Very relaxing game, will have lots of enjoyment as it is one i will play again and again and again! If you like HOGS, this is the game for you.

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.

As a lover of the David Suchet version of the series I couldn't pass up this game. It follows the story quite well. Great graphics and of reasonable challenge.

GOOD TIMED GAME
Based on complete game. This is a good solid but timed game - lengthy. Storyline follows the Poirot mystery from Christie?s book of the same name. There are plenty of red herrings thrown in. Graphics are vivid and true to the time period. Some objects are very small, so the crisp, colorful and clear graphics really help. Music sounds like it is from that period.
Puzzles and mini-games are plentiful. They relate to the story and provide vital clues. There are no HOS; instead the objects are found within the location. The scenes are somewhat cluttered and objects not normal to the location are frequent. A riddle may need to be solved to determine what object you?re looking for. You also get tasks to do (like finding and putting toys into a basket) and riddles to solve in the scenes. After each scene, you get a clue card about a character. You need to pay attention to the clues because you?ll need them to match the clues to the characters several times, and they get more difficult as the game progresses. Ending: murder solved.

Peril at End House
Another game from Agatha Christie's series, this one is also from the book with same title. I didn't know about the book until I played this game and when I'm finished with it, I read the book to compare. The graphic of the HOG is great, although many are too small to see, and sadly the between scenes are comic style, a bit unfit for a game that is set in the 19th (?) century. Sorry if that's not correct. Still, a fun game and should be tried for mystery fans.

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.

Love the Agatha Christie games
I love all the games that are bright (as opposed to dark screens). All the Agatha Christie games are terrific and fun. Please do more.

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.

No murder this time??
This is a really great game. The hidden object area is true to the time the story is set in. The game also has a nice length. I really like that is close to the real story. Dame Agatha Christie would be proud.

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.
