Detective Gallo Launch Trailer
Detective Gallo has most of the telltale signs that this would be a great point-and-click adventure—on paper, anyway. The cartoonish art style, the dark sarcasm, (most of) the puzzles, and the unpredictable story all heavily suggest this game has the makings of a hit. It's unfortunate that a few bad eggs spoil the experience a smidge.
Detective Gallo is a point and click game that brings some interesting character interactions and plot, as well as a talented work of voice acting. This effort is only halfway there, though, as the control system is not ideally suited to the Nintendo Switch and the game's puzzles often make little sense, which contributes to make this a game that is not fully successful at its goals.

Overall, Detective Gallo is a great point and click game with little to dislike. It brings a solid story, some very likable and dislikable characters, and it does the point and click genre justice. The difficulty might be a bit too much for some, but the payoff is worth it.
