Gameplay

Ad3m found a clue

The game begins with the player starting a new job at Academy Headquarters. The player must take on cases to move up in rank. The player will move up one rank each time they solve two cases.

Each case has seven clues to find. Moving the mouse around the screen will uncover clues. The cursor will turn into a magnifying glass when a clue is located. The picture inside the magnifying glass indicates what type of clue it is.

Each clue leads to a gadget game. When the player successfully completes the gadget game, they'll obtain a clue which will be recorded in the case file.

Once the player has collected at least three clues, they can use the 'solve-it' button. Clicking this button allows the player to choose the solution to the mystery. If the player's choice is correct, they will have solved the case. If the player chooses incorrectly, they must earn at least one more clue before they can use the solve-it button again.

Each game also has a feature called the 'Detective Styles Quiz'. This is similar to the JumpStart All-Stars quiz. The quiz is meant to gauge the player's personality and suggest the learning style that is best suited for them. When the quiz is done, it will tell what the player what their primary and secondary styles are.
