Description from the packaging.
It's like an adventure. Only it's a mystery. So it's like a movie. But with scrolling graphics. And animation. And each time you play, the mystery is different. According to which detective you pick. According to how you put your questions, how you look for clues, and how you make accusations, and how you think. Most of all, you've got to think. And think fast. Because if the Zinderneuf touches down at Lakehurst before you've solved the puzzle, somebody's going to get away with murder.
Treats all suspects alike: He shoots them. This approach, while effective on the ground, has certain drawbacks in a dirigible.
King of the quick solution. He gets everyone together, explains how it all happened, then looks for the guy who's about to be sick.
Vain and affected, but brilliant. He's at his best with a crowded drawing room, a skulking suspect, and 15 minutes before the bomb goes off.
They say that, just to meet her, a fellow confessed to a murder he never committed. She's that good. (They hanged him.)
French, dense, blundering and utterly lacking in social graces. But very, very lucky.
Charming and debonair, he possesses an absolutely uncanny understanding of the criminal mind. Perhaps a bit too uncanny, as a matter of fact.
She's elderly. She's sweet. She puts people in jail. In precisely that order.
You get the impression he's scattered, perplexed, easily misled. That will not be a lasting impression.
