Screen shots were taken from Jack Orlando: A Cinematic Adventure by Topware Interactive. Only the necessary actions to finish the game are mentioned in this walkthrough. You can pick up a lot of items in this game, but most of them aren't useful. I disregard some locations too, for they aren't essential. Between brackets I will give the order of the dialogue options.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a very linear game, so if some action or even some necessary conversation is missed you will not be able to proceed successfully.

Act I: Crime Scene and Jack's Place

Alley and Police Station

The game begins in the alley where you were knocked down. Next to you lies a dead man, Major Pete Reynolds. When the cops arrive, you may use dialogue options (2,2). When the inspector arrives use (4,1,2) and they will let you go and give you 48 hrs to prove your innocence. If you choose to use dialogue options (1,2,3,2,1) instead, they will take you to the police station. In the cell you will meet Bernardo (3,2,2). Use the fist-icon on him and he will give you a name, Don Scaletti, the boss of organized crime in town. Use the fist-icon on the door and talk to the inspector Tom Rogers (4,1,2,2). After this you will be brought back to your apartment.
