Is It Any Good?
While this interactive murder mystery is engaging, it's sometimes slightly undermined by flawed technical mechanics. In Silent Streets: The Mockingbird's Last Dive, you have to investigate the disappearance of a woman's husband in 1866. To do so, you have to choose what to say and how to say it, examine certain scenes for clues, and ask a lot of questions. But while this makes for an engaging mystery in the vein of Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie, this doesn't always work right if you play it on your iPad instead of your iPhone. For instance, when you want your character to walk somewhere, you can take a cab (which often requires you to play a simple mini-game), you can wait (which often takes a long time), or you can walk in real life. The problem being that your iPad doesn't do a good job of registering your steps, while waiting can take a while, and neither is all that fun. But if you're okay with the slow pace, and you're okay playing a text-heavy game on the small screen of your iPhone, you'll have a lot to think about as you try to solve Silent Streets: The Mockingbird's Last Dive.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
