Mrs. Hudson, the landlady of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, has gone out on a trip about the city, shopping and visiting.  Sherlock has dispatched members of the Baker Street Irregulars to keep tabs on her, and they continually send back cryptic clues about her trip.  Can YOU figure out where she walked, what she bought and who she visited?

Mrs. Hudson is a game of logic and deduction. It provides 10,000 puzzles in each of four sizes and two types (the above is a small size 4 puzzle in its solved state). The goal of each puzzle is to locate all of the images and figure out the path taken by Mrs. Hudson. One image is located on each "city block," and her path winds through the streets and in and out of the city blocks. She never crosses her own path, she never visits a block more than once (and sometimes not at all), and she always travels in an over-all clockwise direction. Puzzle sizes are from 3x3 up to 6x6 images. You're provided with sufficient clues (presented graphically) to determine everything, using clear, cold, precise logic.

The demo is fully functional, but has a limited number of puzzles.

Tutorials

If you're having trouble getting Mrs. Hudson figured out, the following pages will help you to learn how to make some of the necessary deductions.

EXAMPLE #1: Basic path deductions.
EXAMPLE #2: Never a path.
EXAMPLE #3: Disconnected paths.


Additional image sets

Once downloaded, install these into the IMAGES folder of your MH folder. For example, if you installed Mrs. Hudson in the default location of C:\EKS\MH, then you would install these image sets in C:\EKS\MH. The files in this section are EXE files, so once they're downloaded, just run them like any other program and they will unZIP themselves to whatever folder you specify (a dialog will prompt you for your preferred folder). The files will actually get placed in the IMAGES sub-folder, because that sub-path is included in the ZIP file, but you shouldn't need to worry about that.

When ordering on-line, you choose between two payment processors.

We prefer Paypal. You don't have to have a Paypal account to use it. When you get to the Paypal site, just click on the "If you don't have a PayPal account?" link and they'll submit the charge to the credit card of your choice.

But some folks may prefer to use SWREG. We aim to please!

To order by mail or phone, see Contact us.

SWREG is currently having problems with their product set-up process. As a result, I am not currently able to offer SWREG as a payment processing option for Mrs. Hudson. As soon as they fix their problem, I'll add SWREG as an option on this page. Meanwhile, if you don't wish to use Paypal to process your credit card, please call 1-541-928-5259 and I can manually process your card myself. I can then email the download link (or send the CD) to you.

The demo and licensed versions are identical, except that the demo version has limited numbers of puzzles, and the licensed version may have additional support files (like extra image sets). So, if the demo version works for you, the licensed version will, too. If the demo version doesn't work for you, neither will the licensed version.

Generally, you don't need to un-install a demo version before installing the licensed version. The licensed version will install right over the top of the demo version and use all of the settings you've already created with the demo version.

NOTE: You can not upgrade your licensed version by installing a newer demo version over the top of the licensed version. You would just end up with a demo version.
