This is a bizarre space travelling game from the late 80s, that was ported to many platforms at that time. I have never seen another game quite like it.
From the comfort of your captain’s chair, you have to navigate your ship around the galaxy looking for your clones, which are scattered far and wide.
On your voyages you discover many planets, and the characters living there can help you on your quest, with information.
Though befriending them is not at all easy — there is a lot of politics going on in the galaxy and it’s unscrupulous inhabitants are all eager to take advantage of your ship’s abilities in return for the information you seek, though some should not even be trusted. Every action has consequences, making the game notoriously difficult to complete.
The game was developed by a french studio, and like a lot of french games at that time, it feels very experimental, innovative, and unique.
The music for the game was made by the famous Jean Michel Jarre, taken from his zoolook album.
I think the uniqueness of this game makes it worthy of a visit by Dos Game Club some time.
Happy gaming 🙂
