Educators and Parents Agree! Nancy Drew Codes and Clues is a Top-Rated Learning Game for Kids!

Kids will learn basic coding, reading and critical thinking skills as they find clues and code their robot puppy in this fun story-based hidden object mystery game!

“The strength is that the coding element is useful within the story instead of being an isolated skill out of context.” - Common Sense Media

“As an instructional technology teacher, Nancy Drew Codes and Clues, gets my kids excited about coding and puts those skills in a fun and familiar context. Who could want more than that?” - Lindsey, Instructional Technology Teacher

“An amazing introduction to teach kids coding in an easy, approachable way.” – The Toy Insider

“Nancy Drew Codes and Clues delivers an entertaining experience with a dash of education making it well worth picking up.” – Apple-N-Apps

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!

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:
• Sequences
• Loops

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:
• Read along with story dialogue!
• 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!
• Investigate a new location in each chapter!
• Play bonus coding levels in Obstacle Course mode!
• Collect in-game charms!
• Listen to the “Codes and Clues” theme song composed by Berklee College of Music contest winner, Ana Tish, performed by Sofia Mazursky and produced by Grammy Award winner Tena Clark.

Good game!

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 need to fix these problems. It’s been here for a year.

I love this game I played this game many times and it never had a prop and then suddenly one day it just boom whenever I went into the game you kick me out. I love Nancy Drew and I love coding and I love the game but when it has a problem I can’t play it. I’m thinking of just deleting it like I did before and it’s been a year since I’ve played it and you still haven’t fixed this bug so please fix this bug so I can play the game PS I am 9 3/4 but I still think that I count as an applicant and somebody who’s read this review and made this review, so please just fix the bug Thank you.
