Agatha Christie: The A.B.C. Murders, the console and PC hit game from Microïds and Artefacts Studios, has arrived in the App Store. Based around one of Agatha Christie’s most popular murder mystery novels, the game puts the player in the shoes of Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. Apple has already highlighted it in the App Store as one of the “New Games We Love.”

The adventure and investigation gameplay requires strategy, skill, wit, and composure in order to solve a series of murders that have everyone stumped. The game is played from Poirot’s point of view, base on his particular style of deductive reasoning using those famous “little grey cells.”

“The harrowing intrigue of the world of Agatha Christie and the ingenuity and brilliance of Detective Poirot translates perfectly into a game built for the mobile platform,” said Eric Nguyen, director of marketing for Microïds. “We believe gamers will be submerged in the mysterious, multi-layered world of the game and be challenged and enthralled by the interactive gameplay which tells a fast-paced story and mystery the player can solve themselves.”

Here are some of the game’s key features:
  • First-person investigation: Players see Agatha Christie’s legendary world through the eyes of Detective Poirot as they examine integral crime scene details, character backgrounds and clues as they work on solving the mystery of the game.
  • Interactive interrogation: Gamers are able to directly interrogate characters in the game as Poirot and a multiple choice question system while armed with the ability to monitor the moods of other characters to guide the strategy in the conversation.
  • Dynamic tools: The game is loaded with dynamic tools Poirot will collect and use in the game to advance the story and solve the mystery.
  • Challenging puzzles: Numerous varied puzzles stand in the way of solving the mystery. Players will encounter puzzles which need to be solved to unlock a secret room or collect a valuable tool and get closer to solving the mystery.
  • Mystery-solving: Once all of the clues have been collected, the player will be tasked with reconstructing the crime and putting together the entire story.
  • “Little grey cells”: Detective Poirot’s signature intelligence will be put to the test in “Little Grey Cells” sequences where players will have to answer questions about the suspects or circumstances using the clues they have collected.
