- Guilty - Innocent until caught 2 -

Innocent until caught was a point and click adventure game and a moderate hit when it was released. It starred you as Jack T. Ladd, a notorious thief, wanted by the IRS for not paying his taxes. This time he's still wanted and in the intro you can see that he's trying to pull off a heist by threatening a cow, unfortunately for him he's captured by an interstellar cop called Ysanne Andropath and imprisoned on her ship. Soon though things take a change for the worse as you are both put in the path of an interstellar war and soon you'll be trying to save the entire galaxy.

At the start of the game you can select to play as either Jack or Ysanne, both paths will lead you to the same locations and problems but the puzzles will be entirely different. The start depicts this perfectly because when playing as Jack you will have to escape your cell and sabotage the ship so Ysanne can't take you to prison but playing as Ysanne the ship will be sabotaged already and you will have to find a planet to land on to repair the damage. Very occasionally the two have to work together to solve a puzzle and continue the quest.
The story starts of simple landing on a mining colony to get gas for the ship but you soon find out that all the miners have been killed by aliens and that there is now an interstellar war brewing. Things snowball from there when your ship is confiscated by the army and you have to steal back your navigational computer after which you can go about gathering information and items with which you can defeat the aliens.

The game uses the same interface as the original game with simple icons used to perform actions like use, look and take. You can see all of the exits on a small map which is great and you can place any items in your inventory, anyone who's played a graphic adventure before should be right at home. Graphically it's on par with other games and sometimes there are even prerendered 3D sequences but mostly there are handdrawn backgrounds and characters in VGA format. Unlike some adventures the objects which you can interact with are often quite visable so the pixelhunting is left to a minimum which is always good and you cannot die in the game so you can use your time for the puzzles.

Guilty, or innocent until caught 2 as it's also known as, is a passable sequel. The problem is that the story is quite standard and just doesn't grip you in as there isn't a lot of interaction with other characters. The graphics are ok but there is little in the way of music to add to the atmosphere. The good thing is that you can play the game as two different characters which basically doubles the replay value. There are far better adventure games out there but this one isn't too bad, it just doesn't really stand out.

Overal rating: 7.5/10
