Back of Jewel Case - DOS - Sierra Originals (Germany):


    Ein Abenteuer, das Sie mitreißt und direkt den Nerv einer Poilzeiermittlungs-Simulation trifft
    Eine Welle des Verbrechens überzieht Ihre Stadt. Die erste Leiche wurde um 3 Uhr morgens gefunden, der unbekleidete Torso verstümmelt; wenig später wird ein weiterer Toter entdeckt... Ihr Partner! Ein wahnsinniger Killer verbreitet Panik und Sie müssen ihn entlarven. Ob am Ort des Verbrechens oder sogar im städtischen Leichenschauhaus, Sie sind immer auf der Suche nach Spuren und Hinweisen. Lassen Sie bei Ihrer Untersuchung Vorsicht walten, denn schon ein einziger taktischer Fehler und Sie könnten leicht das nächste Opfer sein.

    Entworfen vom früheren Polizei-Chef von Los Angeles, Daryl Gates, bietet das Szenario ein authentisches Porträt moderner Polizeiarbeit.
    Die Suche nach handfesten Beweisen erhält durch hochauflösende Fotos, gefilmte Schauspieler, 16-Bit-Soundeffekte und Musik einen besonders realistischen Aspekt.

Back of Box - DOS/Windows (Canada/US):
    Someone's on a killing spree, and it's up to you to solve a string of seemingly random murders. Some clues may bring you closer to the killer. Some lead down blind alleys. You must find the killer before he strikes again. Play it by the book and you might just stay alive. Make a mistake and you could be the next victim.

    The first body was found in an alley at 3 a.m., the naked torso tortured and mutilated. Just another body in another alley on another morning in the City of Angels...but this one is more than a statistic to you. He's your best friend.
