About

The year is 2033. Your name is Tex Murphy, Private Investigator in San Francisco. You've been hired by the beautiful daughter of a university professor to uncover the facts about his death. As you begin your investigation you uncover the deaths of several prominent members of the scientific community. Are these deaths coincidental or is there something more sinister going on?

And which characters could have a motive? Could it be J. Saint Gideon, former head of British Intelligence? Could Frank Schimming, president of the largest surveillance company in the world be hiding something? Or what about Sylvia, the professor's daughter. Is she as innocent as she seems? And why is an infamous Detroit hit man in town?

You'll interact with more than 27 digitized animated characters who respond to questions, bribes, and threats.

You'll rummage through offices, warehouses and factories looking for clues. With out innovative "tree" system you can search without typing.

Use your Lotus Speeder to fly to major cities along the West Coast. This land/air vehicle is a full 3-D solid fill flight simulator.

Stunning 256K VGA graphics combined with RealSound produce a software experience close to real life than has ever been achieved before. Some characters actually talk and respond to questions.

Tex Murphy: Mean Streets reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Game: A very early Version of the FMV Point & Click Adventure. Where to play detective Tex Murphy. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Single Player: Man Plays Tex Murphy in 2033, a Professor was killed and you're supposed to find the Killer. Then you Ask all the People who could have something to do with it to get this Done with Either code or manually to these Points. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Graphics: The Graphics were certainly Super for the time, good Pictures a Kind of 3D Environment in the Speeder and 2.5D sections in Rooms. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Music: The Music is not great. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Control: The Control is very complicated before you start the Game you have to read the PDF manual At Steam, otherwise you have no Chance Of doing anything To reach out. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pro/Contra:-unfortunately only English-control is very complicated----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -----------------Conclusion: Unfortunately, I was difficult to enjoy the first Part, which the Texts require really proper English Knowledge and you have to read the Instructions first. But If you are able to Speak English well, I think good progress will be achieved here. The Controls are really very hard you either work in a Quick Way to move the Codes to move quickly with the Speeder or you drive Minutes from A To B in a Kahlen pixel World. You should always consider the Game is an old DOS Game which has only been designed for Keyboard and has a Resolution of 320x240 which really makes it more of a thing for Nostalgists than for Newcomers to the Genre. So If you want to experience Tex Murphy better, you should rather resort to the new Parts, because there are already Video sequences, mouse and keyboard control and Partial German Subtitles (but only with the GOG Versions)--------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------Summarized: Single Players: 2/10 Graphic: 2/10 Music: 2/10 Control: 2/10----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Game: 2/10
