Dedicated fans of Baker Street’s famous sleuth may already have experienced Mr Holmes in virtual form on the PC, where there are five games already chronicling his cases. This DS title is based on the first and it is designed, one imagines, to draw in newplayers from Nintendo’s legions of casual followers. Using the stylus to point and poke, gamers have to get to the bottom of the mysterious disappearance of a famed Egyptologist, all the while exploring his echoing mansion and solving puzzles along the way. Fun, if limited.
