Reviews

“Nancy Drew: Alibi in Ashes starts with Nancy Drew following a mysterious note that leads her into the Town Hall of her home town River Heights. The public building erupts in flames while Nancy is inside. As Nancy Drew, players hear the explosion and witness firsthand the smoke filling up the room…”
USA TODAY

“The positive message of the game is that it’s important to uncover the truth, despite how unpopular the truth might be to certain people.”
Common Sense Media

“It’s an impressive milestone to reach, especially considering that the quality of games in the series has remained fairly consistent throughout. Alibi in Ashes shakes up the usual formula, not just by sending Nancy to a different location, but by actually placing her in jail for most of the game while her long-time friends – Bess, Ned, and George – do most of the sleuthing on her behalf.”

About This Game

A local contest turns into an arson scene and now deceit smolders among the charred ruins of the River Heights Town Hall. Police have several suspects, but well-placed incriminating evidence and poisonous local gossip compelled authorities to make only one arrest: Nancy Drew. Can you, as the teenage detective and her closest friends, catch the real arsonist and extinguish the accusations among the embers?

Key features:

  • Play as Nancy Drew and explore her hometown of River Heights
  • Assume the roles of Nancy and her friends Bess, George, and Ned
  • Identify fingerprints at the local police lab
  • Ask tough questions. The answers vary depending on which character asks.
  • Collect evidence and pin it on the suspects
  • Visit the Drew home and explore Nancy’s room
  • Order different flavors of ice cream at the parlor
  • Hunt for clues to the real arsonist
  • Save your reputation before it goes up in smoke
  • Choose from Junior or Senior Detective difficulty levels
