Detective story star Nancy Drew's first adventure game is set in Florida, at Paseo Del Mar High School. An unpopular student there is murdered, and Nancy feels determined to solve it.
The game is a first-person point & click adventure using mouse control. Many objects can be zoomed in on to examine clues. Over 75 cryptic puzzles must be solved before the killer can be unmasked. A junior mode featuring less of the difficult puzzles is provided.
