The world’s greatest detective is faced with one of his greatest challenges! Melvyn Bromsby, a rich tycoon, is about to make an important announcement concerning his future business affairs when he is shot in the heart at his daughter’s own special party.
It is the gamer’s task to explore the murky depths and classy heights of 19th Century Victorian London in the role of the master, Sherlock Holmes. The player in fact gets to take on the roles of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson as they solve puzzles and interact with classic characters such as Inspector Lestrade, the head of the Baker Street Irregulars, Wiggins, and Holmes’ own brilliant brother Mycroft and many others.
There is not just one murder to investigate though - there are five different killings to solve. This entails interviewing more than 40 witnesses and examining some 200 clues. This is played out over 25 hours of gameplay. Each level of the challenging title also has a quiz set by Sherlock Holmes to validate the gamer’s progress in the case.
All of this is played out in rich 3D graphics.
