The between-room transitions as you wander around the house are s-l-o-w, though, so make sure youíve gotten everything in a room before you leave it. And the graphics are really, really jumpy at first when you enter a room. But if you spin around the room once, it seems that the game caches the graphics and it runs at a decent speed. A flaw, but not an irrecoverable one. The FMVís with the actors are passable, if a bit campy, but they do a decent job of setting the mood of the murder mystery.
The sound effects in the puzzle mode are very basic, with clicks when pieces go together and a little fanfare when you complete a section. Itís a puzzle game, though, so thereís no real need for elaborate sound effects. The music is nonexistent at times, and not memorable at the other times.
