Description of The President is Missing
Although not traditional IF in a sense that there is no text parser, President is Missing and its sequel Presumed Guilty embody what make great IF: involving story and inventive puzzles where logical deduction and attention to detail are key to success.
Both games cast you as official investigator: President is Missing puts you in charge of an investigation to rescue missing presidents from terrorists, while its successor is based on a more typical detective plot. Innovative on many levels, including real-time action, great details, and captivating storylines. Check out the "database" command for comprehensive on-line instructions and background story.
Note: In addition to the manual below, you also need the cassette tape that came with the game, since you must decipher the morse code at one point. You can download the cassette content in mp3 format in the "Extras" section below, and listen to it with any media player.
