ABC Murders Computer Game
I just finished playing The ABC Murders computer game. It was fun, but I liked the previous three Agatha Christie adventure games (And Then There Were None, Murder on the Orient Express, and Evil Under the Sun) better. The best part of the game for me was questioning the suspects. I liked how the game gave you many different options of what to ask each person. Sometimes, the wrong questions were obvious. Other times, I was uncertain which question I should ask and ended up asking the wrong question (I felt really bad about upsetting poor Mary Drower by asking her the wrong question!). I also liked how the game gave you trophies based on the decisions you made and how you earned Ego Points for acting like Poirot. The worst part of the game for me were the controls. This is the only computer game I have played where I had significant trouble getting the mouse to do what I wanted it to do. Some of the puzzles were super easy, but took forever to solve because the mouse would not let me move the items where I wanted/needed to move them. (For example, I knew I needed to put the solvent onto the dry cloth and so I picked up the solvent bottle and put it on the dry cloth repeatedly and nothing happened. Eventually, the game decided to cooperate.) The other annoying feature was that every time you clicked on a piece of paper, you manually had to spin it around before you could read it. Those are my thoughts. How did other people like the game? Did others have similar problems with the controls? If you have played the other Agatha Christie Adventure games, which one is your favorite and why?
