Judge Dee - The City God Case is a hidden object puzzle game, similar to Interpol: The Trail of Dr. Chaos, whereby you have to find hidden objects to solve a case in a city somewhere in medieval China. After the ShizHangs Son is taken ill everyone believes it to be a vengeful City God and you as the magistrate/detective have to find out why. As usual you stumble across the usual suspects for these type of games, throw in some puzzles (Game of Go, Tangram, Memory, Dou Shou Qi, Jigsaw) and you have a short but relatively fun game.


Step 1: Play the game

There isn't not a lot to say here really. All except 2 of the trophies are story related so just play it and they will come naturally. Difficulty doesn't matter so play through on Easy if you like, Easy gives you more hints and makes the puzzles easier, Average is, well, Average and Hard makes puzzles harder and also gives you a time limit to complete them in

As you can interview people etc. in various orders, your playthrough might be different to mine but overall it shouldn't really effect the other that trophies pop in.

Completing the game should net you the following trophies:

Psychology expert
Interrogation expert
Handicraft expert
Secret passages expert
Information expert
Imperial prosecutor
Crafty magistrate
Enlightened magistrate
Wise investigator
Master of secrets
Imperial doctor
Master of truth
Poison expert

Step 2: Cleanup

There are two missable trophies in this game, you may have missed them, you may have got them during your first playthrough. If you got them then well done but if you didn't then it's back to the game for you. Fear not though as it won't take long as you can press to skip all the conversations and just get the trophies you need.

After this step the two trophies you will have are:

Gallant investigator
Generous magistrate

As well as an easy 100%.
