Although by no means revolutionary, Innocent Until Caught is a fun, "light" sci-fi romp in the spirit of Rex Nebular that features a creative interface for using and combining items. |
You are Jack T. Ladd, an intergalactic thief and womanizer who gets into one misadventure after another in his quest for fame, fortune, and -- of course -- women. The best thing about the game is the many innovative puzzles that have creative yet logical solutions. Using the game's excellent "sandbox" interface that allows you to place objects anywhere in your inventory and manipulate them, you must combine a lot of items together to create useful gadgets. The game's mildly raunchy and cheesy dialogues are funny and never overkill, and most characters are memorable. Definitely a must-play for anyone interested in casual sci-fi games that nevertheless offers tremendous play value. Two thumbs up!
