“A great adventure game that will require thought and perseverance to finish. The story is exciting and offers a little spookiness in the beginning; in fact, some younger players may be scared at first, which parents should be aware of. Whether your kids are Nancy Drew fans or not, this game will interest most teens and many adults, as well.” ~PC GameZone
“Ghost Dogs isn’t a bad little game and deserves the FFC thumb up! It’s the perfect game for a beginner just starting out or an experienced adventurer looking for a mystery that isn’t too tough on those “little grey cells.” ~FourFatChicks
“I would recommend any and all of the titles in this series to adventure gamers everywhere. Of the lot, Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake is one of the best. I am pleased that Her Interactive acquired the rights to produce these games, and that there are more to come. I think that if you want the gaming equivalent of slipping into your favorite PJs and coziest chair for an engaging and fun mental diversion, you can’t go wrong with Nancy Drew in general, and Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake in particular. So with that in mind, this reviewer highly recommends Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake.” ~Mr. Bill’s Adventureland

I loved it! this was a very fun game! I played it with my three sisters(Avery and Bethany) we all shared the mouse but it was hard believe me!!! I liked the speakeasy and Sally's house and the ghost dogs were cool I loved this game and I think anyone would!!!!!
this game was super fun! but super short it took me like one day to solve the mystery. I loved the places you could explore although i got lost in the forest maze several times when trying to get to the cemetery, all and all this game was really fun!
This game is one of my favorites. I like the characters the places you could explore and finding bugs and birds. And the music is awesome!
Gamers Beware! These are not very friendly dogs but this is an awesome game and there is always a very rational explanation.....WHO LET THE GHOST DOGS OUT???? Haha!
This game is so great I want to play it over and over again (and I have :D). I love exploring the forest and taking pictures of different birds. Overall, great game!
I've played this game twice now and both in one day! This is a great beginner game! It is fun, well made, easy, and quick!
This game is without a doubt one of the spookiest Nancy Drew games out there. I think it is right up there with Thornton Hall and Crystal Skull! The characters were a little bit creepy, especially Em. It was cool to learn about the 20s. Also, because of this game I still know the scientific name for the barred owl: strix varia!
I just finished solving this ND game !!! I've been playing these games since the beginning !!! This one is by far one of my all time favorites !!! Love the scenery and the chance to spend so much time outside !!!!! And I must say that this game's puzzles didn't stress me out like today's puzzles do. I had a lot of fun solving this one !!!
I played this with my best friend two or three years ago, and it's one of the memories I'll never forget. It was so much fun to talk about the game and laugh the whole way through. The critters puzzle wasn't my favorite, but hilarious as I would make her do that part because I got too scared. The bird puzzle was very long and tiresome as well, but not terrible. The plot was pretty good (the ghost dogs were adorable, lol I love dogs) and the characters were ok. I honestly did prefer to learn about Malone than talk to any of the characters but that's my opinion. All in all I give this game a 4/5.
Ghost dogs are attacking Sally's cabin at moon lake, she's fled in terror and Nancy is there all alone. Who could be behind these vicious attacks?
Okay so I love the fact that there is a hidden speakeasy from prohibition and we get to explore it. There are only three suspects in this case but there are clues that point to all of them so it's not any easier to solve until you get to the end. The scene where the dogs attack the house is startling the first time you watch it, but it a good way. In this game we get to take pictures of birds, hunt for bugs, escape a burning building and learn about an old gold heist...gold hmm?
The owner of Emily’s Emporium seems friendly enough, but why is she so unwilling to lend equipment when you need it the most? Perhaps Emily has something to hide and doesn’t want to give away the tools to solve the case.
Jeff is the disgruntled local park ranger with family ties to the Malone legend. He has access to information that no one else knows, so could he be on the hunt for buried treasure? What means would he take to stop others and to keep it all for himself?
Others may be creeped out by the darkness, but Red, an avid bird watcher, sleeps during the day so he can make bird calls at night. Fascinated by unsolved mysteries, this strange suspect may be after the fame of unearthing a mobster’s treasure.
