Description

In this game, the player takes control of Jack Orlando, a once famous private investigator, who started to drink too much, ruining his career. One night, while he stumbles from the bar to his home, he accidentally gets involved in a murder case. He's knocked unconscious and arrested by the police the other day. As the inspector is his friend, he's given 48 hours to solve the case...

Jack Orlando: A Cinematic Adventure is a classical graphical adventure game, similar to those created by LucasArts and Sierra. In this point-and-click adventure the player moves the protagonist figure through a (mostly hand-painted) world, talking to many other persons and advancing in the storyline by solving many different puzzles.

The game's graphics consist of hand-painted backdrops with cartoon-like character models. All of the dialogue is played as voice-over as well as displayed as text and uses Dolby Surround techniques. The music was composed by Harold Faltermeyer.
