One of my friends who is hoping to take up Table Tennis professionally, and who is a computer fanatic, played this game with me on two players. He thinks that it's nothing new and is not even as good as the old Atari version. I agree.
You'll have hours of fun trying to crack some of the many riddles, puns and gags contained in the more than 50 locations of Jon's techno prison accompanied by the strains of Beethoven's choral symphony.
It's not one of those Adventures with hundreds of locations in most of which nothing seems to happen. But it does have that old magic I once sensed when first I stood alongside a sleeping dragon in a sunny meadow!
The beauty of this game, apart from the stunningly smooth vector graphics, is the element of strategy required to negotiate the diplomatic minefield you must necessarily create for yourself by accepting missions from both sides in the continuing war on Targ.
Although there are certain aspects of the user interface in Art Director that could have been a more friendly, the program's wealth of powerful and useful features makes its one of the best graphics packages yet seen for the ST.
The graphics are pleasing without being anything to write home about, but each screen is "busy" enough to maintain interest and you could find this game grabbing you when you're not looking and not letting go until you've mastered it.
