What’s up when a millionaire named Phil T. Rich goes missing?

I’d be tempted so say that he was whacked for having a silly name. However, when the suspects include an actress named Emmy Daynow, an Italian chef named Manny Cotti and clock nut named Justine Time, the mystery has to go much deeper. Or perhaps not.

You can look into the case for yourself with "Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir," an E-rated seek-and-solve game by Big Fish Games for the Nintendo DS.

During your investigation, you’ll visit each suspect and examine several screens packed with all sorts of odd junk. You’ll be asked to find several items, sometimes in plain view and sometimes needing a flashlight or X-ray machine.

After you find most of the items on your search lists, you play a little mini-game that concludes the investigation for that person. After you’ve found all of the clues for all the suspects, you can solve the case.

You can also play quick games outside of the campaign or play seeing games with up to four of your friends.

The game offers hints for the unobservant — as well as the ability to ratchet up the difficulty by activating a time limit on searches. But it’s still not a difficult game.

Hard-core gamers — or even medium-core DS fans — are likely to find the game a little slow and silly.

However, kids and those who still enjoy finding Waldo are likely to find it addictive.
