That’s why the authorities asked you, as detective Nancy Drew, to join the case to infiltrate a dangerous crime syndicate and catch this phantom thief before he or she destroys the heart of Venice in Nancy Drew: The Phantom of Venice!

Game Assets

“Nancy Drew: The Phantom of Venice is a strong addition to the teenage sleuth’s catalogue of mystery games. If you’re new to the series, you may think it a better choice for your daughter than yourself, but the story is mature enough and the puzzles sufficiently challenging that adult players will find it at least as entertaining as their children. If you’re on the hunt for a fun and stimulating point-and-click adventure, look no further. “ ~Gamezebo

“It’s clear that the people at Her Interactive love making these games – and as a result, it’s hard for the player not to love them, too.” ~Just Adventure


“Her Interactive’s Nancy Drew: The Phantom of Venice is a wonderful game that is well worth the attention and dollars of anyone even remotely interested in modern point-and-click adventures. As I have said time and time again, do not be confused into thinking this and other Nancy Drew games are only good for children and young teens. They are quality entertainment for anyone who enjoys adventuring and puzzle solving. This latest installment is among the best of the bunch, and anyone who has been missing out on this great series must consider picking it up.” ~Adventure Classic Gaming
