The verdict:

9 Clues: The Secret Of Serpent Creek is a great game that allows you to play for hours on end without getting bored. The game is designed in a way that is pleasing to the eye and allows you to play for a long time. The game has a great potential, and I absolutely love the concept of the game. I just hope that the developer somehow reduces the size of the game in future so that people will not think twice before downloading this game on their devices. In the size department, the game loses points.

I rate this game a 4 out of 5.
