Murder in Venice

Cobra Software, 1990

Travel to Venice to solve a baffling murder in this unusual mystery adventure. Fans of detective games will really enjoy the wide range of evidence gathering techniques available, like the ability to photograph characters and locations, then to show these photos to witnesses so you may gauge their reactions. There are many nifty gadgets to use and lots of character interaction. However, because this is a "real-time" game, you have limited time to gather clues and you will frequently find yourself waiting for other characters to show up or for events to happen. Still, this is a solid graphic adventure and certainly worth trying.
