If I were to describe Another Case Solved, I’d be soon left without superlatives. It is indeed an amazing game and one that’s really difficult to beat especially later on. So I’ve decided to create this article filled with Another Case Solved cheats: actually a set of tips & tricks and a game guide that will help you get the 3 star ratings on all cases and fail as few as possible.
And since being a detective is not that easy, let’s jump straight into action with our Another Case Solved tips and cheats!
1. Collect as many pieces during the match three game
There are two different types of items you can collect during the match three game in Another Case Solved: the basic ones (like footprints, question marks and so on) and the special ones, like evidences (maps, fingerprints and so on). You can’t have too many of each, so try to collect as many – start with huge chains of clues to reward you with more Evidence. Then try to collect evidence only when you have rows available, otherwise you will basically waste moves. This is easier said that done, so make sure to use your skills and tools to help you achieve that goal. Not to mention the fact that the more you have at the end of the case, the bigger your bonus.
2. Check out the upcoming requirements
You can’t progress on the match three board if you reach a suspect and don’t meet the item requirements. In that case, make sure to always look up on that bar and see what requirements are coming. If the suspects are already on the top bar, the items you collect will count even if you haven’t reached them. If they are not, you will only see the icon of the Clues of Evidence required and you should try not to remove that from the board to make things easier for when the suspects appear.
3. Unlock Skills, Tools and replenish them
Fortunately, you can purchase all skills and tools (and get extra uses) for in game bucks, the basic currency that you earn from completing cases. Make sure you always fill them up and have them there to use for whenever you don’t have any other options. In many cases they saved my life in the game, so don’t be afraid to use them!
You have the option to replay an important case, so don’t worry about failing them. If the situation looks bad from start and you were not able to get enough evidence or clues to help you during the investigation, it’s better to drop the case and restart than waste valuable tools and money on it. Start fresh and hope to be lucky.
5. How to complete the Item Searching part
When you get to a house, searching for items, you will have a limited amount of time to find that item and a lot of places to explore. The secret here is to keep an eye on your “Intuition meter” which is right next to the room: the higher the green meter goes, the closer you are to finding the item. Whenever you get the “closer” message, it means you are getting close and moving into the right direction. A message like “Keep looking” means that you’re getting father, so move back to the previous place and try to get a “closer” message. As soon as you get to the right room, you will have to search through the items there. Either use a tool to search faster or use your instinct again to look for the item (since usually they are “hidden” in logical places – aka a report inside an envelope in a drawer).
6. Get new skills on the Pin Board
When you level up in Another Case Solved, you gain stars. These can be used to unlock new skills or tools and they can be extremely helpful. Make sure you check them all out and unlock the ones you feel you’ll need the most. It won’t be easy to get them all, so be very selective. Hint: Get the Squad Car Patrol and Interrogation skills first, they will really come in handy!
7. Don’t spend money on your looks
At first, it might seem that you get all the nice bonuses and goodies and you have all the money in the world. Which is not true, because many of the items you need are really expensive. So never invest money in changing your looks. Instead, spend them on replenishing your skills and power-ups and on getting new furniture.
8. What furniture to get
Since it’s pretty expensive, you should make sure that you only get the most useful furniture first. The Battered Cabinet would be a good starting point since you will earn more per case, and so will most of the “Basic Furniture” category items. The Phone is also really good since you can get candy for watching advertisements. Don’t get the Dressing Room furniture until you have a ton of money because they won’t really help you with the core game.
9. How to be successful at interrogations
It’s all about asking the right questions. Look at your suspects and ask questions that would eliminate the most people. Also have in mind that any additional question will cost 1 evidence more, so plan ahead. If in doubt, you can always eliminate suspects using power-ups.
