Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: Case of the Serrated Scalpel

Mythos Software, 1992

One of the better Sherlock Holmes games to be found. In this game you are called to investigate the murder of a young actress by someone using the same weapon as the mysterious Ripper... or is this the work of the Ripper himself?

The Lost Files features an excellent plot, quality graphics and superb writing, and has for background turn-of-the-century London. While the puzzles could be more interesting, the colorful characters and engaging story more than make up for this shortcoming. So grab your pipe and cap and join the legendary Sherlock Holmes along with his companion, Dr. Watson in solving the Case of the Serrated Scalpel.
