    Excellent Concept & Design ****

    GAME COMPLETED A COUPLE OF TIMES


    “What do you see when you turn out the lights?” Well in one small town what they see is a ruddy great Aztec temple complete with sacrificial altars. And your friend is the next cab off the rank.

    It’s a wonderful idea, which the developers have pulled off expertly.

    Pull down the shades, close the curtains, and a whole new world is presented to you. Things you do in this world affect your daylight life and vice versa. Intriguing!

    And, as it happens, very difficult. The light/dark thing does take a while to get a handle on, but it’s not the different gameplay that wore me down. It was just one of those games full of puzzles I can’t solve. They’re all well known, but are harder versions. It is disheartening, particularly seeing there is a time score, and each skip adds 30 mins to your time!

    If it hadn’t been for the unreasonable difficulty levels of the puzzles I would have rated this one 5 stars.

    The graphics were not works of art, but they were crystal clear, bright, and interesting. HOs came as lists and replace the objects. The replacement scenes were really fun; the results of your replacement showed flair and humour.

    No voiceover for most of the game, but video cassettes (replayable) were well done and dramatic. The journal was a help, but I sure wish I could have had a map...

    And I must mention the music. Excellent! Haunting and vitalising at the same time, far more upbeat than most. It did get a bit much sometimes, but it gave the game a unique atmosphere.

    Gamers who like a challenge – this one’s for you.

    I recommend this game!

    I loved the concept of the rooms changing when the lighting was different.  Wonderfully done! Okay
