I LOVE mystery games. Clue has always been my favorite board game, and when I hear of it being on an electronic device, like a computer I get so excited!
When I was contacted by Family Review Network to test out a Nancy Drew game by HERinteractive, I was really looking forward to it. While I have never read any of the Nancy Drew books, I knew it was mystery series and knew it was right up my alley.
I was set a copy of the new game "Trial of the Twister". I have seen some pretty cheesy mystery games, so I wasn't expecting much. To say that the game exceeded my expectations is a complete understatement! I LOVED IT! It challenged me, and that was awesome.
One thing that I really liked was the option for two different difficulties. You are able to play as a Junior Detective (easy) and are able to have a task list, a list that will tell you the things you need to complete. As a Senior Detective (hard), you are on your own.
Silly me decided I was billy bad butt and started right on the hard one. Like I said, silly me! I quit and went for the easier setting. I am looking forward to going back and trying it again on hard to see if there are game differences and if I am able to get though it myself.
I would recommend this game, and the other I was able to review "Secrets Can Kill", for pre-teen and teens. It's a bit much for younger kids to understand I think. At $19.99 a game, it would be a perfect gift for a holiday or birthday.
