Reading this review reminded me of how much I miss this game. If I remember correctly, this game also has a sequel. I remember buying a three pack that had this game, the sequel, and some stupid Federation Acadamy simulator, which consists of some old fart telling me my score is inadequate despite doing everything the mission called for.

I disagree with the part about combat being unresponsive. I never had trouble changing speed, direction, or firing weapons. Sure, the lack of locking on is kind of a pain, but it's no big deal.

But I like how you explain how mystery and exploration are the key themes here. This is certainly an interesting, albeit tricky, puzzle/adventure game.

I've replayed this earlier this year. Ship to ship combat is doable for the most part, at least until the final battle with the odds heavily stacked against you and a good dose of luck required; in-battle saving almost impossible to do without.

Compared to that, even ticking off the Klingons in mission 5 and then destroying all four warships they throw at you is actually easier, though Spock will let you have it for probably starting a new war.

Sashanan, have you ever played Dalek Attack?

Nope, this is the first I've heard of it. Worth the try?

Well that's what I wanted to know really. It's a Commodore 64 platformer based on Doctor Who. As the HG C64 expert I thought I'd see if you had heard of it.

Regrettably not. But my interest has been piqued.
