Admittedly, a case of deceased plant life might not strike you as the most exciting story. But some pacing issues aside, give it a chance and don’t get spoiled. The discussions it leads to and the puzzles stemming from it might surprise you. Much like its title character, Detective Gallo is a game that manages to grow on you and is a pretty easy purchase for genre fans.

Detective Gallo is a charming and beautifully drawn comic point and click, but it’s the controls which stop it from scoring higher. It relies too heavily on dragging a cursor back and forth, and there’s a fair bit of in-game backtracking too.

Although quite rough around the edges, the sheer amount of love and care present in Detective Gallo warrants at least one playthrough. With a surprisingly strong voice cast, coupled with an appropriately moody atmosphere, with a jazzy soundtrack and cartoony visuals, the point-and-click adventure is able to craft an identity all of its own, even if it isn't particularly unique in regards to its genre.
