Episode 5 continues the high quality of The Detective Society series, and I was relieved to find that it disn't contain quite the same degree of slightly tortuous arithmetic puzzles from the last episode! Instead, there's some nice audio/spatial puzzles, the usual website searching, logical deduction, and a virtual treasure hunt runaround finale. 

Really enjoyable, lovely flow throughout - though there was one puzzle that could require a little outside research if you're not familiar with the basics of genetic inheritance. We completed it in a shorter time than average - I don't know if this was because we're becoming more attuned to the creator's style of puzzle, or whether there was actually slightly less content in this episode but, either way, it didn't affect our enjoyment - I'd much rather a well-rounded experience that lasted just over an hour than one that is filled with extra fluff just to pad it out, and we didn't find any fluff in this game.

Rated between 40 and 40 out of 5
