Text adventure based on Arthur Conan Doyle's famous character. You play as Sherlock and must solve a mystery using interrogation and investigation in order to catch your suspect.

The game features some real-time elements, seldom found in adventures, such as NPCs with agendas (used over a decade later in Westwood's Blade Runner). The clock keeps on ticking and you'll lose if time runs out.
