Summary: Beautiful artwork. The only thing that kept me from giving this great game 5 stars is the timer. Even so, I've played this game through several times and have been completely charmed and engaged. Like reading the Agatha Christie books, the clues are subtle but the game always "plays fair" and doesn't shroud the objects in fog, dust or shadows.
Summary: I liked this game because I love mysteries. I did figure out who did it before the end. The graphics were very good. Some of the hidden objects could not be found without using a hint, which I hate to do. I would rather find everything without hints, but with the timer and the fact that some of the objects just didn't look like the discription, I had to submit and get a hint. Great game thought.
Summary: This could have been a fun game, but some of the hidden objects are awful. If run out of clues and have to resort to random clicking...and even when the object is revealed I find myself saying, "You've got to be kidding me," because I can't even recognize the object as it wings its way off the screen, then there is a problem for me with the game. This is supposed to be fun, with some challenge...
Summary: Very similar to the earlier game "Death On The Nile." Just like "Death On The Nile," some of the hidden object scenes in this one could use a "magnifying glass." Overall, I thought the item descriptions were a bit more straightforward (except when looking for a horse and the intent was "SEAhorse"). The timer can make you a bit panicky and the hints are stingy, but the graphics are nice and the background sounds are soothing.
Summary: Standard HOG with some inventive mini-puzzles, and of course the story is great. I read every one of Christie's mysteries and never once guessed the correct murderer. Graphics are clean & scenery is bright. If you like straight HOGs & Miss Agatha, you'll be well-pleased.
