All the production values of a B-movie, but without any of the cheezy fun. Trixter (8736) 0.5 Stars0.5 Stars0.5 Stars0.5 Stars0.5 Stars

Trivia

Credits

The credits refer to someone producing "gastronomical sound effects". This is a reference to the person who provided the "burp" sound in the game.

Development

Was programmed in Turbo C++ using the Genus PCX Programmers Toolkit. Also used RealSound for all sound.

Hints

The HINTS.BAT file contains the too-easy hint "Find Letters Around The Hints, Each Abbreviates Down". This refers to a file named FLATHEAD included with the game, which lists hints, tips, and cheats.

Planets

The very first intro screen is a montage of Jupiter and the Galilean satellites, Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. All images were photographed by Voyager 1 spacecraft. You can find the original hi-res image at the NASA website. The image 'ID's are P-21631C, 79-HC-256. Most of the planets you visit in this game are in fact, Jupiter itself and some of its moons.
