The player acts as a detective to solve murders, locating relevant clues at crime scenes by clicking items in the scene. Rapid clue location is rewarded with greater scores; the player earns Stars that can later be used as a type of currency for performing tasks such as examining evidence and interrogating suspects. During this process, the player will also have to come across necessary autopsies and analyses that may take a few real-time hours to complete.

After reaching the requirements, the player must reason who the killer is from one of the suspects, eventually proceeding to the next case afterwards.

There are also puzzle elements to the game, such as puzzle-style hidden object scenes that must be unscrambled and few simple click-and-drag activities (dubbed "forensic mini-games") to add some more variety to the player's routine. Other additional content include purchasing police dogs and customizing the player's avatar using in-game currencies, obtaining collectibles, utilizing special power-ups, etc.

There are also various progression features integrated into the game. The most relevant of these is the energy meter; energy (symboled with a lightning bolt) is necessary to investigate crime scenes.
