The last one of this series of Agatha Christie hidden object games is based on the book of the same name. It’s the longest of the three games that are included in this set.
The Dead Man’s Folly tells the story of Mrs Oliver, a popular author, friend with Poirot who is asked to write the plot of a murder party. However, Mrs Oliver doesn’t feel good vibes in Nasse House where the party is going to be held. She thus asks Poirot to come and find out what is going on in this house where all characters, from the owners, George Stubbs and his young wife, to Amy Folliat, the former Nasse House owner. Alas, several murders will happen during the fete and Poirot and Mrs Oliver will be challenged to find the truth.
The game begins with the same comic strip as the two others. However there’s a sligh change in this one: you can get more tips by clicking on the right hidden objects faster. The quicker you find items, the more you’ll get tips. This can come in handy for harder areas in the game.
Like with the Agatha Christie hidden object games, there is an included map that will help you see where you are, select the scene you wish to investigate and see which area is finished.
The murder hunt that is organized by Sir Stubbs will provide you with special clues to gess in some specific areas. These unlock other areas so that you’re able to investigate them in the next level. When you’re done with the game, you have another option that’s unlocked: “Find All”. This lets you see ALL areas to investigate without having to play on a level by level mode.
