Keaton was right, in my view. In adventuring, nothing compares with text, when it's well done. And this is the best.
Commodore 64Zzap! (Jan, 1986)
This is a tremendous game, and I seriously warn you not to go anywhere near it unless you want to spend Christmas at the keyboard.
Suspect is probably the perfect link between the short & easy Witness and the complicated & hard Deadline. It even makes the whole 'not much time' scenario more plausible than the other two. And much more than most games of the genre, it succeeds in creating a believable small world which seems to work by its own rules and doesn't just passively react to the actions of the player. Prepare yourself for an entertaining and thrilling ride!

Slight twist to the story here, as you can probably imagine from the title. You are framed for a murder you did not commit, and you only have a short time to prove your innocence. Not only that, but you must also discover proof of who did do it. An interesting angle on the usual detective story, and it works well.

The puzzles are generally well done, but it suffers from a lack of vividness, and a lack of feeling that you're really there. This problem afflicted some of Infocom's earlier efforts, and their early mysteries in particular.
