The tomb of Nefertari, the Egyptian queen much loved by the famous King Ramses II, has yet to be found. An archaeological team thinks that they have discovered it but fear that the recent sudden accidents have been caused by a curse. Nancy Drew is more inclined to think otherwise and travels to Egypt to the site of the archaeology dig.
Players step into the shoes of Nancy Drew, the famous teen detective, as she investigates to find the cause of the accidents. She will talk to the archaeology team, students and others at the dig site, explore the newly discovered Egyptian tomb with its colorful walls, hieroglyphics and hidden traps.
Nancy's phone has a camera which is used to snap pictures of important clues. She can also use it to call friends for help if something stumps her. Puzzle types include word games, cryptograms, rotating puzzles, sliding puzzles, and physics-based puzzles.
This is the 26th game in the series. It introduces newly designed main menu, interface and options screen. Difficulty levels have been renamed Amateur Sleuth and Master Sleuth. Like previous games, the game features the "Second Chance" option if a fatal mistake is made.
