I Spy meets Where's Waldo in Mystery Case Files: Prime Suspects, a point-and-click search for clues that reveal the culprit of a jewel heist. The game begins as you are asked to investigate the theft of the Queen's Hope Diamond. Clues to finding the thief can be found throughout 29 environments that you must search to determine which of the 20 suspects is the real burglar. A timer is ticking while you investigate the various scenes, creating a sense of urgency to complete your task before time runs out. The first few levels start with plenty of minutes on the clock, but as the game progresses you are given less time to locate clues and solve the puzzles that allow you to advance to another stage.
When searching for clues among the scattered junk in each area, you may need to solve a problem before you can continue your quest for the culprit. For example, some levels are dark and require the use of your flashlight, but you might first have to find some batteries located in previous areas to power it before you can continue. Other tools that can come in handy are your magnifying glass and x-ray machine that can be used to zoom in on items or see right through them. Once you find all the pieces of the puzzle, you must assemble them to get a photo of the crime in progress, ultimately showing the face of the thief and where the diamond is located. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game Guide
