Dos Jack the Ripper DOS front cover

5.0 /5
Jack the Ripper is arguably the ultimate detective game.

Back in 19th Century England, one man was able to kill and kill again without ever been caught. That man was Jack the Ripper. Now, the player is a Scotland Yard detective on the trail of this famous killer. He must converse with suspects, highlighting any important information that could be valuable to his case. Then, when he thinks he has enough evidence, the player pieces the clues together to finally catch the infamous killer. Play Jack the Ripper online!

Gameplay consists of highlighting text obtained by interrogation or search to record them as clues (or “premises” in the game’s lingo) in your notebook. Then you must combine these premises logically to derive the solution. This novel method makes for a mostly static and “dry” game consisting of reams of text, but patient Sherlock Holmes fans who cherish abstract deduction will find this an ideal game to follow in Holme’s footsteps.
