The Amiga version is a lot better than this. I think I've found an easy way to beat the game. Just keep visiting your girlfriend/wife (be nice to her) and finally she should help you kill Santucci. Works at least in the Amiga version.

Yeah, I had this for the Amiga and agree the graphics were superb, most of CINEMAWARES stuff looked fab, one of those companys that stood out from the crowd. Despite the lack of colours in this PC version it still looks fantastic for its day. I cant remember much about the gameplay except that most of the time you were just choosing between 2 or 3 options BUT it was always a joy to look at, fantastic faces on all the characters!

you can download the Amiga version directly from Cinemaware I think, with WinUAE or similar it's no problem emulating an Amiga, but you'll still need some kickstart ROMs.

The cinemaware sites great and I have this game for the Amiga emulator, will dig it out to remind myself how good it looks/sounds. I still find it fascinating to see these old games I used to play on the AMIGA and finding out what they were like on the PC. When you consider that visually theres not much difference between PC,PS2 and XBOX these days its amazing that the PC and AMIGA games were so different looking way back then (wheres me zimmerframe!), games like everything in this world are just becoming clones!

the thing that really got my goat on the amiga version, which i have in my disk box sitting next to my amiga 1000 in the basement, is that you have to have 1.5 megs of memory for the newspaper to spin at the beginning of the game! but, yeah, the amiga version was much better than this EGA version on the pc.

ahhh...spinning newspapers, I wish there were more in modern movies, those were the days.....now its all automatic weapons, explosions, sex, swearing and crude jokes. Spinning newspapers were so inoffensive and kept one man in the movie business for nearly 3 decades. Did you know that? it was a guy called Edgar Carson who did ALL the newspaper spinning in the early movies...using a stiffened paper on the end of a stick which he'd point at a camera and twirl rapidly, he was a master at it...could do it in either direction depending on the directors requirements. Now I guess it would be a computer generated paper, the art of newspaper twirling has died out..and they call that progress!
