I recently purchased “Safecracker” because I love to play mystery games – but I have to say that I was a bit disappointed when I began playing it, as it wound up being merely a game of puzzles, without all the intrigue & finding of inventory items along the way.
Having said that, I do realize that some people really like the “logic puzzles” that are generally a part of most mystery games, and I do too, but this was just one puzzle after another, without all of the other “stuff” I’ve come to enjoy.
In “Safecracker”, you play an expert safecracker whose been hired by the family of an extremely wealthy deceased man (Duncan Adams) to find his will. It turns out that Duncan was quite eccentric, and his hobby was buying & building unique safes to house his valuables. Your job is to solve the puzzles & figure out how to open more than 30 safes in a quest to find the will.
The difficulty level for these puzzles ranges greatly, with some being really easy, and others being extremely difficult. I had to reference a “hints” site several times, and found UHS Hints to be the most comprehensive & easiest to understand.
Overall, I found this game to be a bit tedious. However, I would highly recommend it to anyone who really enjoys solving these types of puzzles. How much you like this game really all comes down to personal preference…

Unlike the two reviews before mine I actually enjoyed this game.
This is an mystery/puzzle game that revolves around your safe cracking abilities; abilities that depend on your skills in mathematics, logic and observation.
Most of the puzzles (with a little bit of thought) were fairly easy to solve; however, I had to refer to a walk through for a couple of answers (only to say “of course” when shown the way to proceed).
All in all, a fun game that was about worth the asking price. 3 1/2 -4 Stars.

This is a new game called Safecracker not the older one from a few years ago. I found this game interesting and with great graphics. As you work the puzzles and move to a new safe you can also move into a new room. The safes are on the ground floor, 2nd floor, attic, basement and secret room. I had a lot of fun playing it and working the puzzles.
