Summary

Interesting, at the very least.

The Good

While AFAIK not being the first ever CD-ROM game, it's definitely one of the first. I got this with the Creative Multimedia Kit (1x caddy-based CD-ROM drive, Sound Blaster Pro and software, some of which I still use to this day) and never got much of a chance to play with it (it disappeared a while later), I remember the full motion video which dazzled me, and the sound quality which was amazing for the time.

The game itself is also quite good (as far as I can remember...), but since I got this at 1993 (I was 9) it was very difficult for me to play it.

The Bad

Completely unreplayable.

The Bottom Line

A neat little game which is now completely outdated.
