User Reviews

A very disappointing masterpiece DOS Adam Luoranen (93)
[v1.0] A diamond in the rough that could well use severe polishing. DOS Indra was here (20930)
Why it's not even best game of the year baffles me DOS R M (3)
Not just best sci-fi, but possibly best *game* period. DOS WizardX (117)
An incredible adventure such as is rarely seen. It inspires and satisfies. I have never played it's like, nor do I believe I ever shall again. DOS Steelysama (106)
The game that singlehandedly justified buying a 386. DOS Jonathan Daggar (5)
A Starflight clone. Windows Jeffrey Graw (61)
A breakthrough game in lots of aspects DOS vulture (17)
Manic Miner in Space DOS lucian (40)
Simply the best game ever! DOS Frumple (1052)
