A terrifying myth comes alive in Germany! Many years ago a monster stalked the German forest surrounding Castle Finster. According to locals and storytellers, the monster disappeared when it claimed a victim. Now everyone is frightened by the sights and sounds of something large stumbling through the darkness. Can you solve the mystery before the monster adds another chapter to this legend? Dare to Play.
This is one of the greatest ND games I have played. I would rank it in the top three along with Crystal Skull and Haunted Mansion. I played Shadow at the Water's Edge before this and I thought this one was way more captivating and engaging. I never once felt lost - I always had some sort of a mission that I actually wanted to do. The games within the game are A LOT of fun. The characters are the best I have seen - they each have their own bit of personality and are quite funny. There is a bit of dialogue but it adds to the story/plot nicely. I didn't think it was short by any means - it took me four days to complete (I worked on it a lot each day and also didn't use any cheats). Neither did I think the ending was abrubt. I kept going back and forth on who I thought it was but near the end I definitely formed a solid guess and ended up being correct. The overall difficulty would be about a 3/5 - it was challenging but fun at the same time. Honestly, I am looking forward to playing it again and again. It had one of the best plotlines I have seen. I really hope the next ND game is like this one and doesn't disappoint! WELL worth the cost!
Well worth the money
This is the second Nancy Drew game I've bought from the App Store, the first being Shadow at the Water's Edge, and these games are definitely worth the money. The graphics are wonderful, the storylines are interesting, they are quite long, and the puzzles are challenging. Plus, there are always a few different mini games within the storyline, this one in particular had two board games that you could play with other characters.
The only problem I noticed with this game was that towards the end the audio seemed to be cutting in and out, but it did not interfere with gameplay and the captions were still readable, it is just a small bug to be fixed.
I would say that if you a fan of these games then this would be a good addition, however, I personally feel that Shadow at the Water's Edge is a better, more difficult game.
This game is fun, challenging, and scary. It gets your adrenaline working as well as your brain. Graphics are amazing and the game keeps you thinking the entire time. The only disadvantage was how long it took to load, but I believe it is because of the huge amount of content and graphics it has to load. This was well worth the money and I will play it again and again. I dont believe it could ever be boring. VERY much worth the money! I recommended it to all my Nancy Drew fan friends :) I didnt have any problem with the audio cutting out as other reviews have described, so I think they have resolved that problem :)
