If you want to know more explanation about the last puzzle or any puzzle - please post at Hints. Also, I will explain it more in the walkthrough.

What in the numbers in the book catalogue did you not understand? Please explain at Hints forum. I already edited the walkthrough for the last puzzle.

Hi smile

I just finished White Wolf and found it more fun than I had expected, considering the load of negative player comments I had read beforehand.
Certainly wasn't impressed by all the chores again, of course .... even though I set to and did them all. And can't think that teenage girls would be very keen either !!

Click to reveal..
Cooking for six people three times a day for several days was NOT fun especially when only ONE of those sessions was actually needed to progress in the game

And although I could equally well have done without the dratted arcade stuff, I did manage to get through that too crazy

So, after reading the slightly more favourable comments in this thread, I will no doubt cave in and buy the Crystal Skull game lol

Dreadful as to what lengths BAAGS can drive a person evil

Hi, Mad!

I really enjoyed "White Wolf" as well but, like you, could have done without cooking 3 meals a day. We had an extremely hot and dry Summer so all that snow helped to cool me off <VBG>!

"Crystal Skull" was shipped from InteractCD last Tuesday, so I'm looking forward to playing that when it arrives. We don't get any mail tomorrow because it's our Thanksgiving so, hopefully, it will show up in my mailbox either Tuesday or Wednesday.

If HI just HAS to include so many repetitive arcadey games in our favorite ND's why can't they build in a "cheat" like some games do so one can just get past it/them after about a thousand hand-crippling tries? and one has gone almost bald in frustration! Yeah, and what happened to the old notebook for notes and speculations about the storyline? Now it is just a couple of lists - totally useless (?)

After reading so many reviews on this game...
I for one will not buy or look to trade for any Nancy games, until HI goes back to the way it use to be...

If I want arcade games I will buy Pac man
If I want cooking chores I will buy Barbie games...

My Opinion

I dunno, the screaming boss in the Paris setting and the ridiculous tea making puzzle right at the start had my teeth so on edge,I ripped out the game and have been debating on them ever since....I think the chore thing may have gone a bit over...but I don't think updating the look is bad , and some of the little stuff is no different from other games...sigh...what to do ?

Geez Louise!

Am I one of the few who really enjoyed this adventure? I thought the puzzles and enigmas were wonderful and the game seemed to flow for me. I only saw one true arcade type puzzle, which I agree that the third time repeating it (according to the story line) became annoying... but then --- the subject matter of the puzzle would be annoying in reality.

I was happy that you get to play for a time as someone other than Nancy... and found the dialogue quite funny. I liked that there was no housework to perform.

I liked the game, too, inferno---and it had my favorite puzzle so far out of all Nancy Drew games I have played---and I have played almost all of them. smile wave

I thought the game was very good!

I've got it! Played a little bit of it so far and it is creepy! There's even a suggestion to play the game in the dark at the beginning, plus a warning from one of the characters.

I just found this game at Target last week-end, and am looking forward to playing it. I did about half of White Wolves and got fed up with the cooking chores (I hate to cook in real life, too) so I uninstalled it. I may go back to it someday.

The Crystal Skull seems like it has a much more spooky atmosphere, and as soon as I finish Deamfall TLJ (which I love, BTW) I'll get going with Nancy again.

I just finished this game and it was ok. I can hardly wait for my grandsons to play it and give me their opinion.
I like more searching for clues and less play this mini-game for a clue.
At least there were no slider puzzles or timed puzzles that is a Big Plus for me!

Yes, Melia, I agree with you about the skiball/toss-across game.
It was very sensitive.

The game I hated the most was the wasps. The more times you had to play it got harder and very tiring. I thought my hand would fall off LOL!

As for the coffee table game - it took me forever to figure how to do it (I kept trying to get the wrong piece to the end)so I was very happy it was not timed.

I have to say that this was the best Nancy Drew that I have played since Blackmoor Manor. It was a true, pull out your notepad and pen and slueth for clues game. I loved it! bravo

I'm really glad you liked it, Ana. I certainly thought it was a definite step in the right direction for Her Interactive. smile wave

Playing Crystal Skull & mainly enjoying it - but I had to get my son to do the lips to eyes pinball type game. Maybe after so many minutes they could give us a get out of jail free card with a solve this puzzle now option .......
When in doubt, cuddle a catcatrub

I thought the wasps were pretty cool, at least they didn't look life-like, unlike the nasty spider in the hole and the spider in the box! *shudder* I liked the skeeball game but it did remind me of the golf game in Secret of the Clock, you have to be very precise with your aim!
