About this game

Round up the usual suspects—the mean girl, the new kid, the bully, the nerd, maybe even your best friend! As the sixth grade detective, you'll spy on classmates for cash—will you keep their secrets or take the money?

"Sixth Grade Detective" is a 109,000-word interactive young-adult novel by Logan Hughes, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Match wits with the criminal masterminds of middle school! Solve mysterious disappearances and thefts, trace rumors, track down your best friend's stolen bike, and most importantly—get a date to the dance.

Forge friendships, chase down thieves, or stick to your guns against bullies? Unmask them in public, or work behind the scenes to help a new friend? Will you protect the reputation of your clients, destroying evidence, or go so far as to hack your friend's cell phone to uncover his embarrassing secret?

• Investigate six mini-mysteries.
• Search for clues, question suspects, crack codes, dust for fingerprints, interview witnesses, and uncover your classmates' deepest secrets.
• Reveal the truth, or keep silent for the greater good… or greater profit.
• Shine in the classroom or cut school with the rebels.
• Lie to the adults--if you can get away with it
• Build friendships, create enemies, and find a date for the big dance.
• Play as a girl, boy, or neither. Date classmates of any gender, or avoid romance altogether.
• Find out who your secret admirer is!

Totally recommend!!! It's a Cute Story, I had fun playing it; Detective stories are So Great! I love Detective stories but usually have a hard time with them, this one was enjoyable, had me thinking a few times. I really liked the character A.J, he was a great friend to Marco(MC) so I made sure to keep their friendship strong, they were so cute. I managed to score 300$, I expected we were going to buy our Bike at the end, if I'd known I wouldn't have had his classmates pay for his services.

Cute game! I thought it might be a good story to introduce my son to interactive fiction, but with the romance plot line, I think he's just a couple years too young to get it. It'd be perfect for a middle schooler to read! Nice job. :)

An excellent example of interactive fiction which I've always enjoyed. This is well written with meaningful choices. I'm trying to get my kids to try some IF and this was a perfect place to start.
