I see 2 Agatha Christie games, Peril At End House and Death on the Nile on Big Fish. Both of them show timers in the screenshots. Can either of these games be played in non-timed mode?

I do not believe you can play them untimed and I believe there were also limited hints.

Uncle Reg,

As I recall, the games are in sections. When you search a room, you have to find all the objects in that room in a certain amount of time. If you don't, you have to replay the room but not the whole game. It's been a while, but I think that's right.

That said, some of the objects were really hard to locate.

Gil.

Uncle Reg, Agatha Christie: 4:50 from Paddington is another Christie game available on Big Fish, and it offers both timed and untimed modes of play. You might want to check that one out. wave

Thanks, Marian. I have a free game coupon that's going to expire in a few weeks, and I'm going to take a chance on 4:50 from Paddington.
