How many games about Sherlock Holmes and where to find them

As a kid, when I was just getting to know Sherlock Holmes, after reading a few stories and getting to know the film adaptation with Livanov, I wondered if there were any games about the great detective. Of course, if Sherlock Holmes is the most screenable character, then there must be games too. However, it turns out that these games are not very popular, but for me, they are my favorite games.
This article is for those who want to play games about Mr. Holmes, but don't know how many there are and where to download/buy them. I'm going to go by the chronology of the SERIES of games released, as some studios have released entire series.

10. How many games about Sherlock Holmes?

1. Text AdventuresThe old

games for old operating systems and consoles, which you are unlikely to play. Most of the work is text, some do not even have pictures. No localization. But still, if you want to play, I think google or zavandexit enough, but be very careful! Do not download from untested sites! There may be viruses in the files!
Here is a list from wikipedia: 1. Sherlock (1984) (Philip Mitchell) (PC text adventure)
2. Sherlock Holmes: Another Bow (1984) (Bantam Software) (PC, Commodore 64)
3. Sherlock Holmes: The Vatican Cameos (1986) (Ellicott Creek) (PC, Apple II)

Sherlock Holmes: Consulting DetectiveThree

Sherlock Holmes games (+ a set of these three on DVD), but I haven't played them. No localization. Even though the game is old, I think people who know English would be very interesting to play. I think these games are very nice.1. Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective Vol. I (1992) (ICOM Simulations) (PC, Sega CD, TurboGrafx-CD)
2. Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective Vol. II (1992) (ICOM Simulations) (PC, Sega CD, TurboGrafx-CD)
3
.
Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective Vol. III (1993) (ICOM Simulations) (PC, Sega CD, TurboGrafx-CD)
4
.
Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective (1999) (Infinite Ventures) (DVD Player, interactive movie game)

You can download older versions on torrents

.


I recommend buying the updated version of the first part on Steam (in Steam it is split into 3 cases as separate games, and the other parts are not on Steam):
Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Collection3

.

The Lost Files of Sherlock HolmesTwo

good games, but there is a problem - hard to find on Windows.
1. Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Notched Scalpel (1992) (Mythos Software) (PC, 3DO - 1994)
2. Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Tattooed Rose (1996) (Mythos Software) (PC)
But anyone who knows how to use emulators will be able to play the games
.
The second game has a full Russian localization.

4. Sherlock Holmes: The Return of MoriartyQuest

from Buk, which I recommend NOT to play!
Reasons to want to play:
1. The voices of Livanov, Solomin, etc.
2. Locations.
3. Classical music.
Why you should not play:
1. Terrible plot.
2. Constant crashes.
3. "Deadlocks", ie, if you do something wrong, for example, not the character talked to, then go through the game is impossible, so if you play for the story, you have to print a sheet with the passage, and go through it, although, even so you can get into a "dead end".
4. Flickers part of the screen (Note: already made patch)
Sherlock Holmes: The Return of Moriarty (2000) (Buka Entertainment) (PC)
Easy to find on torrents

.


Who doesn't want to with all sorts of problems and "dead ends" can watch this silent walkthrough.

5. The Adventures of Sherlock HolmesThere

should now be games from Frogwares, but I'll be the last to talk about them.
Two children's and slightly weird Sherlock Holmes quests.
By the way, it's strange that in the Russian version the second part is the one in the original and vice versa (But it's not accurate).
1. Sherlock Holmes - The Case of the Vanishing Thief (2004) (gameX/Greenstreet Games) (PC)
2. Sherlock Holmes: The Case Of The Time Machine (2006) (gameX/Greenstreet Games) (PC)
Look for it on torrents.

6. The Lost Cases of Sherlock HolmesTwo

games of the "object search" genre. The developers were probably inspired by the games from Frogwares, at the beginning you can notice some similarities between them, but about that not today.
1. Sherlock Holmes. Unknown Stories (2008) (Legacy Interactive) (Mac, PC)
2. Sherlock Holmes. Secrets of Baker Street (2010) (Legacy Interactive) (Mac, PC)
Easy to download both on torrents and just download in your browser, the main thing is to type in a search engine.

7. Games based on Guy Ritchie moviesGames

based on Sherlock Holmes movies with Robert Downey Jr. The first on cell phones, the second on iPhones, iPods and iPads, the third on PCs (online).
The first two are based on "Sherlock Holmes (2009)" and the third is "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)
. Sherlock Holmes: The Official Movie Game (2009) (Gameloft) (cell phone game)
2. Sherlock Holmes Mysteries (2009) (Warner Bros.) (iPhone/iPod/iPad-2010)

.
Sherlock Holmes 2: Checkmate (2011) (Sticky Game Studios) (PC, Mac online game)

.

Games for iPhone/iPodNot

going to say anything about them because I don't have an iPhone or iPod.
1. Sherlock Holmes Trivia (2009) (Phoenix Venture, LLC) (iPhone/iPod)
2. Sherlock Holmes: The Game is Afoot (2009) (Mobile Deluxe) (iPhone/iPod)
3. Detective Holmes - Hidden Objects (2010) (Warelex) (iPhone/iPod)
4. Holmes (2011) (lukassen) (iPhone/iPod)

9.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Frogwares game series)

Finally we got to the best series of games about Sherlock Holmes!
A small Ukrainian studio was able to create real masterpieces!
1. Sherlock Holmes: Five Egyptian Statues (2002) (Frogwares) (PC)
2. Sherlock Holmes: The Silver Earring Mystery (2004) (Frogwares) (PC, Mobile, Wii, DVD)
3. Sherlock Holmes and the Secret of Cthulhu (2006) (Frogwares) (PC, iOS)
4. Sherlock Holmes v. Arsène Lupin (2007) (Frogwares) (PC)
5. Sherlock Holmes. The Mystery of the Persian Carpet (2008) (Frogwares) (PC)
6. Sherlock Holmes and the Secret of Cthulhu. Gold Edition (2008) (Frogwares) (PC)
7. Sherlock Holmes v. Jack the Ripper (2009) (Frogwares) (PC, X360)
8. Sherlock Holmes: Five Egyptian Statues (2009) (Frogwares) (Wii, Nintendo DS, iOS)
9. Sherlock Holmes vs. Arsène Lupin. Gold Edition (2010) (Frogwares) (PC)
10. Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of the House of Osborne (2010) (Frogwares) (Nintendo DS)
11. Sherlock Holmes. Hound of the Baskervilles (2011) (Frogwares) (PC)
12. The Last Will of Sherlock Holmes (2012) (Frogwares) (PC, X360, PS3)
13. Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of the Frozen City (2012) (Frogwares) (Nintendo 3DS)
14. Sherlock Holmes: Crime and Punishment (2014) (Frogwares) (PC, X360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4)
15. Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter (2016) (Frogwares) (PC, Xbox One, PS4)
Note: It's not thought to be 15, but - 12. And this list is so because "Sherlock Holmes and the Secret of Cthulhu" and "Sherlock Holmes vs. Arsène Lupin" have re-releases, and "Sherlock Holmes: Five Egyptian Figurines" PC and Nintendo DS (Wii, iOS) versions are two different versions of the game, they are not direct ports.
There are plenty of these games on torrents, but I recommend buying some, and if you want to buy all of them, you have to do it by the instructions:
