Sobre o jogo

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. You’ll have to keep your eyes wide open for clues, no matter where you are... only by putting two and two together will you reach your objective.

The Director's Cut Version of the game offers six new scenes, normal and easy game mode as well as a lot of additional puzzles.

Jogo clássico, sobre uma era clássica.

Jack Orlando é um detetive particular que fez fama durante a era da proibição americana (quando era proibida a venda de álcool - tempos os quais Al Capone agiu). Agora a proibição acabou e igualmente foi-se ralo abaixo os anos dourados de Jack Orlando, que agora passa a vida bebendo.

Contudo o detetive, após uma noite de bebedeira, presencia um assassinato. A única testeminha e o único suspeito é justamente ele. Em nome dos velhos tempos Jack Orlando tem 48 horas para provar sua inocência, contudo, à medida que vai se aprofundando em suas investigações ele vê funcionar uma grande teia de corrupção.

Uma história digna de um filme noir, uma trilha-sonora de igual competência, um humor sarcástico bastante incisivo e um final clichê-hollywoodiano este jogo faz juz ao seu subtítulo: Uma Aventura Cinemática. Possui uma arte-gráfica que jamais ficará ultrapassada, pois é completamente desenhado. Os quebra-cabeças realmente botam a gente para pensar e é repleto de "ruas sem saídas" (o que demanda do jogador salvar o jogo infinitas vezes), contudo, para aqueles que como eu são jogadores casuais, o jogo possui também uma versão mais fácil.

Só para listar algumas coisas ligeiramente ruins:
Pude notar uma falha de dublagem,
Sendo um adventure point-and-click, demanda bastante da leitura ele carece legendas em mais línguas (tem apenas inglês e alemão),
Não tem configuração de vídeo em wide-screen, apenas full-screen,
E, como disse antes, o final parece um final dum típico filme holliwoodiano (o que na verdade não chega a ser ruim, pois contribui para o estilo cinemático do jogo).

Fora essas coisas, o jogo é excepcional.

Hm, I love classic point and click adventure games but after about 15 minutes of this one I'm feeling quite nauseated by it.

The controls are fiddly and annoying and you often have to do things several times before they register and you can progress. However I've played a good many of these kinds of games and I've dealt with worse for the sake of a fantastic storyline, so that in itself is not a deal-breaker for me.

The voice acting is terrible, there is no flow to dialogue and it sounds like each line was recorded separately with actors who've never seen the script and who do not understand the syntax of English.

The lead character is fundamentally oboxious and unpleasant. That's probably the point, and maybe they are planning on doing some amazing character building and turning it around, we shall see.

My real problem with it so far is the rampant sexism. I know they're trying to invoke the spirit of the 1930s but they're really massively overdoing it on the gender stereotypes. I'm literally on the 2nd scene of the game and have heard at least four negative statements about women. As if the world of gaming really needed any more kitchen jokes! I'd understand an undertone of it to set the scene of the game, but at the moment it just feels like being bashed over the head with the blunt, narrow-minded opinions of someone who doesn't usually get an outlet for them. Have a little subtlety and empathy for your burgeoning female fan-base before you alienate them entirely.

I plan on finishing the game and altering this review accordingly once completed, but as it stands at present I'm proceeding with extreme caution and not particularly high hopes that I'm not totally wasting my time.

Jazz Music + Noir Detective = A swell time ! I love this game it has a great story line thats similar to a ♥♥♥♥ Tracey film or a Hardy boys book. ( Originaly released in 1998 ). The game is truely a classic point and click game but sometimes the controls are slow but thats just because the game is old so i can appreciate that aspect. The game is also tough and challanging when finding out what to do next, which can be annoying aswell. Heres a link if you ever get stuck. http://www.gameboomers.com/wtcheats/pcJj/JackOrl.htm ! But going off all that all and all i believe this is a great game and i hope you agree to. so have fun and check out the Masterpiece that is Jack Orlando.

I like point&clicks, even older ones but there's a reason why this one isn't as famous as others are.

The art is about the only thing that's positive about this game. The story is incoherent, the controls and the navigation through the city are clunky and the voice acting is mechanic at best. It also doesn't help that there's a lot of scenery in the game that isn't used at all and the random catacombs and libraries were just bizarre in a 1930s noir setting.

Get it in a bundle and play it with a guide if you really want to, you'll just end up dead or with a broken save otherwise.

Nothing makes sense. Hardly gives you any clue of what to do next, even in easy mode. Rely on a walkthrough. Better yet, don't bother getting it...
