Description

Ripper is an interactive FMV adventure that is played out in the New York of 2040. Brutal killings reminiscent of Jack the Ripper soon get personal and you, crime reporter Jake Quinlan, must solve the mystery.

The game plays much like other Take 2 Interactive works, such as Black Dahlia. Solve puzzles and react quickly in combat settings to survive. There are 4 possible endings, and 3 hours of video footage.

Trivia

Easter Eggs

If at the command prompt you accidentally type RIPER (one P) instead of RIPPER (two P's), instead of going into the game you are greeted with a movie of a rotting apple!

Music

The game features music from the Blue Oyster Cult.

Software issues

Your CD-Rom drive may not be recognized if it is not designated as Drive D.

In addition, it appears that Ripper was not made as a Windows "native" game. While it will run within a DOS window when started in Windows, problems with stuttering sound and lagging graphics are common. The game plays best from the DOS prompt using a Boot Disk.
