A body has been discovered. Collect and analyze the evidence, then determine the postmortem interval (PMI).

This movie requires Flash Player 9

  • Cody Spencer

    I did not care for this game too much. It was kinda boring because it did not offer much at all. One of the most non-educational games to play. Although, you do slightly learn something.

  • anonymous

    I completely disagree. This game was very good for the educational service it is providing. It’s not meant to be like an interactive “CSI” deal. It’s simply meant to teach that with the help of insects we can learn something important about a death, murder, homicide, etc. And it did exactly what the description claimed it would.

    Oh and saying it was “the most non-educational” game to play and then right after wards say you did learn something makes you look dumb.

  • Adasia V

    Bored… bored… Bored…. NEW GAME PLEASE!

  • rfearing

    Great intro to forensics and using entomology to solve crimes.

  • Nae

    this is whack

  • Mrs.De’Shae’

  • dr3@m

  • diamond

    *****this games was ok but it wasn’t fun either like for my learning ability!!!!!!! I would prefer that u make this game interesting so we can have fun with our learning!!!!!!!!*******

  • Jack

    Each to there own,l find this game was good..

  • Amber Cook

    While I, too, think the game could use a little refining so people can play more than once, with different outcomes, it DID do what it was supposed to do. I AM already in Forensics class & intend to use this site as one of my references.

  • aiysha

    i think u should treat the tiger right and friendly too.

  • katie

    that was a good game but kind of freaky ina mom is good at telling how long the body has been there and stuff she watches alot of science chanels.i was not graet at this game but i still liked is one of my favorits.

  • ashleigh

    it was good but i found it inconclusive????

  • Aaron Allen

    This activity was beautiful. Words just cannot express the way I feel about the things it taught me. The skills I learned today: I will utilize for the rest of my life. It was like having my first child.

  • anonymous

    I never really played the game, since my computer is slow, but I would like to know what it’s like.

  • Gavin Roman

    weres the challenge!!!!! seriously?

  • grant Y.

    i agree with cody spencer although if u dont Know much about forensic science this game could come in handy!!

  • girly

  • desiree torres

    this game was ok it would be better if it ahd more details to it

  • hannah

    i hate this game yall should go to cool math they have fun games

  • Troy Williams

    Hey whats up this game was a little short you know try to make it so you accually learn a thing or two.

  • Nero Travestire

    There really is no point in adding a “play again” button, if it’s always going to be the same crime scene, with the same evidence, and the same time of death… Add some variety people

  • Haley

    I didn’t understand. My computer didn’t let me go on to something else after I did the bug thing, did not care for this game very much…. new game anyone?

  • jojo

    wow…. enjoyed de game. can forensic entomologists be said to be legal eagles

  • Chris

    Maybe “game” isn’t the best term to use. It was just a little introductory exercise into forensic entomology.

    Just a head’s-up to those of you in high school – you will always be judged on how you write (and speak). So some of you who think it’s cute to just short-cut your words as if you’re texting, be sure you can actually write properly. Some of you might laugh at this, but just wait till your put on the spot to compose something for a job application and you start to doubt how well you spell and if your grammar is ever correct!

    Not everything in life is a fun X-Box game. Get over it if this was “boring” to you. At least you were doing something interactive.

  • le

    it was so borring it also only has one level the could have at least made two levels

  • blaah

    i feel the same way!! its just like a first child!!!

  • mmasbasj

  • Loquesha Tequan Smith

    this game y’all is tight yo. its like eating a pepper pie on a hot tuesday in june, dagnabbit

  • :P~~~C=====8

    i thought that this game was alright. only if there were different cases and possibly make the cases longer. i dont think that this game taught me much, after all, all we did was take bugs off a body and guess how many days it was there for.

  • Re::P~~~C=====8

    If you want longer cases similar to this, go to:
    the games there are quite educational and very well made

  • Enrobso Jones

    I will report all of you to the NRA for failure to tell the truth when commenting on this game. Obviously it is not fun. Obviously it has no point to it what so ever! All of you are so immature! This game is just bad. Period.
