Well we have all seen movies of Sherlock Holmes and watching him solve a case is just a treat. His passion for work, desire to proceed further and his unmatchable IQ are just some of the traits that have made him so successful. But it’s very difficult for your child to share the same sheer enjoyment for him. They are too young to understand such a fast paced suspense drama and sometimes even the parents have to roll back in times to understand what he just did. But if some young children of their age come ahead to solve some mysterious cases on their own with the same anxiety and excitement as attending the first day of his new school, don’t you think it’ll be more engaging to them? If you think so, then let’s go on such a mission with your children on the front seats.


I am talking about the latest iOS app called Little DetectivesK that has been developed by PUBLSTUDIO. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 4.3 or any later version of the OS. The app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.

Little DetectivesK is a story about three young children: Jina, Kyle and Noah who have different skills and abilities and are brilliant students as well. They become suspicious about some of the activities in their school and start spying. Children will find this storyline very interesting and full of fantasies as well. But the developers have done a good job in the gameplay to keep it more realistic and grounded towards how a case is examined. So for each new mystery, you start with searching out the clues and eliminating all the possible innocents and focusing your attention on the probable suspects. Then you have to find the map to proceed further in the case and then there are numerous puzzles to solve and get to the criminal.


Apart from a very realistic and fast paced gameplay, the graphics help the game to reach new heights. There are so many different elements that have been combined to give a crime scene like presence. For example, each place has been designed with sheer devotion. There are objects clustered and placed irregularly. Then the characters remind of some old detective serials like Scooby Doo where while one excelled in sports, the other counterpart was good in studies. So these things allow your children to relate with them and become a part of their thrilling and suspenseful journey.


Overall, I think this is a perfect app for your children to learn different skills like reasoning, patience, concentration, etc which add to his/her overall personality. Moreover, this app is available for free in the App Store. This is such a great app that you don’t even need to think for a moment before you download it. Just go for it now!

Pros: engaging storyline; amazing graphics; good characterization; find clues, maps and solve puzzles; free.

Cons: none.
