Of course it's not cheap but the best never is. If you on a disc drive go out and buy it, you won't be disappointed.
As in any Infocom game, text descriptions are superb and build the correct atmosphere for an adventure as intriguing as this one. It is not an original idea but. given the Infocom treatment, by far the best adventure using a circus as the environment. The excellent packaging for
which Infocom is now famous includes a souvenir program, well-detailed instruction book and even a ticket for the show.
Once again, Infocom has proved that imaginative text cannot be beaten and this
game is another amazing example of its work.
The wealth of information provided, and the almost human quality possessed by the computer when of of Infocom's games are loaded, never ceases to amaze me.
By any normal standards the game is excellent - but is it truly excellent by the standards that Infocom have set themselves?
