In-depth Review

Frog Detective 2 is a short silly game where players take on the role of The Detective (a frog) and try to help out a small town. Recently the parade they’ve set up to welcome their newest neighbor (an invisible wizard) has been destroyed! By talking to the members of the town and helping them out, the player can deduce what happened and uncover the culprit!

In my opinion, the biggest feature of Frog Detective 2 is its silly characters and dialog. The game plays to its strength by sometimes having the main character point out with others are being illogical or going along with it in ridiculous ways. The setting is light-hearted and lets the goofiness of the characters seem natural.

The story is short and the gameplay poses no challenge. There are two possible endings but given the lack of ability to make many meaningful decisions other than the final one, it’s not really worth the effort to see both since the whole story would have to be played again. Although a completionist player could run through the game again in less than an hour.

One of the cutest parts of the game was when the player got their own notebook. The notebook is a key item for recording what characters say during the player’s discussions with them. When it’s first given to the player, they can customize the cover with a number of fun goofy stickers. I thought this was pretty cute and a good reminder of the seriousness of the game before diving into the case.

My masterpiece

The ending of Frog Detective 2 implies the series will be continued with a 3rd game subtitled “Corruption at Cowboy County”. Given the enjoyableness of this game, I look forward to its release and hope to go back and play the first game in the Frog Detective series before then.

Recommendation

Overall, I found Frog Detective 2: The Case of the Invisible Wizard to be a short silly game with goofy characters and dialog. The game was very easy and had a choice of two endings, but given how guided the player was I wasn’t interested in replaying it to see the other ending. I recommend Frog Detective 2 for players looking for a silly story over hard detective work.
