[Review Revisited] Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders

by EdEN, Owner

Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders from Artefacts Studio and Microïds is a new take on the beloved classic from author Agatha Christie. Due to the nature of the story, the best way to present this to players is by way of a point and click adventure game, which is certainly a good choice.


Here is an excerpt from the review:

The first crime scene in Andover will allow you to get a good grip on how the game will progress. For example, you find Chief Inspector Japp, who you need to talk to, and after a short exchange, players will be tasked with finding clues on Japp that agree with Poirot’s assessment of the gentleman. Poirot realizes that Japp is too relaxed considering there is a murder to solve, so players need to use their power of observation (moving around the on-screen reticle) to find three clues that match Poirot’s point of view. As you move the reticle around the controller will start to vibrate as you get closer to a clue, and you must then leave the cursor on top of said clue for it to register (going back to the first crime scene, Japp has a slight smile, so players must zone in on his mouth).
