Description official descriptions

In this adventure game, players get the opportunity to step into the shoes of one of Agatha Christie's most illustrious characters, detective Hercule Poirot. The story is based loosely on her book by the same name so readers who have read that novel will find this new and different.

Recounting his most recent case to his colleague Hastings, Poirot tells him what took place while he vacationed at a resort on Seadrift Island. When the body of actress Arlene Stuart floats up on shore, Poirot's leisure is cut short and he gets back to what he does best - investigating a murder! The story is narrated by Poirot with side comments by Hastings. Control Poirot as he explores his surroundings (the Smuggler's Rest Hotel, the island and town), and meet and interrogate 20 or so characters.

The game is played in 3rd person perspective in point-and-click, mouse-driven fashion. As is normal in adventure games, there are puzzles to solve most of which are inventory based and require simple common sense.

Based on player feedback from the previous Agatha Christie games, technical improvements have been made to graphics, character facial expressions, lip-synching, the inventory system, and the overall background appearance. The amount of travelling back and forth has been lessened as well. New to the series is the "Finger of Suspicion" hint system to help players discover what to do next.
