Agatha Christie: Peril at End House is a challenging hidden object game based on the legendary crime novelist's detective story. This time Poirot and his friend Hastings are having a rest in wonderful St. Loo. But, as usual, their vacations turn into investigations. You play as Hercule Poirot, and your task is to find out who is willing to murder Miss Buckley, the End House owner.
The game offers you 13 investigations lasting for 25 minutes and includes 3 locations to investigate. In every location, you should find items from the list, some of them are important evidence. Some items should not only be found, but also put in a certain place. Unfortunately, this task may appear hard to perform in some locations: you are clicking on the place the item should be put in, but can not do it from the first time and even from the fifth, so clicking becomes annoying.
If you get stuck and can not find a thing you can use a hint (you will have 5 hints for an investigation, so be careful when using them), or simply leave for another location and come back later. If you run out of time, you will have to start your search from the beginning of the current investigation.
At the end of every investigation you are offered to solve a bonus puzzle to unveil more information about the case. After you finish an investigation, you receive clue cards with suspects' answers or Hastings and Ms. Buckley's statements. The clue cards will help you to solve the whodunit.
All in all, Agatha Christie: Peril at End House has everything you will like in the hidden object game: a challenging story and gameplay, beautiful search scenes and nice music. And, it would be great if the game could include the famous theme from the Agatha Christie's Poirot TV series with David Suchet starring.
- Challenging gameplay
