Here Comes The Sun


IF YOU do not take adventure games too seriously, you might enjoy Here Comes the Sun from Alligata Software. In this somewhat tongue-in-cheek tale, you play the part of the last great hero who must try to prevent his space station colliding with the sun, failure resulting in a solar explosion which will wipe out the universe.

That is the theory, but in practice playing the game more often seems to result in the hero suffering some ignominious disaster, such as turning purple from lack of air and being pronounced "seriously dead".

Here Comes The Sun

The game starts in the airlock of the spaceship, whence you must trace your way to the retro-rockets which will enable you to pilot the ship to safety. Unfortunately, giving perfectly sensible commands does not often elicit a sensible response.

Simple graphics do not add a great deal to the game and in time the humour may pall, but the adventure provides a reasonable amount of entertainment.

Here Comes the Sun is produced by Alligata Software, 178 West Street, Sheffield S1 4ET.
