DALLAS (November 5, 2010) – MumboJumbo, leading developer and publisher of casual games, today released Unlikely Suspects, a new franchise of hidden-object adventure games that revolutionizes replayability.  With more than 4,000 outcomes, players can sleuth through the whodunit game over and over again to crack new cases.  The PC game launches on major portals today, and the iPad version follows shortly thereafter.      

“We’re really proud of what we’ve accomplished in Unlikely Suspects,” said Mark Cottam, CEO of MumboJumbo.  “The game features great characters, challenging plot lines to unravel, and fun hidden object scenes.  Players can unlock a quick play mode that lets them try to crack as many of the 4,000 cases as they want to.” 

In Unlikely Suspects, players must collect clues at the crime scene and the victim’s lair to narrow down which cities to search for the criminal.  The player then visits scenes around the globe to try to collect three pieces of solid evidence that point to the weapon and the suspect to receive a warrant.  Once they’ve narrowed down the suspect and the weapon, the player can make an accusation to put the criminal away.  With 16 suspects to track and 16 weapons for the player to eliminate from the possibilities for each case, the game offers myriad of outcomes creating the ultimate in game value.          

“Unlikely Suspects looks fantastic on the iPad, and we’re excited to release it in the App Store,” said Cottam.  “This game will make a great addition to the quality line up of iPad Apps that we’ve released this year.”

Unlikely Suspects also features a fun Easter Egg for players to discover, as well as a Detective Training Mode and an Unlimited Hidden Object Mode.
