À propos de ce jeu

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.

I have a rather high tolerance threshold when it comes to adventure games, especially old ones. Campiness and minor technical flaws are often part of the package, and I'm okay with that. So I was fine with realizing that the intro gave me a game breaking bug (on Win 8.1 64x) that there are no known solutions for: I watched the intro on youtube, then skipped it when launching the game, and thought little of it. The terrible (not an exaggeration) voice acting didn't deter me and neither did the really bad translation into english. Especially not since the art was decent, the animation fine enough for its age, the smooth jazz score impressively good (way WAY above the call of duty), and the start to the story a promising noir gumshoe's-tale-of-woe, the kind you probably can appreciate if this game peaked your interest.

And then I realized how bad the controls were. And while that too is very often to be expected, these specific controls really go out of their way to make your life miserable. (They're also nowhere explained, read the manual before playing.) It would be much easier to forgive that if the game didn't saddle you with a huge amount of seemingly useless items (stuffed into an inventory system only reachable through F1) that you have to individually pick out every time before you attempt to try them onto yet another tiny, unreachable hotspot for some unfathomable reason. I cannot explain how soulcrashingly clunky the system is, especially when you may have to repeat it 20 times in a row on a single hotspot and still not get a result.

I didn't hate the story, at least so far in. Not that it was good, but it was bad and campy in an interesting way. ;) But the gameplay is just really really bad. The controls and horrible puzzle design finally got the best of me.The term "illogical puzzle" that we throw about so often in adventure games? If you haven't played this game, you have no idea what that term means. Combine that with the insane amount of unusable items, the big maps, the complete lack of clues or guidance and those punishing controls, and you have a real recipe for frustration.

If you are still willing to play this game, do as everyone tells you and play it with a walkthrough. And yes, I realize how odd that sounds, but trust me (and everyone else) that's the only way to play the game without dropping it halfway through like I did. Alternatively you could just watch a Let's Play, and enjoy all the campiness and fascinating flaws of this odd bit of gaming history without suffering any of the frustrations yourself. At least that's what I'm doing. ;)

I was really enjoying this game until I got an "Exception Error Access Violation" error. I've looked around at all the normal adventure game forums, including GOG and it seems that no one has ever patched this. Please, if someone finds a fix for this send me a message. Steam, please patch this if you can.
Do I recommend this? Yes, if it would play properly.
Overall, I wouldn't get this until a patch is made =(

Probablement un bon point & click...

Ce jeu est un jeu de fiction interactive. Personnellement, je ne suis plus très fan de ce genre là...

Cependant, le jeu réserve-t'il peut-être des surprises à ceux qui savent atteindre un certain temps de jeu?
N'étant pas en mesure de répondre à cette question, je me limiterai à indiquer que le jeu n'est jouable qu'en anglais et que l'histoire n'est pas très prenante...

En somme, je suis heureux de n'avoir déboursé QUE 0€50. Ce qui implique que je ne suis pas réelement déçu de mon achat... Selon moi, il ne vaut mieux pas se risquer à le payer plein pot.

Bonne ambiance de polar, intrigue classique mais efficace, une ville vaste à explorer (rare pour un jeu d'aventure). Mais... il y a quelque chose qui gâche tout le jeu : la mort. Le personnage peut mourir et le jeu, évidemment, ne revient pas quelques instants en arrière pour éviter l'erreur fatale. C'est insupportable, surtout lorsque les évènements qui conduisent à la mort sont imprédictibles. Le passage de l'entrepôt du port est tout simplement infâme.

Le jeu permet de ramasser plein plein.... plein d'objets. Mais à peine 10% sont utiles. Et le problème, c'est que si un certain objet n'a pas été ramassé en temps et en heure (exemple : une petite cuillère, une barre à mine), ce sera le game-over inéluctable plus tard. Veillez à faire BEAUCOUP de sauvegardes et apprêtez-vous à y revenir.

Il y a aussi quelques éléments que je trouve plutôt incohérents ou illogiques. Jack a un pistolet, et peut le braquer sur n'importe qui. Mais qu'il s'agisse du gros malabar, de la petite vieille dame, du clochard ou de la prostituée : tous auront la même réaction. Ils ne broncheront pas et se permettront de rire au nez de celui qui leur pointe un pistolet au visage. Normal, quoi.

Dommage, ce jeu était prometteur mais tout cela m'a gâché mon plaisir.

Ne devrait pas être en vente : Jeu uniquement en Allemand, ininteressant, moche et les voix sont horribles. Pourquoi ais-je acheté ce " jeu " ?
