Description of App

Ears Clues is a fully accessible board game inspired by the board game Clue.

The object of the game is to determine who murdered the game's victim , where the crime took place, and which weapon was used.

Each player assumes the role of one of the six suspects, and attempts to deduce the correct answer by strategically moving from room to room in a mansion and collecting clues about the circumstances of the murder from the other players.

You can play with up to 3 computer opponents, and you can adjust their skill level.

The game comes with coins for playing a bunch of games; you can purchase more coins with an in-app upgrade.

So I thought I had the killer figured out and no one could disprove me but when I opened the envelope it wasn't right. So I wonder why no one could disprove it. Anyone have suggestions?

I've never played Clue so this should be fun. Ironically there's a Golden girls version of this just released. I realize this probably wouldn't be possible but if kid friendly ever tried, it'd be cool. Again, ofr those who wanted it, it could be an in app purchase. I'll try this game while on the train next week.

I've played on my iPhone and everything seems to work well, it is only on my ipod mini that things go strange. Just wanted to point that out.

Hi, wondering does anyone know is there a way to disable the game sounds as you move from room to room? I find them incredibly annoying given how long some of them are and how frequently I must go back to the same rooms. also, a question on strategy, if someone shows me a card does that mean I can rule that card out entirely from the solution? like for example if someone showed me mr. green or the wrope does that mean I definitely know that they were not involved in the murder at all regardless of the location I test them in.
as to suspicions being proved or not proved I have found within the same game multiple times suspicions are not proved for solutions I try.
lastly a question about the computer players, do they actually ever make guesses and accuse the killers? unfortunately although I really enjoy blindfold games the computer players is one area I think that could use work as certainly in other games like monopoly they are just no fun as they never do anything like initiate trades etc. wondering if this is the same with blindfold clues.

In the game, the computer players won't accuse unless they are certain; that's the same way a good clue player plays. I hear your idea about shutting of sounds. Before I implement that, if someone could suggest me which sounds the "LESS SOUND EFFECTS" option should disable, I would appreciate it. And if you have other ideas, let me know.

If the game becomes popular, I can create add-on packs of other characters such as the one you mentioned, and if you have ideas for alternate room to go with that, I'm all ears.

There were some bugs in the first release; if you encounter any odd things in the current version, let me know.

I decided to download this game and it is definitely a lot of fun. I enjoyed playing this as a kid after watching the Babysitters' Club, so it brings back fun memories. I wonder why the sounds don't play when I myself move to the different rooms. I enjoy the sound effects of rooms and weapons. It would be even more immersive to have sound clips of the characters, as I have no idea how they look. Variations such as a Harry Potter Clue with suspects like Lord Voldemort and Draco Malfoy, and curses like Avada Kedavra around the Hogwarts castle would be neat. Anyway, I appreciate you creating so many great games for us to play. I definitely unlock unlimited coins and various upgrade options for all the games that I become even remotely interested in. I know we don't net you as much as the developers of Candy Crush Saga or Angry Birds, but I am glad that (at least, from the looks of it) our support has allowed you to continue developing these games.
