Yes, my version of the program is in German. For a beginner, it might
be a bit complex to understand as there is much colloquial-style
German involved as far as I see. But you donīt have to write at all,
just tap and use some checkboxes (the game is indeed quite simple in
structure, but the murder cases can be very hard to solve - however,
there is a hint function).
I got mine from German Ebay. The game is stored on its own card
(which is not cool because you have to fuss with taking out another
card when you want to use it), and it cannot be copied. I paid the
equivalent of 10 or 15 dollars IIRC...
