quite a good whodunnit game, let down a bit by the spelling. Its always amazed me how people from the 80s could write games yet couldn't spell. I know they didn't have the luxury of spell checkers like now but they had dictionaries so no excuse.
A few small bugs here and there but overall a good game. Relies quite a lot on being in the right place at the right time for most of the game, which you must do to complete it. Took me nearly a week and about 20 pages of scribbling in a book before i worked it all out.
