Нью-Йорк 2072. Смерть в большом городе - Russian spelling
The player guides Jake on his journey in a typical Point & Click-Adventure. Completely controlled by the mouse Jake pics up items, talks with the many characters in each scene in multiple-choice dialogues and solves riddles by following the clues from the dialogues and using the items at the right place. But this isn't as easy as it sounds because the character the player may be looking for, might not be at the location at the time Jake arrives. Each screen features a day and a night setup. So while at the day Jake will find his not-so-friendly boss Edward at the police station, he won't be there at night. Instead a co-worker will sit there and talk to Jake. The player can switch instantaneously between both scenes by pressing a button on the interface.
In addition to the day/night-cycle, later in the game Jake gets access to a machine that allows him to visit a location in the past and even, to a limit degree, interact with the environment and even persons there. The machine, called CIS, collects the data of all security camera in the city and uses the footage to recreate the scenes.
Also the game features cell-shaded graphics, the overall theme is more that of an adult-oriented SciFi-Psychothriller in a Film Noir-style presentation than something for kids.
