DescriptionCorruption is one of Magnetic Scrolls' interactive fiction games. The player takes control of a stockbroker on the fast track to riches. Suddenly, there are attempts on his life, with the words 'insider dealings' floating around. The hero is framed for a crime he didn't commit, and must prove his innocence before it is too late.
The game is a text adventure with graphics; the player inputs verb commands to interact with the environment and advance the story. The gameplay focuses on realistic investigation and information-gathering rather than puzzle-solving.

ExtrasThe game comes with a cassette tape on which is a vital conversation pertaining to the game (it also had a coupon to send in, if you were not fortunate enough to own a cassette player).
The game also had a 'casino chip' that never showed up in your inventory. It was used as part of the copy protection.
ManualSticking with the 'real-world' theme, the manual is in the form of Filofax pages, complete with ring binder holes for you to put into your actual Filofax.
