Kayo Games has launched PlayDetective: Heartbreakers, their detective
game, for Mac OS X. It puts you in the gumshoes of a private
investigator as he investigates a series of infidelity cases. Conduct
surveillance using a range of tools and gadgets, collect and analyze
evidence, and solve mind-bending puzzles.

Here’s how the game is described: “A wayward husband who can’t seem
to stay out of the clubs in the seedier parts of town? A girlfriend
who seems to be getting a little too close to her boss at work? Or
just a concerned wife who needs a little reassurance that her partner
only has eyes for her? It’s all in a day’s work for this detective.
Whether you take a direct approach and interview your suspects and
gauge their responses on your lie detector, Or just while away the
hours playing some classic games at your local casino while your
phone taps do your work for you, it’s down to you.”

With PlayDetective: Heartbreakers, you can investigate 15 unique
cases. You can eavesdrop using phone tapping devices or use your
camera and zoom lens to catch your suspects in the act.. You can
also: recover deleted text messages and piece them together to form
evidence for or against your suspect; conduct polygraph (lie
detector) tests during interviews; play a selection of classic
sub-games to earn cash that will aid you in your investigations; buy
and sell investigation gadgets; and confront suspects during the
tense moment when you catch them in the act with their lovers.
