-

Rated 3.5 out of 4 by USA TODAY! "Let's hope more Nancy Drew mobile mysteries are on the way, as they deliver a fun take on the teen detective story by folding in interactive and multimedia elements." - Marc Saltzman

“Her Interactive focuses on high quality games with humor, stories, and a modern interpretation of Nancy Drew as a character. Overall, I’d say the game book is very well done and is worthy of being labeled a pioneering work.” – Dean Takahashi, VentureBeat

“Shadow Ranch...appears to be the first app that blends a robust young adult book with interactive elements, as well as a variety of story-related mini games.” – Winda Benedetti, MSNBC

Rated a perfect 5 stars * by Common Sense Media. "It's all brilliantly put together; a true blending of book and game."

Bring the Nancy Drew experience to life in this first installment of the story-based gamebook series for your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. As you navigate the mysterious events at Shadow Ranch, you’ll soon find yourself in a world of long lost treasure, phantom horses, rough and tumble cowboys and fearsome creatures of the wild desert. Shadow Ranch is an interactive adventure where you choose your own path and solve mysteries and puzzles both big and small. As you navigate the cryptic events at Shadow Ranch, it’s up to you to solve the case before its owners are forced to ride off into the sunset.

In Shadow Ranch, Nancy is off to Arizona and the rustic homestead run by Bess and George’s Aunt and Uncle. But when she arrives, she quickly discovers that Shadow Ranch hides a darker past. Legend has it that notorious outlaw Dirk Valentine's faithful ghost horse has been haunting Shadow Ranch, forever cursing all those unlucky enough to witness its eerie presence. A recent rash of ghost sightings and a series of accidents have been driving customers away from Shadow Ranch in droves. With business at a standstill, it's only a matter of time before the ranch closes its doors for good. As Nancy, George and Bess piece together the mysterious events at Shadow Ranch, they have one shot to discover the secret of Dirk Valentine's ghost before it's too late. Play the Story!™

Features:

•Choose your own path and explore each mystery the way you want

•Solve puzzles and word scrambles to earn collectibles and unlock mini-mysteries

•Find all the clues in fun hidden object games

•Navigate challenging mazes and play horse racing games

•Track your progress and revisit past cases

“Nancy Drew Mobile Mysteries: Shadow Ranch represents a new type of app that could be a big part of the future of leisure books for kids. Shadow Ranch is not quite like other interactive books out today, as it is more like a hybrid between a book and a full-fledged video game.” – Adam Balkin, NY1

“The game is a hybrid storybook and adventure game, incorporating plain text with mini games, some of which flow directly and logically from the story and others which seek to relieve the boredom younger users might feel when confronted with prose.” – Christina Nutt, Gamasutra

“Using text inspired by the original books, the app creates an interactive story for readers. You don't have to imagine you're on the case with Nancy Drew, now you can be part of it as well.” – Michelle Castillo, TIME

5/5 stars

Absolutly amazing!

:
I came in to this game very skeptical. I am a die hard ND and HeR interactive fan, but I was unsure if the book based game play would work and boy was I wrong! It was a great game and It has an extremely high replay value. This is a must have app!

5/5 stars

Shadow Ranch

:
I have played all the Nancy Drew PC Games and I was very excited to see a game for the iPad. I am not a young girl but was always challenged by Her. To say I was disappointed is an understatement! It surely is not worth 9.99. I hope they put more thought into the next game. It might be a good idea to look at Salem Witch. it was very well done. I gave this one star. If you are under 12 you might like it.

5/5 stars

mom with 10 year old daughter

:
My daughter and I have probably played ten of the Nancy Drew PC games, and we are big fans of the graphics, gameplay, characters, and writing. They are smart, (you always end up learning something new), and require some thinking to solve. Our all-time favorite is Danger on Deception Island.

Shadow Ranch is different than the Nancy Drew PC games, but my daughter still likes it. She's not a very enthusiastic reader, but she enjoyed the story and was motivated to read the text in order to get to the puzzles. The puzzles were varied and appropriate for her age. Based on our experience, Shadow Ranch may be more appealing to kids than to adults, (compared to the PC games which I think appeal to everyone of any age).
