    BASED ON DEMO
     
    This game is really quite different from any other game I’ve seen lately, so I’m finding it a little hard to describe it to you. I’m going to try to do it step by step.


    You are due for a holiday, so you set off in your CESSNA for BIMINI to do a little diving and salvaging. Once you arrive, you enter the airport and browse the brochures. One or more will be highlighted by your cursor changing to a magnifier. (By the way, if you want to use the custom cursor, you have to select it, and you must do so every time you reopen the game.)


    The information the BROCHURES give you will allow you to leave the airport and get the TAXI. You will then see a MAP with the available LOCATIONS, and you move there.


    Each location gives you a little more information or an inventory item, but never very much at one time. The items are usually used immediately, and you may have to return to the same source of information (e.g. Museum) several times. Within a given LOCALE, you will travel by TAXI (ie. The map). Moving from one locale to another is done in the PLANE.


    BLACK BAR COMMENTS, your JOURNAL, and HINT are all available (and needed) to help you sort out where next to go. They give specific suggestions (e.g. It’s time for a dive now).


    You don’t really do much compared to the amount of information provided for the STORY, but you must go through these steps in order to PROGRESS. Having completed all the tasks needed for one locale, the GAME/JOURNAL will tell you where to fly your plane.


    You have VERY FEW HO SCENES to find items, they are not interactive, WORD LISTS, with the highlighted item being your inventory item. As well, some inventory items are retrieved through the EVEN FEWER PUZZLES. None of these are difficult. But they are also NOT CENTRAL to the game. In fact, to my mind the game really only consists of GATHERING INFORMATION.
    All this travelling is leading us to the conclusion that there are aliens among us, but it takes a long time to get there. The STORY itself looks VERY INTERESTING, so I am sorry it is not better presented.


    This is not a game I would enjoy, despite some good production qualities, and the attraction of being different, because it moves TOO SLOWLY. But that’s just me.


    I am sure there are some people who will enjoy this game, if they like easy adventures and fact finding.


    I am on the fence, and can neither recommend or not.
