“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

What's New in Version 1.3
Bug fixes and improvements
I have been waiting for a Nancy Drew game to be made for ipad. I have played all of the computer games but seem to use my ipad more often so it's nice that I could actually play one on my tablet. This game seems to be just like the computer game. The only issue I had with the app was getting used to clicking directly on things (like the conversation choices between Nancy & other characters) because sometimes my finger would tap things that I didn't mean to, but I guess I could have used a stylus to avoid this. Regardless, I look forward to other Nancy Drew games being available for ipad. I would love to see the old ones on here too so I can have both the computer version & a download on my tablet. As for the game itself, I found the game very fun & challenging at times...as always, I was very pleased with this Nancy Drew game! :)
I'm thrilled to find that one of the Nancy Drew games has come to iPad! I have played through the whole thing, and it was as delightful as I've come to expect from the ND games. I had no problems or glitches on my iPad. The voice overs are great, but I love that you can fast-forward through them (I read faster than they talk, so it gets annoying to have to wait for dialogue to catch up). Great spooky atmosphere and music, lots of areas to explore... Great!
In case anyone was wondering, you can find Easter eggs and phone charms in this game (so it's the equivalent of the deluxe version of the PC/Mac game).
I would love to give this game five stars, as it was a ton of fun, and quite entertaining. I played straight through and got almost to the end, when I told myself I finally had to go to bed. Imagine my horror, then, when I woke up the next day and opened the app, hit continue, and nothing happened. Nothing at all, just a blank screen. There is nothing I can do about it, since they don't have separate save files/functions, my options are to either erase and re-download the app, or hit new game, either option will delete everything and start me back on square one. I am so disappointed. I emailed the company today and am awaiting their response, I don't have high hopes about it though.
