Snow Job is basically an expression that denotes the manner of conducting a conversation, deceiving the interlocutor by deceiving him. In our case, this name was given to games for the game console Panasonic 3DO. Sex, drugs, striptease, armed bandits, with all this every day people in New York. We also have to face this in the game. We will play for Jock LaMonte, former police officer. At the moment, you live in New Mexico, when you find out that your ex-girlfriend Lara Calabreze - a well-known judge, is in the black list of the leader of the gang, nicknamed Snow Man.
You must in any way help Lara, and put an end to the gangs rampant in New York.
The very same game takes place according to the type of quest with inserts of FMV. You have the opportunity to watch, go and interact with objects and communicate with people. You can even climb the Internet on the World Wide Web.


The cursor (eye, mouth, hand and phone) is toggled with the L button. When the eye changes color, A button can describe the object on which the eye is pointed. If the cursor turns into two feet, then using A, you can go to the door or a similar passage pointed to by the cursor. To put back an object taken with A, use the B button. To approach the object, use R + Up.
C - view menu that allows you to use: a notebook with phone numbers, a wallet with a credit card, a dossier with clippings from newspapers, photos, etc. Items that you collect using your hand are added to this menu. The map should be used for travel around the city.
Numbers from the notebook can be dialed on the phone: sometimes you manage to get through and "talk", choosing from the appearing menu options for an answer. Using a computer, you can go to the Internet if you know the network address of the subscriber. A hacker network (HackNet) is also available.
