Ah the classics, you don't get much better than that. The whole concept of this mystery game was brilliant. You get to stay on a lake, in a house that belonged to a gangster, and get to explore a speakeasy, it's awesome! Every time I play this game I'm always thrilled and deeply amused by it. Everything you do in this mystery challenges your brain and you get to do cool things like getting thrown into a shack and you have to escape before you burn up in flames. The thing I like the most in this game is the detail of the house with countless references to Mickey Malone's dogs. You really get the vibe from this game just how much one person can truly value their pets -- even if they are the key to finding secret loot. For this being one of the very small handful of first made Nancy Drew games, this is a pretty good game and it challenges your sleuthing skills. It's also a really good game to go back to for a refresher if you haven't played a mystery game in a while.
