Contact Sam Cruise

This is a viewed side-on arcade adventure with a humourous feel. You play, obviously, Sam Cruise, and at the start of play receive a telephone call asking you to meet a woman in a hotel. You move Sam around using up, down, left, right controls, which enable him to walk the street, enter doors, climb stairs etc. Your view is always that of outside the street - when Sam enters a building he disappears from view, and you can only see him as he passes windows. Icons at the bottom of the screen will tell you what objects are in your immediate vicinity, and you can inter-react by pressing various keys on the keybaord.

This is quite an absorbing, atmospheric little game which is nice to look at - and pretty hard too.

Rerelease/Original score 9
