Agatha Christie: The A.B.C. Murders


First published in 1936, The A.B.C. Murders was the seventeenth novel from prolific mystery writer Agatha Christie. It's now become the seventh Agatha Christie video game to be released in recent years, and the first to appear exclusively on the...

Two storylines, so if you've read the book, you can still be surprised by the ending; fans of Agatha Christie may enjoy the "hidden" facts about the author

Tedious math problems and riddles comprise most of the gameplay; wonky game logic and save system may force you to replay whole sections; no exploration, clue finding, or deduction to speak of

Die-hard Agatha Christie fans and those who enjoy doing math for fun might find The A.B.C. Murders tolerable. Everyone else probably won't.

The ABC Murders is definitely a hard game to judge. Personally I found it a bit on the dull side but perhaps it might make an ideal Christmas present for a more elderly relative, as long as they have a DS that is.

Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders


Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders for DS Review - Its flaws will only be forgiven by stringent Agatha Christie fans. Those looking for a game to kill the wait for the next Professor Layton, however, will be disappointed.

Authentic dialogue

Boring puzzles
