1933 will go down in the history books as the year America passed the 21st Amendment to the Constitution. Prohibition is over. To the delight of millions, alcohol can now flow freely across the thirsty land. Two days before the official announcement, bars and clubs across the land are stocking up on quality whiskey. This is the absorbing story of a scruffy but shrewd private investigator who becomes the prime suspect in a mysterious murder case through no fault of his own. Jack now has only 48 hours to slip the noose and find the real offender. The sands of time are rapidly running out for Jack – he must unravel the threads of the mysterious plot in which he finds himself – a race against time!
You, my friend, are the main suspect in a murder case! You’ve been given a chance to prove your innocence, so you better get your Sherlock Holmes act together – fast! In the character of JACK ORLANDO - the down-at-heel detective who’s never at a loss for words – you’ll come across cunning characters, garrulous gangsters, endless enigmas and tense situations throughout this fantastic comic-style adventure. There are 4 entire episodes containing over 200 action-packed scenes in dark alleys, fine saloons and seedy brothels – and the actors are a multitude of tough and sly underworld characters.

Jack Orlando started my history with computer games on PC, I remember it as if it was yesterday. In 1998, probably in January, there was a demo in the most popular computer game magazine, funny how much impact this game had on me as I remember this date. The music in the game is great. The whole soundtrack deserves a prize for the creators. Graphics may be out of date, not suitable for all these new trends because it is not in HD but it catches the eye and allows you to enjoy the beautiful sites. I wholeheartedly recommend the game.
You play Jack Orlando a detective at the centre of a murder investigation who also happens to be the main suspect of this homicide case. You have battle through your wits, through the puzzles and adventures to solve the case before they indict you! The hand-drawn art work and the attention to detail is nothing short of absolutely amazing. Its a perfectly painted canvas which is only complemented by its solid plot, gripping story telling and endearing characters to keep you on your toes. My only gripe with this is the semi-par voice acting though I doubt the studio had the budget to fund decent voice actors. Overall, its an OK game if you're looking for a good murder mystery game.
