If you're looking for an easy, more lackadaisical title to play with minimal online help, this is the one. I've played it through multiple times and the TV puzzle was the only one that proved challenging for me at all. Not much of a storyline, but don't let that dissuade you. Character development was pretty good and I loved the setting and change of pace.
Another good game! I really enjoyed the characters and the whole story line. As usual, you always learn something from ND games. Driving the vehicles was fun, but my driving skills left a lot to be desired. It is amazing that there is so much diversity from game to game, yet each one captures and holds my attention. I highly recommend the Trail of the Twister.
Nancy is in Oklahoma working with a storm chaser team who is plagued by sabotage that could get someone killed!
I live in tornado alley so this game is interesting to me anyway. There are a lot of fun little things in this game. Pa's store is great, all the new candy is the best! The mini game in Pa's store is fun too.
One thing though, I'm grateful mousetraps don't take so long to set up in real life.
This game is awesome! All of the characters and graphics are really good. And you can buy candy 🙂
I was not expecting that I would have to actually control the vehicles in this game. Thankfully, you get to drive the car for the majority and that one is not so bad. It is when you have to drive that battleship.... well let's just say that if my driving performance in that truck happened in real life, I would probably be locked in a closet, never to touch a set of keys to anything ever again. While I did not go Pa Penny farming, it was a fun break when you were recovering from the path of destruction that you left while on the road (the tornadoes could learn a thing or two from my computer driving skills). Out of all the characters, I just love Pa! He was so easy going, which was a refreshing break from Mr. Negativity Team Leader that was more like a brick in quicksand than a stick in the mud. Way to go HI! It is very rare that I will actually develop hatred towards characters, whether it is in games or movies. The only thing I can think of is that the game started off on a very high adrenaline note. However, it took a bit for it to get rolling again, and I can understand how some people might have lost a bit of interest in the beginning. Don't give up on this game. Go there, help the team, chat with Pa, and try to drive better than I did. 😛
This one really didn't hold my interest, although since I haven't finished it, maybe it just starts slow? This game was the first time I ever heard of Jack-a-lopes though, so that is pretty cool.
This game was super fun to play, with its relaxed atmosphere, enjoyable puzzles, and entertaining characters. While many Nancy Drew fans do not consider this game to be one of the best, I must disagree, this game was awesome, it kept my attention and made me feel like I was really getting involved with what the characters were doing.
Trail of the Twister is a great Nancy Drew game for any person to play! What makes it a legitimate game for players of all ages is that it makes the facts and the science of it all FUN! I normally am not science savvy and have not had a history of enjoying science in school, but this game made science fun for me! Nancy Drew games are a must have for everyone because they make learning about anything fun and exciting!
This is a really good game (probably one of my favorites). I liked all of the characters, especially Pa. The graphics are good, the puzzles are OK and actually make sense to what the mystery is about, you can play a really fun mini game at Ma and Pa's, and you can eat candy! I rate this game 5/5.
Leader of the Canute Storm Chasers and professor at the University. Although he might be in charge of the team, he’s quick to blame others for all of the troubles they’re having instead of taking responsibility. Is he trying to divert attention from something he has done?
Debbie is eager, passionate, and dedicated to her work. As Scott’s right hand, she handles the majority of the day to day operations of the team. At times it seems like she does most of the work but receives the least amount of credit, could she be sabotaging the team to show them just how important she really is?
As a meteorology undergrad student, spending his first season out in the field, Chase is a remarkably good mechanic. He is capable of fixing everything from computers to cars, and as far as he’s concerned, “there’s no saboteur, things just get broke and have to be fixed.” If he’s so good with machines, why doesn’t he notice the sabotage, or is he just covering for his own crimes?
Toby “Frosty” Harlow is the team’s media expert who earned his nickname from a close encounter with a large and dangerous storm. The nickname unfortunately went to his head and continues to whet his appetite for fame and fortune. Would he go so far as to sellout his own team just to make his financial dreams come true?
Pa runs the Ma and Pa Convenience Store and local oddity museum (donations welcome). He’s got a lot of experience with Oklahoma weather and seems to think of the researchers as naive city-folk. But out here in ‘the sticks’, Ma and Pa’s is the only place for a team to get supplies and gas. Would Pa stoop to sabotage to keep the storm-chasing clientele coming back for more?
