Agatha Christie: Peril at End House Icon
Fun, Interesting, and a Good Buy
by Nina F. Klaiman, Canada - May 9th 2009

I admit, reading reviews helps me make up my mind to buy or not buy a game.

I am a mystery and suspense buff so this game interested me. This is the first Agatha Christie Hidden Objects Game I have played. I did try the demo on the others, but they were not as good as this one. The graphics are very nice, clear and interesting. I especially enjoyed finding rocks-in-a-line at the Seacliff steps scene, putting eggs in a bowl, toys into a basket, papers in a drawer, letters on the gate post, etc. - very nice touch. A little "game" within a game.

I had difficulties finding objects at the Seacliff steps and Challenger's Yacht, which gave me a bit of a challenge (sic). The lighting in the Lawn screen at End house was also interesting, one was a night scene and the other a daylight scene. It was a test to find objects during the night scene and a relief to find them during the daylight scene; a very good mix.

The mini-puzzles between rounds were fun; finding pieces of newspaper articles in the hidden objects search and then having to put them together in the next mini-puzzle. Finding the parts of a dismantled radio in a search and then putting it back together. I could go on, but suffice to say, I enjoyed them as a little extra in the game.

My only complaint was that it was too short. I have played it twice and will leave it for awhile before playing it again. I am the type of person who likes to have my games for a long time. I hope there is another Agatha Christie coming soon!
