This game is beautifully animated and it looks like it could be fun - but I have no idea how to play it. There don't seem to be any instructions and no tutorial really on the game and no "cheats" to help me get the game started.
I grew up loving to read the Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys & Trixie Belden books and thought I'd love to give this game a try. The player is Nancy Drew (how many nights did I dream of being Nancy Drew?) and as you view the game you actually walk in her steps - there are arrows that indicate which way you can turn (right or left, up or down stairs and so on) and as you walk you find clues and games to solve. There are long conversations with characters that she meets and they are giving instructions or clues but I really didn't know what to do.
If someone can get me started I'd love to give it a try and I'll happily re-review it.
