This is a charming little adventure that features the "Virtual Theatre" engine-- NPCs follow their own agenda, and finding someone you need is almost a puzzle in itself.
Puzzles are logical and interesting, some of which have more than one solution. The interface is also very flexible in that you not only can form verb-noun commands, but can also ask other NPCs (or order your sidekick) to do your bidding. The only fault I can think of for this game is the lackluster graphics and some irrating pixel-hunting. Don't miss this one, folks!
Originally published by Virgin Interactive in 1992, Revolution has released the game as freeware in 2003. Three cheers to yet another game developer who recognizes that the best way to treat great games that are no longer commercially viable is to spread them :)
