Crime City is a classical point-and-click adventure. You play Mr. White, a poor chap who writes detective stories but wants nothing more than to be a real private investigator. It's a pretty classical story: one day, he can't really write a thing, but then, a mysterious blonde stands before his door, telling him his Father, Henry White, was arrested for murder. It's up to you to prove the police wrong.

A difference to the classical adventure exists: you need money to travel, get information or training. To get money, you can trade at the stock market. What's also different is that the time of the day really matters and that the protagonist becomes sleepy after staying up too long.

In-game advertisement

The in-game BBS features three adverts for upcoming Impressions games:

Discovery - In the Footsteps of Columbus
In this tribute to the Great Explorer, the gameplay involves exploring, trading, fighting and creating settlements- all on a global scale. With each decision you face many options. Choose well, and you could be the one to discover El Dorado.

This game, more or less a follow-up to Merchant Colony, was released by Impressions in 1992.

Samurai - The Way of the Warrior,
Soon to be released by Impressions, is one of the largest games of its type, due to its innovative computer generated map. Your samurai armies must vanquish all enemies and seize their lands, whilst keeping their homes safe and their people content. A challenge for the most hardened adventurer.

Released by Impressions in 1992 (in the US as Conquest of Japan). The "innovative computer generated map" turned out to be crude randomized battlefields of manageable size.

Coming Soon from Interactive FantasyFiction......
The Hand of St. James
A game of murder, intrigue and adventure, in which nobody can be trusted in the abbey, a monk is dead and the sacred relic has been stolen. It's up to you to find out who is responsible.
Only on I.F...... Soon.

Or rather not. This game is shrouded in mystery itself, with no clear indication that it was ever released.
