While there have been quite a variety of point-and-click adventures on the Switch to date, they’ve mostly been of a more humorous nature. Detective Di changes that up pretty significantly, with more of a murder mystery tone that’s also steeped in Far East culture and set in the distant past… all making for a distinctive experience. Depending on your tastes in puzzles in terms of complexity and inventory management there could be good or bad news. It certainly doesn’t tend to waste your time (though you will need to do a bit of backtracking between areas) with loads of convoluted or even useless items laying about, but that also can make it feel a bit more linear in nature which can rob you of the satisfaction of seeing the big picture and working out some tougher challenges. Still, if you’re looking for some solid story-telling and a change of pace in your adventure gaming this is a solid option.
