Jessalyn Thornton’s fateful sleepover at the abandoned Thornton estate was supposed to be a pre-wedding celebration, but the fun ended when she disappeared. While her family searches for clues, others refuse to speak about the estate’s dark past. Did something supernatural happen to Jessalyn, or is someone in Thornton Hall holding something besides family secrets?

Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall reviews and comments

Translated by

I will Say briefly: I liked it. Why? This is Nancy Drew. Just an interesting and exciting series of games. There is a convenient control, a beautiful picture, a good story. And Most importantly, for me, it's a chic atmosphere and interesting puzzles. You feel the environment created in the game. That'S when I start playing Nancy Drew, I can't stop. So in all the games of the series. This is not an exception. The Manor house with its secrets, secret walkers, and caches. Casts, frankly speaking, a couple of times scared. Surprisingly simple. Special Thanks for the Russian translation and voice-over fans of the series. It Worked fine. Only I had problems with the password from the phone, but it is probably I am a dumb, I still did not understand the end, but the phone opened.

In Nancy Drew's games there is no deep plot or great sense. It can not be called a masterpiece, but what they always hooked me, so it's the atmosphere. Even with the point-and-click interface, developers are very well able to set the desired tone of the game. Whether It's a farm, jungle or train, you're always deeply immersed in this environment. Unpretentious Job Type: Make tea, chop firewood or play air hockey-complete their business. And speaking about atmosphere, it is impossible not to mention the remarkable soundtrack which supplement the general picture. The Game Ghost of Thornton Hall was no exception. Personally, I have Thornton's estate all the playing time kept in suspense. I can Not say that after the end of the game I was delighted with it, but now through time I can call Ghost of Thornton Hall a good quest. Pros of the game:-Tense Atmosphere-Good Soundtrack-Tea, tea and once again tea-Three endings (unlike other games) Cons:-No change of day/night (too much investigation for one night) Special thanks to DESIGNER for Russian translation of text and voice Games!

In Search of Jessalyn there Are some Thinking tasks and Puzzle nuts to crack and one feels like on a gigantic Scavenger hunt that takes place in the Estate and in the Grounds around it. You quickly have the Feeling that someone is always one Step ahead of Nancy, why remains a Mystery at first. Leaving Residents with important Information depends at the Beginning on what Nancy has already learned in other Conversations. The Gebiete/spaces that Nancy can enter at the Beginning are also limited, but as the Game progresses, this changes and the Story noticeably picks up Speed. There are no Mini-games and no Nancy will not use the Sleeping Bag voluntarily, She wants to find the Missing as soon as possible and has no Time to rest and so she stays on her Feet until total Exhaustion ... If you don't Feel like taking Notes, you can of course check the most important Information for a later Date via Mobile phone photo. Time-critical Passages are thankfully very rare and so Nancy can fully focus on the harder Puzzle nuts later. The accompanying Music suitable For every Moment rounds off an extremely successful ghost puzzle adventure brand "Nancy Drew." Total 8/10
