A Wonderful Game!

This game is by far one of the best games in the series. It has some of the best music, the characters are all fun to get to know and very diverse, and the puzzles/minigames are so much fun to play over and over. As another reviewer said, the Poe theme was so awesome and it got me deeply fascinated in his writings. A five star game, all the way!

A Poe Laced Mystery

Great game. The settings were marvelous and I really enjoyed the rich detail of the library. I have always been a fan of Poe stories and consequently I was delighted to learn this game had Poe as a theme. Made me want to go back and re-read his works. I always get a kick out of the little fun things added like the bathroom moments, the fall and winter weather changes, and hearing the background noises at Nancy's
desk. Trying to sneak around at night was fun as well. Thank you.

Izzy Romero

The Queen Bee herself, Izzy is at the top of the social ladder. She’s the student body president and the life of the party. Keeping her crown as the queen of the school is no easy feat though. Is she resorting to scare tactics to keep everyone else from threatening her position at the top?


Nancy Drew Character: Izzy


Mel Corbalis

A self-professed outcast and a recluse, Mel spends most of her time disliking the social cliques in school and practicing her cello. She was automatically accepted because she comes from a long line of alumnae, but she doesn’t really want to attend Waverly. Would she send threats to the other girls to bring down the social ladder?


Nancy Drew Character: Mel


Leela Yadav

Leela is the all-star athlete, who is as fierce at competing academically as she is on the soccer field. With the race for valedictorian heating up and the contenders so close in rank, would Leela’s need to win at all costs drive her to make drastic plans to gain the competitive edge?


Nancy Drew Character: Leela


Corine Myers

Although Corine may be the smartest of the valedictorian candidates, she doesn’t really fit in with the group. The other girls think she tries too hard to be popular and don’t include her in their parties. If Corine can’t join the ‘in-crowd’, then maybe she can get their attention in other ways…


Nancy Drew Character: Corine


Rachel Hubbard

Three weeks ago, Rachel nearly had the title for valedictorian in the bag, but then she failed a test! In order for her to regain the lead, all of the other girls would also need to fail a test or paper. Scaring the other girls with threatening notes from the Black Cat would certainly distract them from their studies…


Nancy Drew Character: Rachel
