Murder Mystery Place Review

Unless you've been living under a rock you've probably noticed that Murder Mystery by Nikilis has recently shot up to the front page. At the time of this review the place has gotten 773,354 visits and has been the most popular game on ROBLOX for the past few days. The game updates frequently, so the version I am reviewing is version 0.2.5b.

Gameplay 8/10
The gameplay is really quite simple. There are three different teams. The civilians, the sheriff, and the murderer. The murderer's goal is to, of course, murder everyone in sight. The sheriff's goal is to shoot and kill the murderer. The civilian's goal is to find out who the murderer is and, basically, stay away from the murderer. Civilians are also able to pick up the sheriff's gun should he fall victim to the murderer's blade. Since no one knows who the murderer is at first the game can be quite hectic with people being incredibly suspicious and pointing blame at people for no apparent reason and confusing the sheriff. If the murderer dies or time runs out, the civilians win. If everyone but the murderer dies, the murderer wins.
Effort 7/10
The big problem I have with this game is the maps. The maps are all either copied from popular ROBLOX places like Crossroads, Chaos Canyon, and others, or they're relatively bland and easily built areas. The maps need to be about 20% cooler.
Creativity 9/10
I've seen a few games that are similar to this type of play (Trouble in ROBLOX Town, Deception Infection, ROBLOX Ultimate Assassin) but this one is different enough to pass the creavity test.
Overall 8/10

  • The shop could use some more work
  • Maps that are less bland
  • More game modes
  • A deputy with a tazer perhaps?
  • Have a unicorn horn knife in the shop that grants the murderer magical powers.
If you want your place reviewed, or know a good place, simply contact Banjobug with a short message. Please don't stalk me. Also, if you find a really awful place that is somehow on the front page, don't hesitate to ask me to review it. It should prove humorous for both of us.
