“Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall continues to provide some of the best storytelling around, and the game’s ample dialog means even the most diehard player will take a few hours to unravel all of its secrets. While navigation may be cumbersome, it’s definitely not a deal breaker, and it’s far too easy to get sucked into the game and never want to stop until you reach the conclusion.” Rated 4/5 Stars — Gamezebo

“The mystery for Nancy to solve is as intriguing as ever, the writing and voice-acting is solid (though a bit cheesy in places), puzzles are challenging, and the atmosphere is suitably creepy. Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall debuts two wonderful gameplay additions: an expanded hints system and the ability to fast-forward through dialog.” — Common Sense Media

“It’s yet another solid adventure game in a series that has always been among the best the genre has to offer. I have no idea how Her Interactive manages to keep their level of quality so high in such a consistent manner, but whatever they’re doing, it works.” — True PC Gaming

“One of the initial goals of Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall is to discern whether a ghost is real or not. There are creepy things that happen in Nancy Drew Ghost of Thornton Hall. Not just what you hear from characters in the game, but things you will also see while playing this Personal Computer game.” — Family Friendly Gaming

“This is by far the scariest game of all in the entire series of Nancy Drew games. Tread carefully when you play the Ghost of Thornton Hall, or you will get scared out of your wits when you meet some rather spooky apparitions… We here at GamesWarp have thoroughly enjoyed this game and know that this series of adventure games deserves much more attention than it is currently getting.” — GamesWarp

“The game starts with Nancy being awakened by her cell phone. The caller is Savannah Woodham, a ghost-hunter/paranormal expert who assisted Nancy in her previous adventure, Shadow at the Water’s Edge. She needs Nancy’s help. A young woman (Jessalyn Thornton) has disappeared during a scavenger hunt at a run-down, supposedly haunted mansion belonging to the Thornton family…” — GameBoomers

“I have to say it was amazing! It took me three days to play it but that’s because I played it for hours on end and even had to get help at the amazing Nancy Drew Message Boards when I got stuck! The game is exciting and even a bit scary at times! And since I’ve been playing them for years, I saw some changes that I loved…” — Our Whiskey Lullaby

“A few times a year, there’s an excitement building among the girls/ladies in our family. It starts a few weeks before the release date of the newest Nancy Drew PC game, and by the time we actually have it in hand and installed, we’re all super ready!” — Hope’s Cafe

“I was really surprised at the level of scares in GTH. After SAW, I thought that HeR was starting to turn down the scares, but they proved me wrong. This game is definitely the scariest to date, not to mention a obvious effort the artists put into Charlotte. GTH will without a doubt be going up on my list of favorites.”

While it does have a couple of minor issues, overall Ghost of Thornton Hall is a thoroughly satisfying experience that you can get at a bargain price. While the book series might be geared towards a younger audience, the games seem to be more of a fun-for-all-ages endeavor, meaning anyone that isn’t a grumpy curmudgeon should be able to enjoy this. If Ghost of Thornton Hall is any indication, Nancy Drew is a strong adventure series and worth checking out regardless of your age. — Gamecola

Nancy Drew is part of a popular genre that has players searching scenes for clues to solve crimes. While Her Interactive has long made those titles for PC, it is growing into a big business on mobile devices. –VentureBeat

I thoroughly enjoyed the hour I spent with Nancy Drew: Ghost Of Thornton Hall. It’s directional tap-driven navigation may take some getting used to at first, especially given that swipe gestures don’t work here, but after one has spent a few minutes with it the control system just feels natural. — 148Apps

First game and I was impressed

The puzzles are hard but that's what you tube is for!
I was actually really scared when I saw Charlotte when my best friend came over she was impressed with the game

Loved it!

Used to play them on my old desktop. Thought they would just become a part of the past, then I saw this game on my tablet and didn't hesitate! Would love it if some of the old cases became available on the tablet though. Really hoping the Salem becomes available soon!

Loved It

This was the first game I bought of the series. I had bought the full version of the kindle game for 5.99 and had instantly loved it. When i figured out it was a PC series I instantly bought the PC version. I think t5his game has a great strategy and wil train your brain so much. It's also so fun. The puzzles are challenging.

Nancy Drew Ghost of Thorton Hall

There needs to be more mobile Nancy Drew games available!

Creepy & Captivating!

GREAT game! It has a solid storyline, interesting characters, and unexpected spooks throughout the entire thing--along with an eerie vibe with all the fog and ghosts!

Only warning: play in a DARK room. I wound up setting up a comfy spot in my closet to avoid glare on my laptop. But that just made it spookier, so that's not even a complaint!

I would absolutely recommend this game!
I hope to see more spooky, ghostly ND games in the future!

AMAZING!

I didn't think there could be a game to top Silent Spy, but I do believe that Ghost of Thornton Hall has done just that. Flawless, the story, the characters, the acting, the movement all absolutely perfect.

I love that the characters all have backstories that really help players connect to the game.

EXCELLENT

Being a woman of 24 years of age, I’m always scared that I’m going to outgrow these games, but clearly that hasn’t happened yet. This is one of my favorites. It’s intriguing and spooky, keeping you on your toes until the very last second and wanting to believe the story. This is a game that I will play again and again. Thank you for always bringing your best to these games. I can never get enough.

Excellent for iPad & Tablets!

Thank you SO MUCH for putting this game on the Apple App and Google Play stores!! I love the fact that I can play this on my iPad! Please please add more ND games for our iPads & tablets!! 🙂

Ms.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PUTTING THIS GAME ON THE IPAD! Please please add more!! 🙂

Frightening Family

Charlotte Thornton died the night of her 21st birthday, and ever since she's haunted Blackrock Island, her former home. Jessalyn Thornton is about to be married, but has mysteriously disappeared while spending the night on Blackrock Island with her friend Addison. Did Jessalyn discover some long buried family secret on the island, or did Charlotte's vengeful spirit whisk her away forever?

The atmosphere of this game is great, the music, the design, it's all fabulously spooky. This is one of my favorite games. There's an added bonus with this game because there are different possibilities on the ending depending on the choices you make, I wish all the games had that!

Clara Thornton

Clara is the CEO of the family business and Thornton family matriarch. She grew up in this house which holds many memories. How much is she willing to share with you? Although clearly distraught over her missing daughter, is Clara hiding valuable information about Jessalyn’s disappearance?

 

Is Clara Thornton hiding valuable information?

 

 

Wade Thornton

Having a shady past makes Wade an embarrassment to Clara but with a strong sense of duty he has returned to Thornton Hall to help track down Jessalyn. Wade reached out to Savannah for help since he believes in the supernatural. Could his knowledge and skills prove he has another motive for being here?

 

Is Wade Thornton a suspect?

 

 

Harper Thornton

Harper is known for being the crazy black sheep of the family and is kept a secret from outsiders for the sake of the untarnished family name. She believes that her older sister, Charlotte, was murdered long ago. Could her theory be true or is she simply a dangerous distraction to your investigation?

 

Could Harper Thornton be right?

 

 

Colton Birchfield

Colton is Jessalyn’s fiancé and comes across as charming and suave, and seems genuinely concerned for her. Although the marriage appears to have Clara’s blessing, there seems to be some behind-the-scenes tension with his own family. Can Colton be trusted? Or is he as adept as Clara at creating a perfect façade?

 

Can Jessalyn's fiance be trusted?

 

 

Jessalyn Thornton

Jessalyn and her best friend, Addison, visited Thornton Hall for a pre-wedding celebration and sleepover when Jessalyn suddenly went missing. Was she kidnapped or has something terrible happened to her in the haunted hall?

 

Was Jessalyn Thornton kidnapped or worse?

 

 

Savannah Woodham

Your ghost hunter and phone friend, Savannah Woodham, calls you in to investigate Jessalyn’s disappearance at the haunted Thornton Hall. She needs your help and believes that a logical-thinking investigator would survive long enough to track down Clara’s daughter.

 

Savannah Woodham asked Nancy Drew to investigate the mystery

 

 

Addison Hammond

Addison Hammond (phone friend) is Jessalyn’s best friend who spent the night with her at Thornton Hall. Not nearly as brave as Jessalyn, Addison has been really shaken up over the fun-turned-traumatizing night and might not be comfortable discussing the strange happenings with just anybody.

 

Does Addison Hammond have information about the mystery?

 

Bess and Ned

Your friends Bess Marvin and Ned Nickerson return as your helpful phone friends and voice of reason for this odd and creepy case. Give them a call for a tip when you get stuck or don’t know where to turn!

 

Bess Marvin and Ned Nickerson help Nancy Drew investigate

 

 

Charlotte Thornton

Charlotte died the night of her 21st birthday in a suspicious fire. Although it appeared to be an accident, her haunting may indicate that there is more to the story. Could her ghost be back for revenge? Did she kidnap Jessalyn? How real is Charlotte to the visitors who meet her?
