Nancy Drew®: Treasure in the Royal Tower

Follow Ancient Clues to Find Marie Antoinette’s Legendary Secret!

While snowed-in at the Wickford Castle Ski Resort you, as Nancy Drew, are trapped in a place that’s as strange as its history. The castle is a riddle, full of dead-ends and detours that hint at a legend left behind by Marie Antoinette! Solve baffling puzzles, search concealed rooms, interview evasive suspects, and sidestep danger on the hunt for a secret that the doomed queen was desperate to hide in Nancy Drew: Treasure in the Royal Tower.

Please Note: The physical version of this game is sold out and has been officially retired, however, the digital download version is still available.

“Every step Nancy takes builds on what she has learned and it all rolls out in a very logical way. This allows a player to advance without a lot of the frustrations found in other games and really helps to get the gumshoe juices flowing. This helps to provide the game a nice equilibrium to gameplay, which benefits those looking for a challenging, but enjoyable gaming experience.” ~Adventure Gamers

“The storyline is greatly enhanced by its historical elements. Marie "Let Them Eat Cake" Antoinette has always been a controversial figure, and it's good fun to have a character in the game who's bent on proving a wildly revisionist picture of the doomed queen.” ~Just Adventure

“On the plus side, as we said before, Treasure in the Royal Tower delivers the expected puzzles and riddles. Without saying they're all realistic situations (they aren't), they are fun to solve.” ~Gamer's Info

“I must say that I have enjoyed the other games more than this game. The story is interesting, though not exciting enough that will keep you at the edge of your seat. The puzzles are fun to solve, though some of them can be too challenging for younger gamers. Even though the game may not be the best in the series, Nancy Drew: Treasure in the Royal Tower is still a welcomed challenge for fans of Nancy Drew.” ~ Adventure Classic Gaming

A Masterpiece in Mystery

Having played nearly every Nancy Drew game, I can confidently say this particular installment ranks among the top 5 in the series. From the moment I began, I was captivated by its intricate storyline, immersive puzzles, and the beautifully rendered environments that transported me directly into Nancy's world.

One of my dreams is to see these amazing games come to other consoles or even remastered. The depth and quality of this game deserve a wider audience, and I can only imagine how incredible the experience would be with enhanced graphics and smoother controls on modern consoles. Whether you're a longtime fan of Nancy Drew or new to the series, this game is a must-play. It stands as a testament to the enduring appeal of Nancy Drew and showcases why these games remain beloved by so many.

A fave for sure

Definitely one of the best ND games. I've played almost all of them and the earlier ones are the best. Everything from this game is so captivating; the story, the castle and the characters.

Got Me Hooked

My Nancy Drew sleuthing days started with "Hello Miss Drew, Did you get squared away upstairs?" I've been hooked ever since I played Treasure In The Royal tower. This game is amazing! The plot, The characters, the story line. Every time I play this game I relive great memories. I wish all future Nancy Drew games are like this!

The best

I have played so many Nancy Drew games and this is still by far my favourite. It is classic, the puzzles are fantastic, the story is great, the setting is lovely, and the characters are interesting as well. I've played this game a million times and it never gets old!!!

A classic favorite

This game is a classic but I love the mystery, plot and puzzles in this game. I really miss playing it but I remember getting lost multiple times in this game. 😀

A Classic

This game has an amazing story. I love how the writers tie Marie Antoinette into the plot line and how eccentric Prof. Hotchkiss is! The castle is beautiful and the music is great. Harpsichord Enchantment might be one of my all-time favorite Nancy Drew Game songs.

One of my favorites!

This is one of my favorite Nancy Drew games out of all the other Nancy Drew games I've played. What I've noticed is the old ones are a little easier and alot short while the newer ones get challenging and a re a little longer. Overall, I wish I could play this game again! 🙂
