In December 2002, Edge magazine in the UK put out a special edition, called Retro, dedicated entirely to classic videogaming. In amongst a whole host of interesting articles, interviews and features, a select few classic games were 'retroreviewed', each getting its own one or two page spread. Rubbing shoulders with the likes of Elite and Rogue, Captain Blood was one of them! OK, so they only gave it 7 out of 10, but it was still great to see it in print. Here's the summary box from the review:
They don't make them like they used to. Almost 15 years since Captain Blood's release, there is little to compare it to. Experienced today, its shortcomings are more glaring, and its influences dated, but the bold self-assurance and polish stand up to scrutiny.

The Atari ST version was the only version to feature spoken Bluddian.
Bluddian is the language the inhabitants of the Hydra Galaxy use to communicate. In the game, you can speak to the aliens by using Bluddian symbols: there are symbols for about every concept in the game. In the Atari version, each time you clicked on a symbol or that Alien speak to you, the Bluddian words are played on the speakers ("numh" for yes, "duhm" for not...) - if you play enough, you can actually learn how to speak Bluddian.
