Summary

A classic adventure game

The Good

I liked the setting of the game, which made me to know Niven's "Known Space"-Universe. There was even a copy of the novel "Ringworld" within the box. I liked the music of the game, which was one of the last scores that made extensive use of the AdLib's capability to play custom instruments.

The Bad

The game was just to short and easy - I completed it in about five hours. There could have been a better storyline, the events of the game did not always fit together very well.

The Bottom Line

This game has a good SF setting, leading you to one of the more exotic places of contemporary SF.
