noble girl about town

I was extremely excited for this game, being as I'm a fan of both Sherlock Holmes and adventure games. Honestly, though, I couldn't get past the first room. The graphics have been dulled down so far from the original (which is a computer game) that it's grainy and hard to actually tell what you're looking at. Controlling with the stylus is clunky, and the room often moves so quickly when you accidentally press in the wrong place that I felt dizzy with Holmes looking up, down, and around when I wanted to go forward. It's impossible to tell what you can and cannot interact with, and even what things are -- I think, again, because of the resolution issues -- and the few times I zoomed all the way in on an area, or found something I could manipulate, it was out of complete luck. This game looks good on paper and previews but is literally unplayable. Don't buy it, you'll just end up disappointed.
