The Hollywood Murders (1997) is a text adventure with graphics by Michael Zerbo. You can read the screenshot to get the basic story premise. It’s a game designed for novice players and hence is actually very playable even today. I thought it was a fun, albeit short diversion and is now available for free here.

I’m a fan of IF and there are many, many great ones around, with or without pics. So it’s very nice to see some text adventures-with-pics in this thread, but I have to disagree that this particular one is “fun”. It’s simply awful. Totally linear. A bad parser (try typing “take all” when looking at the contents of a drawer). Hardly anything to do except opening doors, putting on glasses, and guessing what the developer was thinking. Certainly nothing like a real puzzle. The plot sucks. The writing is bland and uninspired.

Sorry.
