  1. Playing as many characters!
    by hcs5490, USA - Mar 25th 2014

    Alibi in Ashes was a fun mix-up for a Nancy Drew game, as you get to play as Ned and Bess. Nancy is thrown in prision for arson and she needs her friends to help do some of the snooping for her. It was interesting to see the people in Nancy's town who know her and what she's about. Not my favorite Nancy Drew game, but playing as different characters made the story line more fun.
