Back in December of last year we reported on the Agatha Christie: ABC Murders game and the fact it would be coming to mobile devices soon. Currently available for consoles, Mac, and PC, this particular game isn’t a hidden object title, which most games of this nature end up being. Instead, the developers are pegging this as an adventure/mystery game with a “riveting story line, clever puzzles, investigation and adventure pieces”.
For those of you not familiar with this game, or the actual book, Agatha Christia: ABC Murders has players following the character Hercule Poirot from the Agatha Christie novels, who is tasked by Scotland Yard with solving a series of murders that are being committed by someone taunting the police, and specifically Poirot, with letters signed by “A.B.C.”.
What makes things interesting is that the letters tell where and when the next murder is supposed to occur, but not directly of course. In addition to this information, the killer is working his or her way through the alphabet, using victim names. For example, A-lice A-scher is a tobacco shop owner killed in her shop in A-ndover, B-etty B-arnard is a flirtatious waitress killed in B-exhill and Sir C-armichael C-larke is a wealthy man killed at home in C-hurston.
The majority of the game will be played our in a point-and-click adventure game format, although you’ll be doing other activities when it comes to some of the puzzles that you’ll need to solve in order to stop more murders from happening. This includes interrogating suspects too. If you’re waiting for this game, you’ll be able to grab a copy off of Google Play this September 29th, 2016 and it will cost you $6.99 to get one.
