Personal review

This is the first game in Nintendo's "Detective Club" adventure game series, released as a two-part game with the disks released on different release dates, similar to Nintendo's own Famicom Mukashi Banashi: Shin Onigashima adventure game. The plot is a typical Portopia Renzoku Satsujin Jiken -style murder mystery with the standard command-line interface. The game seems to be decent enough, but is heavily text-based and can only be enjoyed when you understand Japanese.

The story begins with a man named "Amachi" discovering the fallen protagonist on the ground near a cliff. The protagonist discovers that he has lost his memory, and after recuperating, he revisits the cliff and meets a young girl named Ayumi Tachibana. He learns from Ayumi that he is an assistant detective investigating the death of Kiku Ayashiro, and heads over to the nearby Ayashiro estate located in Myoujin village. The Ayashiro family owns a huge plot of land passed down from generation to generation, but there is a strange saying in the village that the dead will return to life to kill anyone who attempts to steal the treasure of the Ayashiro family. As the protagonist investigates the mysterious death of Kiku Ayashiro, he discovers the terrifying connection between this saying and the serial killings which take place. [...] The game is a standard command-style adventure. The player chooses from a set of text commands to interrogate, examine, or move from place to place. The setting of the secluded mansion gave the game a tense and horror movie-like atmosphere which was well received by fans.
