Jennifer Is Missing is an innovative CD-ROM detective game featuring the TKKG gang, but you have to keep your wits about you if you want to successfully solve this case. As the title implies, Jennifer has mysteriously disappeared, and you are quickly faced with a number of questions to answer. Why is Sandra keeping so quiet? What is Peter, the nasty private tutor, up to? And is Barbara Dupont as dumb as she makes out?
The news of Jennifer's disappearance is broken to her friends (Tiger, Kevin, Katy, and Grunter) while they are lounging around in a café, eating ice cream and talking about their school holidays. They immediately drop everything and go searching for her--it's your job to help them. Before you set off, you click on one of her friends (your detective partner), who will tell you about his or her family and interests. Then, by simply clicking on the map of the city, you can visit different locations and ask witnesses the crucial questions.
All budding detectives must be prepared for a lengthy assignment and bear in mind that some of Jennifer's friends are better at finding clues than others--Grunter likes to eat and talk about chocolate all the time, but Kevin is nicknamed the computer brain and is the genius of the bunch. Choose wisely or you may have your work cut out for you.
The only downside to this game is that you really do have to work hard to follow the leads and crack the secret code. But Tivola, the publisher, generously provides plenty of help for any young detectives who get stuck. --Justin Hunt
