Summary

Bizarre

The Good

The "full-screen" animation was quite impressive for the time...

The Bad

One word: WHY? Who EVER thought it would be a good idea to port a fully-animated Laserdisc game to the PC in 1989? While the graphics were, in fact, quite impressive given how much power the PCs didn't have, they still looked awful most of the time. And there was pretty much no sound at all. Plus they had to chop out huge loads of the game to fit it onto a reasonable number of floppies. And that's without even getting into the "gameplay," which is still infamous to this day. Watch the animation, and when you think Dirk is about to be in trouble, hit an arrow key and hope you made him jump the right way. That's it.

The Bottom Line

See this game as evidence that no idea, no matter how bad, cannot make it to market.
