The Dante's Inferno police procedural one

Text adventure. Identify and locate a suspect within the nine circles of hell. Requires either significant knowledge of Dante's work or to combine lateral thinking with internet searches. Literate but playful. Brief, perhaps a little too mechanically simple, but would certainly have been feted as a free IF work in its own right.

A three-year-old's review:

No commentary. Simply meowed like a cat for ten straight minutes, occasionally pausing to chew the sleeve of my jumper.
