Agatha Christie: Death On The Nile Flood Light Games / Oberon Media 2007

After a rich heiress is killed, Agatha Christie's famous detective, Hercule Poirot finds himself in the right place at the right time to investigate the crime with a boatful of murder suspects onboard the S.S. Karnak as it floats serenely down the Nile. Can the Belgian detective find the culprit before they reach port? The game is beautifully designed and artfully drawn, using an engaging and intuitive "seek-and-find" game dynamic. Award-winning game designer Jane Jensen has gone to great lengths to remain faithful to the original storyline and the era. Fans of the Queen of Crime and casual games alike will find the game immensely appealing as they immerse themselves in the uncertain world of Hercule Poirot. In order to solve the crime, Poirot (who in fact is you) will need to sleuth for clues in all the rooms of the liner, and question each of the passengers. Look for the required objects that are listed on the left-hand side of the screen and click them. The item will immediately be crossed out of your to-find-list. It's similar to the Mystery Case Files games, but you can also check different objects and the background of each location is no longer a steady picture, but it contains animated elements. Just like in real life, you can lift a book resting on the floor, turn its pages in order to find the clue hidden behind the pages, or watch the wall clock ticking etc. After searching for clues at the usual levels you'll be offered to tackle a sliding puzzle containing a picture that will shed light on a mysterious murder and bring you one step closer to its solution. Another stage of levels includes questioning the suspects. You'll have a chance to meet the passengers and familiarize with their biographies to sort out who was involved in this dreadful story. The history and culture of the first part of 20th century is also nicely presented.
