"An Itch.io Review?? Why would you want to review an itch.io?? I say if you have an itch.io, just scratch.io it and be done with it!"
SHUT UP, DOOLEY!!
The Darkside Detective is a hilarious point-and-click adventure, or rather a collection of point-and-click adventures, as the game consists of several cases (7 at the time of this writing) involving some kind of paranormal activity, each of which can be finished in about an hour. The interface is simple once you get used to it - it took me a couple of tries to realize you had to drag inventory items to use them. On top of that, the pixel art is well done, and the writing is absolutely top notch!
For a glimpse of what the game is like, here's my Let's Play of the first case of the game, "Malice in Wonderland"!
