Ghost of Thornton Hall for the iPad!

Hooray! Today is a historic day for Her Interactive! We have launched a full-length mystery onto the iPad! Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall used to be available exclusively for PC and Mac computers, but is now available in the iPad App store here. The Android and Kindle Fire versions will release later.

I’m excited! Are you going to get Nancy’s scariest case on your device? (I’ve seen the animation run a lot more advanced than on the computer version…it looks so great!)

Side note: we have a flash sale in honor of Mardi Gras today! It only lasts for a few more hours, so if you don’t have Nancy Drew: Legend of the Crystal Skull, it’s a grand time to get it!

Not green and pink…that was in Venice.

  1. I’m so excited iGTH is finally here!!:D I was only able to play like 5 minutes of it… Because I’d just gotten in from surgery and was still half drugged.. There was no way I could concentrate lol I tired! I couldn’t even spell “Thornton” right when I was searching for the app;D hehe
    I watched Frozen instead.
    So, yeah.. I’m definitely gonna play tomorrow.

    Woo-hoo! I’m soooooooooo excited!!!
    As soon as GTH comes out for the Kindle Fire, it’s mine lol. XD
    Also, LJ, I saw your secret message! ‘Not green and pink…that was in Venice’ :O What’s that supposed to mean!?!?!?! Are you hinting to someone other than Sonny Joon?!?!? If so, and Sonny’s not in MED, I’ll be mad. LOL I’ll still play it, but I still reeeaaallly want to see SJ!!! Just my opinion though 🙂

    I got GTH for iPad and I’m loving it!! You guys have done a spectacular job! The only feature I would have added would have been something to help players identify selectable objects easier; other than that, its perfect!

    Also, as for the CRY sale – I already have two copies of it! 🙂

    Wait. The animation for GTH is better on the ipad than on a computer? That makes no sense!

    *Gasps* I saw your hidden message LJ! “Not green and pink, that was in Venice.”

    I am a total genius.

  5. YAY! Congratulations HeR! I bought it and it’s really amazing! It’s kind of interesting to see a computer game on a tablet. If this is successful, are you going to transfer other games onto tablets? Maybe you guys should consider doing the Dossier series onto tablets, since hidden object mystery games are so in right now in that target audience with iPhones and iPads. And something hidden in the blog post. “Not pink and green. That was in Venice”. Well I know that’s Sonny Joon reference, so is his hair maybe blue and purple?

      Hi Sarah! The next Nancy Drew game that will be available on the iPad will be Codes & Clues. Perhaps in the future adventure games there will be more for tablets!

    How do you move the letters in the cotton gin puzzle on an ipad?

  11. Sarah says:

    Please make more games for iPad!!! I had to stop playing after Shadow Ranch was released because my computer broke and I never got another. Now I only have an iPad and it was SO great to be able to play again. I’d happily pay more than $6 for the next one.

  12. Sandy Taylor says:

    The game is stuck where you enter the names on the locket. How do I reset it?

  13. Nancy says:

    Should I be able to move letters around in the letters that contain glues? Specifically the cotton gin letter…I can’t figure out how to move the letters when I unscramble. Thanjd

    I love Nancy Drew games and was so excited to see one for the IPad. I’ve played ghost of Thornton Hall before, on my PC, but enjoy replaying these games. Unfortunately the IPad version seems to glitch in the graveyard.Every time I try to go the part of the graveyard that has the tombstones of the workers, the game locks up. My IPad is pretty new and has plenty of room. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling but the same glitch continues. There hasn’t been an update for the app in 3 years. Is there a chance this will be fixed?

    • Little Jackalope says:

      Hello Anne! I’m sorry the game is having trouble on the iPad. The game worked best on the iOS that was available at the time of its release, so if you have an updated system, it’s possible it would have some running issues. Would you please alert us at Thanks!

    Hello, Her interactive family!
    I loved playing GTH on iPad. Lots of fun!
    Please please please release more ND games on the iPad.
    I hope it’ll happen in the near future.
