    Popular British novelist Agatha Christie is considered by many to be one of the greatest authors of all time. That’s why it’s a shame that her novels haven’t been converted into more successful video game adaptations. With nine different titles available on multiple platforms, you’d think a few of these would be stellar mystery games. While none of the Agatha Christie games can be considered outstanding overall, there are a few titles in the series worth checking out due to their fun puzzles and entertaining storytelling. These are the top 3 Agatha Christie games for PC.

    Peril at End House

    To fans of Agatha Christie’s novels, Peril at End House is a timeless classic. That’s why its novel-to-video game adaptation seems like common sense. Though it isn’t anywhere near perfect, Peril at End House has a great deal of artistic charm due to its graphic novel approach. Though the bulk of this title consists of hidden object gameplay, there are a few minigames that add a spin to the flow of things. If careful observation is your thing, then you’re bound to enjoy this game.

    Though fans of Agatha Christie’s novels may not appreciate the fact that Evil Under the Sun isn’t a true video game interpretation of the classic novel, PC gamers with a hankering for adventure games are likely to enjoy this title. Interesting characters, great dialogue, and fun gameplay all combine to create a worthwhile adventure on the PC. The game’s difficulty is challenging, but it is definitely not frustratingly difficult, and the game’s pacing makes it easy to spend hours at a time playing. No, this isn’t the purest Agatha Christie game in terms of canon, but it is certainly a great adventure game for fans of the genre to sink their teeth into.

    And Then There Were None

    And Then There Were None  

    And Then There Were None is a point-and-click adventure game that does a much better job of retelling the original source material’s story as opposed to Evil Under the Sun. Good pacing, fun puzzles, and a clever plot make this a title that Agatha Christie fans should be able to enjoy. Even adventure game fans who have never read any of the famous author’s work are likely to get a kick out of this one.
