Summary

Snake Logan kicks three bad guys' butts in only 3 days.

The Good

I don't see why this game was discontinued! It works great on modern PCs. The game engine and graphics are great, the sound and music is very cool, and the plot is inspirational and fun. Another fun part is the apogee room!

The Bad

Some levels were only 20 seconds long. That's about it.

The Bottom Line

This game is awesome if you like Commander Keen or Duke Nukum, or classic sidescrollers. The graphics were pretty good for Apogee's last EGA game. I also am obsessed with the game engine, as I have found several games that have it:

1. Commander Keen 4-6 2. ScubaVenture (?) 3. This Game 4. Dangerous Dave 2-4
