Description of The Clue!

The Clue! is an original mix of adventure and strategy.

You are Matt Stuvysant, a young criminal wannabe trying to strike it rich in London... through robbery. Adventure elements include talking to other people for clues on potential targets and recruiting accomplices and getaway car drivers, while strategy involves planning every detail of the burglary, including escape route and more.

Great game overall, but difficult due to the wealth of information and names you must keep track of. Still, if you like adventure games that successfully combine elements from other genres, or just unique games in general, The Clue! is a must-play that will keep you entertained for dozens of hours.

Two thumbs up, and an entry into our Hall of Belated Fame.

fun game but a manual would be really useful.

Intro works great, good music and graphics, however when I get to the train station part, where the game begins, I cannot control the game at all - keyboard or mouse do not appear to be working, and all my other Amiga games work.... anyone has this issue?

Great game this, you plan and carry out burglaries of famous buildings through out London. You have a planning phase where you hire accomplices and purchase equipment and a getaway vehicle, then set it in motion and see if it all works out. I could never work out how to use clock cards properly though always seemed to trip the alarm no matter what.
