Description official descriptions
The magnificent Blackmoor Manor is a 14th century castle located in the spooky British moors. Members of the Penvellyn family have lived there for centuries. Now the newest resident of the manor, Linda Penvellyn, a new bride, has secluded herself in her rooms. In total fear, she refuses to see or talk to anyone! Who or what has caused her to be so afraid? Has the mansion been cursed? Has the spirit of the "old witch" returned? Or, is something entirely different going on?
You play Nancy Drew who is requested to go to England and see if she can solve the mystery. Explore all of the rooms in the beautiful Blackmoor Manor searching for clues. You must uncover secrets from the Penvellyn family's illustrious past (as well as the present) by talking to people in and around the estate, finding interesting objects and solving challenging puzzles.

Has high level of difficulty. Most challenging Nancy Drew game that Her Interactive has created. Secrets, legends, puzzles, and a new twist to the characters are great.
Lack of interaction with particular characters.
The Bottom Line

The music wasn't the best, but better then some previous games I have bought. I loved the setting, an old English manor, and the accents and different pronunciations. I loved most puzzles, although some were rather easy or way too difficult. The characters were excellently made. I think the favorite thing with this game is that there finally is a child, and not only adults. She is about as old as me, and it felt more interesting to talk to her and that shes in the kind of mood and opinions as I do. I loved using the cell phone, being able to call most times instead of walking up to a phone or finding it, and searching on the internet. The rooms were beautifully decorated, and the graphics in this game was absolutely fabulous, I think it must be the best graphiced Nancy Drew game yet.
There were some tings you had to do over and over and over again. For example, to get hints or to talk to Loulou, the family pet, you had to wait till 2 o clock PM and go in Jane's room and make a special cake for Loulou to eat. Unless she'll refuse to eat. Some puzzles were very frustrating, as they were to hard in my opinion. For some, there would be no hint whatsoever of what it is about and where you'll find clues to manage the puzzle. You had to call and feed Loulou, and maybe investigate for several minutes, to just understand what the puzzle was. Before you find a big, green, glowing rock, you need light sticks from Jane. This is one of the things that you have to do over and over and over again. Once your light sticks run out, which is pretty quickly, you have to go to Jane and win at a game to get a new one.
The Bottom Line
Definitely fun. If you have a short temper and if you're very impatient, maybe this isn't the best Nancy Drew game to start with. This is the most difficult game so far, so if you're very young, you should try some other games before you're older and can play this one. Also, if you're young, you can get one of your parents to play with you. If they're not very busy and stressed, it's also a pleasurable experience for them to play as well!
