Review: A terrific game with excellent 3D graphics that capture the spirit of the game perfectly. It is possible to just let the computer take over the control of your character for the routine sections. There are several solutions to the game which increases the longevity greatly and it still looks good today, mainly because few people have ever tried making this style of game on the later computer models. Highly recommended!
