if Murder at Awesome Hall seems boring for you, but you like these murder-mystery solving games, try CLUE(do).BAS or (Inspector) Clewso.BAS they are very similar and of course they are also clones of the Parker/Hasbro board game CLUE(DO)...
Whenever you enter a room in Clue it will automatically change to the menu of persons/weapons/rooms, where you can give your tip by simply clicking on the persons list and then on the weapons list (the room is added autom., it is the room you are currently in). The program menu will even save your false guesses for you, so whenever yo enter a new room, you see the menu with all your false guesses so far.
This makes the game "Clue" quite easy and since it is only for one player, all you have to do is walk around long enough to finally find out the muderer, the weapon and the room (or you cheat the Basic listing, by hitting the Break key and typing GOTO 3xxx so it will list them up)...

Move through the rooms with the cursor keys. Hit "Q" in each room to ask a question (or find out who/what is in the room). You ask the same five questions of everybody, and are occasionally given clues about the murderer, the murder room, and the murder weapon. Hit "N" for a list of what you know about each room/person, hit "L" for a list of people/weapons (and a list of the clues so far), hit "S" to go back to the map (where you can climb to the second floor with -- hmmm! -- is identical to the first), and hit "C" when you think you know whodunnit. Maybe I'm stupid but I have no idea how to find the murder weapon. Maybe I'm lazy but I have no patience for this dull mansion and its assortment of smoking, drug-addicted, and deaf brunettes.
