Acerca de este juego

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.

Modo "abuelo cebolleta" activado: Puef fi, una aventura como laf de antef. ¡Fi efque ya no hacen aventuras como laf de antaño!
Tras apagar el modo "abuelo cebolleta", lo que parecía una aventura gráfica de los 90 se viene abajo debido al sosainas del protagonista. Más seco que la mojama. La historia no está "muy pallá", pero junto con el desarrollo de los puzzles es más o menos correcto todo.
Al principio podemos elegir modo normal o fácil. Yo, que me flipo a la primera de cambio elijo el normal y me pongo a jugar pero, y aquí viene la mega-cagada del juego, cerca del final hay un fallo de programación donde el juego no te permite avanzar. Un supuesto personaje debería ofrecerte un objeto y ya puedes vender tu alma al diablo o llevar calcetines con chanclas, que no hay manera de avanzar. Total, que para terminar toca empezar de nuevo en modo fácil y acabarlo. Esto de vender juegos con fallos de este tipo es torturable, pero como de momento es ilegal, me contento con recomendaros que no hagáis como yo y no gastéis un céntimo en él.

¿Pero no vale la pena ni para jugar en modo fácil? Valeee, puedes comprarlo y jugar en modo fácil. Unas líneas más arriba estaba lleno de odio.
¿Me pondré melancólico recordando los 90 y sus aventuras gráficas? No creo. La estética debería ayudar, pero el protagonista tiene menos carisma que un malo-sparring del "Double Dragon".
¿Es muy largo? En modo fácil, no mucho (1 tarde, quizá). En modo normal, gracias al fallo del juego, es infinito.

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. ;)

The top review is correct in my opinion. I got this game in a bundle, unfortunately. As a gamer that owns a few point and click games, I can honestly say this is the worst one in my library.

CONS:
The controls and gameplay mechanics are clunky and can be frustrating at times.
Bad voice acting.
Story that goes all over the place.
If you don't do certain things in the beginning, you will have to restart to an earlier time in the game.
Unless you do everything right from the beginning, you will need a strategy guide.
Not fun

PROS:
The music was good..

3/10
