Tomahawk, 1991

Fascination was released at the same time as the wildly popular Monkey Island and that might be the reason why Fascination received little notoriety. While this unusual game never got the acclaim it deserved, it has certainly earned an honorable mention here. In this somewhat erotic tale you play a woman who accidentally gets hold of a secret drug sample invented by a businessman who was assassinated. Now, it is your task to find and deliver the drug sample to the right person. The game has some irrelevant adult scenes, which has nothing to do with the story. The worst thing is that the player must save the game often because if you miss something in the previous scene then all you have to do is to load a saved game or restart the game. The puzzles are reasonably difficult and the sound and graphics quite well done for the time.
