Although not traditional IF in the sense that there is no text parser, President is Missing and its sequel Presumed Guilty embody what makes great IF: the involving story and inventive puzzles where logical deduction and attention to detail are key to success. Both games cast you as official investigator: President is Missing puts you in charge of rescuing presidents from terrorists, while its successor has a more typical detective plot. Both are innovative on many levels, including the real-time action, great details, and captivating storylines.

Note: In addition to the manual, you also need the cassette that came with the game. This can be found online.
