You have a point Susan. Walmart and Target both have Nancy Drew continually in stock, so someone must be buying them.
I'll have to check-out HerInteractive's message board and read some different reactions.
I also read all the books as a child and was late to discovering the games, so I had one great year playing one ND game after another to catch up to the present.
For the past few years I haven't bought a game after trying out the demo's. Too many sandwich bars and arcades!

The Her Interactive forum is loaded with teen girls. The games are quite popular with them.

Hi, cassadaga!

The only Nancy Drew game I really disliked was "Ransom of the Seven Ships", although the twist at the end almost made it worthwhile lol !

Like you, I'm not thrilled that a lot of time in the newer games is taken up with chores and making meals instead of snooping around, but I still look forward to the next release. You might want to give "Warnings At Waverly Academy" a try because that was a good game but, based on your comments, you may not like "Trail of the Twister".

I really liked Treasure In The Royal Tower. That was one of my favorites. I tried to play the original Secrets Can Kill but had some kind of glitch with the game (don't remember what) and couldn't finish it. I will be interested in hearing how all of you like it.

I have been rushing out to buy the last few ND games and have been disappointed with them. The repetitive chores etc. have really been a drag. I was a HUGE Nancy Drew fan and still collect the books, so hope that the games get back into the mystery mode and less into the chores etc.

Of course, younger girls are their audience so, if they like it, we will have to put up with it.

i haven't played secrets can kill just yet.
Although i have played more than half of the Nancy Drew's i'm pretty sure the one with most action is going to have to be warnings at Waverly academy because
Click to reveal..
of the ending with Corine and the swinging axe
and because of all the sneaking and making snacks although the Ransom of the seven Ships with the swimming driving monkeys. All of them are pretty actiony (not a real word but who cares.)I am about to start on the secret of old clock any comments on that game would be nice i want to know what kind of things are in store for me and younger ladies like me are most likey to like stuff like nancy drew not the really young kids. btw im 17

Just installed it and looks pretty good. I haven't played the first one in a few years so this one is pretty new to me.

I have been playing a lot of casual games and ready to play a good adventure again. I am waiting for Runaway 3 to go down in price so was thinking about this Nancy Drew game because it was more mystery than chores. I have played one in a while because they have been a little too chore based than solving puzzles to figure out the mystery. What do you guys think that have boaght the remastered version. I have never played this one an at 19.99 that fits the budget better.

Hi, ramona!

I played the original a few years ago, but didn't remember much about it (I now know why it was so forgettable lol ) so I was really looking forward to playing the remastered version. There are no chores to perform, very few puzzles to solve, and it only took me about 6 hours to play. I've played casual games that I downloaded from BFG for $6.99 that lasted longer than that and were much more enjoyable.

The graphics were excellent, there are 3 locations to explore, 5 characters you can interact with and you're also treated to the annoying background music from "Phantom of Venice" when Nancy was dancing. I realized the chores that were added in the later games is what extended the gameplay.

I was disappointed, but I'm sure there are lots of other gamers who enjoyed it. "Ransom of the Seven Ships" was previously my least favorite Nancy Drew game, but it just got bumped up a notch grin !

Thanks Susie the input, for $20, I think I will pass with it being shorter that some of the casual games I play. If it ends up on BFG, I will pick it up then. I loved the series at first but it seems to not be as fun anymore.

I picked up this game yesteday at Target and started playing it as soon as I got home. 20 minutes into the game when I went to "Maxine's", imagine my horror when I saw in the corner the dreaded "Barnacle Blaster" game. After this game nearly did me in in the "Haunted Carousel" I vowed never to go near it again.

But Her Interactive must have taken pity on us dexterously challenged gamers and made it a much more forgiving game. It's easier and apparently you don't have to win in order to continue the game. At least not in the early part of the game.

I wonder what other surprises lie ahead.....

Hi, SuMac!

You'll be relieved to know that "Barnacle Blast" is strictly optional and you don't have to win or even play it to finish the game.

As for any other surprises, you'll just have to wait and see lol !

Hi, Becky!

lol ! I think the farthest I got was Level 6 or 7, but I found the mini games in some of the other Nancy Drew games to be much more enjoyable.

Tamberine -- Blue Moon Canyon is one of my favorite Nancies. thumbsUp12 I liked the idea of riding on a puzzle train.
