Agatha Christie: Peril at End House
Plodding, unimaginative game. The graphics are fine but there is too much exposition and not enough action. If I wanted to read the book again, I would go to the original.

Wish the games were not timed
I love these games; however, I've been reluctant to purchase more because of the timer. In the future, I hope the company will offer a relaxed mode.

For me, objects way too hard to find
I haven't played any of the Agatha Christie HO games, so I thought I'd try this one. I really loved the "Murder She Wrote" game and bought it, so I was hoping this would be close to that one. Not! I've played the MSW game several times and find it relaxing and enjoyable and wanted this one to be the same. It was way too hard to find objects for me and I'd run out of clues. How was I supposed to find "fallen boulders" when the screen was full of boulders? And, how do you find "boulders IN A ROW" when there are rows and rows of boulders? In addition, they didn't have the option of a non-timed game and I'd run out of time. I just couldn't get into it....I deleted it after only about 25 minutes....disappointing.

the peril is boredom
I'm too stubborn to quit so I went all the way through the full game. There's nothing clever in the storyline (quite reduced, of course, from Agatha Christie's), the characters (Hercule Poirot is more arrogant than accurate in the book as well as in this game), or the "hiding" of the objects. I don't do a lot of gaming but in my experience, the shadows and reflections in the artwork were lovely. That's the best I can say about this one.

Poirot Fan Likes This
Excellent game. The only thing I didn't like was how repetitive the music is. The music is very well done but they need to get more tracks. Murder on the Nile has more variety in sound. However the telling of the End House mystery was more captivating and I felt engaged. Most of the bonus pulzzles/challengers were fun as opposed to the story telling for Murder on the Nile which didn't grab me and I skipped most of its bonus rounds.
In general I don't like playing the same location twice but the art was fantastic. Sometimes they take the same location but place it at night time which is an okay work-around.
Let me also throw in that I enjoyed the Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes but it has one track of music which eventually can get on your nerves.
I hope this game dev company makes more quality Poirot HOG games but add multiple rich sounding audio tracks wrapped in engaging story telling. These details really make a huge difference.
I can definitely recommend this game.
