“In short, Nancy Drew: The Creature of Kapu Cave is an excellent game in an excellent series of games. Although the Nancy Drew series is ostensibly designed for young girls, all fans of adventure games owe it to themselves to give these fine games a chance.” ~Adventure Classic Gaming

“I enjoyed this game for most of the reasons I have liked previous games in this series. What is improved is that Her Interactive has tried to take the graphic design element to a higher level. This will help the games to grow with their players. The inclusion of new playable characters, Frank and Joe Hardy, also broadens the game’s appeal and adds more flavour to the gameplay.” ~Adventure Gamers

The plot of this game is very well done and diversified. As Nancy, we get to explore the jungle and discover many things about entomology; and as the Hardy boys, we get to walk on the beach, go scuba diving and do many things related to Hawaiian culture. Being able to switch characters gives the Creature of Kapu Cave a good "playing pace"; indeed, instead of only calling the Hardy boys to get hints, we get to play as them to find those hints and give them to Nancy, in addition to conducting their own investigation. I really loved this aspect of the game, after all, it is the first time we get to play with another character.

This Nancy Drew is one of my favorite ND games! It is exotic and very interesting from a educational point of view. I really loved all the scientific part of the plot, and the overall atmosphere of the game.
I clearly recommand it: Creature of Kapu Cave is a really good game with a nice plot, nice characters and nice puzzles.

This is definitely one of my favorite Nancy drew games! I love how it takes place in Hawaii and all of the fun games in it. My favorite part is that you are able to play as Nancy, Frank, or Joe. I would love if another game featured the Hardy Boys also!


The Best of Both Worlds

Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, one the of the best cross-over teams in history. This game lets you play as all three while exploring a creepy and beautiful Island in Hawaii. With Nancy, Frank and Joe all in the same game - this is one of my all time favorite games.


I love this game!

This was my first Nancy Drew game I ever played, I got this game as a gift back in 2009 and I have been meaning to review it for forever! Like all devoted Nancy Drew Fans, the first game I ever played will always hold a special place in my heart. This game is perfect for beginners because it's easy to follow and it has the Hardy Boys in it! The only thing I really didn't like about this game was the frass sorting, which is the hardest puzzle of the game.


My favorite

The scenery is very picturesque , you get to see Hawaii. I like the activities that you get to do when you play as Frank or Joe. Swimming, making necklaces, collecting shells, eating shave ice and other activities bring fun in this game!

A highly recommended game!

I have played all Nancy games, but this one is an absolute favorite !!!

Great Game for a Great Place!

This is such a wonderful game for the beginning scientist of the future! From entomology to botany, this game has the near perfect balance of mystery, science, and drama! One of my very first games ever and I don't regret it one bit!

The Creature of Kapu Cave is a really good game with a super plot. The scenery is marvelous, and I'm glad you get to see a lot of Hawaii. The character movements aren't the best, but that's okay. I love the activities that you get to do when you play as Frank or Joe. Swimming, making necklaces, collecting shells, eating shave ice...those guys have all the fun in this game!
Nancy, unfortunately, has to do a lot of research on...bugs. Ugh.
She DOES, however, get to interrogate the suspects on her half of the island, and sift through people's pockets and desks (Love that kind of stuff!)
The ending is very satisfying and the plot made sense. Overall, a highly recommended game!

Nancy Drew Character: Quigley

 

 

The Hardy Boys

Frank and Joe are in Hawaii to investigate the Mapu family for any hidden skeletons. With a lucrative endorsement contract on the line for Pua, the Hardy Boys only have a few spare moments to lend Nancy a hand. Ned might be a little jealous, but they’ve got a mystery of their own!

Big Island Mike Mapu

Mike Mapu runs the Immersion Excursion with the help of his daughter Pua, but it seems like the tourists just aren’t interested. He practically has to force tourists to catch fish, string necklaces, and go snorkeling. There may be something shady about the way he does business…

Malachi Craven

Known for his tantrums and running the Hilihili Research compound with an iron fist, this scientist has attracted the funds of many investors. Craven keeps his work highly secretive, so no one knows what’s happening in his lab. What is he working on that he wants to keep top-secret?
