Cases (sometimes also referred to as "Episodes") are the mission structure of Criminal Case.
In Criminal Case, every time a murder occurs, a murder case must be filed in the police force database.
A case, or an episode, always begins with a short cutscene. In this cutscene, the player finds out about the murder from the chief of police or a witness and heads to the murder scene with their partner. Alternatively, the player and their partner head to a location, only to find out a murder has happened there. Either way, the cops find clues in the murder location to search other crime scenes, find more clues, interview different suspects, and carefully analyze evidence to finally incriminate the killer.
Criminal Case features 56 cases in Grimsborough with 59 additional cases in Pacific Bay (not counting Welcome to Pacific Bay, which serves strictly as an introductory tutorial and is not acknowledged by the game as a proper case) and 56 more in the World Edition, totaling 171 cases. There are 60 cases planned for Mysteries of the Past, making it 231 cases overall.
