Mystery in London: On the Trail of Jack the Ripper

Hidden object murder hunt from Big Fish Games.

Consumer Press Release for Immediate Release

March 2009 – Do you think you can unravel what is perhaps the biggest unsolved mystery of all time? Focus Multimedia has added an exciting new game to its range which has you following the trail of the infamous Jack the Ripper.

Licensed from Big Fish Games - one of the world’s leading casual game developers and the world’s leading online destination for games - Mystery in London: On the Trail of Jack the Ripper is an innovative new take on hidden object games.

As a collector of rare books and curiosities, a leisurely trip to London takes a spine-tingling turn. You discover a very old and valuable copy of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, and between its aged covers is a note, signed “J.R.” Further investigation unearths the realisation that you have stumbled across the trail left by infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper.

You are immediately launched into an adventure which has you scouring the City of London in search of further evidence to uncover his true identity. Stunning cut scenes tell the story of the horrific crimes which took place in and around Whitechapel all those years ago.

Search beautifully recreated historic locations such as Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace and London Dungeon using 360-degree panoramic views. Find the required items, then use your sleuthing skills to piece together the clues and expose the identity of the man who has eluded experts for over a century. But, watch out! There are those who will stop at nothing to prevent you from discovering the truth.


• A unique gameplay twist – as well as hunting for hidden objects from a list, you’ll also search for items based on their silhouette, category or even locate the subtly moving items in a scene.

• Explore 30 iconic locations around the City of London.

• Challenging mini-games will test your sleuthing skills to the max.

• Fun Facts give you interesting snippets of information about each location on the map.

Guaranteed to put your detective skills to the test, Mystery in London: On the Trail of Jack the Ripper will have you sleuthing into the wee hours of the morning.
