Secrets Can Kill
reviewed by the Coalition for Quality Children's Media
This is an interactive mystery game that challenges girls to solve a murder as they become the famous teenage detective, Nancy Drew. Players must find hidden clues, solve brain-teasing puzzles, collect inventory items and interrogate suspects.
Adult Comments: Installation was a little difficult. Very impressive production; hidden puzzles make it very challenging. It includes wonder music and lots of critical thinking practice.
Kid Comments: "We had fun and it was easy to use."
"All of our friends are asking us about this and want to play."
"It's really cool."
Girls love the company motto: "For girls who aren't afraid of a mouse."
The software froze a few times, which proved a little frustrating.
Recommended Age: 8 to 14
