Product description

Amazon.com

In this interactive mystery game, girls play as teenage supersleuth Nancy Drew, called upon to help a friend renovate a beautiful Victorian mansion. But there's trouble afoot ... from collapsing scaffolds to leaking gas, suspect fires to ghostly threats, Nancy is about to stumble onto a secret that someone--living or dead--would rather keep unknown. Follow your hunches as you explore a fully interactive three-dimensional mansion filled with peepholes, trapdoors, and hidden passageways. Interview fellow guests, poke around dusty nooks, and uncover cryptic messages. Clues, dead-ends, and trickery abound. Created especially for girls ages 10 and up, Nancy Drew features two "spy IQ" levels of difficulty, more than 20 hours of gameplay, helpful hints if you need them, 3-D graphics, and much more.

Review

Will Nancy uncover what's behind the series of accidents at the creepy Victorian mansion her friends are restoring into a bed and breakfast? Why is the clock in Nancy's room set at 8:30 a.m. and the alarm set for 9 a.m.? What does the arcane inscription, "When the 10 daughters are reunited in order . . .," on the tapestry mean? Will Abby's séance reveal the secrets of the haunted mansion? And why are the "spirits" in the house interested especially in Nancy? These and other mysteries begin to unfold with the opening scene in the third of these remarkable Nancy Drew interactive role-playing games that put players right in the middle of trying to solve another classic Nancy Drew case. Fans of Nancy Drew books step into their young heroine's shoes as she investigates the mansion's various rooms in search of clues. Especially compelling software for pre-teen and early teenage girls, this 3-D cyber-mystery is totally from the first-person detective perspective-doing everything from unlocking creaky doors, jimmying secret bed-post knobs, questioning suspects and witnesses, calling cohorts on the phone, and collecting evidence to build a case. But not without some help: The short interactive tutorial will get newcomers started right, the magnifying-glass cursor turns red when passing across a clue or a direction worth taking, and the ever-present help icon saves the day if players get stuck. Graphics and animation is dramatic and realistic. The voices, spooky background organ music and special effects are crisp and fun. But the evolving storyline is the star of the software--except for Nancy, that is. A 2000 Parents' Choice® Gold Award.
