    Real Crimes: Jack the Ripper

    In this straight HOG, you are trying to solve the mystery of Jack the Ripper. It is not a gruesome game with blood and disturbing imagery, it is rather a detective game. Finding fingerprints on each screen will give you extra time (should you be playing the timed mode - I was playing relaxed Wink), and finding silver badges (such as the one pictured by your Hints button) will get you extra hints. You start off with only 3 hints, but items aren't that hard to find in the first scene.

    There are 5 fingerprints and one hint "badge" to find on each scene.

    On thing you DON'T have to worry about on this game is tiny items! Snicker Some are so impossibly big that you don't even notice them, somehow. Still, items are well-hidden for the most part, and not "junk-piley".

    There are some nice mini-puzzles, and unlike many HOGs, highly relevant to the story. Puzzles ARE skippable.

    One thing to note: You can only save a game at the beginning of a scene, or you will lose any progress you make :(

    This game reminds me of the early Mystery Case Files games. If you like straight HOGs, this definitely a good one to try.
