Description

Sailing down in a cruise ship down the beautiful River Nile on their honeymoon a young couple one night meets Hercule Poirot. Their meeting soon turns tragic when the famous detective is called upon to investigate a murder close to them. Still aboard, Poirot must use his clue-seeking and interrogation techniques to find out who killed the passenger and is still sailing with them.

This hidden object game takes place on a cruise boat and is made up of twenty four rooms. The object of the game like many others of this genre is to find the items listed in the image you are shown. Some clues you find are evidence you need in order to figure out who-done-it at the end of each of the twelve levels. Many of the levels end with a different type of puzzle game such as a sliding picture game where you must slide portions of an image to unscramble the image. Some items on the board are interactive in that, for example, a box may be clicked to open it which will reveal a clue inside. If you're struggling to find that last item you can click on one of your saved magnifying glasses to highlight where this object is. You will also question, through preset options, the fourteen main suspects of the game including; the best friend in love with the groom, the former fiancé, and a diamond thief.
