  1. The masterfully crafted and converted game will keep you haning on every point, click and step of the way. [Mar 2002, p.134]

    The beautiful backgrounds and fluid animation of the original are all spot-on.
  3. A gaming masterpiece, the very fact that it exists in this format is an unbelievable testament to the development team behind it. Absolutely essential for all adventure fans.
  4. One of the few games that manages to successfully center itself entirely around its story.
  5. If you can get over the repetition of asking people about the same things (you do get new information so it is helpful to do so), you will get right into the game and play for quite a long time.
  6. 75
    It's there for those who love a good story and some attractive surroundings. It's not difficult or particularly challenging, but it will absolutely hook you.
  7. It’s hard not to be disappointed by the resolution and graphics, which is more a fault of the screen rather than the game.

    Great puzzle/ adventure game. There are a few bugs in the game. I 'ran' into a few bugs. I had to do the game all over again because i was stuck. That kinda sucked. Expand
