Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies Review + Giveaway



I have been a huge fan of Nancy Drew since I was young enough to play games on the computer. Before then I was even borrowing the Nancy Drew Mysteries from my local Library. I love the mystery and how relatable Nancy is. My first game I purchased was Stay Tuned For Danger and I was hooked. 17 years later and nothing has changed.

Her Interactive strives to make fun and inspiring games for girls ages 10 to adult. They create high quality synergy between game play, story and aesthetics that result in a fun and engaging experience. I was more than excited when I received an email about reviewing one of their newest games, Labyrinth of Lies. It has been a few years since I was able to sit down with a good mystery game, so I couldn’t wait to try it out. The last game I played was Danger on Deception Island which is also one of my favorites.


Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies starts out with you, playing as Nancy, traveling all the way to Greece and being hired as an assistant to a museum curator but artifacts from different exhibits are starting to dissapear, and it just so happens one of the exhibits involves a play called Persephone in Winter. This game features a lot of great artificats and tons on information and ancient Greece. That is one thing that I love about the Nancy Drew games is that they also teach you a ton of things all while you are using your brain to figure out who, or what, did it. Check out what all you get to do in this game:

  • Organize Greek Displays and Exhibits! Fill in for the museum curator and assemble exhibits before the grand opening
  • Use Stagecraft Expertise to Survive Backstage! Sneak behind the curtains to explore the treacherous underworld stage sets
  • Experience the World of Ancient Greece! Solve challenging puzzles based on actual Greek myths and artwork
  • The Hardy Boys are On the Line! Use your in-game mobile phone to hear potentially lifesaving tips from Frank and Joe
  • Select Difficulty Levels! Play at Amateur or Master Sleuth level and erase any mistakes without starting over

This game took around a three days for me to finally complete. One thing I loved in other Nancy Drew games is that the entire game spanded over how ever long you wished for it to go on. Meaning she had to go up to her room and go to sleep and usually something mysterious would happen while she was in bed. This game was centered around one day, which made it a little shorter than the older games. The graphics in this game were amazing and every little thing was very detailed, which is one reason I love Her Interactive. While it did take my some figuring out to get past all of the games, it was still a lot of fun. While this game is recommended for ages 10+, I would actually recommend it for around 15+.  I do not want to spoil the ending, but you will never see it coming and it was a total surprise!
