DescriptionThe famous Hardy Boys make their video gaming debut with this game, The Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft.
The game is pure adventure with a modern setting and storyline including all of the traditional aspects: point-and-click, exploration, puzzle-solving, inventory items, and interaction with in-game characters. It is played using a 3rd person perspective, and the player will play either Frank or Joe Hardy intermittently or together as a team to accomplish mutual goals. Each boy has his own inventory but items can be shared in special circumstances and in unusual ways.
The Spencer mansion reports a break-in and valuable bonds have been stolen from the safe. Since the Hardy Boys are members of the American Teens Against Crime organization (the A.T.A.C.), they will be involved in trying to solve the case. Of course, their parents don't always approve of the boys getting down and dirty, so to speak, so the usual teen antics of hiding the goings on from them surfaces during the beginning of the game.
Puzzles are a varied bunch including situation and inventory-based problems to help the boys accomplish the many tasks at hand. The game has four chapters, an orchestrated soundtrack, and sound effects.
