Computer Games (Sep, 1983)
This is an extraordinary all-text program. The case is difficult, the plot logical, the writing witty. Unlike a novel, there's more than one ending. You might solve the case, but then again you might get killed by a suspect who thinks you're on to him... Deadline is a breakthrough game.
In all, I thoroughly recommend the adventure, despite my dislike of the solution. After all, I have no say in who murdered who, it's merely my job to find out "who done it." Much of my recommendation lies on the excellent command parser, as well as my love for mysteries. This made me feel like a detective, frustration and all. I'm waiting for the next one.
