Tack A Spin With Danger!
The merry-go-round at Captains Cove seems to have a
mind of its own. Late at night, when the park is deserted, it takes off on a
bizarre riderless journey. Will you be able to unravel the mysterious
happenings surrounding this beautiful antique carousel?
You, as Nancy Drew, are invited to the Jersey shore to
investigate a series of mishaps at the Captains Cove Amusement Park.
First, the lead horse was stolen from the carousel. Then the roller coaster
suddenly lost power, resulting in a serious accident. Now the merry-go-round is
mysteriously starting up in the middle of the night.
The amusement park
is closed while the insurance company looks into the roller coaster accident.
Nancy begins her own investigation by interviewing park employees, including
office manager Joy Trent; chief engineer Ingrid Corey; security officer Harlan
Bishop, and Elliot Chen, the parks art director. An amusement park is a
big place inside and out -- investigate everything... Can you monitor
the park as closely as all this surveillance equipment? As her search unfolds,
Nancy learns about the lonely craftsman who carved the carousel horses, and
about the sad history of the parks former owner, Daryl Trent. Before he
died he hid puzzles and riddles throughout the park to reunite his daughter Joy
with her past. Only after solving a series of challenging puzzles and avoiding
several deadly traps, does Nancy discover the truth behind the haunted

Just Adventure by Ray Ivey
"Ill go further in saying
that this is the tightest game so far in the series, and it benefits from
refinements made to an already solid formula.
"One very much appeciated such refinement is that the menu
screens have at last been streamlined! Ive been complaining about this
since the series started, and Im happy to report that it takes
significantly less clicking to load and save games."
"The characters in the game also have very solid and
compelling backstories and personal agendas. Its some of the best writing
and character development the series has seen as well."
