Track Down the Truth to Silence the Howling Hounds

You, as Nancy Drew, must pick up the cold trail left by a sinister character from long ago in this intriguing 3-D interactive mystery. Decipher cryptic puzzles, search through shadowy woods, creepy old houses, interview suspicious characters, and dodge danger to sniff out the truth behind local legends and solve the mystery of the Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake.

A friend’s frantic note sends Nancy on the trail of a mysterious pack of dogs, whose glowing eyes and mournful howls threaten to chase her and her friend away forever. Locals say that the dogs have come back from the grave to protect the secrets of their master, who died long ago and was buried next to his beloved dogs.

Players, as Nancy Drew, must use their detective skills to track the history of Mike Malone, the notorious gangster who once lived in the lakeside cabin recently purchased by Nancy’s friend. Are the ghostly legends true, or is there a flesh and blood answer to the dogs’ haunting howls? To solve the case Nancy ventures into the deep, dark woods surrounding the lake. Like a bird dog hot on a scent, she hunts down the history of Moon Lake and its residents in search of clues. Along the way she meets a variety of fascinating characters, all with something to hide.

Quandary Review by Emily Sheehan (age 13)

"You are Nancy Drew and you are invited by your friend, Sally McDonald, to stay at her house to find out just why these Ghost Dogs keep attacking. Sally abandons you because she does not enjoy being around the Ghost Dogs. So you are left there alone, at one scary lake, in one scary house, with a pack of scary dogs after you. Could this adventure get much better?"

"As I mentioned the game is full of mini puzzles. I didn’t have many problems with these. I love doing them, but Dad pointed me in the right direction with some. They were all quite different though. They ranged from putting together a puzzle, to pulling levers, to completing mazes. For some of them you were given instructions as to what to do, and others you just had to fiddle around with."

"The graphics and sound were once again impressive. The lip sync fitted the voices well, and the actors doing the voices for the parts played them well. There were good sound effects, such as squeaky floor boards and crickets at night. The music helped set the mood; I found if the music was spooky I tended to be a little more cautious.

"Over all I enjoyed playing the game, but I thought the end was all a bit too sudden. I’d give it an eight and a half out of ten."
