Summary

Good concept and graphics for its time....Although there are programming glitches!

The Good

Graphics by HR Giger, always cool. Probably one of the most challenging "puzzle adventure" games I have played. Actions and events are time sequenced, meaning that certain actions must be performed at exactly the right time. Just installed recently on an old PC, fun to go back and play the games I did when I was younger.

The Bad

Several programming glitches, game is notorious for crashing and/or restarting during certain game sequences. After installing the software on more than one machine, I have learned that the software is extremely sensitive to the setup of your computer-must almost be exactly right.-for help email me at [email protected]

The Bottom Line

If you are into early science-fiction games then this is for you. I bet you look though a walkthrough guide before solving.
