Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake is the seventh game in the Nancy Drew adventure series. It is based on Nancy Drew Ghost Stories: Ghost Dogs of Whispering Oaks, and Nancy Drew Digest #167: Mystery by Moonlight. This game is in dedication of Mildred Wirt Benson, the author of the original Nancy Drew series.


Hunt for clues on the trail of a pack of phantom hounds!

You, as Nancy Drew, must pick up the cold trail left by a notorious gangster who once lived in the lakeside cabin recently purchased by your friend, Sally McDonald. The cabin was formerly owned by Mickey Malone, a Prohibition-era gangster, on Moon Lake, Pennsylvania. However, Sally soon becomes very frightened and asks you for help. When you arrive, a tree falls and blocks you in, and Sally is nowhere to be found. Sally soon calls you and tells you why she left - Malone's dogs have apparently returned as ghost dogs, and they viciously attack the cabin each night! Are the ghostly legends true, or is there a flesh and blood answer to the dogs' haunting howls? Decipher cryptic puzzles, search through shadowy wood, creepy old houses, interview suspicious characters, and dodge danger to sniff out the truth behind local legends to solve the mystery.

  • Explore a cemetery and speakeasy
  • Take photos of birds and collect bugs
  • Find your way out of the maze in the forest
