Dead men tell no tales. Or do they?

Play Deadly Allusions: Puzzles for the Cultured Detective, and answer that question today. When you steep yourself in these trivia-themed minute mysteries, you become the sleuth, and you don’t even need to share room and board with Doctor Watson.

Think of Deadly Allusions as a murder-filled crossword puzzle without the squares. The object of the game is to pick up on the particular reference in the story and apply it to one of the suspects. Topics include history, literature, art, music, sports, movies, food, drink and word origins. Each whodunit features two hints and a built-in online search (for those times when your sidekick has let you down).

They’re fun. They’re educational. They have dead bodies in them.



What the critics are saying -

“The Allusions are immensely enjoyable to read, whether I can solve them or not.”

-AppCraver (Editor’s Pick – Deadlier Allusions)

“Deadly Allusions is a fantastic game for friends and family and is definitely recommended!”

-AppReview (Rated Best)

“As a fan of riddles and puzzles that make the old grey matter start working, I loved this.”

-The Portable Gamer

“The game does challenge one's sense of historical and pop culture knowledge, and the most enjoyable aspect is the witty dialogue between the two characters that find the body.”


“The author of the mysteries is Sherban Young and he does an awesome job.”


“These are those ‘hidden gems’ from the App Store…”


“It’s really a bit of fun and well written.”



If you like Deadly Allusions, then don’t miss Deadlier Allusions and Deadliest Allusions.

Also available - Dead Men Do Tell Tales, the complete collection in book form, published by Dover Publications.

Great puzzles; I try to solve one each while I eat breakfast. I tell all iphone users about the app so we can solve them together.

4/5 stars

Great app, a must have.

If you love logic puzzles, get this app. It is very similar to those. I would add a feature to track completed puzzles. Otherwise, great job!!
