This was by far an outstanding mystery game, for adventure gamers of all types!
Characters: All the same characters of the book are present in this game, as well as a new 11th character, whom you play as, Patrick Narracott. All the characters start out in the town of Sticklehaven and then are shipped over to the famous "Shipwreck Island" after the bad weather, and a misfortunate event, Narracott is forced to spend the rest of the night with the guests. And, later you find that he is unable to leave the island. Then, the guests sit down for dinner, and you are left to investigate.
The Island: Shipwreck Island is massive. Complete with orchards and an apiary, and even a forgotten village, it is beautifully rich in color. Of course, in front of everything is the gorgeous mansion. Of course with every old, spooky, mansion comes many rooms to explore. And of course secret passage ways, and such.
Plot: Following the rhyme of the 10 little sailor boys, each guest is marked to die, at least told by their infamous host, "Mr. Owen".
At the end of the night only 9 are left, and the next day 8. Each murder follows the dastardly occurence of each sailor boy in the ryhme.
End: The culprit was quite a surprise, not who I really would expect! What I loved was that I could play multiple endings, save certain people, and let certain die, all up to you!
Pros: The game is rich in plot, color, in detail. Ever second keeps you on the edge of your seat! The music is also very wonderfully, mysterious, and adds a great touch!
Cons: I know on my computer which is Windows XP, that some of the ingame movies were in slow motion. The cause is unknown, although it really wasn't a horrible deal.
Overall: I thought this game was wonderful!
My final grade is a definate: A
Great Job AWE GAMES and TAC for making an excellent game!
