D'accès relativement simple, ce jeu constitue, aux dires des concepteurs, une introduction aux jeux d'aventure. La syntaxe est correcte et on peut, notamment, écrire plusieurs ordres à la suite, reliés entre eux par « then » ou « and ». Cependant, après avoir vu et lu la superbe documentation allant avec le programme, on se sent pris d'un immense sentiment de frustration lorsqu'on découvre que le jeu est uniquement en mode texte.

This game is an exciting and challenging adventure. True to the Infocom style, this game is G-rated and contains no offensive material.

All children's software today seems to be designed for the preschool through kindergarten age group. The rest is for adults. Seastalker, like The Hardy Boys, is for ages 8-14, and even 10 years later it remains about the only game specially geared towards them. Since the purpose of children's software is always to educate as well as entertain, an all-text adventure seems especially appropriate. It's only a pity that there aren't more.
