Detective Jackie – Mystic Case is a story-based game where you’re investigating the murder of a 17-year-old girl who mysteriously died outside of a museum running out of a taxi. The police believe that the girl died of a heart attack, but the detective Jackie (played by you) believes that it was a murder. In the first chapter, you find out more about the victim and get to analyze the crime scene. Police officers stop by requesting to look at certain parts of the crime scene, but it’s your job to get through them all before the time runs out. The gameplay is very similar to cooking games like Cooking Craze where you need to serve customers during a time limit.
Similarly to Welcome to Primrose Lake, the graphics don’t exactly have the wow factor, but they’re not terrible for an app game. The game is laid out in a way that is very classic in terms of gaming, and the characters move in corners only. The characters don’t move a lot unless they’re talking to each other.
In the cut scenes, like when Detective Jackie is interrogating the cab driver, the graphics are noticeably different and better.
Music & Sounds
The music is exactly what you’d expect from a game based around solving a murder mystery. It fits in really well with the overall gameplay and makes it a better experience overall.
The controls are as simple as the gameplay themselves. Tap to fulfill a request from the police, and tap to deliver it to them. That’s about as complicated as it gets.
The Power of in-app Purchases

Detective Jackie is a fun story game that has a lot of potentials – as long as you pay the £9.99 a month in order to actually complete the game. Games like this are not for people who aren’t willing to pay the extra prices. I personally don’t find it worth playing if I’m not going to be able to view the whole story without playing money. However, if you’re looking for a good story game, Episode and Choices are great and you can complete the story without purchasing anything.
