Review by Sara

Help Nancy to uncover the mystery of this illusive manor by interviewing members of the house who slowly provide new information regarding the dark secret of the Penvellyn family of Blackmoor Manor.

A Spooky Adventure

The level of spookiness achieved in The Curse of Blackmoor Manor is truly commendable. With each creaking door entered you will feel the eerie history of this aged mansion thanks to the wonderful sound effects and background music.


Good Dialogue That is Essential to the Game

Voice acting is also very well done, including charming British accents and realistic dialogue. Many dialogue options, as well as actions, are interdependent on one another which means that some features will not be unlocked until other actions are performed, such as talking to daughter Jane in order to receive an important call. The upside is this produces a longer and more difficult game overall. The downside is at times it can be difficult to know who to talk to or where to look to unlock necessary information which slows the game down immensely and can easily lead to boredom.

Mini-Games Add Diversity to Gameplay

Mini-games included are diverse, including jigsaw puzzles, matching card games, computer games and more. While amusing, most mini-games are not required to solve the mystery at hand which will come as a delight to players who are only interested in the adventure and dislike these miniature challenges.


Creative Story Advancements

Unlike many adventure games that rely on text boxes to reveal important information, the Curse of the Blackmoor Manor unveils such info to the player primarily using creative dialogue options, interacting with other characters to gain inside knowledge, which is one of the most fantastically realistic qualities of the game.

Conclusion - An Excellent Adventure With Great Ambience

Nancy Drew and the Curse of the Blackmoor Manor will send chills down your spine by employing realistic graphics, sound effects and dialogue options that shroud the manor in mystery and magic. Although it may seem a bit slow at times, this game is truly well done and offers a spooky challenge that is both difficult and rewarding.
