It's a shame this highly enjoyable investigation game is no longer widely available because it's still one of the best of its kind. It's based on the Frederick Forsyth book, and was out before the film.

It's in three parts, which are quite wide ranging, as you try to unravel an international plot. The first part of the game involves tracking down the person who leaked some documents, solving other cases and proving your ability along the way. Then it's off to locate and deactivate a nuclear bomb which has been planted in London.

All three sections are well presented and use an icon system. You've got a lot of freedom in what you do, so it's easy to follow up on red herrings. The whole thing is very difficult to solve but is completely engrossing. If you haven't got a copy and can't get hold of one then you'll just have to wait till somebody has the gumption to re-release it or convert it for the 16- bit machines.
