Nancy Drew®: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek

Nancy Drew®: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek

At this point i guess i am making my way thru all the ND games. I play on JR level and this was my 9th game so far. Honestly this was a favorite of mine. IT had all the right stuff:

-multiple locations

-a few mini games, including one of my favorite food making mini games

-multiple suspects

-several changes in the plot that kept it interesting

Fox and Geese wasn’t as bad as everyone says, i found it interestingly challenging, and probably one of the more fun games that had been thoroughly game tested for inaccuracies. There is a trick to it, however, and just a quick youtube video and you get the trick of it. Honestly, it makes me love it more now knowing there is an entire set up to follow - its like the odd cousin of checkers and chess.

Once again, I have played a Nancy Drew game that has left me dissatisfied and wondering why I bothered purchasing HER interactive games.

The White Wolf of Icicle Creek is a very fun game to play, like most of the titles of Nancy Drew, however, there is one glaring problem and I have found it in almost every single Nancy Drew game. There is always a story element; side quest or puzzle that seems either near impossible to pass or takes so much of your time, energy and mental state that you simply - give up.

Nancy Drew®: The Creature of Kapu Cave

Nancy Drew®: The Creature of Kapu Cave

This is the only nancy drew game i have played so far. Some puzzles in the game made no sense and others you had to die a million times to figure out. The Plot seems to lack a few things but it was okay..they couldve added more. sadly the villian characters stood out like a soar thumb. if it had built more into the story line and characters it wouldve been better. Making Characters more mysterious and harder to read, adding puzzles that acually had hints, better ways to buy/ find items (took forever to find certain things). what i hated the most was listeing to the characters lines, there is no skip option for that so everything i already read had to be spoken again and agian. The only reason i like this game is because its point and click. other than thats its a super easy game with stupid problem solving puzzles that are easy as fuck or just impossibe without a walkthrough. 2 outta 5. if you like point and click puzzle games try it out. it may have flaws but surprisingly out of all the stress it put me ethrough i still enjoyed playing.

I really wish I hadn’t bought this. I absolutely love the Nancy Drew games, and I grew up on Maui, so I thought “Hey, I love Her Interactive, they haven’t let me down before, and I miss Maui and my family, it’d be nice to have a little reminder of home. This’ll be perfect for me, right?!”. But, no. I was wrong. So wrong.

I had actually bought a physical copy of this game when it first came out. However, I was still in Maui at that time, and I had a bunch of other ND titles I still hadn’t played yet, so it got put off. And eventually I moved, one of the discs got lost somewhere along the way, and I couldn’t play it. Recently, I got some birthday money, I found that the ND games were starting to be put on STEAM, and I thought “Oh, perfect! I’ll FINALLY be able to play it!!” But the hype was short-lived. The searching for shells, the fishing, making necklaces, etc. were nice and calming, but they got boring and tedious very fast. ND characters are usually all so vibrant, varied, and interesting, so at first I thought these ones would be the same, especially with the interesting concept introduced at the very beginning of doing stuff, getting novelty money, doing more stuff, and repeat. I mean, it wasn’t the most fun, but it was an interesting concept at least.

Nancy Drew®: The Silent Spy

Overall, I’d give this one a 7.5/10! I liked the story and the puzzles were a good level of difficulty, perhaps it was on the medium side. Some of the characters were great, some were alright. The setting of this game was a good one as well, however there weren’t that many places to explore. I’m glad that the “chore” type stuff in this one was super minimal - barely there at all. I also liked that most of the resources you needed were with you most of the time.

One of the weaker points to this one was that there was a lot of repetition in the conversations with the characters. I think Nancy asked the same questions like 10 times. But because I liked most of the characters enough, it was not unbearable, and you can skip through them. It also felt like a relatively short game compared to some others.

Scotland. Secret agent themed brain teasers. Scotland. Archery. Need I say more?

Seriously, if you are a long time Nancy Drew game fan, this one hits all the marks, not to mention it’s a rare and responsibly told foray into Nancy’s canon and they do such a good job with the story. The game flows well and there always seem to be something to do, even in lulls

(of which there were few). It has a good range of puzzles, ranging from fun, to medium to challenging (for me these are always the ones where you simply use association and intuition to put the clues together, and ultimately solve it using trial and error). Be warned there is a lot of text/letters to read and lots of dialogue.

I loved the demo of this game and was HYPED to play the full version.

Without saying too much, I will say you should take your expectations of what you think the game is and throw them out the window and enjoy the ride! I fully enjoyed this very odd story. You can see the amount of love that went into this.

Three Pigeons in a Trench Coat

Three Pigeons in a Trench Coat

Our story begins with a very good looking pigeon with an amazing name, who’s dream is to act in the great theater that they live in. With the help of a lovely human, a fluffy pigeon and a questionably french bird, they create the perfect human disguise: a trench coat. Heigh-ho, hey-ho! Alas, suddenly, the world ends! Zounds! Bazinga! Yeet! All hope is lost! But, in the nick of time, a figure approaches this spectacular pigeon with an offer. Would you like to try again?

Three Pigeons in a Trench Coat is a fast paced, action, adventure game, where you try to find out what ends the world and stop it before the world ends again five minutes later. And if you fail? Just try again!

Nancy Drew®: The Shattered Medallion

Nancy Drew®: The Shattered Medallion

I don’t really get why the reviews on this weren’t great. There was lots of puzzles and gorgeous art. I thought the reality show setting was a plausible explanation for needing to do a puzzle for every mundane task (other Her games are…a little less plausible). There was some re-use of puzzles and mini-games from previous Nancy Drew games, but that’s not the worst thing in the world. After all, there’s only so many good puzzles, and it’s much better than having barely any puzzles at all (looking at you, Midnight in Salem). Only three things bugged me. First, some of the activities were a bit repetitive (the submarine, the dial at the end). Second, a whole lot of the dialog was inscrutable. I know that it’s part of Sonny’s and Patrick’s characters to be goofballs, but it was a little too disorienting. Third, I wish there had been a Maori character, and more background on Maori culture.

I personally enjoyed this game for all of the puzzles. They come one after another, so be prepared to do a lot of puzzle-solving and exploration. Even though I played on the Master level, the puzzles aren’t too crazy. I did notice that most of the puzzles don’t necessarily fit in the theme of a reality show (which is the game’s main plot line), but they fit in the traditional “educational” angle of the Nancy Drew games.

There are some kooky conversations with the characters and a lot of references to past games. If you’re new to Nancy Drew, all of the references may sound strange. If you don’t take the story or characters too seriously, and just in it for the puzzles, I would recommend this game (especially over Midnight in Salem).

Nancy Drew®: Warnings at Waverly Academy

Nancy Drew®: Warnings at Waverly Academy

Ah, Nancy Drew…these games were my childhood. My younger brother and I would play these games over and over again when we were kids. I received two of them for my ninth birthday, and from then on, we were hooked on mystery solving! Our teamwork always made the gameplay shorter, but we always had so much fun together! When I told my brother that I had purchased another one, he was very excited and agreed to help me with this one. I’m currently a student at an all-women’s college, and he’s getting ready to go to college in September, so I figured it would be good to compare my school to the school in the game while teaching him some of the basics of college life. (Okay, this particular academy isn’t really college, it’s a boarding school, but still…)

Most Nancy Drew fans say that this game is one of the best in the series. I’m not one of them. Every single character is unlikable in some way, and not in the good ‘written that way on purpose’ sort of way. I can tolerate a lot of bad stuff from a game for the sake of good characters, but they’re all awful. ‘Rachel’ is fine (if you ignore that your only interactions with then are focused entirely on doing her homework) but was so focused on her work that you never got a sense of her personality. That’s the nicest thing I can say about her. Corine is nosy and manipulative, Leela is a boring and single-minded minigame machine, Mel is a tryhard edgelord whose popularity with the fanbase baffles me, and Izzy is written to be ‘the unlikable one’ in a world where all the other girls are so awful that she has to be over-the-top to stand out as the one who is INTENDED to be awful. The albino squirrel who stole my MacGuffin was my favorite. I only played this a second time through because everyone insisted it was great, and I wondered if I was wrong. I wasn’t. At one point, I spent half an hour making fake sandwiches in the school’s cafeteria, because I would rather do that than spend time with any of the characters. If you like chores and catty drama, this is the game for you. I love this series overall, but for me, this one ranks at the very bottom, along with Midnight in Salem, The Shattered Medallion, and Creature of Kapu Cave. However, I’ve been told that I’m one of only a few who thinks this, so maybe give it a try.
