Although, as I said before, I enjoyed the game, there were a few parts I did not like:

I HATED, HATED, HATED the snakes! There was a discussion in the Forum a while back about games with snakes, and the concensus was, most of us don't like them. However, I do see the logic of it, since a snake was supposedly involved in the death of the original actress (though that later turned out not to be true).

I also wasn't fond of the crows, but at least they weren't slithering, hissing or rattling. My main problem, even though I figured out the color connection on my own, was finding and clicking the items fast enough. Had to repeat that sequence several times before getting through it.

Some of the mini games required fast clicking, which is hard for me. For instance, the smoothies and the lock picking.

The rocks/bombs game at the end was difficult; also took me several times to finish that.

Anyway, I still would play the sequel.

help, I'm stuck in the wardrobe where the star's locker is locked up. I have four bottons that are color coded. What order do they need to be in. I've tried every way that I can and I can't get it to unlock.

Hi Gracealma- Look at the burnt out lightbulbs around the mirror--- inside will tell you the order to push the buttons on the safe

HI all new here. I can't for the life of me figure out what to do with the poster and the codes. Anyone fill me in please? Leaves me stuck in the game. It was easier to figure out the code earlier linking letters with hieroglyphics. But I don't even know what to DO with them now.

Hi Whipfish- welcome to the forums!

Are you at the naha haje part?

Click on the snake in the poster and it will show a close up- then match up the symbols from the decoder- you will get a series of letters (music notes)

After purchasing the last 3 and not being able to complete them even with the offical guides, I pass on purchasing this one. I did play a demo and found it much easier to play then the other 3. Good luck to everyone!!!! And HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!

I am enjoying the game but I am stuck in the room with the crows. I cannot seem to get through with them before time runs out and I have to start again. Is there a trick I am not seeing?

Hi momgonenutzinmem- welcome to the forums!

Her Interactive does not adapt thier games for mac. I would suggest going to thier site and requesting they do so. Maybe if they get enough requests, they will in the future.

I have two pictures of the Crows that are lighted pictures where you can actually see the Crows and the matching objects. In each picture the items are color coded.

If you go to photobucket.com and do an image serach for Nancy Drew Crows you will be able to see these two lighted pictures.

Good luck and have fun!

Yes, I have the other Nancy Drews and can't get anywhere with them either and I have the strategy books as well!

I fell in love with this one and have been very dissappointed with this problem I'm having.

You've been great. Thanks alot. Wish me luck this time around!


guylee1, trembly6: (And to others who are having the same problem)

Which other Nancy Drew mysteries do you have and why are you having such issues getting through them? Have you played them on junior detective mode or senior mode? What kind of problems are you encountering in finishing them? Have you resorted to using hints and tools from the herinteractive website? Have you resorted to walkthroughs to help you get through certain parts of the games? Have the tutorials and strategy guides not been helpful? Although I have found most of the games challenging to various degrees, I have only found one that I couldn't complete to its end. . .I am curious as to what you are encountering that is keeping you from finishing the games. . .

You need a score of 300,000 or better to get the alternate ending.
