Detective Solitaire: Inspector Magic and the Forbidden Magic:

In Brief:
Detective Solitaire: Inspector Magic and the Forbidden Magic has never been given away before. As the name implies it's a solitaire card game with a theme of solving crimes. We've had several of these games from 8Floor over the last few years, all of them with the same game mechanic. They are a pleasant distraction for a few hours; worth downloading especially if you enjoy playing solitaire games. The graphic is colourful and the game is introduced with a simple tutorial to walk those of you who've not played this type of game before through the basics. Thankfully the tutorial can be skipped if you wish.
You can see a few videos of game play HERE, HERE HERE, and one via the Steam store page HERE.

You can also see some Steam community reviews of the game HERE, Big Fish Community members feedback HERE .

There are twelve packs that cover various stages of solving the crime; for example, Crime Scene, The Manor, First Clues, Secret Hideout, Victims Home, Empty Room, Dark Mystery's Answer solved. Each pack contains ten levels making a total of 120 levels to work through. There are trophies such as Final Sentence where you are awarded 10000 points for passing all the levels in Newbie mode, Revealed Secret where you are awarded 20 000 points for getting the maximum points in 6 packs in Professional mode, Irrefutable Proof awards 1000 points for getting maximum points on a level, Witness Statement earns 10000 points for earning hundred thousand coins as well as seventeen other awards which you can see via the main menu.
We've had quite a dew of these solitaire games, with exactly the same mechanics e.g. Solitaire: Legend Of The Pirates 3 (23rd Oct 21), Mystery Solitaire: Cthulhu Mythos (8th Aug 21), Solitaire Victorian Picnic 2 (31st July 21), Mystery Solitaire: Grimm's Tales (17th July 21), Detective Solitaire: Butler Story (7th Feb 21), Solitaire Jack Frost Winter Adventures (3rd Jan 21), Mystery Solitaire: The Black Raven (17th Oct 20) and more; as well as others with similar game play e.g. Solitaire Game: Halloween (30th Oct 21), , Dreamland Solitaire (15th Aug 21), Solitaire Mystery: Four Seasons (7th Aug 21). The only thing that changes for most of these games is the story or the graphics. Still, if you enjoy solitaire, this one is worth downloading.
The following images show the initial stages of game play, detailing all the tutorial sections that explain the various mechanics of the game. I though this would be a better way that trying to describe each stage.

Notes on Security

I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found 4 hit/s (VBA32 & MaxSecure, Jiangmin & BitDefenderTheta) from 59 antimalware engines. These four represent just under 7% of the antimalware engines used to check this game and are amongst only several antimalware suites that often tag Toomky Games compared to most better known and more reliable antimalware engines, so it's very likely to be a false positive.

The downloaded executable 'may' include some low level adware that opens your browser to TooMKY Games home page after the game has installed and may place some shortcuts onto your desktop; these can be safely deleted once the game has installed. That said, the installation DOES NOT inject any malware into your system. When your browser is opened to TooMKY Games home page following the games installation, it earns Toomky Games some money, part of which is given to the developer of the game for allowing the game to be given away free. The giveaway version of Toomky games version has had most of the low level adware disabled.

You can see the results of the scan via the following link:

Personally I've never had any issues with any of Toomky Games.; however, If you're still not convinced of the games efficacy and want to be absolutely sure that the game is safe to install, please use a sandbox program first, to check that the game is safe to install before installing it to your C drive or other drives on your computer (assuming you have more than one drive - you can always partition your single drive to make two drives).

There are free sandbox programs such as Sanboxie, GeSWall, BitBox, Windows Sandbox, Bufferzone (a six month commercial license was given away via the applications side of the project back in December 2009 HERE), Shadowzone, as well as others. (You'll find them all on the same page from Techwhoop.

Good game! Don't forget to temporarily turn off your firewall before installing!

Oh how fun! I remember having games like this from several years ago, but hadn't replaced them since *new* system (Win 10 replaced Win 7; I liked 7 better). Thanks, all!

Again Avast blocked this because of IDP.HEUR.25 ... Did this on last game ... what do I do???

There are three things you can try. First and quickest is to temporarily turn off your security. The second is to white list the giveaway with your security and the third is to reboot in safe mode with network, install the game, then reboot as normal.

I've never had any issues with Toomky games. Nothing is injected into your system.

unruly, FWIW, Googled IDP.HEUR.25, getting 7k hits -- the 1st page seems to indicate that warning is a bit of a habit for Avast.

I can't sleep due to a back issue so I'm checking out the giveaway late at night as I look forward to these games on Saturday. I noticed that 8Floor who is the developer of these games have different kinds of solitaire themes The game is easy on the eyes and it is actually a refreshing change than what I previously played on Pogo. It seems Steam sells these games online in which I notice they go on sale fairly often for cheap. Unlike the previous Solitaire game last week I am noticing somewhat of a lack of story line in this game but it's enjoyable nonetheless.
