Innocent until caught is a game full of tongue-in-cheek humor, similar to other popular space-adventure games, such as the Space Quest series. However, unlike the Sierra games, this game is virtually unknown, despite decent graphics, witty dialogue and an interesting, if only a bit silly storyline.
The interface is identical to most classic point & click adventure games, including an iconographic control system and an inventory.
