Story
Set in London in 1899, in Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Mummy the famous detective comes to the aid of Elizabeth Montcalfe. In mourning, and unable to accept Scotland Yard's conclusion that her father, the famous British Archeologist Lord Montcalfe, committed suicide in a recent fire, she is convinced that there is much more to the situation than a suicide and that her father may even yet be alive. Determined to find the truth, whatever it may be, Holmes sets about exploring the expansive Montcalf mansion and its rooms packed full of the Egyptian artifacts and treasures that Lord Montcalfe collected over the years.

Gameplay
The first appearance of the popular Sherlock Holmes game franchise on the Nintendo DS platform, The Mystery of the Mummy is a single player port of game developer Frogwares' PC game of the same name. On accepting the challenge of solving the mystery behind Lord Montcalfe's "disappearance," players set about exploring his Victorian mansion and searching for clues within its many rooms, levels and amongst the Egyptian artifacts that are strewn about. Holmes sees things from a first-person perspective, both horizontally and vertically. This means that players can explore almost everywhere within the game's 3D rendered environment. This is easily done using the DS stylus by tapping and dragging the touchscreen to the spot that you want to go. The stylus also facilitates exploration just as easily through a tap and hold movement that will identify any interactive opportunities within range of the stylus. Once a sleuthing opportunity has been identified the onscreen pointer will change to a magnifying glass, which with an additional tap will allow for an enlarged view.

Clues are automatically added to the onboard inventory panel, located on the DS' top screen and accessed via the 'L' and 'R' buttons. Found items are also added to the inventory and can be used in specific situations and in some cases combined to create a new valuable item. There is space within the inventory panel for notepad functionality that allows players to compose theories and keep track of game events as they like. Finally the game also contains an ongoing series of point and click mathematical, visual and memorization based brainteasers. These serve both to drive the game forward and as side play opportunities away from the main mission. These puzzles vary in difficulty, but with the game's integrated help system players can be assured that they will never be stuck.
