Manhunter: New York, released in the late 1980s, is an intriguing adventure game set in a dystopian future. In this game, Earth has been conquered by an alien race known as the Orbs, and players take on the role of a Manhunter – a human working for these alien overlords to track down rebels and other threats.

The game is notable for its dark and atmospheric setting, depicting a New York City transformed under alien rule. The narrative is rich and engaging, unfolding as players investigate various scenes and uncover clues. Unlike many adventure games of its time, Manhunter: New York does not use text commands but instead relies on a point-and-click interface for player interaction, which was innovative for its era.

Players spend much of the game following leads and solving puzzles, which require careful observation and logical thinking. The puzzles are integrated into the storyline and often involve interpreting clues and tracking suspects across the city.

Manhunter: New York stands out for its unique blend of science fiction, noir, and puzzle-solving gameplay. It appeals to players who enjoy narrative-driven games and offers a distinct experience with its dystopian theme and engaging storyline. The game's combination of atmospheric storytelling and innovative gameplay mechanics makes it a memorable title in the adventure game genre.
