THE CASE OF THE MISSING THING
The second STEVE THE SHERIFF game is excellent! Found items and parts of items are put into Bubbles that circle the required task on a site. You can ‘mouse-over’ the list of items to show their outline in HO sites. Some of these HOs are tiny which is a bit of a problem, but the graphics are good enough to help here. You collect cigars, which I was hoping would open the Unlimited Play, but they sadly don’t – it’s a good suggestion for the Game Designers as there are plenty of locations to facilitate this. there are also Bonus Game Bubbles to collect, but they don’t show for long so be quick to click on them.
A little FREDDI FISH in its nature, it is a fun game to play – entertaining and user friendly. I recommend it for all the family. I bought this game.

STEVE THE SHERIFF
This was the precursor of the above game, and consequently isn’t as good – it’s more basic. You collect cigars for Hints; use an magnifying glass by Right-clicking which is handy; and compare scenes a lot to find clues. It does offer Relaxed and Action modes whcih is good, but the Graphics are fuzzy which is annoying. I did not buy this game.
