie on 2020/03/13 07:39
I just wish I had taken more risks though I don’t know if that would have hindered me in the end. And ended with Logan instead of Ashford. :/
Love Haiku games
by Coll2828 on 2020/02/28 17:09
Love the adventure games and now I’m a fan of the novels. I really like their style. Looking forward to new releases.
The game has a lot of bugs
by Amenze29 on 2020/02/11 00:28
I went from having 5 keys to 2 keys to none after opening and closing the app to go to another app. They should fix that glitch.
New idea
by Meek of on 2020/02/04 21:23
I like that’s there’s a new type of game available, this is very addictive. Nice job.
Not good
by CJM0407 on 2020/02/03 19:00
I really enjoyed all of their other games, but this was not like the others. In addition, there’s no way to play more than 10 minutes unless you purchase additional keys. There should be an option to watch ads to be able to continue playing. It’s unfortunate that they haven’t released any new adventure escapes.
Thrilling
by Smadms on 2020/02/03 08:04
It was kind of slow at first and I thought it was going to be boring, but overall it was very exciting
Interesting
by ClassyLadyD on 2020/02/03 01:20
I like this game however it was too short and should have more cases.
Better than I thought.
by Potato_AppleSauce on 2020/02/01 13:36
I’ve downloaded a lot of games like this that were terrible. I downloaded this expecting the same thing but it is really amazing. It has suspense and real world personalities. This game has a little of everything and I really loved it. I 100% recommend it to everyone.
I ❤️❤️❤️❤️💜💙💜❤️💙 this game!!!!!
by xoxo BTS life on 2020/01/25 14:33
All I could say is this games is awesome.i love the choices.the only problem is we need more money 💰.overall, this game is genius hope you can make other games because all ur games are lovely.have a nice day
Love that I can be gay af in this game
by luna hatter on 2020/01/23 16:45
DEFINITELY NOT For kids lol But amazing details and game!!!! Haiku does it again!!!
Issue

App Keeps Crashing Upon Opening It
Not as good as escape games
by Geophany on 2020/01/20 19:32
I really enjoy Haiku games but this is multiple choice, not much to do. I’m waiting for new escape episodes!
Awesome
by Criticallysue on 2020/01/09 20:22
Awesome game, it is very hooking. Although I don’t think there is a second story or w.e which I am sad about :( but it is an awesome game
Better than most investigative games
by jungleoflov3 on 2020/01/06 02:57
Overall not too bad. I enjoyed getting to question witnesses. Working as a PI. It’s not a game within a game like others. My only complaint would be energy. I think we should get more than 5.
Fun
by Buffster44 on 2019/12/26 22:21
Not your usual haiku game but definitely fun. Have to wait for keys to unlock clues but refills in an hour. Lots of reading and decision making. Looking forward to another one but their escapes are still better 😍
Not what expected
by Parton mom on 2019/12/14 06:14
I love the “escape “ games you put out. This game is good in its own right but not exactly what I expected. There are no puzzles. This is more like the old “ choose your own adventure” books I read as a kid.
Pay to Play
by EleniSS on 2019/12/12 01:54
You have to purchase ‘keys’ to move forward in the game. Just charge an amount to buy the game instead of making players buy stuff to play.
Solve it
by Bassin' bob on 2019/11/28 20:36
Good game I really enjoyed it
Not bad
by sflgames on 2019/11/20 13:20
Would like a few more codes and puzzles to crack but interesting and plots moves along nicely.
Amazing
by Fayevulou$ on 2019/11/18 05:38
I’ve always played Haiku games with android and I just got a new iPad and thought I really want some investigation type of games, solving mysteries, and for days I kept trying different games and I was never satisfied until I remembered Haiku games and found this! This is the first game I actually finished cos I was kept interested! It kept me curious and wanting to play more and each decisions made sense and the graphics, of course, always phenomenal. I will definitely recommend this to my friends. I don’t know why the App Store doesn’t have this as recommended or top rated games cos I’m sure each and every one who downloaded any Haiku games loved it!
WHERES THE REST
by Eavie316 on 2019/11/07 19:52
Hi I loved it. It was just like cause of death. I care more about following the same characters through different cases. Chapters whatever. I would have liked for this to have continued on...and on...
Great game!
by JessLynn023 on 2019/11/03 19:58
I give this 5 stars because I’ve never played anything like it. I really got into this game, and was hoping there was more than just the one time play. If there was more to the story and it didn’t just end the way it did, that would be great! Overall, I loved the experience. Like I keep saying, I wish there was more to it! Haha 😁
New theme, ew!
by trash thats you on 2019/10/30 21:26
Honestly when I downloaded the game I was interested by how it was setup. When I continued to play the game I could only press on the buttons to just say stuff. When I download this games I want to actually solve the cases not just waste coins or keys on this.
Love it
by AnginNC on 2019/10/26 05:44
Was sad it didn’t continue. Hope to see more just like this . Great job
Awesome
by Belle2013bella on 2019/10/20 19:33
Great game I highly recommended this game
Loved this even more than the other Haiku games
by Karina11111q on 2019/10/18 18:10
Love being able to talk to people and you have choose the right people and evidence. Should make it less black and white so depending on what you do, different things happen.
Amazing
by kimberlyphung on 2019/10/13 00:55
Very excited game which I think help me to train my memory. Definitely recommend!!
Awesome!
by conscslght on 2019/10/13 00:52
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome playing experience! I will be recommending this to all my friends. Good story line, I couldn’t predict where the story was going and I feel like I could play it thru a second time and have a different experience. 😎
Hard to compare
by Lwellert on 2019/10/07 04:15
If you like this kind of game (like Chapters or Episode), this is a good one. There's some replay value and it's an excellent storyline. I believe Haiku is better at the Adventure Escape games, but that's also my preferred genre. This is a good game though. I had to see it through to see how it ended.
Just ok
by dchase224 on 2019/10/06 20:31
I really prefer the escape room style games that you guys make. This was ok but not really what I’m into.
Liked it
by Jude1964 on 2019/09/28 12:48
Def diff from usual mystery games. Make more like these? 😀
Got pulled in
by Different Destination everyDay on 2019/09/26 14:36
Got pulled into the story and spent some coin because I couldn't wait for the keys to populate. Nice change for a game, and enjoyed that the sleuth could make choices to have or not to have romance, with either gender characters. I see a hint about some extended gameplay in another review, so I may run through it again to see if I can get more sleuthing points. Really like that you have great female leads in many of your games. I'm not a fan of the key system, I would rather pay a couple bucks up front. You have a pretty solid following, and some great games. Having to either pay or wait, on keys, to be able to play is a frustrating model of gameplay, and I avoid developers that use it. It is a bit better on the other style of games where a key unlocks a chapter, I just hate to see you go this route.
Great stuff!
by Oleanderbush on 2019/09/25 15:33
I was expecting kind of a boring game like a kids pick your ending book (which can actually be interesting) but I found that I can get in as much trouble in this game as in any adventure escape game. So 5 stars for holding my interest. I do make the choices that make my character sound nice though, haven’t opted for being mean yet...
Fun
by Sparkles111111 on 2019/09/24 23:14
LOVED this! Unlike other choose your paths I have tried you make it to the end without ‘dying’ and having to start over. Very fun mystery to solve.
Meh.
by Lorourke11 on 2019/09/22 02:04
I love the adventure escape games Haiku puts out, but this is nothing like those. This is simply just a story and you choose a character's responses. I prefer solving actual puzzles. I probably won't finish the game.
Love this game !
by Taleesha Lashae on 2019/09/22 01:40
I’ve been waiting on you guys to put out a new game and i absolutely loved this ! It’s so fun solving mysteries. Can’t wait for what you to put out more !
Another Great Game by Haiku
by Jjj246 on 2019/07/27 05:01
I’ve played all the Adventure Escape games, and I’ve been looking forwards to playing Solve It from the moment I heard about it. I finished the game, and I liked it even more than I expected! Solve It is different from Adventure Escape because there are not puzzles or mini games; instead, the mystery unfolds through observation and conversations with other characters. I understand why it is called a virtual novel. At first, I wondered whether this would be like other story apps that require money for all important or interesting choices, but this was not the case. Very few choices required coins, and even though I chose not to spend coins at all, I never felt like I was missing a necessary or important part of the story. Story apps by other creators often require a very long wait to unlock a short part of the story, and I have deleted apps for that reason; however, I thought that the waiting time for keys in this game was very reasonable. I also like how there is the option to replay the story and make different choices. Mystery lovers, like myself, will enjoy this app, and I really hope the developers make another Solve It app in the future, and I am excited to download whatever Haiku creates next. Great job creating this awesome app!
Fun Novel.
by B00K33P3R on 2020/06/19 05:59
I have played and enjoyed many of the Haiku games (all of which were the puzzle oriented one). Therefore, this series I was unsure of since it wasn’t like their normal game style. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the novels were made. I have looked at other reviews that comment on the negative aspects of these kinds of games: having to purchase coins, waiting for keys to unlock the next section, picking a word choice and then regretting it instantly. These are all certainly irritating side affects of visual novels. However, Haiku games allows the player to work around said annoyances. To avoid spending excessively with real money, you can play through the game multiple times and continue to reap coins to buy that extra scene. Wait time is half an hour, which to be fair isn’t a very long time. I found it rather the perfect time increment to go finish something else before returning to the game. Over all, this game was and still is a very fun game to play through because I didn’t have to worry about missing out something (a common occurrence with other visual novels).
Amazing game. PLEASE MAKE MORE IN THIS STYLE!
by Breekerz on 2019/08/13 18:49
So normally I never download & play games on my phone because they’re usually wack, BUT NOT THIS GAME. I was hooked right away. I love how it is setup, great story line & twists, maybe a few more options & different outcomes per character in the ending but even without its still a above average game & addicting. I love how the style is on how to navigate the game - super simple & honestly left me wanting to play more, please either add more to this series in the app & let it continue on after you complete one or create a new app for each storyline but my advice is just continue it on one after another. Either make them different or include people from the previous one to make it a even more interesting storyline 😱 Would rate it 10 stars if i could!! So i had to review. Oh & thank you for making the new lives timer fast & barely any ads & for it being FREE & love how you can easily earn coins by being a good detective 😏
Different... but good
by Crystalpenguin12 on 2019/08/28 19:14
I really like all of Haiku’s games and was curious to see this new “visual novel” they were putting out. Honestly, it’s pretty good. If you’re expecting anything like the others, you’ll be disappointed because there are ZERO elements of collecting items and cracking codes through mini games. I would compare this game to Episode. It relies solely on the player’s choices, but does a good job of keeping the plot moving. If you’re into this kind of game, you’ll love Solve It! Couple minor issues: sometimes I would earn a few keys only to open the game and find out I had none. It would also glitch sometimes and speed through conversations or not let me pick buttons at all, though that may have been a problem just on my phone. My only issue with the plot line itself is that it was a little too suggestive at some points, with at least one cuss word thrown in. Would have been much better without that. Otherwise, good story and fun game! Side note: when interviewing that girl for Herschel’s alibi, Logan says Matthew instead of Herschel.
Got pulled in
by Different Destination everyDay on 2019/09/26 14:36
Got pulled into the story and spent some coin because I couldn't wait for the keys to populate. Nice change for a game, and enjoyed that the sleuth could make choices to have or not to have romance, with either gender characters. I see a hint about some extended gameplay in another review, so I may run through it again to see if I can get more sleuthing points. Really like that you have great female leads in many of your games. I'm not a fan of the key system, I would rather pay a couple bucks up front. You have a pretty solid following, and some great games. Having to either pay or wait, on keys, to be able to play is a frustrating model of gameplay, and I avoid developers that use it. It is a bit better on the other style of games where a key unlocks a chapter, I just hate to see you go this route.
What a wonderful game
by Lauren_iz_2_bored on 2019/07/08 02:25
I have played (I believe) all of the Haikus games. I LOVE their adventure escape games. I’ve spent hours trying to solve them, and enjoying the dialogue, the puzzles, and the suspense inducing outcome. They’re always satisfying! I was a little weary about Solve it when I saw that it was a different format than Haikus usual games, but as I just completed the game, I have to say that I’m absolutely thrilled this game exists. It was such a beautiful game, with the art and dialogue, and introduces a different perspective than the adventure escape games. While I definitely still love the adventure escape games, and try to patiently wait for the next game to come out, I would be ECSTATIC if Haiku Games came out with another game like Solve it. 10/10 would recommend it. Keep up the amazing work Haiku!
Great Start: addictive and fun!
by Momma bird7 on 2019/08/12 23:58
I know I played a beta version, but I really enjoyed this game. The characters and story were really great and I can’t wait to play the full version of this! The only 2 things I would tweak are: 1. I felt like I could never get enough points (sleuth dollars?) before the chance to use ALL of them came up. Either make points easier to obtain, rewards greater, or the option to use them less. 80 each time is a little much when you get 2-4 per interaction. 2. Make sure there is no way to do things out of order. There were a few times when I used a clue and the interaction told me information I already got elsewhere or led me to talk to someone I already had. Other than those two minor things, I liked it. In fact, I’m going to play it again so I can have enough points to explore options I couldn’t the first time!
Not an “escape” game
by ,\\'//<//?/_// //3/-\\//_ _\\ on 2019/08/22 06:19
This is a very different game than the normal Haiku room escape games, just so you know, and I’m am saying that this is a bad game, it’s a great game. For what it is, a visual novel, the game is fun, and a good way to kill 15 minutes here and there. As long as you realize this is a different type of game than all the other Haiku games. I’ve played all of those, or all that are on the App Store. Most visual novels, for me, are boring, this was an entertaining visual novel, with a lot of decisions that effect the ending/progress of the story. Altogether a great game for being the first of its kind from this company, also try out there escape games there all amazing, and basically free if you want them to be. Only reason I gave 4 stars is it costs too many coins to play certain extra “deluxe chapters”, or you don’t get enough coins for good decisions, the balance is off just a bit.
Fun Interactive Story
by RRdz1 on 2020/06/23 23:23
I have tried a couple of interactive story apps, and this is by far my favorite. I like that the choices are interesting and we do not need to spend money on diamonds for a chance at a better choice to improve the story. This story is already engaging and fun. I love the characters and the fact that the keys replenish within a few minutes. Thank you so much for this game, please, please, make more engaging stories like this one and do not go the same route as the other interactive stories where you give up because the ridiculous amount of diamonds they charge for the choice and then they expect you to buy diamonds on top of it. You did it perfectly and I love your game!
Haiku Different
by DelleeComeOn on 2020/03/14 04:06
I love Haiku&#39;s escape games, so wasn&#39;t sure what to expect with this new visual novel format. I will admit, it was pretty enjoyable and the story was just as well-done as all of their other ones. There is always some mystery going on, but in this one you are the investigator. There are no puzzles to solve, just options of what questions to ask and who to question. Nothing really that difficult, but it was interesting to see what would happen depending on what you did. Something kinda irritating though, is the developers seemed a bit hung up on sexual encounters. Like, if it was part of the story that was fine, but to keep bringing it up for the character you are playing as, was kinda weird. I would recommend this game, but not with that as part of it. Sorry.
Super Good!!!!!
by Blue Shesse on 2019/08/15 21:18
I’ve played all of the Haiku Games so far and this one is definitely my favorite in terms of the storyline. I enjoyed the different style of this game as much as the others. I used to play the games alone, but now a ton of my friends enjoy these games too and we all can’t wait for the next one to play together. This company deserves so much more credit than it has received. There is not a better escape game on the market. Can’t wait for the next game!!!
Interesting new game
by ovcghxhkbff on 2019/08/17 00:04
Hi! I LOVE ALL your adventure escape games and cannot wait for the next one to come out- please hurry!!! At first I was disappointed because I thought this was going to be like the other AE games that I love. Then I found an appreciation for it bc it’s very different. However a few tweaks- there’s not many coins awarded when it’s 80 to cash in...It should be possible to do every interaction if you answer everything perfectly (let’s call it “expert”), and there’s no way you earn enough coins to do that. On that note, I thought there’d be a juicy story when I did 80 coins to here his and Cindy’s story &amp; it was disappointing- add more steam to it please!!! Anyways this was different &amp; enjoyable but please keep making more of the original games with Kate!
Solve It but be prepared to wait forever.
by stuntbush on 2019/07/31 18:47
I much prefer the puzzles and style of the adventure games. The key system is annoying enough in those games but atleast you get some solid play time in. The novel route was interesting enough but the key system ruins the mojo. When playing a game of this sort you want to keep a flow. Using a key for 3 minutes of dialogue is ridiculous. The format ruins the game. Break it into chapters. A key should give you more play. I just simply think this key system barely works for the adventure games but ruins this game. I have given you three stars solely to try and be supportive to your past work. It really doesn’t rise to the level of past games. I recommend if you skip this entry and play Trapmaker instead.
Fresh
by 123$!;&8&'s on 2019/07/15 23:46
I’ve played all the adventure escape games much like most reviews here and this new format was quite refreshing! It was great to switch it up and date I say I love solve it just as much it even more than adventure escape. Don’t get me wrong, I’m waiting for more adventure escape but now I want more Solve it! There’s so many scenarios and you can replay it and try different options to see what events will play out. I’ll keep an eye for more like from Haiku!
Great idea that I’m sure will get better.
by JMoss262 on 2019/08/26 10:43
I’ve played all of the Haiku escape games and mysteries and have loved them! My favorite is solving puzzles and taking in the characters and stories ~ this one was different and interesting, but I missed the puzzle aspect and the interactive scenes. It felt a little forced at times and I never did understand the stealth points. I’d have liked more freedom to explore the scenes vs just relying on conversations. Characters were fine, though it looks like I would have needed to spend all of my sleuth (?) to get to anything more *interesting* about them.
Suspenseful
by AC4147369933 on 2019/08/26 19:54
Super good story and game design. The characters are all rounded out with their own back story. The game plays like a real detective story where you have to consider the clues and take initiative to follow leads, question suspects and piece it together. The action sequences really surprised me and I felt the real threat and pressure that if I made the wrong choice my character could die. I couldn&#39;t stop thinking about it in between playing it. Like a modern Raymond Chandler PI game. Please make more!
Impressive
by retired gamer girl on 2019/07/09 07:15
I really enjoy playing haiku games because they are free and there’s no trial that I have to pay for. This specific haiku game is especially my favorite because of how interactive it was (I know the title says “interactive game” but still), even though there were a few times were you had a chance to use your coins to make a decision it wasn&#39;t so major were it would make or break your decision it was just for extra fun.
Love it!
by Altaircsus on 2020/06/27 22:39
I downloaded this game from another one of the games, and I loved it! The extra little parts of the stories were fun. All of it reminded me of the old “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, but you couldn’t mess up the case (as far as I saw). My only concern was sometimes having to restart a cheaper if my phone locked or timed out...not completely annoying, but could be confusing sometimes
Very fun but...
by inconvenient left hander on 2020/07/29 20:23
I really enjoy all their games. Not a bad one. They’re similar enough that the game play is easy to pick up but different enough to make them unique. The only thing I don’t like is how you have to use the right arrow to flip through text. I’m left handed so my hand is constantly crossing the screen. It’s a small thing but very annoying. A lot of other games you can touch anyway which is very left hand friendly. Just something I wish was changed
Great!
by Scrambleaholic on 2019/08/24 18:28
I really love Haiku Games in general, so I was excited to try this game out after playing many of the mystery escape games. This took some getting used to at first, having to wait for keys wasn’t my favorite feature. But overall I really enjoyed the storyline and format of it! Getting to choose my responses to almost every situation kept me interested, and it was fun seeing the consequences of each choice. I would definitely play this game again with another new mystery to solve if I could!
#1 go to for mystery case solving games.
by Ken.ology on 2020/05/21 04:44
All of their story lines are original and even intense enough to keep coming back for more! Out of all the game apps I’ve tried this one by far has the best puzzles as well and u don’t have to wait too long for keys and perks are good without having to pay too much for diamonds and stuff. I love it! I love them ! Just download and play already!!!
Unique
by PScott52 on 2019/08/31 13:34
I thought it would be more like the Adventure games, but it was still pretty cool. I would have liked it to have a little more real sleuthing action. There was some but it also felt a little like I couldn’t lose, just make choices. BUT maybe I just did well? Either way, I did enjoy myself and I love all the games that the company makes. I like them so much that I wait a little bit in hopes of forgetting it and play them again! I could go through 1-2 a week!
Great game!
by JessLynn023 on 2019/11/03 19:58
I give this 5 stars because I’ve never played anything like it. I really got into this game, and was hoping there was more than just the one time play. If there was more to the story and it didn’t just end the way it did, that would be great! Overall, I loved the experience. Like I keep saying, I wish there was more to it! Haha 😁
My opinion on this first for y’all
by MrsAlyyB630 on 2019/07/26 19:16
I know this is the first time y’all are trying this type of game, and I want to say I really liked it. Just with these types of games, I like that you can customize your character, we didn’t get that with this one, but the story line, characters and options were great. I would give us more options to choose from, and more customization. Other then that, great job on this game guys!
A Game of Choices
by Reviewer296446 on 2020/04/18 04:12
I&#39;ve played all the other Haiku games and decided to give this one a try. I scanned the reviews before downloading so knew it would be different than their adventure escape games, but wanted to go into it without prejudice so didn&#39;t research any further. The game is a storytelling game where you make choices about what questions/responses to select and which characters to interrogate. Personally, this is not my favorite type of gameplay, but if you are someone that like that, this one is very well done. The aesthetics were nice, and the key system was fairly balanced. They replenish quickly enough that free players won&#39;t feel frustrated and pay players won&#39;t have to spend a fortune. Overall, well executed.
Hated it
by Kmoc1972 on 2019/08/30 22:00
Sorry haiku I usually love your games. But this game was super boring. I didn’t even finish it. I’m bummed that you put this game out before finishing the ones that have said “coming soon” forever. I’ve played every single one of you masterpieces and I don’t mind different but this game is a dud. Nothing to do but read. No puzzles to solve. Nothing. If this is what I wanted I’d get a book. Sorry for the bad review. I gave 2 stars but only because I love all your other games. Please finish the other games so I can get back to what I love in Haiku!!!
Great game
by Iluvfrgz on 2019/07/13 10:13
I absolutely love Haiku games!!! I’ve played every one!!! This game was definitely one of my top 5. I liked that it was different from their other games. Being able to interact and choose responses made it really interesting. I look forward to seeing more games like this!!! Hopefully we will get some new Adventure games as well!!!!!
Great stuff!
by Oleanderbush on 2019/09/25 15:33
I was expecting kind of a boring game like a kids pick your ending book (which can actually be interesting) but I found that I can get in as much trouble in this game as in any adventure escape game. So 5 stars for holding my interest. I do make the choices that make my character sound nice though, haven’t opted for being mean yet...
Great game!
by Lilerz2224 on 2019/07/14 02:47
I love haiku games. I’ve played every single one. This one was very different but I enjoyed it. It never dragged on and it always kept me guessing. It was really well written and well designed. It seems like all the bugs were fixed (or at least they didn’t happen to me). Thanks for the great games and I can’t wait for more to come!
Great
by BelleViolet99 on 2019/07/03 02:54
I absolutely love Haiku Games! I was curious with their new display and format in Death of a CEO and a bit skeptical, as I’ve played nearly all Adventure Escape games so far. But I wanted to play the game completely through and give it a chance. It was awesome! While I do love all the puzzles in Adventure Escape, this game gave a fresh new spin. Adventure Escape will always be my favorite though. Can’t wait to see what else Haiku Games comes up with :D
The best game yet!
by punkrocksupernova on 2019/08/11 14:35
I’ve played every single game by this developer and this is HANDS-DOWN my favorite! I love the ‘choose your own ending’ style and feel that the turn around time for waiting on keys was acceptable (about 20 minutes). Thank you for making such a great game and please make more with these characters in the future!!!!!!!
Better than I thought.
by Potato_AppleSauce on 2020/02/01 13:36
I’ve downloaded a lot of games like this that were terrible. I downloaded this expecting the same thing but it is really amazing. It has suspense and real world personalities. This game has a little of everything and I really loved it. I 100% recommend it to everyone.
Sooo fun!
by BLMSALOT on 2020/07/16 14:29
This is A-MA-ZING! If you are reading this, trust me, you will have no regrets with this game! There is nothing I will suggest, it&#39;s perfect, and so fun. I just wish one thing, actually... maybe the romances could be free, but have a little consequence instead of costing money? It&#39;s just, you barely get any money and I really would like to have the romance with Logan.
New game and loving it!
by flagcomm1 on 2020/08/31 02:37
I was curious to play this game as other reviewers indicated there were no puzzles to play. That was a major selling point for me. I just finished playing and it was fun. Now I want to go back and see if I can change things up with other responses.
Something New
by Kat.Fish.Swim on 2020/06/12 01:00
I was looking for a detective game. This game caught my attention because I’m an avid reader. It combines reading and investigating. It kept my interest and I could leave and come back to the game later. My only complaint is the one scene at the cafe. It was a bit weak. It seemed like it was a rush to tie up loose ends. Overall this was a cool diversion. I look forward to more of episodes.
Like Escape better
by Kt41B5 on 2019/07/18 14:05
I enjoy playing Haiku games! They are my absolute favorites!! This game was okay, but I like solving puzzles much better. This game basically led to the conclusion with the limited choices. They were not always my choice. Would be interesting to see where my choices led. All in all, you are great game creators and I applaud your efforts!! Thank you! Can barely wait for more!!
Fun
by COgurl on 2019/09/05 15:47
I have enjoyed all of the Haiku games. I love that I am in charge of the story based off of my choices. Also, I like that I am not forced into spending money. You definitely can buy keys to make some more interesting choices, but it is not mandatory. I hope that doesn’t change because I will continue to get these games as they come out.
Different than the others
by Regular Wish Customer on 2019/08/28 23:03
This game was different than their other games, and it’s kind of disappointing. This one was kind of boring. This game is conversation only, you have the option of what question you want to ask and what response you reply with, but that’s it. Unlike their other games, there are no games to play, no clues to find. This game was done well, but it’s less of a game, more of a who done it via conversations.
LOVEDDD THE FORMAT!!
by qqqwwibsfajgdjdndbd on 2019/08/19 22:16
Don’t get me wrong I love all the other Haiku games, but this new format even more entertaining. I love how u were allowed to be the detective and interview suspects to try and solve the case. I can’t wait to play more more Haiku games and hope there will be more games similar to this one in the near future!
Fun!
by Angelette52 on 2019/08/08 15:52
Good game! Agree with others in allowing to customize characters. Also allowing an early solve feature and other endings in case you choose incorrectly. And then allowing to replay to guess correctly again. Good job! I enjoyed it! Please make more 😊
Different and fun, but.....
by VTfantastic on 2019/07/21 15:42
I wish there was a “go back” feature that you can use once or twice. I accidentally clicked the wrong option once and then again realized as I clicked that chose incorrectly. Just wonder how the game would be different but don’t want to wait for more keys to play again.
Great game!
by Vetiver Apothecary on 2020/05/27 16:22
I’ve downloaded and played all three of these now and LOVE THEM. They’re fun story lines with good twists and turns. Appreciate that they’re not dependent on coins, and really like the code-cracking moments. Add more cool puzzles into the storylines and make a 4th story please :) thanks for making this available for free!
Loved this even more than the other Haiku games
by Karina11111q on 2019/10/18 18:10
Love being able to talk to people and you have choose the right people and evidence. Should make it less black and white so depending on what you do, different things happen.
Mine won’t work
by Ndjdjjdhhhhh on 2019/07/04 23:27
I have a newer iPhone... after a few minutes the game shuts out and I’m back to my main phone page.... when I click on it in the trap keeper package, it just says coming soon... I downloaded latest version
Really good mystery game
by LazerLazerLazer on 2020/04/03 22:20
Just what I was looking for—a cool mystery story without trashy romance. This even has devices specific to the genre, e.g., clues you investigate with specific NPCs. There’s bonus content and other pay-to-play features, but the game is fun and playable without them. Highly recommended.
Story telling
by trou6637/5 on 2019/08/01 21:49
(English is not my first languages) The story in the game kept you on your toes during the whole game it kept giving you subtle hints towards the killer and gave you many options that affected the gameplay overall a very well done game
Choose Your Own Adventure Detective Story Game
by Carnerds on 2019/07/12 13:00
This was a smart, fun, interactive game. I had fun looking for answers but having some choice in the outcome. Love all Haiku games...this one was a pleasant surprise as it was different...more word-based but still engaging. I’m happy to offer my services as an initial game tester. 😉
SUPPORT THIS DEVELOPER
by flora🌺🌱 on 2020/04/16 04:27
Been a fan for a while, and while I was wary of their dive into visual novels, Haiku Games did not disappoint. Interesting story, beautiful art, and its FREE, which is a huge deal when it comes to apps of a similar nature. Play the game, spend some money if you can, and support this dev!
Best Game I’ve played!
by hanniemarie123 on 2020/05/01 05:05
I LOVE this game! Love the crime, the in depth choice making and the blips of romance. I was devastated to see how short it was though! I thought I might get a second case but it was only one case. Are more cases coming?? I’d love to see the story continue.

Would suggest playing
by theloganator01 on 2020/10/26 19:49
Wasn’t sure how this game would play out, but was pleasantly surprised at how fun it was. Wish it was longer though.
Solve it
by clock70 on 2020/10/21 06:14
Little different then their other games. It passes time but it pulls you in to find out who done it
Nicely done
by qweryvjdihj on 2020/10/18 13:51
I rather enjoyed it, it puts you in the story and gives you options on what you might want. I’m downloading 2 &amp; 3 now
Great game!
by Juicyto22 on 2020/10/15 19:41
I have only played 1 of these games and it was great! Storyline good, graphics pretty good. Overall a great game! I will be downloading the others. Peace and love everyone
Great Game
by ButterflyWarriorKJ on 2020/10/09 04:08
I absolutely loved this game, but do think we should receive more then 5 keys at a time or at least allow people to watch videos for coins and keys, but overall, you gained a new fan! On to the next one 🥰
Great game
by Puzzle2me on 2020/10/01 22:20
Cannot wait to replay with different choices. Love the way the game operates and it is fun.
Fun, Entertaining Game

I really enjoyed this. It was fun, entertaining and I love games that let me choose the way I play. Please keep up the great work!
Good game

Love the game!!!!!’ I hope the come out with more cases so can play more. Story line really keeps you interested and engaged.. To the make of game—- PLEASE PLEASE MAKE MORE CASES!!!!!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
New game and loving it!
by flagcomm1 on 2020/08/31 02:37
I was curious to play this game as other reviewers indicated there were no puzzles to play. That was a major selling point for me. I just finished playing and it was fun. Now I want to go back and see if I can change things up with other responses.
Good storyline but
by -_- terrible on 2020/08/24 22:54
I don’t like how you have limited keys and have to wait. You should be able to just go straight through.
Game
by Franz18-7 on 2020/08/23 23:54
Great game and loved playing it. Can’t wait for the next one
Great Game!
by Katie-stiles on 2020/08/19 23:33
I thought this game was really fun! I really like all the games by Haiku!
It’s a cool game
by creativeladyjerz on 2020/08/07 12:13
I like it just wish there were more keys at once Just as you get into it the keys are gone
Why didn’t I find this game sooner?
by tkasthetics on 2020/08/04 06:57
It’s worth dơnloading!!
Solve it 1

Lesbian Sex ftw
by xanphillee on 2020/07/30 05:50
This game kinda sexy for real, I like it 😁
Very fun but...
by inconvenient left hander on 2020/07/29 20:23
I really enjoy all their games. Not a bad one. They’re similar enough that the game play is easy to pick up but different enough to make them unique. The only thing I don’t like is how you have to use the right arrow to flip through text. I’m left handed so my hand is constantly crossing the screen. It’s a small thing but very annoying. A lot of other games you can touch anyway which is very left hand friendly. Just something I wish was changed
Fun game
by RhonVD on 2020/07/21 22:48
I enjoyed the interactive aspect of this game.
Great mystery
by Shelly81 on 2020/07/18 04:51
I really liked how you had the choices.
Great murder mystery game!
by Coley Star on 2020/07/17 12:46
I try my best to find good murder mystery games but, they always turn out to be lame. This one was far by the best, plus romance! Amazing! Haiku keep making good games.
Sooo fun!
by BLMSALOT on 2020/07/16 14:29
This is A-MA-ZING! If you are reading this, trust me, you will have no regrets with this game! There is nothing I will suggest, it&#39;s perfect, and so fun. I just wish one thing, actually... maybe the romances could be free, but have a little consequence instead of costing money? It&#39;s just, you barely get any money and I really would like to have the romance with Logan.
Help?
by help!!stop! on 2020/07/15 00:09
I loved this game! Sadly, However, I am supposed to talk to Cindy about Herchels girlfriend, but the clue didn’t show up, so I unfortunately can’t. I wish there was a way to reset the game, but I can’t do that either. I’m really stuck. Help?
Enjoyable
by Specificnamethatisnottaken on 2020/07/14 19:37
Entertaining
Fun and witty
by OHfit4 on 2020/07/13 02:02
Love the conversations and storyline! Fun to play, and great to play whether you have a few minutes or if you have an hour.
Escape asylum
by smitty22cop on 2020/07/11 08:38
So far it seems to be fun finding hints and solving puzzles!
Great novel and a fun mystery
by Ink_ninja on 2020/07/05 16:16
I really enjoyed this game. The story was good and the mystery was fun to solve. I’ll definitely be playing the next chapter.
Gets steamy!
by Hgoddard on 2020/07/03 02:01
Seriously, keep developing these! I have downloaded and completed these escape/puzzle games at least once each. Love love love! They’re challenging enough to keep you interested.
Love it!
by Altaircsus on 2020/06/27 22:39
I downloaded this game from another one of the games, and I loved it! The extra little parts of the stories were fun. All of it reminded me of the old “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, but you couldn’t mess up the case (as far as I saw). My only concern was sometimes having to restart a cheaper if my phone locked or timed out...not completely annoying, but could be confusing sometimes
Really fun gameplay, boring ending
by Superkate135 on 2020/06/25 13:44
It was really fun but the ending was underwhelming. Definitely worth playing though!
Fun Interactive Story
by RRdz1 on 2020/06/23 23:23
I have tried a couple of interactive story apps, and this is by far my favorite. I like that the choices are interesting and we do not need to spend money on diamonds for a chance at a better choice to improve the story. This story is already engaging and fun. I love the characters and the fact that the keys replenish within a few minutes. Thank you so much for this game, please, please, make more engaging stories like this one and do not go the same route as the other interactive stories where you give up because the ridiculous amount of diamonds they charge for the choice and then they expect you to buy diamonds on top of it. You did it perfectly and I love your game!
Fun Novel.
by B00K33P3R on 2020/06/19 05:59
I have played and enjoyed many of the Haiku games (all of which were the puzzle oriented one). Therefore, this series I was unsure of since it wasn’t like their normal game style. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the novels were made. I have looked at other reviews that comment on the negative aspects of these kinds of games: having to purchase coins, waiting for keys to unlock the next section, picking a word choice and then regretting it instantly. These are all certainly irritating side affects of visual novels. However, Haiku games allows the player to work around said annoyances. To avoid spending excessively with real money, you can play through the game multiple times and continue to reap coins to buy that extra scene. Wait time is half an hour, which to be fair isn’t a very long time. I found it rather the perfect time increment to go finish something else before returning to the game. Over all, this game was and still is a very fun game to play through because I didn’t have to worry about missing out something (a common occurrence with other visual novels).
Amazing🤩🤩🤩
by Koala 870 on 2020/06/12 13:42
This game is incredible. The puzzles are challenging but still solve able. The story line is incredible. I have played all of the games and can’t wait for more to be released!
Something New
by Kat.Fish.Swim on 2020/06/12 01:00
I was looking for a detective game. This game caught my attention because I’m an avid reader. It combines reading and investigating. It kept my interest and I could leave and come back to the game later. My only complaint is the one scene at the cafe. It was a bit weak. It seemed like it was a rush to tie up loose ends. Overall this was a cool diversion. I look forward to more of episodes.
Haiku Games is Great!
by Phrasewheelluvr on 2020/06/07 15:58
I prefer their escape adventure games because they are more interactive but overall this is a great game as well!
So much fun
by nezus333 on 2020/06/04 01:05
The game was lots of fun. It gave you many options to choose from to move the story along. I am looking forward to play the next one.
Great!!

Great game!
by Vetiver Apothecary on 2020/05/27 16:22
I’ve downloaded and played all three of these now and LOVE THEM. They’re fun story lines with good twists and turns. Appreciate that they’re not dependent on coins, and really like the code-cracking moments. Add more cool puzzles into the storylines and make a 4th story please :) thanks for making this available for free!
Love Haiku Games
by 0277373 on 2020/05/27 06:03
As always Haiku games never fail to excite me! Fan since day 1 cant wait for more stories to come.
Interesting
by MrWhysper on 2020/05/26 21:06
One of the more interesting apps it’s been my pleasure to sample.
It is pretty good
by joksteer on 2020/05/24 22:10
My only complaint is waiting 25 minutes for another key, and then only being able to play for about 2 minutes. I don’t mind spending a little money on a game, but this feels like I am being forced to. Not a good feeling.
Good app designer!
by collegeboardisascam on 2020/05/22 07:54
I don’t normally write reviews, but I’ve played a bunch of Haiku games at this point. I like puzzle games and there’s a wide variety of options from them. Thanks to Haiku, it’s a thumbs up from me :)
#1 go to for mystery case solving games.
by Ken.ology on 2020/05/21 04:44
All of their story lines are original and even intense enough to keep coming back for more! Out of all the game apps I’ve tried this one by far has the best puzzles as well and u don’t have to wait too long for keys and perks are good without having to pay too much for diamonds and stuff. I love it! I love them ! Just download and play already!!!
Fun
by Fujihanna on 2020/05/19 14:12
Not much dexterity needed.
My favorite games ever
by LoveBug6738 on 2020/05/14 00:33
Haiku is a free gameplay adventure filled with magic and mystery. Murder and mayhem. Life and death choices. And I never get bored! So jump into the fun!
The review
by Agent SWAT X on 2020/05/11 12:24
It is the best game of a homicide game I have ever played and I played everything else except this one
Best Game I’ve played!
by hanniemarie123 on 2020/05/01 05:05
I LOVE this game! Love the crime, the in depth choice making and the blips of romance. I was devastated to see how short it was though! I thought I might get a second case but it was only one case. Are more cases coming?? I’d love to see the story continue.
Fun Game
by Lirpapril on 2020/04/30 14:49
I like the mystery. It wasn’t long enough but it was fun.
Clever Setting
by Soccer17hrabor on 2020/04/28 15:27
The clever storyline where everything is taking place in a fancy tower. I had no clue who the murder was until the very end. Props to Haiku!
PRICES
by F. Karim on 2020/04/26 22:39
I love the game but the fact that I have to wait 30 minutes for one key each is an issue. The user can either wait or purchase the keys but if that’s ok with you then go ahead.
Fun
by Becky 03 on 2020/04/24 19:48

A Game of Choices
by Reviewer296446 on 2020/04/18 04:12
I&#39;ve played all the other Haiku games and decided to give this one a try. I scanned the reviews before downloading so knew it would be different than their adventure escape games, but wanted to go into it without prejudice so didn&#39;t research any further. The game is a storytelling game where you make choices about what questions/responses to select and which characters to interrogate. Personally, this is not my favorite type of gameplay, but if you are someone that like that, this one is very well done. The aesthetics were nice, and the key system was fairly balanced. They replenish quickly enough that free players won&#39;t feel frustrated and pay players won&#39;t have to spend a fortune. Overall, well executed.
Excellent!!
by dome head 1114 on 2020/04/17 15:23
I’ve played the majority of these games and they are the best!! Thanks!
SUPPORT THIS DEVELOPER
by flora🌺🌱 on 2020/04/16 04:27
Been a fan for a while, and while I was wary of their dive into visual novels, Haiku Games did not disappoint. Interesting story, beautiful art, and its FREE, which is a huge deal when it comes to apps of a similar nature. Play the game, spend some money if you can, and support this dev!
Love
by Jrhxjsbxinsixhwk on 2020/04/13 19:33
I love haiku games and I really like this game even though it’s different from their usual type. Keep up the good work 👍
Addicting!!
by fhilliard90 on 2020/04/12 21:19
I am in love with the Solve It series. Great characters, mystery, and story line!! I need Solve It 4 ASAP!! Haiku delivers as always.
Loved it!
by iNewsjunkie on 2020/04/12 13:39
Such a great game!!!
Really good mystery game
by LazerLazerLazer on 2020/04/03 22:20
Just what I was looking for—a cool mystery story without trashy romance. This even has devices specific to the genre, e.g., clues you investigate with specific NPCs. There’s bonus content and other pay-to-play features, but the game is fun and playable without them. Highly recommended.
Freaking Awesome!!!!
by Ajsweetheart on 2020/03/30 05:36
This game was amazing. Best one thus far !!!
Haiku Different
by DelleeComeOn on 2020/03/14 04:06
I love Haiku&#39;s escape games, so wasn&#39;t sure what to expect with this new visual novel format. I will admit, it was pretty enjoyable and the story was just as well-done as all of their other ones. There is always some mystery going on, but in this one you are the investigator. There are no puzzles to solve, just options of what questions to ask and who to question. Nothing really that difficult, but it was interesting to see what would happen depending on what you did. Something kinda irritating though, is the developers seemed a bit hung up on sexual encounters. Like, if it was part of the story that was fine, but to keep bringing it up for the character you are playing as, was kinda weird. I would recommend this game, but not with that as part of it. Sorry.
Great game!
by Peters-Sweetie on 2020/03/13 07:39
I just wish I had taken more risks though I don’t know if that would have hindered me in the end. And ended with Logan instead of Ashford. :/
Love Haiku games
by Coll2828 on 2020/02/28 17:09
Love the adventure games and now I’m a fan of the novels. I really like their style. Looking forward to new releases.
The game has a lot of bugs
by Amenze29 on 2020/02/11 00:28
I went from having 5 keys to 2 keys to none after opening and closing the app to go to another app. They should fix that glitch.
New idea
by Meek of on 2020/02/04 21:23
I like that’s there’s a new type of game available, this is very addictive. Nice job.
Not good
by CJM0407 on 2020/02/03 19:00
I really enjoyed all of their other games, but this was not like the others. In addition, there’s no way to play more than 10 minutes unless you purchase additional keys. There should be an option to watch ads to be able to continue playing. It’s unfortunate that they haven’t released any new adventure escapes.
Thrilling
by Smadms on 2020/02/03 08:04
It was kind of slow at first and I thought it was going to be boring, but overall it was very exciting
Interesting
by ClassyLadyD on 2020/02/03 01:20
I like this game however it was too short and should have more cases.
Better than I thought.
by Potato_AppleSauce on 2020/02/01 13:36
I’ve downloaded a lot of games like this that were terrible. I downloaded this expecting the same thing but it is really amazing. It has suspense and real world personalities. This game has a little of everything and I really loved it. I 100% recommend it to everyone.
I ❤️❤️❤️❤️💜💙💜❤️💙 this game!!!!!
by xoxo BTS life on 2020/01/25 14:33
All I could say is this games is awesome.i love the choices.the only problem is we need more money 💰.overall, this game is genius hope you can make other games because all ur games are lovely.have a nice day
Love that I can be gay af in this game
by luna hatter on 2020/01/23 16:45
DEFINITELY NOT For kids lol But amazing details and game!!!! Haiku does it again!!!

App Keeps Crashing Upon Opening It
Not as good as escape games
by Geophany on 2020/01/20 19:32
I really enjoy Haiku games but this is multiple choice, not much to do. I’m waiting for new escape episodes!
Awesome
by Criticallysue on 2020/01/09 20:22
Awesome game, it is very hooking. Although I don’t think there is a second story or w.e which I am sad about :( but it is an awesome game
Better than most investigative games
by jungleoflov3 on 2020/01/06 02:57
Overall not too bad. I enjoyed getting to question witnesses. Working as a PI. It’s not a game within a game like others. My only complaint would be energy. I think we should get more than 5.
Fun
by Buffster44 on 2019/12/26 22:21
Not your usual haiku game but definitely fun. Have to wait for keys to unlock clues but refills in an hour. Lots of reading and decision making. Looking forward to another one but their escapes are still better 😍
Not what expected
by Parton mom on 2019/12/14 06:14
I love the “escape “ games you put out. This game is good in its own right but not exactly what I expected. There are no puzzles. This is more like the old “ choose your own adventure” books I read as a kid.
Pay to Play
by EleniSS on 2019/12/12 01:54
You have to purchase ‘keys’ to move forward in the game. Just charge an amount to buy the game instead of making players buy stuff to play.
Solve it

Good game I really enjoyed it
Not bad
by sflgames on 2019/11/20 13:20
Would like a few more codes and puzzles to crack but interesting and plots moves along nicely.
Amazing
by Fayevulou$ on 2019/11/18 05:38
I’ve always played Haiku games with android and I just got a new iPad and thought I really want some investigation type of games, solving mysteries, and for days I kept trying different games and I was never satisfied until I remembered Haiku games and found this! This is the first game I actually finished cos I was kept interested! It kept me curious and wanting to play more and each decisions made sense and the graphics, of course, always phenomenal. I will definitely recommend this to my friends. I don’t know why the App Store doesn’t have this as recommended or top rated games cos I’m sure each and every one who downloaded any Haiku games loved it!
WHERES THE REST
by Eavie316 on 2019/11/07 19:52
Hi I loved it. It was just like cause of death. I care more about following the same characters through different cases. Chapters whatever. I would have liked for this to have continued on...and on...
Great game!
by JessLynn023 on 2019/11/03 19:58
I give this 5 stars because I’ve never played anything like it. I really got into this game, and was hoping there was more than just the one time play. If there was more to the story and it didn’t just end the way it did, that would be great! Overall, I loved the experience. Like I keep saying, I wish there was more to it! Haha 😁
New theme, ew!
by trash thats you on 2019/10/30 21:26
Honestly when I downloaded the game I was interested by how it was setup. When I continued to play the game I could only press on the buttons to just say stuff. When I download this games I want to actually solve the cases not just waste coins or keys on this.
Love it
by AnginNC on 2019/10/26 05:44
Was sad it didn’t continue. Hope to see more just like this . Great job
Awesome
by Belle2013bella on 2019/10/20 19:33

Loved this even more than the other Haiku games
by Karina11111q on 2019/10/18 18:10
Love being able to talk to people and you have choose the right people and evidence. Should make it less black and white so depending on what you do, different things happen.
Amazing

Awesome!
by conscslght on 2019/10/13 00:52
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome playing experience! I will be recommending this to all my friends. Good story line, I couldn’t predict where the story was going and I feel like I could play it thru a second time and have a different experience. 😎
Hard to compare
by Lwellert on 2019/10/07 04:15
If you like this kind of game (like Chapters or Episode), this is a good one. There&#39;s some replay value and it&#39;s an excellent storyline. I believe Haiku is better at the Adventure Escape games, but that&#39;s also my preferred genre. This is a good game though. I had to see it through to see how it ended.
Just ok
by dchase224 on 2019/10/06 20:31
I really prefer the escape room style games that you guys make. This was ok but not really what I’m into.
Liked it
by Jude1964 on 2019/09/28 12:48
Def diff from usual mystery games. Make more like these? 😀
Got pulled in
by Different Destination everyDay on 2019/09/26 14:36
Got pulled into the story and spent some coin because I couldn&#39;t wait for the keys to populate. Nice change for a game, and enjoyed that the sleuth could make choices to have or not to have romance, with either gender characters. I see a hint about some extended gameplay in another review, so I may run through it again to see if I can get more sleuthing points. Really like that you have great female leads in many of your games. I&#39;m not a fan of the key system, I would rather pay a couple bucks up front. You have a pretty solid following, and some great games. Having to either pay or wait, on keys, to be able to play is a frustrating model of gameplay, and I avoid developers that use it. It is a bit better on the other style of games where a key unlocks a chapter, I just hate to see you go this route.
Great stuff!
by Oleanderbush on 2019/09/25 15:33
I was expecting kind of a boring game like a kids pick your ending book (which can actually be interesting) but I found that I can get in as much trouble in this game as in any adventure escape game. So 5 stars for holding my interest. I do make the choices that make my character sound nice though, haven’t opted for being mean yet...
Fun
by Sparkles111111 on 2019/09/24 23:14
LOVED this! Unlike other choose your paths I have tried you make it to the end without ‘dying’ and having to start over. Very fun mystery to solve.
Meh.
by Lorourke11 on 2019/09/22 02:04
I love the adventure escape games Haiku puts out, but this is nothing like those. This is simply just a story and you choose a character&#39;s responses. I prefer solving actual puzzles. I probably won&#39;t finish the game.
Love this game !
by Taleesha Lashae on 2019/09/22 01:40
I’ve been waiting on you guys to put out a new game and i absolutely loved this ! It’s so fun solving mysteries. Can’t wait for what you to put out more !
Another Great Game by Haiku
by Jjj246 on 2019/07/27 05:01
I’ve played all the Adventure Escape games, and I’ve been looking forwards to playing Solve It from the moment I heard about it. I finished the game, and I liked it even more than I expected! Solve It is different from Adventure Escape because there are not puzzles or mini games; instead, the mystery unfolds through observation and conversations with other characters. I understand why it is called a virtual novel. At first, I wondered whether this would be like other story apps that require money for all important or interesting choices, but this was not the case. Very few choices required coins, and even though I chose not to spend coins at all, I never felt like I was missing a necessary or important part of the story. Story apps by other creators often require a very long wait to unlock a short part of the story, and I have deleted apps for that reason; however, I thought that the waiting time for keys in this game was very reasonable. I also like how there is the option to replay the story and make different choices. Mystery lovers, like myself, will enjoy this app, and I really hope the developers make another Solve It app in the future, and I am excited to download whatever Haiku creates next. Great job creating this awesome app!

Amazing game. PLEASE MAKE MORE IN THIS STYLE!
by Breekerz on 2019/08/13 18:49
So normally I never download &amp; play games on my phone because they’re usually wack, BUT NOT THIS GAME. I was hooked right away. I love how it is setup, great story line &amp; twists, maybe a few more options &amp; different outcomes per character in the ending but even without its still a above average game &amp; addicting. I love how the style is on how to navigate the game - super simple &amp; honestly left me wanting to play more, please either add more to this series in the app &amp; let it continue on after you complete one or create a new app for each storyline but my advice is just continue it on one after another. Either make them different or include people from the previous one to make it a even more interesting storyline 😱 Would rate it 10 stars if i could!! So i had to review. Oh &amp; thank you for making the new lives timer fast &amp; barely any ads &amp; for it being FREE &amp; love how you can easily earn coins by being a good detective 😏
Different... but good
by Crystalpenguin12 on 2019/08/28 19:14
I really like all of Haiku’s games and was curious to see this new “visual novel” they were putting out. Honestly, it’s pretty good. If you’re expecting anything like the others, you’ll be disappointed because there are ZERO elements of collecting items and cracking codes through mini games. I would compare this game to Episode. It relies solely on the player’s choices, but does a good job of keeping the plot moving. If you’re into this kind of game, you’ll love Solve It! Couple minor issues: sometimes I would earn a few keys only to open the game and find out I had none. It would also glitch sometimes and speed through conversations or not let me pick buttons at all, though that may have been a problem just on my phone. My only issue with the plot line itself is that it was a little too suggestive at some points, with at least one cuss word thrown in. Would have been much better without that. Otherwise, good story and fun game! Side note: when interviewing that girl for Herschel’s alibi, Logan says Matthew instead of Herschel.
Got pulled in
by Different Destination everyDay on 2019/09/26 14:36
Got pulled into the story and spent some coin because I couldn&#39;t wait for the keys to populate. Nice change for a game, and enjoyed that the sleuth could make choices to have or not to have romance, with either gender characters. I see a hint about some extended gameplay in another review, so I may run through it again to see if I can get more sleuthing points. Really like that you have great female leads in many of your games. I&#39;m not a fan of the key system, I would rather pay a couple bucks up front. You have a pretty solid following, and some great games. Having to either pay or wait, on keys, to be able to play is a frustrating model of gameplay, and I avoid developers that use it. It is a bit better on the other style of games where a key unlocks a chapter, I just hate to see you go this route.
What a wonderful game
by Lauren_iz_2_bored on 2019/07/08 02:25
I have played (I believe) all of the Haikus games. I LOVE their adventure escape games. I’ve spent hours trying to solve them, and enjoying the dialogue, the puzzles, and the suspense inducing outcome. They’re always satisfying! I was a little weary about Solve it when I saw that it was a different format than Haikus usual games, but as I just completed the game, I have to say that I’m absolutely thrilled this game exists. It was such a beautiful game, with the art and dialogue, and introduces a different perspective than the adventure escape games. While I definitely still love the adventure escape games, and try to patiently wait for the next game to come out, I would be ECSTATIC if Haiku Games came out with another game like Solve it. 10/10 would recommend it. Keep up the amazing work Haiku!
Great Start: addictive and fun!
by Momma bird7 on 2019/08/12 23:58
I know I played a beta version, but I really enjoyed this game. The characters and story were really great and I can’t wait to play the full version of this! The only 2 things I would tweak are: 1. I felt like I could never get enough points (sleuth dollars?) before the chance to use ALL of them came up. Either make points easier to obtain, rewards greater, or the option to use them less. 80 each time is a little much when you get 2-4 per interaction. 2. Make sure there is no way to do things out of order. There were a few times when I used a clue and the interaction told me information I already got elsewhere or led me to talk to someone I already had. Other than those two minor things, I liked it. In fact, I’m going to play it again so I can have enough points to explore options I couldn’t the first time!
Not an “escape” game
by ,\\'//<//?/_// //3/-\\//_ _\\ on 2019/08/22 06:19
This is a very different game than the normal Haiku room escape games, just so you know, and I’m am saying that this is a bad game, it’s a great game. For what it is, a visual novel, the game is fun, and a good way to kill 15 minutes here and there. As long as you realize this is a different type of game than all the other Haiku games. I’ve played all of those, or all that are on the App Store. Most visual novels, for me, are boring, this was an entertaining visual novel, with a lot of decisions that effect the ending/progress of the story. Altogether a great game for being the first of its kind from this company, also try out there escape games there all amazing, and basically free if you want them to be. Only reason I gave 4 stars is it costs too many coins to play certain extra “deluxe chapters”, or you don’t get enough coins for good decisions, the balance is off just a bit.
Fun Interactive Story
by RRdz1 on 2020/06/23 23:23
I have tried a couple of interactive story apps, and this is by far my favorite. I like that the choices are interesting and we do not need to spend money on diamonds for a chance at a better choice to improve the story. This story is already engaging and fun. I love the characters and the fact that the keys replenish within a few minutes. Thank you so much for this game, please, please, make more engaging stories like this one and do not go the same route as the other interactive stories where you give up because the ridiculous amount of diamonds they charge for the choice and then they expect you to buy diamonds on top of it. You did it perfectly and I love your game!
Haiku Different
by DelleeComeOn on 2020/03/14 04:06
I love Haiku&#39;s escape games, so wasn&#39;t sure what to expect with this new visual novel format. I will admit, it was pretty enjoyable and the story was just as well-done as all of their other ones. There is always some mystery going on, but in this one you are the investigator. There are no puzzles to solve, just options of what questions to ask and who to question. Nothing really that difficult, but it was interesting to see what would happen depending on what you did. Something kinda irritating though, is the developers seemed a bit hung up on sexual encounters. Like, if it was part of the story that was fine, but to keep bringing it up for the character you are playing as, was kinda weird. I would recommend this game, but not with that as part of it. Sorry.
Super Good!!!!!
by Blue Shesse on 2019/08/15 21:18
I’ve played all of the Haiku Games so far and this one is definitely my favorite in terms of the storyline. I enjoyed the different style of this game as much as the others. I used to play the games alone, but now a ton of my friends enjoy these games too and we all can’t wait for the next one to play together. This company deserves so much more credit than it has received. There is not a better escape game on the market. Can’t wait for the next game!!!
Interesting new game
by ovcghxhkbff on 2019/08/17 00:04
Hi! I LOVE ALL your adventure escape games and cannot wait for the next one to come out- please hurry!!! At first I was disappointed because I thought this was going to be like the other AE games that I love. Then I found an appreciation for it bc it’s very different. However a few tweaks- there’s not many coins awarded when it’s 80 to cash in...It should be possible to do every interaction if you answer everything perfectly (let’s call it “expert”), and there’s no way you earn enough coins to do that. On that note, I thought there’d be a juicy story when I did 80 coins to here his and Cindy’s story &amp; it was disappointing- add more steam to it please!!! Anyways this was different &amp; enjoyable but please keep making more of the original games with Kate!
Solve It but be prepared to wait forever.
by stuntbush on 2019/07/31 18:47
I much prefer the puzzles and style of the adventure games. The key system is annoying enough in those games but atleast you get some solid play time in. The novel route was interesting enough but the key system ruins the mojo. When playing a game of this sort you want to keep a flow. Using a key for 3 minutes of dialogue is ridiculous. The format ruins the game. Break it into chapters. A key should give you more play. I just simply think this key system barely works for the adventure games but ruins this game. I have given you three stars solely to try and be supportive to your past work. It really doesn’t rise to the level of past games. I recommend if you skip this entry and play Trapmaker instead.
Fresh
by 123$!;&8&'s on 2019/07/15 23:46
I’ve played all the adventure escape games much like most reviews here and this new format was quite refreshing! It was great to switch it up and date I say I love solve it just as much it even more than adventure escape. Don’t get me wrong, I’m waiting for more adventure escape but now I want more Solve it! There’s so many scenarios and you can replay it and try different options to see what events will play out. I’ll keep an eye for more like from Haiku!
Great idea that I’m sure will get better.
by JMoss262 on 2019/08/26 10:43
I’ve played all of the Haiku escape games and mysteries and have loved them! My favorite is solving puzzles and taking in the characters and stories ~ this one was different and interesting, but I missed the puzzle aspect and the interactive scenes. It felt a little forced at times and I never did understand the stealth points. I’d have liked more freedom to explore the scenes vs just relying on conversations. Characters were fine, though it looks like I would have needed to spend all of my sleuth (?) to get to anything more *interesting* about them.
Suspenseful
by AC4147369933 on 2019/08/26 19:54
Super good story and game design. The characters are all rounded out with their own back story. The game plays like a real detective story where you have to consider the clues and take initiative to follow leads, question suspects and piece it together. The action sequences really surprised me and I felt the real threat and pressure that if I made the wrong choice my character could die. I couldn&#39;t stop thinking about it in between playing it. Like a modern Raymond Chandler PI game. Please make more!
Impressive
by retired gamer girl on 2019/07/09 07:15
I really enjoy playing haiku games because they are free and there’s no trial that I have to pay for. This specific haiku game is especially my favorite because of how interactive it was (I know the title says “interactive game” but still), even though there were a few times were you had a chance to use your coins to make a decision it wasn&#39;t so major were it would make or break your decision it was just for extra fun.
Love it!
by Altaircsus on 2020/06/27 22:39
I downloaded this game from another one of the games, and I loved it! The extra little parts of the stories were fun. All of it reminded me of the old “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, but you couldn’t mess up the case (as far as I saw). My only concern was sometimes having to restart a cheaper if my phone locked or timed out...not completely annoying, but could be confusing sometimes
Very fun but...
by inconvenient left hander on 2020/07/29 20:23
I really enjoy all their games. Not a bad one. They’re similar enough that the game play is easy to pick up but different enough to make them unique. The only thing I don’t like is how you have to use the right arrow to flip through text. I’m left handed so my hand is constantly crossing the screen. It’s a small thing but very annoying. A lot of other games you can touch anyway which is very left hand friendly. Just something I wish was changed
Great!
by Scrambleaholic on 2019/08/24 18:28
I really love Haiku Games in general, so I was excited to try this game out after playing many of the mystery escape games. This took some getting used to at first, having to wait for keys wasn’t my favorite feature. But overall I really enjoyed the storyline and format of it! Getting to choose my responses to almost every situation kept me interested, and it was fun seeing the consequences of each choice. I would definitely play this game again with another new mystery to solve if I could!
#1 go to for mystery case solving games.
by Ken.ology on 2020/05/21 04:44
All of their story lines are original and even intense enough to keep coming back for more! Out of all the game apps I’ve tried this one by far has the best puzzles as well and u don’t have to wait too long for keys and perks are good without having to pay too much for diamonds and stuff. I love it! I love them ! Just download and play already!!!
Unique
by PScott52 on 2019/08/31 13:34
I thought it would be more like the Adventure games, but it was still pretty cool. I would have liked it to have a little more real sleuthing action. There was some but it also felt a little like I couldn’t lose, just make choices. BUT maybe I just did well? Either way, I did enjoy myself and I love all the games that the company makes. I like them so much that I wait a little bit in hopes of forgetting it and play them again! I could go through 1-2 a week!
Great game!
by JessLynn023 on 2019/11/03 19:58
I give this 5 stars because I’ve never played anything like it. I really got into this game, and was hoping there was more than just the one time play. If there was more to the story and it didn’t just end the way it did, that would be great! Overall, I loved the experience. Like I keep saying, I wish there was more to it! Haha 😁
My opinion on this first for y’all
by MrsAlyyB630 on 2019/07/26 19:16
I know this is the first time y’all are trying this type of game, and I want to say I really liked it. Just with these types of games, I like that you can customize your character, we didn’t get that with this one, but the story line, characters and options were great. I would give us more options to choose from, and more customization. Other then that, great job on this game guys!
A Game of Choices
by Reviewer296446 on 2020/04/18 04:12
I&#39;ve played all the other Haiku games and decided to give this one a try. I scanned the reviews before downloading so knew it would be different than their adventure escape games, but wanted to go into it without prejudice so didn&#39;t research any further. The game is a storytelling game where you make choices about what questions/responses to select and which characters to interrogate. Personally, this is not my favorite type of gameplay, but if you are someone that like that, this one is very well done. The aesthetics were nice, and the key system was fairly balanced. They replenish quickly enough that free players won&#39;t feel frustrated and pay players won&#39;t have to spend a fortune. Overall, well executed.
Hated it
by Kmoc1972 on 2019/08/30 22:00
Sorry haiku I usually love your games. But this game was super boring. I didn’t even finish it. I’m bummed that you put this game out before finishing the ones that have said “coming soon” forever. I’ve played every single one of you masterpieces and I don’t mind different but this game is a dud. Nothing to do but read. No puzzles to solve. Nothing. If this is what I wanted I’d get a book. Sorry for the bad review. I gave 2 stars but only because I love all your other games. Please finish the other games so I can get back to what I love in Haiku!!!
Great game
by Iluvfrgz on 2019/07/13 10:13
I absolutely love Haiku games!!! I’ve played every one!!! This game was definitely one of my top 5. I liked that it was different from their other games. Being able to interact and choose responses made it really interesting. I look forward to seeing more games like this!!! Hopefully we will get some new Adventure games as well!!!!!
Great stuff!
by Oleanderbush on 2019/09/25 15:33
I was expecting kind of a boring game like a kids pick your ending book (which can actually be interesting) but I found that I can get in as much trouble in this game as in any adventure escape game. So 5 stars for holding my interest. I do make the choices that make my character sound nice though, haven’t opted for being mean yet...
Great game!
by Lilerz2224 on 2019/07/14 02:47
I love haiku games. I’ve played every single one. This one was very different but I enjoyed it. It never dragged on and it always kept me guessing. It was really well written and well designed. It seems like all the bugs were fixed (or at least they didn’t happen to me). Thanks for the great games and I can’t wait for more to come!
Great
by BelleViolet99 on 2019/07/03 02:54
I absolutely love Haiku Games! I was curious with their new display and format in Death of a CEO and a bit skeptical, as I’ve played nearly all Adventure Escape games so far. But I wanted to play the game completely through and give it a chance. It was awesome! While I do love all the puzzles in Adventure Escape, this game gave a fresh new spin. Adventure Escape will always be my favorite though. Can’t wait to see what else Haiku Games comes up with :D
The best game yet!
by punkrocksupernova on 2019/08/11 14:35
I’ve played every single game by this developer and this is HANDS-DOWN my favorite! I love the ‘choose your own ending’ style and feel that the turn around time for waiting on keys was acceptable (about 20 minutes). Thank you for making such a great game and please make more with these characters in the future!!!!!!!
Better than I thought.
by Potato_AppleSauce on 2020/02/01 13:36
I’ve downloaded a lot of games like this that were terrible. I downloaded this expecting the same thing but it is really amazing. It has suspense and real world personalities. This game has a little of everything and I really loved it. I 100% recommend it to everyone.
Sooo fun!
by BLMSALOT on 2020/07/16 14:29
This is A-MA-ZING! If you are reading this, trust me, you will have no regrets with this game! There is nothing I will suggest, it&#39;s perfect, and so fun. I just wish one thing, actually... maybe the romances could be free, but have a little consequence instead of costing money? It&#39;s just, you barely get any money and I really would like to have the romance with Logan.
New game and loving it!
by flagcomm1 on 2020/08/31 02:37
I was curious to play this game as other reviewers indicated there were no puzzles to play. That was a major selling point for me. I just finished playing and it was fun. Now I want to go back and see if I can change things up with other responses.
Something New
by Kat.Fish.Swim on 2020/06/12 01:00
I was looking for a detective game. This game caught my attention because I’m an avid reader. It combines reading and investigating. It kept my interest and I could leave and come back to the game later. My only complaint is the one scene at the cafe. It was a bit weak. It seemed like it was a rush to tie up loose ends. Overall this was a cool diversion. I look forward to more of episodes.
Like Escape better
by Kt41B5 on 2019/07/18 14:05
I enjoy playing Haiku games! They are my absolute favorites!! This game was okay, but I like solving puzzles much better. This game basically led to the conclusion with the limited choices. They were not always my choice. Would be interesting to see where my choices led. All in all, you are great game creators and I applaud your efforts!! Thank you! Can barely wait for more!!
Fun
by COgurl on 2019/09/05 15:47
I have enjoyed all of the Haiku games. I love that I am in charge of the story based off of my choices. Also, I like that I am not forced into spending money. You definitely can buy keys to make some more interesting choices, but it is not mandatory. I hope that doesn’t change because I will continue to get these games as they come out.
Different than the others
by Regular Wish Customer on 2019/08/28 23:03
This game was different than their other games, and it’s kind of disappointing. This one was kind of boring. This game is conversation only, you have the option of what question you want to ask and what response you reply with, but that’s it. Unlike their other games, there are no games to play, no clues to find. This game was done well, but it’s less of a game, more of a who done it via conversations.
LOVEDDD THE FORMAT!!
by qqqwwibsfajgdjdndbd on 2019/08/19 22:16
Don’t get me wrong I love all the other Haiku games, but this new format even more entertaining. I love how u were allowed to be the detective and interview suspects to try and solve the case. I can’t wait to play more more Haiku games and hope there will be more games similar to this one in the near future!
Fun!
by Angelette52 on 2019/08/08 15:52
Good game! Agree with others in allowing to customize characters. Also allowing an early solve feature and other endings in case you choose incorrectly. And then allowing to replay to guess correctly again. Good job! I enjoyed it! Please make more 😊
Different and fun, but.....
by VTfantastic on 2019/07/21 15:42
I wish there was a “go back” feature that you can use once or twice. I accidentally clicked the wrong option once and then again realized as I clicked that chose incorrectly. Just wonder how the game would be different but don’t want to wait for more keys to play again.
Great game!
by Vetiver Apothecary on 2020/05/27 16:22
I’ve downloaded and played all three of these now and LOVE THEM. They’re fun story lines with good twists and turns. Appreciate that they’re not dependent on coins, and really like the code-cracking moments. Add more cool puzzles into the storylines and make a 4th story please :) thanks for making this available for free!
Loved this even more than the other Haiku games
by Karina11111q on 2019/10/18 18:10
Love being able to talk to people and you have choose the right people and evidence. Should make it less black and white so depending on what you do, different things happen.
Mine won’t work
by Ndjdjjdhhhhh on 2019/07/04 23:27
I have a newer iPhone... after a few minutes the game shuts out and I’m back to my main phone page.... when I click on it in the trap keeper package, it just says coming soon... I downloaded latest version
Really good mystery game
by LazerLazerLazer on 2020/04/03 22:20
Just what I was looking for—a cool mystery story without trashy romance. This even has devices specific to the genre, e.g., clues you investigate with specific NPCs. There’s bonus content and other pay-to-play features, but the game is fun and playable without them. Highly recommended.
Story telling
by trou6637/5 on 2019/08/01 21:49
(English is not my first languages) The story in the game kept you on your toes during the whole game it kept giving you subtle hints towards the killer and gave you many options that affected the gameplay overall a very well done game
Choose Your Own Adventure Detective Story Game
by Carnerds on 2019/07/12 13:00
This was a smart, fun, interactive game. I had fun looking for answers but having some choice in the outcome. Love all Haiku games...this one was a pleasant surprise as it was different...more word-based but still engaging. I’m happy to offer my services as an initial game tester. 😉
SUPPORT THIS DEVELOPER
by flora🌺🌱 on 2020/04/16 04:27
Been a fan for a while, and while I was wary of their dive into visual novels, Haiku Games did not disappoint. Interesting story, beautiful art, and its FREE, which is a huge deal when it comes to apps of a similar nature. Play the game, spend some money if you can, and support this dev!
Best Game I’ve played!
by hanniemarie123 on 2020/05/01 05:05
I LOVE this game! Love the crime, the in depth choice making and the blips of romance. I was devastated to see how short it was though! I thought I might get a second case but it was only one case. Are more cases coming?? I’d love to see the story continue.
