Who murdered Marilyn Spencer?
Who murdered Marilyn Spencer? is a free online murder mystery produced by the BBC and with an introduction by Inspector Morse writer, Colin Dexter.
The game consists of short video clips of all the suspects, and a number of clues. (I struggled a bit to see some of the videos, but there are links to transcripts of everything.) And I have to say that the final conclusion could be a bit more theatrical - but I always liked those Poirot-style denouments at the end of a good Agatha Christie.
Stickman murder mysteries
Stickman murder mysteries are free point-and-click mystery puzzles using cartoony graphics and set in the city of Stickville. There are (as I write) five mysteries - the first one took me about fifteen minutes to work my way through.
In the mysteries you get to travel to different locations - such as visit the morgue and check out the murder victims. There are also sound effects, and a few jokes.Click here to play Stickman murder mysteries.
