About the Game

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.

Jazz Music + Noir Detective = A swell time ! I love this game it has a great story line thats simular to a D I C K 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 ! I would really only Recomend this game to someone who likes Point and Click adventures otherwise you probably wont enjoy it. 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.

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

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.

The game is just too hard and complicated ,and boring the most. All the carecters are stif,boring and like dead no enjoyment out of than when you talk too then ,no humor or similarly .
I like point and click adventures like Siberia ,The Longest Journey ,Black Mirror etc ... All these games are really fun and enjoyable to play even whit puzzles.
But this game is just not fun,just too hard to enoy the gameplay !!!

So far I find this game enjoyable. Will try to finish it, it's a point and click game where you have to prove that you're not a murderer. It's pretty fun too.
But if you're not a fan of classic games I don't recommend it. But if you are, pick this up! It's really good.

I enjoyed playing this game, traversing the many scenes and talking to the many and varied characters. There are over 20 different interactive characters. The basis of the story was also great, however, in my opinion the game could have had a better flow. It is entertaining to go through the game for the first time, but few players will probably be tempted to hit these mean streets more than once.
