Atari 8-bitThe Atari Times (Aug 18, 2004)
The Eidolon was an amazing game for its time. The graphics were the best. The music themes and special effects work well with the overall package of this game. There were a lot of small details that this game had. The Eidolon was definitely in a league of its own. It’s hard to believe that an Atari 8-bit computer could handle such a great game.

Lucasfilm's most original release yet, containing outstanding graphics and gameplay elements. The Eidolon is both immaculate in it's conception and execution. Not to be missed.

With seven caves to explore, a host of nasties to bash and the most terrifying many-headed dragon you are ever likely to see The Eidolon is a winner.

A classic, absorbing Lucasfilm Game. Really close to a movie that you can walk around in. The atmosphere built up by the manual rises the deeper you get into your own mind to look for the Doctor.

This was the third Lucasfilm fractal graphics arcade adventure from Activision, and it's certainly worth getting on budget though I never thought much of it at full price. [Budget re-release]

EIDOLON ist ein farbenprächtiges Spiel mit guter Grafik und ansprechendem Sound. Die Idee ist zwar nicht übermäßig originell, aber gut umgesetzt. Die dem Spiel beigelegte ausführliche Broschüre gibt alle nötigen Informationen zum Programm, läßt aber vielleicht etwas mehr erwarten, als das Spiel halten kann.

Grafik und Ton sind etwas schwächer als bei „Koronis Rift“ ausgefallen, liegen dennoch aber weit über jedem Durchschnitt. Auch die Handlung ist nicht ganz so stark, kann aber auch über Wochen und Monate hin fesseln.
