For what it's worth, here's my review. I'm pretty sure I gave it one of the higher scores among press reviewers. http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/touchdetective/index.html
I never understood why critics were so peeved about the air pump on the landlady puzzle.
Cromwell gives you hints, so showing him the air pump made him say it belonged to the landlady so of course you'll give it to her.
This puzzle was a bit annoying, though.
I thought the spiderweb on the butterfly net puzzle was silly, arbitrary, and it took me forever to find the web.
