My first computer game bought in tandem with the 486 SX 25. As a kid who didn't speak English I had no clue what to do. But now, 24 years later I have finally solved the Case of the Serrated Scalpel. What a great game, especially storywise. It can be run super easily via ScummVM. Thanks to the programmers of this great emulator!
If you like point-and-click adventure games such as Monkey Island or Indy, go for it. You'll probably even find the riddles rather easy. And just imagine. Such a great (and great-looking, the pixel art has held up great) game of only 7 mb.

Game occasionally creashes for me when ringing doorbells and the like as well as during the intro movie. I skipped the movie and watched it on YouTube instead and turned off digital sound to get past crash points in the game.

No sound. Tried to run the install but the settings are never saved.
Can't access portrait.lib error after leaving setup

If the game crashes, try using DOSbox 0.73

I seriously hoped for more title of the Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes game, but alas looks like this is the only one. Still, it's a damn good game

One of my all time favorites. Just played through it again and it still holds up.

I originally brought a boxed copy of this and it came on fourteen 5 1/4" disks.
