I'll admit, I'm kinda surprised Atlus is choosing to publish a Touch Detective sequel.  I did like the first game, but in looking at all the various press reviews, everyone else pretty much slammed it.  I don't think it sold too well either.  Seems a bit of a risk to publish a sequel to a game that wasn't very well received.  

I guess as long as the sequel makes the puzzles less random (I spent a lot of time going around in circles), doesn't resort to minute pixel hunting, and expands the number of explorable areas it should be an improvement.

Been playing Touch Dectective (still on case 1) and I am enjoying it. It did seem critics were too critical for what it is, but thats there opinion. I am a little surprised Atlus will publish the sequels, and maybe they will play safe by releasing even fewer copies for those who like the first game to hunt it down, but tough call. Atlus rocks.

I'll buy it.  I rather liked the first game, especially the art style.  I feel like I must support adventure gaming.

For what it's worth, here's my review.  I'm pretty sure I gave it one of the higher scores among press reviewers.

I never understood why critics were so peeved about the air pump on the landlady puzzle.  
Code:
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.  
Code:
I thought the spiderweb on the butterfly net puzzle was silly, arbitrary, and it took me forever to find the web.
