“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 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!

Dr. Quigley Kim

An absent-minded bug scientist, Dr. Kim is working to gain fame and funding. Too bad all the money is going to Craven’s sophisticated facility instead. How far would she go to discover the latest breakthrough in entomology?


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!


Nancy Drew Character: Hardy Boys



Pua Mapu

She spends her days training to become a professional surfer and claims that she doesn’t have time for anything else. Secretive and talented, Pua also helps her dad, Big Island Mike, at the Immersion Excursion.


Nancy Drew Character: Pua



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…


Nancy Drew Character: Mike



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?
