*Sherlock Holmes: Lost Detective* launches today on iOS: Join forces with the world’s greatest detective in a new case 100 years in the making
*Sherlock Holmes: Lost Detective* can now be downloaded for free from the App Store!
In SHERLOCK HOLMES: LOST DETECTIVE, the player takes on the role of a rookie Scotland Yard agent who has stumbled across a crime that might be more complex than meets the eye. A strange masked man has appeared in London and is recreating Sherlock Holmes’ greatest cases down to the last bloody detail. Unsure of his motivations, you hunt for clues and try to put the pieces together in a thrilling adventure set in present day. At your side is the great detective himself — or a patient who claims to be Sherlock Holmes! Is this man just another lost soul with delusions of grandeur? Could Sherlock Holmes still be alive after vanishing from the face of the earth more than 100 years ago?
Developed by Argentinian studio The Other Guys, Sherlock Holmes: Lost Detective was originally released on Facebook and is now making its mobile debut on iOS. The game’s first season is broken into 10 episodes — each containing new locations to explore, clues to find, and mysteries to solve. When you arrive at a crime scene, you must piece together clues from shredded bits of paper, hidden messages, and specific objects to uncover the truth. Finding the right items among the chaos can be tricky — and time is of the essence. The faster you’re able to find clues, the greater your rewards will be. Chain items and clues together for bigger bonuses — and correctly identify all objects to receive the ultimate reward!
