Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies Computer Game - Weave Your Way Through the Maze of Deceit - Review & Giveaway - ends 11/7 US

We love our computer games.  Ever since we got our first computer, playing games on them have always been a pleasant past time.  One of our favorite types to play is a mystery game.  One of our favorite computer game sleuths is Nancy Drew.

The Nancy Drew computer game series from Her Interactive are rewarding and really brings out your cognitive abilities of deduction.  In every Nancy Drew game, one can either play at Amateur level (my usual level) or Master Sleuth level.  If you make a mistake, you can erase those "faux pas" without having to start all over again.  (Like if you ever get Nancy killed by accident like I have done many times.)

Since we love mystery games, it was really our pleasure to review the latest of our favorite sleuth's game of Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies.

Thread Your Way Through a Maze of Deceit in this Epic Greek Drama!

A museum curator hires you to assist with the most anticipated event of the year, but artifacts from the exhibit are mysteriously disappearing. Are these mishaps connected to the amphitheater’s upcoming performance? Or is an unseen villain pulling strings behind the scenes? Uncover the truth and recover the missing artifacts from the Labyrinth of Lies!

Organize Greek Displays and Exhibits! 
Fill in for the museum curator and assemble exhibits before the grand opening
--You always learn something interesting when you are helping Nancy out with these everyday tasks she needs to get done

Use Stagecraft Expertise to Survive Backstage! 
Sneak behind the curtains to explore the treacherous underworld stage sets
--Be careful, there are always ways that may get Nancy in a bad situation!

Experience the World of Ancient Greece! 
Solve challenging puzzles based on actual Greek myths and artwork
--The puzzles sometimes can be a bit difficult, but you always feel a great accomplishment when they are finished.

The Hardy Boys are On the Line! 
Use your in-game mobile phone to hear potentially lifesaving tips from Frank and Joe
--I always like to call up Frank and Joe for help, and sometimes their help is truly invaluable!

Select Difficulty Levels! 
Play at Amateur or Master Sleuth level and erase any mistakes without starting over

Since we just got this game last week, I am still about halfway through Labyrinth of Lies.  I am not one to rush a good mystery game.  I like to savor them.  I can tell you this: the graphics are beautiful, and the music is nice to listen to as you are playing.  The characters have great backgrounds and are quite interesting.  The game does start out seemingly easy, but as it is progressing, it is getting a little more difficult and challenging - just the way I like it!

Would you Dare to Play Nancy's latest Greek mystery and weave your way through the maze of lies? This game is rated E10+ for everyone with just some mild violence.   Purchase Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies directly at Her Interactive or at a store near you.  If you do purchase at Her Interactive, a downloadable strategy guide is included.

Under Wraps Available on DVD - Fun Halloween Movie the Whole Family Can Watch Together - Review

The DVD was provided to me in order for me to facilitate an honest review. No other form of compensation was exchanged. Regardless, all thoughts are my own honest opinions!

Here's a great new cartoon the whole family can watch together for Halloween!

Under Wraps

Starring the voice talents of Brooke Shields, Drake Bell, and Matthew Lillard

Danny and older sister Eleanor fall into an adventure of a lifetime when Danny accidentally unleashes a centuries old curse involving mummies, pharaohs and nefarious villains! When their archaeologist parents go on an expedition to an ancient Pharaoah’s last resting place, Danny sneaks into the tomb and finds a sacred amulet, which he takes home. When he accidentally breaks the amulet, all sorts of chaos follows, starting with his parents turning into mummies! Eleanor and Danny frantically look for clues to solve this nightmare but the police, an evil assistant, and a mysterious visitor from the past are suddenly getting too close for comfort.

From Kickstart and Arc Entertainment, my whole family found Under Wraps to be a fun Halloween movie that we will be on our Halloween lineup for years to come.  It's a fun tale where children can see, through a neat Halloween-ish story line, that to disobey can lead to some disastrous consequences.  Danny does learn that cooperation is the key to undoing the curse that he brought back home.

Under Wraps is a 45 minute animated adventure that has a PG rating for some scary images, rude humor, and action, and has the "Family Approval" from the Dove Foundation.  Purchase Under Wraps at Amazon today.
