Corruption is a hit, make no mistake, it is not large in a location sense, forget exploring hundreds of rooms here, it relies on the characters and timings for all the deviousness. Easy it is not but all the puzzles are logical and you do not need to have a working knowledge of the Financial Times to play. Just a certain paranoia that you will do it to them before they do it to you!
Corruption is great fun, will take quite a while to solve, and should please everyone fed up with more traditional adventure subjects. Its only weakness is that the characters are all stereotypes, from the dumb blond to the macho businessman, and leave one wondering whether in eradicating whimsy from their games Magnetic Scrolls haven't gone a little too far in the opposite direction.
Your Amiga (Dec, 1988)
My only problem with the game, and it must be a personal one, is that I found the general atmosphere of the game so cloying and claustrophobic(Derek Rogers after all, is but a rat in a large and complicated trap) that I had to pack it in before I decided to take a trip to Suicide Bridge. This is not a criticism - indeed it's a tribute to the game's success.
Amiga Computing (Nov, 1988)
Graphics are as good as any yet produced by Magnetic Scrolls and not surprisingly concentrate on people rather than scenery. There are the usual frustrating-to-key-in ciphered hints and at first glance they seem to be less useful than in the past. This may be a mistake, as Corruption is not an easy game to solve and without sensible help some less than zealous players may falter on the wayside. Very good, but not for those who like to take their time finding things.
Zzap! (Sep, 1988)
Corruption may not appeal to hardened sword-wielding swashbucklers, but nonetheless recommend it to all.
Commodore User (Jun, 1988)
The last thing Magnetic Scrolls wants is for gamers to spend their money and be disappointed. They see Corruption having a limited appeal amongst their traditional fans, and possibly a much wider following among business users of computers. Having said that, it doesn't necessarily mean that you won't like the game.
Adventure gamers who have had their fill of slaying dragons, etc., will surely find Corruption an intriguing change of pace!
