Nancy Drew fans of all ages now have another platform to interact with their favorite teen detective. In addition to reading the mystery books and playing Her Interactive Nancy Drew PC games, fans can now purchase Nancy Drew adventures for the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad.
This new app by Her Interactive, creator of Nancy Drew computer games, is part game and part story. The interactive app lets players decide how the story will unfold as they play games and solve mysteries.
“With our new Nancy Drew Mobile Mysteries apps, we’re melding the elements of a great mystery novel with the interactive experience of a video game to introduce a story-based gamebook,” says Megan Gaiser, CEO of Her Interactive. “You’re no longer just reading a Nancy Drew mystery; you’re fully engaged and influencing how the mystery unfolds as you play the story.”
The name of the first of the Nancy Drew mobile mystery apps is Shadow Ranch HD for the iPad and Shadow Ranch for the iPhone and iTouch. Reading and game play are both a big part of solving the mystery. The iPad version, although a few dollars more, offers not only HD, but the ability for moms and daughters to play together more easily. And since girls have loved Nancy Drew mysteries for decades, they are great for intergenerational sharing.
