Actual Crimes: Jack the Ripper (PSP Minis Review)
For those of you not familiar to the hidden object genre, you are presented with a cluttered screen filled with a ridiculously wide range of objects. The objects here all fit the setting of the late 1800s. Using a cursor you must find the items listed on your left. The graphics are well drawn and generally static apart from the odd bit of rain for example. The music sets a quietly sinister tone while the ambient noises add a decent touch of atmosphere to the game.
You can opt to play one of two ways. The Rookie setting will let you play through the game casually, while Detective mode will impose a time limit upon you and will remove ten seconds from your timer for every wrong item you select. You’re given plenty of time, but it would have been nice to see some sort of scoring system included.
