Based on the Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders novel
Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders is a great new murder mystery game based on the novel (published in 1936). If you haven’t read it, don’t worry – you’ll enjoy the mystery even more!
Find the mysterious ‘ABC’
Take on the role of the famous private detective Hercule Poirot, on a mission to track down a serial killer who goes by the name of ‘ABC’. With 3 cases to solve, this point-and-click adventure will draw you in and leave you wanting to stick with it to the end.
Inspect the crime scenes
In your search to solve the mystery, you will inspect the crime scenes and surrounding areas, solve puzzles in order to find more clues and talk to witnesses to gather more information. Through your interaction with these witnesses, you will have the chance to simply observe their behaviour, or select from a series of questions to direct the conversation as you wish.
If at first you find yourself a little lost, simply take your time to take a closer look at your surroundings and all the objects within them. The more objects you inspect, the more clues you uncover so enjoy the mystery as you start to piece together the clues. If in doubt, there is a to-do list available to point you in the right direction.
Piece together the clues
‘Little grey cells’ are also on hand to help you piece together the clues. For example, ‘was the woman murdered in the shop itself?’ or ‘what’s the relevance of the ABC book?’ This helps thicken the plot and enable progression within the storyline. As you gather clues, you will build a timeline to help you keep track of all the information you have gathered throughout the game.
This game is great at guiding you and pointing you in the right direction. If, like me, you are easily lost and found to be struggling, using the to-do list and visual clues, you’ll soon find your way. In the meantime, you’re bound to be amused by the exaggerated Belgian-French accent of Hercule Poirot and the quirky soundtrack.

If you’re looking for an easy-to-follow murder mystery, Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders is well worth a go. You can explore the scenes to your heart’s content with guidance on hand when you need it. With a strong plot and quirky style, it’s easy to become hooked.
