Criminal Minds: The Mobile Game Cheats and Tips

Android, iPhone/iPad
Last Updated: by Dennis

Criminal Minds: The Mobile Game is based on the long running CBS TV series that follows a team of behavioral profilers who work for the FBI as members of its Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU). The game puts you at the centre of a series of murder scenes and with the help of the BAU team, which comprises of agents Rossi, Prentiss, Reid, J.J., Garcia, Lewis, Alvez, and Simmons you must analyise the crime scene and look for clues that will help you capture the serial killer before they can strike again.

Cheats, Tips and Strategy

Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include how to get extra points, complete tasks faster and level up agents. As well as these hints and tips we also have a mini-guide here which goes into more details on some of the tips we have below:

Use Different Agents

Remember that each of the Agents will anaylise the crime scene differently so you need to make sure you experiment with the different Agents when looking at evidence so you don't miss a clue.

Extra Points

You will be able to score extra points by completing multiple Tasks in a row before their timers run out. Completing chapters quickly so time remains on the timer will also enable you to score extra points. The more time left on the clock - the more bonus points you will earn. You will be able to perform most Tasks faster by tapping and holding them.

Unique Skills

Each of the Agents has a unique skill that provides a certain benefit to the team. Always try to take advantage of these skills whenever possible so you are able to optimise your strategy and score.

Complete Minigames

There are certain pieces of evidence that when you anaylise and interact with by zooming in you activate a minigame which when you complete will help you uncover the truth.

Garcia Coins

The Garcia Coins are in the lower left corner of the 'Level Select' screen, this is the coin icon that looks like a revolver chamber with Penelope standing behind it. Tapping this icon will take you to a decorations menu where you can use the coins you earn during the game to purchase various cute decorations for Penelope's desk. Some are cheap, such as the cactus and the sunflower, while some are extremely expensive.
