Real Crimes: Jack the Ripper Stalks onto DSiWare

Posted by Zach Kaplan

If only Nintendo had been around in 1889...

Virtual Playground is soon to bring the PC-based Real Crimes: Jack the Ripper to Nintendo's portable download service. It was developed by Big Fish Games, also responsible for Mystery Case Files: Millionheir. The ESRB recently gave Jack a "Teen" rating and describe the game as follows:

This is a seek-and-find adventure game in which players assume the role of an investigator attempting to solve the mystery of Jack the Ripper. Players search for clues among scenes of jumbled objects, interview suspects, and read a narrative that details the timeline of five murder cases.

So, if solving the heretofore unsolvable murders of London's streetwalkers sounds like a fun way to spend your lunch break, this may be the perfect game for you. A release date has yet to be announced. If you're on the fence, you can download an hour-long demo of the PC version from Big Fish Games' website.

Yeah Nintendo was founded in 1889. You should know that on a Nintendo site I mean they just made playing cards back then but still

layton and phoenix wright? Oh come on, people. This is just another one of those games where you do nothing else besides searching for a list of items on a static screen (with some scrolling) within a time limit. Nothing more and nothing less. There's no puzzle-solving or other adventure-tasks to be found here.
