Agatha Christie: Dead Man's Folly
GORGEOUS popcorn for the mind!
Beautiful artwork, gorgeous HO scenes, easy to play, nice mystery. No difficulty in figuring where to go or what to do next, just pure and simple HO. Mini games/puzzles are fairly easy with little or no frustration factor. Some problems with confusing names for items (example: cone on list meant a pine cone) but for the most part a lovely way to spend an evening or two. Some HO scenes must be revisited 2 or 3 times, but items usually are different each time. Dialog is text only with other characters. No vampires, no occult, no journals or walk throughs needed--just a good, old fashioned HO game with a mystery thrown in.
Nice way to wile away the hours, popcorn for the brain with plenty of eye candy in the form of beautifully detailed artist's watercolours for HO scenes!

No technical issue with this game. It is interesting enough to play several times. The graphic generally are clear and bright enough to find the hidden objects. This is a good game.

Slightly harder than other Poirot games, thus better
The plot of this game is not as true to the Agatha Christie book as the other Poirot games. The HO scenes are pretty easy. There are a few easy puzzle-type things, but it is mostly looking for random objects that don't help solve the mystery. I like all the Hercule Poirot games, but they are not hard and they do get boring after a few times through. I recommend playing the free trial before buying. If you love Christie, buy this. If you don't, check out Mystery Case Files or Dark Parables.

Had to play this game due to my love of Agatha Christie novels. The art was beautiful and well done. Some things had there names as the English calls them ie soccer ball in England is called a football. The hidden object scenes were traditional but some of the objects were hard to pick out due to the incredibly small size. It had a good story line but seemed slow as the story was told by game cards. The hint button was one that gave you another hint over time so they had to be used sparingly. The mini games were also traditional so they were easily solved. The cryptic clues were also fairly easy and once you had the clue all you had to do was locate it in the scene that you had the picture of. The only map I used was the one when I finished one scene and went to the next for more hos. It is a fairly straight forward game and while I enjoyed the part I played I could tell I was getting bored by the end of the hour demo. This game is a good one for people just starting with hog or beginners.

Murder at the party
This is a great game. The hidden objects are great. I also like the mini games. You will have to play to see what I am talking about. The game is a nice length. If you are a fan of Agatha Christie or even if you are not you will like this game.

Dead Man's Folly
Another of the great Agatha Christie games. Fantastic HOG scenes that can be somewhat challenging to the beginner, but do not let that sway you. This game will keep you into it till the end. You must figure out who committed the nasty deed. Another must have.

Theres been a murder at Dead mans Folly,
Mr H.Poirot is at it again this time hes at Dead Mans Folly. he has to use all his skills to find a killer.in this game and all the rest theres a list to find of H.O. and some puzzles to do. you have a short time to find them like all of the Agatha Christie Games they try to copy her books.still great fun to play.

If your looking for beautiful graphics, complimented with equal music then this game does the job. Its not the most challenging so i found myself playing it more for relaxation with just enough challenge to keep me coming back for more. I wouldnt usually play a game twice once ive completed it but this one offers a tranquil experience so i definately would return to this game.

I have and always will love Periot..He really does make you use those little grey cells...the visuals were great and the music as always you can turn down..level of challenge was very good and loved the story line...as always Periot or Agatha never disapoints with ther mystery's and there is always is a suprise around a turn somewhere..I really enjoyed this relaxing game with no violence just a good ole HOS..not that I dont enjoy the violence one too...I have lots of those games too...but this one is just enjoyable and different in its own way...really loved the different puzzels they game you and the regular ones too...I DEFFENTLY RECOMMEND THIS GAME
