SummaryA good idea wwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaayyy ahead of its time
The GoodI was 10 when I picked this up. The idea of an interactive comic book on my computer was just too cool for words. And it was actually pretty good. The writing was no worse (snicker) than most comics of the time, and the interactivity was a big bonus - there were a lot of branching points, and you had to go through it quite a number of times to see everything. Plus the graphic effects to simulate a comic book were pretty nifty. (vector-scaled zoom-ins on "panels" and such)
The BadThe CGA graphics were pretty bad, although I'm not sure if an EGA version of this would have been do-able on computers of the day. (still a lot of 4 mhz machines out there) And the PC beeper sound effects were horrible - even 10 year old me recognized that.
