Still, this is a fun game to play. If you are looking for the newest and best, SVGA, blood and gore shooter, this game is not for you. If you want something that will run on a 486, no gore, but still fun to play, give this one a shot. It's only a 2M download, and that includes a locked version of the full game. Try it, if you like it, you may purchase it and receive a key to unlock it. Bottom Line: Runs on older machines, has no gore, and is fun to play. Older graphics, no multiplayer ability, no end bosses, and no joystick support may turn some people off.
Their slogan is, "It might not make you quake, but it'll make you Quiver", but that is only true for those with low-end systems; otherwise, Quiver won't even make you blink. I'll say this once more -- if you've played Quake or Duke before, this game will look pitiful to you so don't even bother; but if you are one of the many people with a low-end system and are dying to try a 3D first person shooter, this may be what you need. The 3-level demo is a mere 1.9 meg, so even if you're stuck with a 14.4 modem (or slower) the download time should be reasonable. The full version is encrypted in the demo and can be unlocked for $29.95.
Ich versuche nun schon seit Tagen, dahinterzukommen, was Programmierer dazu bewegt, ein unzeitgemäßes Spiel wie Quiver auf den Markt zu werfen. Nach langem Überlegen fielen mir zwei Erklärungen ein. Der Chefentwickler sperrte die ESD-Crew vor sechs Jahres in ein dunkles Kämmerchen, abgetrennt von der Außenwelt, um das Actiongenre neu zu definieren. Wäre dem so, könnte man Quiver lediglich vorwerfen, fünf Jahre zu spät erschienen zu sein.
