Receiving an impressive 920 rating in issue 11 of ACE, Corruption is the latest release from the software house that brought you Guild of Thieves and The Pawn.

As with Suspect, even people who don't normally go a bundle on adventures should get good value out of Corruption. The game makes you a partner in a London stockbrokers, but only hours after your promotion you find yourself arrested by the police.

Aided by excellent graphics and a powerful parser, you must travel about London and investigate your colleagues and their shady associates. Someone has put the finger on you, and you must either find the true villain or end up in jail. Even better, you must nail the person responsible and get your revenge.

Corruption is a tricky game and you'll have to use your head if you're to crack the case. Every move in real life uses up a minute of game-time, and you'll find your self hard pushed to solve the puzzle before the end of the day. Adventure fans will love it and those normally accustomed to arcade action could well find it a good introduction to text-based games.
