A new case with the twist

A new case with the twist - online cold case files game

New case is available, but this one is slightly different from previous one. No, still someone dies, still there are few suspects, but this time you get help solving the case. Big help, because case #14, The Lens of the Beholder, is a tutorial case.

How does it work? It is a case just like any other short case, but this time under each piece of evidence you will find a red icon that will allow you to use the tutorial help for this particular part of the case file. This help is different from help you can get from the informant, here you will find information what you should have spotted, what is the meaning of that finding and how this should steer your investigation towards solution.

Of course it is a perfectly normal short case, so you can solve it without using any of the tutorial help, however, knowing human nature, we have to assume you will be using at least part of the tutorial help. That is why the points for the ranking you can get for solving this case are... marginal.
