The GoodWell, it was one of the first games to feature a 3-D perspective, and there is some nice music in the game, despite each piece lasting for about twenty seconds. There is a demo that shows new players what to do in the game. And even though the web looks bland with its strands colored gray, it can be quite colorful as the organisms leave a trail wherever they go.
The BadTo me, almost every element of this game is downright horrible. Upon loading the game, you get one of those title screens that is ugly to look at. There is two screens of text, but both of these are obscured by black bars that go up the screen. It looks like the title screen is put through a satellite!
In the game, you play on what looks like a web. Your first task is supposed to freeze one of the organisms into energy clusters, but due to iffy controls this is almost impossible to do without crashing into their trails. And if you do, you have to start the task all over again, even if you have already froze others. Since there are no lives, the game never ends, but at least you won't have to look at the title screen again. You would be pretty pissed if you manage to freeze all but one organism, only to be sent back to the bottom and must start again.
Your character looks nothing more than a bunch of musical notes. The organisms themselves don't look like anything identifiable (although I remember later they look like duplicates of Saturn moving around). When you freeze them, they actually look like bright stars flashing.
