Help with the downloadable games

If a downloadable game is an .exe file, just click the link, and choose open. The game will usually be installed among your other programs (otherwise you can choose where you would like to install it during the installation process).

If the game is a .zip or .rar file, choose save, and save it to your pc.
Extract it in a new folder using WinRar for example (if you don't have it, get it from here: http://www.rarlab.com/).
Then click the installation file (in most cases .exe file) or the file that starts the game, and your pc will install it, or launch it respectively.

  • Bow Street Runner (Chapters 1-5)

    This is a mystery adventure series with several chapters.
    You play the role of a Runner investigating crime in a series of scenes throughout London of the 1750s.
    Use your mouse to examine each area for clues and evidence, and interview witnesses in order to gather information. When you've got enough information, you'll be able to move on to the next scene.

    The game is not suitable for young players.

    UPDATE April 9 2008:
    Chapter 5 is out!
    If you ask for hints, please add the chapter number.


    Play Here
    (Since the game contains video sequences, the loading for players with slow internet connection is long!)


    Please use spoilers to give hints:

    There are a couple of spots in the game that are going to be nearly impossible for anyone using a touchpad. One of those, I believe, is required to go farther in the game.

        No, I meant the part where you take the pocketwatch from the guy with the beautiful teeth.

        I couldn't do the stitching with a mouse, either. And I got stuck on that same screen, guess it's a bug.

            Its Olde London Towne, everyone had bad teeth - no dentists or Colgate. I'm from there originally, and it's still pretty much the same even with (or because of) free NHS dentists
            I can't sew up the woman, or give the right evidence??

                You've got to be quick to grab the hair.

                EDIT: I'd make a terrible cop. I can only figure out the first evidence to present - proving the same person killed the father and the son is a lot harder than I thought.

                    I finally got the hair. I sort of got the impression that I was not gonna be able to present the right evidence no matter what. Being a rookie and all. And the guy ends up floating and now we have to find out who murdered him in the next episode.

                    Nice game.

                      I thoroughly enjoyed this one, too.

                      I tried every piece of evidence I thought would be ironclad, and they all kept getting shot down. But surely there has to be a way to convict him, even if it doesn't matter in the end. I read on another forum where someone asked about needing a piece of evidence I hadn't gotten to just yet, so I'm sure there's a way to get further than I am.

                      Now I am contenting myself with only clicking the dead guy's middle finger so it extends, because at the end of the day I am eight years old.

                        I can't seem to get the hair or the...whatever it is at the watering trough. It stops, and won't let me back out.

                        Never mind. Got both.
                        Now I'm stuck at the Black Bull Tavern.

                            I'm thinking maybe he was not the actual culprit...perhaps there was someone else who had hired him to do the killing...but I don't think the evidence we have is enough to support who I think hired him...
                            I'm addicted to escape games!
