Been working on this puzzle generation system for a few months now. It still needs a little work, but I thought now was a good time to get it into a playable form. Enjoy!

I've added updated the description on the game's page outlining the basic rules of the puzzle:

  • Each icon has one correct location in the puzzle
  • Each column represents a person at the party
  • There are up to 6 pieces of info about each person (what they looked like, what they ate, what hat they wore etc.)
  • Each person has only one correct answer for each row

p.s. if Orange is NOT in the same column as Baby, then you *must* know where Orange is to eliminate baby, and vice versa...

Didn't hear audio, but maby thats a browser issue. Graphics were crisp, controls seemed responsive. Really couldnt figure out how to play.  Tried 3 times on easiest difficulty. I though i understood what to do (click to eliminate pics based on clues, but even though i thought i was correctly eliminating something i still failed so not sure).

Hi!

I've added a comment above explaining the rules a bit more clearly (and updated the page description). Hopefully that should clear things up!

Thanks for playing!

Hi Mark.

I feel like DragonGino : the clues are not clear to understand (or is it the mechanic ?), sometimes we think a clue apply and in fact not. It is very possible we don't understand the mechanic :)

Also,, why is there clues at the bottom and on the right of the board ? Have they a different meaning ?

Can't rate now, I'll come back soon to try again.

Hello!

The clues at the bottom are "horizontal", they deal with things being next to one another (or not) and the ones on the right are "vertical" they deal with things being in the same column. It's a convention from the original Sherlock, but it is sort of arbitrary, so maybe it's not needed!

I've added a comment above giving a more thorough explanation of the rules - I should have included this from the start, so it's no wonder everyone is a bit confused by it. Hopefully it's a bit easier to understand now :)

Thanks for playing!

It is a little bit confusion in the search element. it said sometimes that i have to delete that icon but i get the wrong one even if the descriptions apply on it. Also there is a bug when do it wrong and you go back to the main menu to try again it say then to you puzzle solved. further more I like the idea of this for a puzzle game

Thanks for playing! I've uploaded a fix now that will prevent the "puzzle solved" popup showing repeatedly.

I'm pretty sure the clues are accurate - but perhaps their description is confusing... let me know if you play again and see a specific clue that didn't make sense.
