The hilarious homicides are back in twelve all new minute mysteries for the Cultured Detective.

Different bodies, same game - pick out the particular reference in the story and apply it to one of the suspects. It’s that easy. (Or not.) Think of it as an especially murderous brainteaser. (Or don’t.)

As always, each whodunit features two hints and a built-in online search.



What the critics are saying -

“The Allusions are immensely enjoyable to read, whether I can solve them or not.”

-AppCraver (Editor’s Pick – Deadlier Allusions)

“Deadly Allusions is a fantastic game for friends and family and is definitely recommended!”

-AppReview (Rated Best)

“As a fan of riddles and puzzles that make the old grey matter start working, I loved this.”

-The Portable Gamer

“The game does challenge one's sense of historical and pop culture knowledge, and the most enjoyable aspect is the witty dialogue between the two characters that find the body.”


“The author of the mysteries is Sherban Young and he does an awesome job.”


“These are those ‘hidden gems’ from the App Store…”


“It’s really a bit of fun and well written.”

5/5 stars

The fun continues

As good as the first two batches. By the way, those reviewers who complained that "once you've solved the puzzle there is nothing more to do" missed the best part--asking your friends the puzzle!

5/5 stars

The hits just keep on coming.

Another great puzzle app; He said this would be his last puzzle app; I hope he changes his mind and does some more.

5/5 stars


My favorite out of the bunch. This one actually had some puzzles you can solve just by thinking them through, rather than trivia-based, which was a nice twist on the formula. If you enjoy these mysteries I'd recommend checking out the authors books, same funny style but with more meat. Pls release more games like this instead of the usual copycat stuff out there!
