Agatha Christie: Peril at End House
Not for beginners
Wow, some objects are so small you can hardly see it. And I hate the timer. The mini games are fair. But the storyline is great. I didn't expect the ending at all. This is a great HOG, but I don't think its for beginners.

Overall I really like the Agatha Christie HOG's. They're a very different format then other HOG's I play which are more strategic and interactive but I like it all the same. It's relaxing and interesting and as I am a huge fan of the books I enjoy seeing characters come to life; even if they change the story a bit.
In this game I LOVE the 20's flair and style in graphics and I really enjoy the vintage feel of these games.

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.

Hidden Object Mystery Game
Another story of an Agatha Christie book, which is in a hidden object adventure mystery format. As Hercule Poirot you need to unmask the murderer. Graphics are fine depicting the mayn places of interest, and there are game cards and cartoon strips that continue the story when necessary. Main focus is on HO although there are some mini games which are relatively easy. However the HO scenes are more difficult as they have a timer which is a great concept which makes the game more appealing.

It's an OK game
No technical issues, but not as much fun as some of the other Agatha games. I only played it once, not a game I would want to play again and again.

Good Game to Replay
This was my very first game and I must have played it at least 20 times. I loved it and my first exposure to a storyline and mini games.The object list changes from game to game but eventually you have seen them all and I liked testing my memory.

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.

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.
