“The Her Interactive "Nancy Drew" series has achieved great popularity because all of the games feature two compelling components: a great mystery and fascinating puzzles. "Warnings at Waverly Academy" is no exception.“ ~USAToday

ehh its ok

this isn't a BAD game at all, but it def isn't one of the great ones. the puzzles are a little more challenging for my liking, and u need to get some online help with a lot of them. and to be honest its just not that fun of a game. the puzzles are quite dull. I played senior detective, beat in 3 days.

This was actually my first game, I got from my brother for my 15th birthday and I've playing them ever since, they're literally the only types of games I play!

This game is awesome! One of my all time favorites. I could play it over and over and never get tired of it.

The Best!!

This was the first ND game I had ever played and ever since i've played almost all of them, but they have never beat this one. I wish all of them were like Waverly!!!!

This is by far my favourite game - it has the perfect scattering of mini games and so much of that that tingling feeling when you roam the halls at night- I just love it so much

 by Budford
All Time favorite!

If you are looking for the perfect Nancy Drew game this is the one!

 by Storm

The array of different female characters, the boarding school setting, cool puzzles, and creepiness factor all made this game a favorite of mine. Helps I'm a Poe fan, too. 🙂

Really enjoyed this game! Loved the air hockey, darts and snack shop.

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…
