App Description


Scandal shakes London's most exclusive men's club as Colonel Philip Sylvester lies murdered in the reading room. Can you uncover the murderer, the motive and the method? Is anyone among the respected but anti-social members a likely suspect? Can you rely upon Sherlock Holmes or his older (and some say "more accomplished") brother Mycroft for assistance?

YOU are the detective in this intriguing first "gamebook" of the SHERLOCK HOLMES SOLO MYSTERIES (TM) series. This gamebook also includes a second, complete mystery adventure, IRISH STAR. Two complete Holmes mystery adventures in one app!

What is a gamebook, you ask? A gamebook is unlike a regular book. In a regular book, you read one chapter after another, from 1 to 2 to 3. In a gamebook, at the end of chapter 1, you have to make a decision (or roll the dice, or both); and your decision and the results of your actions determine what chapter you read on from there. In this way, a gamebook does not present you with just one fixed storyline, but splits into dozens and sometimes hundreds of different outcomes. YOU determine how the story goes on. And no two plays are the same.
