While her family searches for clues, others refuse to speak about the estate’s dark past.

“Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall continues to provide some of the best storytelling around, and the game's ample dialog means even the most diehard player will take a few hours to unravel all of its secrets.” - Gamezebo

"This is by far the most scariest game of all in the entire series of Nancy Drew games. Tread carefully when you play the Ghost of Thornton Hall, or you will get scared out of your wits when you meet some rather spooky apparitions. To make it even more exciting, we hope you won’t mind tramping through a melancholic cemetery in the middle of the night, investigating a sombre and decrepit crypt, and plumbing the depths of claustrophobic tunnels." - GamesWarp

"I have greatly enjoyed playing Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall. I highly recommend it to all fans of the series and gamers who enjoy first-person adventures. The story, characters, setting, and puzzles are more than enough to satiate any adventurer and inspired sleuth, young or old." - Adventure Classic Gaming

Great game before it stop working


I love Nancy Drew games, so when I found out that there was a game for the iPad, I was excited. It was a great game and it was fun to play, but now I cannot play it. Every time I try to talk to someone, it just fast forwards through the script. The voices of the characters are also missing. I also noticed that the latest version is 1.7 but the version installed on my iPad is 1.6. I tried to uninstall and reinstall it but it didn't work. I would like to update the game but there is not an update option for it.

*Edit* I was able to get the app to update so the conversations are not super fast anymore. The voices still seem to be missing, as well as background noises.


like a d 6

Why? Because when I look into the hallway the first time I see Charlotte in a red dress. Second time she is wearing a tan dress inside the locked room singing creepily. There are also moving statues in the graveyard. The puzzles are hard too. I typed the password for the phone and went to video messages and that was pretty creepy too📲😱😰. I made it back to Harper the second time but when I came out there was something like a slug crawling to me but the first time everybody’s gone. Just why are there black frames over each moving object? Charlottes bedroom is impossible to get in because I found the 🔑 to it and fell out! Im 9 and I expect better.

UNPLAYABLE (freezes & crashes)


It looks like the developers stopped halfway through the ‘polishing’ phase; the game freezes and crashes at least 4 times every 15 minutes of play. Every time you need to close out of the game and restart. Of course, right after I shell out the $6 this started happening. Absurd. Not to mention the rendering is circa 2008, with dynamic animations that are supposed to be subtle, sticking out like a sore thumb because obvious dark black pixels border any and all animations. It is a shame I cannot upload screenshots to this review.
I would not and will not recommend this game to anyone after my experience. The reason for the one hour free-play limit is clear: if you play it longer than that, you may not want to purchase it.
