Agatha Christie: Peril at End House
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.

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.

Who's Trying To Kill Mademoiselle Buckley?
Apparently the only thing that will take Hercule Poirot out of retirement is a beautiful woman. Unfortunately someone is trying to murder her! I love the Agatha Christie murder mystery hidden object games, but in my opinion, this one didn't have as much flair as the other editions. I just recently began playing this series so in all fairness, this might be one of the earlier editions. You search several different rooms indoors and outdoors, searching for clues. There might also be several pieces of torn newspaper to find as well. There is some interactions available such as waiting for the mouse to walk across the floor to "catch" him. In several of the rooms you will come across clue cards which tell you the background of certain characters and you can visit the evidence room to examine the clues you find and the timer is paused as long as you need. I liked the mini games such as putting the pieces of newspaper back together by clicking on the piece and right clicking the piece to rotate it, and putting a letter together that is missing several words. You need to find the correct word listed at the bottom of the letter and place it in the empty space so that the letter makes sense. I really liked this game, I just wasn't over the top with it like I was the other Agatha Christie Hidden Object Games, enjoy!

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.
