Product Description

Product Description

As Nancy Drew, you'll have to expose an ominous threat! TV's hottest soap star, Rick Arlen, is receiving threatening letters, and it's up to Nancy to get to the bottom of them. Great for individual play or for sleuthing with Mom, Sis or friends!


In Stay Tuned for Danger, the lead actor on Light of Our Love is receiving frightening threats. It's up to you, as Nancy Drew, to find the perpetrator before it's too late. You'll have to go undercover as an extra on the show to expose the sinister scoundrel!

Enter the game, and you see the world through Nancy Drew's eyes. As you explore the detailed 3-D surroundings, you meet incredibly lifelike characters who all have a secret to hide. It's up to you to crack the case by piecing together information from conversations, mind-twisting puzzles, hidden messages, and other clues you uncover along the way. And if you get stuck, you can always call Nancy's best friends for helpful hints and additional clues.

If you loved Secrets Can Kill, we know you'll love Stay Tuned for Danger, the second in the Nancy Drew interactive mystery series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Knew? I'm Hooked on Nancy Drew! December 10, 1999
Format:Video Game
I realize that the software geniuses at HerInteractive originally created the Nancy Drew mystery games for girls...but, uh...even though I'm over 30, I just can't help myself! Stay Tuned for Danger is completely amazing! It's such a thrill to pretend you're Nancy Drew and try to think like a master detective. There's endless puzzles to solve and clues to look for. But watch out for mind-boggling twists, turns and surprises--they'll keep you occupied for hours! You truly have to see the dynamite 3D graphics to believe it! Each room you enter is designed and decorated with exquisite detail. You'll also love the music and captivating dialogue between the characters. Beware of only one thing: you may get hooked! Everyone will LOVE this game! (I'm trying to tear my husband away from it as we speak...he's been playing the game now for 8 straight hours!)

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome game December 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
This computer game has a such a wonderful environment to explore! I wish there was more of it! The 3-D animated characters are a nice improvement over the 2-D animation in "Secrets Can Kill". The puzzles are fun, and the game play is addictive. This game is a little bit tougher than the last game...you really have to hunt for those clues. "Stay Tuned" is perfect for anyone who loves a good mystery. It's a refreshing alternative to the blood, gore and evil in the popular software games today. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleuthing isn't easy, but it sure is fun! January 24, 2001
Format:Video Game
This is the second game in the Nancy Drew software series that I've tried (I've also played "Message In a Haunted Mansion"), and this was by far the more difficult of the two. In this game, Nancy is staying with a soap star, Mattie, whose on-screen co-star, Rick, has been receiving death threats. It's up to Nancy to find out who is behind them. The game requires not only patience but a smart mind; you have to remember things and write down clues, solve puzzles, and plan things accordingly. Although I enjoyed playing it, it was frustrating at times, and one time, I spent several hours thinking I was stuck, because I had not noticed the arrival of an important new object. (Boy did I feel silly when I finally noticed it!) This game will take you many hours to complete. For fans of the older Nancy Drew books, there's an added bonus -- the games feature objects from the books (look for the clock from "The Secret of the Old Clock", with the crescent on the top!) and other little fun things like that. I want to offer two hints that I think will be helpful: #1, pay attention to the chair in Mattie's house, near the phone. #2, explore all rooms **thoroughly**. You will pick up many objects during this game, and all will either be important, or finding them will just advance the game. You may need to explore rooms two or three times to find everything. Also, if after you've installed this game (or Message In A Haunted Mansion), you get an error message that the game can not locate a Direct Draw Surface, and you KNOW your computer meets all the system requirements, make sure your hardware acceleration is set to FULL.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mysterious Adventure! August 5, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Nancy Drew's Stay Tuned for Danger is a challenging and fun game for everyone! I was a tad skeptical when I saw the age rating (10 years and older), but the game proved that completely wrong! The word puzzles are a bit difficult to solve, but once you figure them out, the mystery is a cinch to solve. Rick Arlen, a soap heartthrob on the soap opera, Light of Our Love, is reciveing threatening letters from a lunatic "fan" and Nancy Drew is on the case. The graphics are so realistic, they look like photographs. There are hundreds of close-up graphics that offer no development to the case, but are just there for you to enjoy. The sound is crystal-clear and the music adds emphasis to the spooky situations Nancy can get into. A great feature is the "Second Chance". If you have made a fatal mistake during gameplay, you will be brought to the main menu and continue the game just as if you had never made the mistake. Installment is very simple, and it only takes ten minutes. The usability is wonderful and I had no problems with it at all. Her Interactive has come up with a great game that people of all ages can enjoy. This game is truly worth the thirty dollars and I highly recommend to anyone who loves mysteries and a good way to boost your logic points!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Game December 18, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
I can't believe that I am in my own house sometimes when I am playing this game. I makes me feel like I am there in Nancy Drews house or in the game. I feel like I am walking from room to room and really opening things. I love to read everything and then solve the clues. I is fun to write everything down and then it all is useful later even when you think its not really anything as far as a clue. I love this game I really like finding the clues and talking to the characters in the game. Her interactive you are wonderful.....thank you thank you for making this game. Please keep making them, I am just waiting for the next one to come out...Thank You
