Vienna (pts021/22.11.2006/12:15) - In May 1897, industrial magnate and construction tycoon Sir Melvyn Bromsby suddenly collapses at one of his receptions, a blood-red spot showing beneath his heart. Before the incident, there were rumours that he was going to use the reception to announce major revelations regarding his business empire. Two of the guests carry the prominent names Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson and start their work on the case right away. Why was Bromsby so anxious just before his speech? Is the magnate's young and charming daughter Lavinia just as innocent as she seems to be? Who is the murderer - and what is he trying to hide with this action?

These are the questions that come across to all those who try to follow in the footsteps of the first of all detectives, the snooper par excellence, the master of deductive investigation. The Austrian games development company Xendex http://www.xendex.com has ingeniously transformed the classic PC game for Mobile Game freaks. Within the wink of an eye, the player finds himself in 19th century London. Only using the poor devices Sherlock Holmes himself had back then, but taking advantage of his sharp wit and the help of Dr. Watson, it is possible to solve the case. Nevertheless, users should expect many thrilling hours and should concentrate on asking the right questions.

"Already when we were kids, we literally wolfed down the books about the British master detective", states Xendex 's Georg Holzer (Games Producer). "For this reason, it was a thrilling and especially tempting challenge for the Xendex team to develop the Mobile Game following the dtp/ ANACONDA top adventure game 'Sherlock Holmes - The Secret of the Silver Earring'. Being committed fans of mystery stories ourselves, we set our main goal at preserving the original's fun, thrill and challenging riddles".
