Added DiffLines:

* HarderThanHard: The Detective difficulty setting in the SNES/Genesis video game adaptations. In lesser difficulties, when you make a suggestion, it tells you a fact about the person, weapon, or room you guessed (e.g. if you guess "Mrs. Peacock with the knife in the Ballroom", you'll get something like "The knife was in the Library"). In Detective difficulty, it just basically tells you that your guess was wrong (e.g. that same guess would get you something like "Mrs. Peacock was NOT in the Ballroom"). Expect to tear your hair out trying to solve the murder with hints like that.

Added DiffLines:

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Most of the chapters revolved around a murder or theft, but a few would present the reader with a non-criminal mystery--for example, the guests play a game or have a contest, and you have to figure out who won.
