The Last Express in an award-winning adventure game designed by Jordan Mechner, who is best known as the creator of the Prince of Persia franchise. Originally released on PC in 1997, the game is now being made available on iOS devices for the very first time thanks to DotEmu, a Paris-based developer and publisher that specialises in modern releases of retro titles. In The Last Express, the player takes control of American doctor and fugitive from the law Robert Cath, who boards the Orient Express after receiving an urgent telegram from his best friend Tyler Whitney. When he finds Tyler dead in his compartment, Cath finds himself embroiled in a plot equal parts conspiracy, politics, romance and murder.
