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.
E1M1 Magazine (Nov 17, 2020)
Quiver is made up of three core 9-level episodes, as well as an add-on episode. It's gonna take you at least 3 or so hours to complete if you're good - but you could easily find yourself spending upwards of 5 in the game if you're of average or lesser skill level. It's a game definitely worth the time investment if you're already beaten all the classics, but not necessarily one to pick up and play betwixt games like Blood and Turok (both of which came out the same year as Quiver). If you're after something with a lot of personality, even if it's a little rough around the edges, give Quiver a shot - it's not like you'll be making fajitas in any other 90's FPS.
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.
