Who Framed Roger Rabbit is an adventure game based on the groundbreaking live-action/animated film of the same name. The game attempts to capture the unique and whimsical essence of the film, blending elements of detective work and puzzle-solving in the fictional world where cartoon characters coexist with humans.

In Who Framed Roger Rabbit, players assume the role of private detective Eddie Valiant, who is on a mission to clear the name of Roger Rabbit, a cartoon character who has been wrongfully accused of murder. The game follows the narrative of the movie, allowing players to explore both the animated world of Toontown and the human world, interacting with various characters from the film.

The gameplay is a mix of point-and-click adventure and puzzle-solving. Players navigate through different scenes by clicking on locations on the screen, interacting with objects and characters to gather clues and solve puzzles. The puzzles are integral to the game's progression and require players to think creatively, often involving humorous elements true to the tone of the film.

The graphics, while rudimentary by today’s standards, capture the distinctive styles of the animated and live-action environments. The game features iconic locations from the movie and appearances by several beloved characters, including Roger Rabbit, Jessica Rabbit, and the villainous Judge Doom.

One of the challenges of Who Framed Roger Rabbit is its open-ended gameplay, which requires players to explore extensively and pay close attention to details to piece together the mystery. This aspect of the game, while sometimes leading to aimless wandering, also adds to its replay value, as players may discover new clues and interactions in subsequent playthroughs.
