Diner Dash Series Moves to Mystery Genre with New Game

PlayFirst has announced that DinerTown Detective Agency, which brings the company's popular Diner Dash series into the mystery genre, will be available to PlayFirst PlayPass members on Tuesday, June 23, with general availability two days later.

The game features 25 cases to be solved by Bernie the Bookworm, who receives help from Flo the waitress and other recurring Diner Dash characters. Players travel to 20 new locations as they try to figure out who's sticking their fingers in jelly donuts, or who is ordering pizzas to someone's house. The resolutions of those problems point to a much bigger mystery afflicting DinerTown.

System requirements call for Mac OS X version 10.4, an 800MHz G4 processor, 256MB RAM, and 50MB available hard drive space.
