Summary

An amazing classic, such as is rarely seen.

The Good

This game is simply amazing. I first played it on my neighbour's Amiga and was stunned, then played it on a friend's 286 and was again stunned. This game rocks! Fluid, beautiful graphics (vector-based... not a novelty, but it does look excellent) and quite realistic animation... great storyline, amazing 4-channel music (one of the rare games in this period which used modules) and excellent gameplay.

The Bad

It's really, really difficult. I never completed it myself, but I know people who had and had seen the ending on numerous occasions.

The Bottom Line

A real classic, one which is simply a must-have.
