Assume the identity of teenage super-sleuth Nancy Drew as she unravels the mysterious happenings inside a castle full of riddles and rumors while sidestepping snowy danger on the hunt for a secret that someone else is desperate to discover first.
Nancy's ski vacation in an old castle is interrupted by a fierce blizzard. Snowbound inside the castle, Nancy learns of an elaborate plot devised by Marie Antoinette 200 years ago to hide a royal treasure. As always when Nancy is around, there is much more to the story than first appears. Nancy begins to uncover the rich history of the lodge, as well as some mysterious events, all leading to the hidden treasure. Eccentric Ezra Wickford built the quirky castle, and its current owner is promoting it as a ski resort. Years ago, Wickford had one of the towers of the resort shipped intact from an ancient castle in France. It was believed to be the last hiding place of Marie Antoinette. Now the blizzard has locked everyone inside the castle -- trapped just like Marie was hundreds of years earlier. Hopefully, Nancy will be able to keep her head and solve the mystery.

The story goes that you, as Nancy Drew, are snowed in at a ski resort in Wisconsin with an interesting history. In this game you learn about the French Revolution and Marie Antoinette.
"So, what's the mystery?" you ask. I'm getting to that.
There is a tower shipped over from France and was put back together on Wickford Castle, the ski resort you are staying at. The library at Wickford has been vandalized, and it takes a lot more than barging through the front door to investigate. Later, you hear about Marie Antoinette having a crown worth millions and somehow you figure that the library and treasure are connected. Your job is to find out the story behind the treasure and library.
This game took me about four days to beat. It's quite challenging in parts, like the ski lift, but you can get through it. It's also a little frightening, like the banging noises, but not too frightening that you never want to play it again, like the Final Scene. All in all, Treasure in the Royal Tower is a great game and everyone should buy it.
Also, I was glad that they tried to show Marie Antionette as being a kind and well-meaning but immature young queen instead of a cruel, heartless tyrant as most people portray her.
A couple minor flaws. First, the box says 20+ hours of game play, but it was really only about half that or less. Second, this castle/hotel was just too big! It took me forever to find whatever room I was looking for, which was so annoying when I wanted to get someplace FAST. And, finally, this game can get really stressful--maybe even be too stressful for 10-year-olds unless they're playing with someone else.
Still, all in all, this was a really great game--not quite as spooky as Treasure in a Haunted Mansion, but definately as much fun!
Like all of the Nancy Drew games- you can play on a junior or senior level, depending on your skill and experience level. There are built in hints (from your friends ned, bess and george) and a second chance option if you mess up.
Best of all, there is an educational lesson built in as you learn about marie antoinette and the French revolution.
The game itself is quite straightforward- the plot moves along with hints from the suspects. Some of the puzzles are difficult to solve, but there is always hints that are just a phone call away.
I am 10 years old and I have played all the games except for the Haunted Carousel. Treasure in the Royal Tower was my first game. I liked all of them, but this one is my favorite.
Nancy is in a baffling mystery now. She is looking for a treasure, belonging to queen Marie Antoinnete. But a culprit is trying to as well, And he/she will do dangerous traps for Nancy to stop.
So with Professor Hodgekiss and a few other suspects to choose from , Nancy Drew has a mind baffling case to solve. But remember,NEVER TRY AND GUESS WHO.the captor is a dangerous person, dangerous enough to lock Nancy out in the snow. Keep a notebook and win this mind-puzzling case.

This ND is OK. The puzzles are fairly simplistic (but no sliders which I personally detest). There is one part that definitely qualifies as a pixel hunt (another pet peeve of mine)Published on March 4 2013 by frank hinz
