SGSG-Nancy Drew PC Games-Alibi in Ashes! Review and Giveaway!!


Practically everybody has heard of Nancy Drew, whether it's from the multiple printings of mystery books, the old TV show, or most recently, the PC games produced by Her Interactive. Our family started playing the computer games when they first came out, and we have been hooked ever since! I was excited when I heard about the new Nancy Drew game, Alibi In Ashes. Not only did the trailer look very interesting, but the game is based in Nancy's hometown of River Heights. 
Visit the Drew home!
Nancy and her friends (Ned Nickerson, Bess Marvin and George Fayne) are participating in a local contest when it turns deadly. Nancy barely escapes from a burning building, and is arrested soon thereafter, as she has been framed to look like the arsonist responsible. 
Who set the fire? And was Nancy their real target?
This is quite honestly probably my favorite Nancy Drew game in quite some time; the plot was fun, and I enjoyed getting to play as Nancy and her 3 friends! It seemed to bring back some of the danger that has been missing from some of the past games. One of my favorite parts was getting to play as Nancy inside the police station, where she conducts forensic investigations (fingerprint matching, chemical analysis, etc.) and gathers evidence on the deduction board.
Prowl around the police station to uncover more evidence about the case.
Once Nancy gets released from jail, the adventure heats up as she starts questioning suspects, following up on leads that Ned, George and Bess have gathered. This is a great game that provides hours of enjoyment! 
Pick the lock to gather important clues!
I always enjoy the puzzles in the Nancy Drew games; these really make you think, and some even teach helpful tools; in past games you have to learn/use sign language, morse code, phonetic alphabet, etc.



It would make the perfect gift for any girl or teen (or even mother-my Mom still loves playing these too!). What girl wouldn't love solving mysteries with Nancy Drew? It's a gift that will certainly be received with joy!
