A graphical adventure that places you in the shoes of Jake Ryan who, as a child, witnesses his parents being brutally murdered. Thirteen years later, he has graduated from the Police Academy, and is about to start his career. Little does he know that the past is going to return to haunt him.

In Blue Force, you control Jake as he starts his police career. Immerse yourself into into this police adventure - stolen National Guard weapons are rumored to be circulating in the area, and it's up to you to investigate. Blue Force was designed by Jim Walls, the mastermind behind the Police Quest Sierra series.
