WHY PLAY THIS MYSTERY CODING GAME?
Essential skills for children are reading, writing, math and now coding. Today everything related to technology requires some type of code. So sparking an interest in coding, especially for girls, at an early age is important. Nancy Drew Codes and Clues sparks this interest through a fun and engaging story. The mystery adventure story also builds critical thinking and reading skills as kids read along with story dialogue. Nancy Drew is not a complicated app. Parents or kids DO NOT need to have any prior knowledge of programming. It’s just full of fun education, music and coding!
UNIQUE AND CREATIVE STORYLINE!
In one of the most creative and educational coding games for kids, as a member of Nancy Drew’s De-TECH-Tive crew, choose disguises, find clues, and program your robot puppy to solve the mystery of a missing project at the Tech Fair.
The fun mystery unfolds in a full narrative story spanning six chapters, as Nancy and friends encounter students who may have taken the missing project. Help Nancy track down suspects and discover what happened to the project before the Tech Fair competition begins!
Throughout the game players develop and use their growing de-TECH-tive skills. Players find clues in hidden object games and apply basic coding concepts to code their puppy and help Nancy out of tight spots at the end of every chapter.
The coding challenges increase as the story progresses and leads to a Super Coder award. Not only is it a great way for girls to get some basic education on coding skills and knowledge, but it’s also a great way to keep them entertained and challenged.
Girls will have fun learning two of the three basic logic structures in the computer programming educational process:
Super De-TECH-Tives will develop critical thinking skills:
• Pattern recognition
• Spatial visualization
• Problem solving
• Algorithmic thinking
• Attention to detail
Kids will follow the story and have fun while narrowing down their list of suspects:

• Find clues within 20+ hidden object games!
• Review clues, evidence, and possible suspects in the player’s Clue Book!
• Select undercover disguises for Nancy, Bess and George!

Ratings and Reviews
This was super duper fun to play and to solve the mystery! I loved coding the robo dog to help solve the mystery too! My only problem is, u need to add more levels! After completing it once it’s not very fun to do it again. Plz plz plz plz add more levels! Make it harder the more mysteries I solve. Overall this is a really fun game! IF u want a game that only lasts an hour
You should play
I just downloaded this game in like one second ago and then on the sixth level this game is so fun you should definitely try and keep your kid distracted when you’re trying to do something for it download this game on a mobile device clap clap clap! And for some people in my cost money but for me it was all free.
I like the app! I’m only a gifted 6 year old and it’s a fun game! If you pay 3.99, you get 5 awesome things! I already got all the charms. Ooh! Charms are really awesome awards! I believe that no first grader could resist using the app... I already paid at least four dollars! I’d give up two hundred dollars just for NancyDrew to pop up downloading on my screen!
