The computer versions of the classic board game stay very true to the original. In a way it's a shame because it fails to make use of the possibilities the micros offer. However it's still bound to appeal to the many lovers of the game.

The aim is to discover who murdered Dr Black, what the murder weapon was, and where the evil deed was carried out. This is done by moving around the mansion in which the game takes place, asking the other players if they have particular cards relating to people, weapons or places. They must reveal these cards if they have them. By a process of elimination you should be able to track down the three pieces of information and van the game.

Up to six players can take part, or you can compete against computer players. The fact that the game is on computer means more can be made of graphics and sound, and it eliminates the need for those forms where you tick off the eliminated objects, people and places.
