"A member of the Dietary Movement was assaulted and Sam Lowry asked me to find the culprit."


Sam Lowry: Detective! something terrible happened! My colleague from the Movement was beaten up!

Detective: Wait, slow down. What movement are you talking about?

Sam Lowry: The dietary Movement. We support mayor Covet and the sugar ban and that's why Josef got attacked! Now other members are scared. I need this sorted out, fast.


Detective: Ok, Josef. You'll need to tell me exactly what happened. Can you identify the culprit?

Josef Novak: I don't think so. It was dark, and he got me by surprise. He just started beating me up, without saying a word...

Detective: So how do you know the attack was related to the Movement?

Josef Novak: Isn't it obvious? Most thugs have a sugar habit of some kind. Soda pop, jelly beans, muffins, all of that.

Detective: All right. But I still need something to identify the thug. I'll just look around for witnesses.

  • 2 photos
  • 2 fingerprints
  • 2 maps
  • 2 photos
  • 1 fingerprint
  • 2 maps
  • 2 photos

If you fail:

Detective: Looks like the attack was well planned and there were no witnesses nearby.

If you win:

Detective: Hmmm. I've gathered the eye-witness statements. People seem to recall the same face. Martin Tucker. I know that thug.

City search: RatholeEdit

Detective: I need to find Tucker. Word on the street is that he's hiding somewhere in this area. Tucker probably has a difficulty finding a place to sleep after being released from jail.

Tucker's hideout is:

  • exactly 3 from a club
  • in the distance of 1 from railways
  • more than 3 from a barber
  • more than 2 from a shop
  • more than 1 from a warehouse
  • more than 2 from the train station
  • On the map there are 3 clubs

Supposedly there are candies in (10,4), (4,1)

Solution: (5,7)

If you fail:

Detective: He's hiding well. I won't be able to find him that easily.

If you win:

Detective: Squatting on a construction site? How low can you get!

Crime scene search: Hazardous SquattingEdit

Detective: I guess he has a den somewhere around here. I should find something giving me Tucker's motive.

Prohibitionist peril solution and cash

If you fail:

Detective: I can't find Tucker's things. Maybe he already ran away.

If you win:

Detective: What's this? It looks like Tucker was paid to rough up Josef. I think i should wait for Tucker and confront him about this.

Suspect identification: What Goes Around, Comes Around.Edit

Martin Tucker: Oh, darn, what are you doing here? I don't want to go back in jail!

Detective: You shouldn't have attacked the Dietary Movement member, then.

Martin Tucker: It was a set up, I swear! It's not my fault!

Detective: Just tell me who hired you and maybe I'll be more understanding.

Solution: Josef Novak

If you fail:

Detective: I see. Well, that makes sense, in a way. I need to confront Novak.

If you win:

Detective: Josef ordered the attack on himself? I hope you're not lying, or...

Martin Tucker: It's true, I swear! After I was released from the slammer, Josef found me and said I'll work for him or he can make me go back on a parole violation.


If you fail:

Detective: I'm sorry, Sam. I won't be able to solve the case for you.

Sam Lowry: That's very, very bad! Some members of the Movement signed out when they heard somoene attacked Josef! It's a disaster!

If you win:

Detective: The jig is up, Novak. I know you hired Tucker to stage a fake assault. The question is, why did you do it?

Josef Novak: Can't you see? I wanted to become a martyr for the cause! It was the only way to turn people away from sweets and gain support for the sugar ban!

Detective: Oh, you'll become a martyr all right. In jail!. I'm sure there are a lot of folks behind bars who'll want to confront your ideas.
