I totally forgot about this, I remember noticing it while browsing Amazon about a year ago for some obscure Wii games. I figured it might have been a third-person style remake (didn't read the user reviews), so reading your review and seeing these images is a bit of a shock to me.

I think Broadsword's biggest oversight is that they expected the game to sell well alone in an era where gamers have no idea about its origins. I'd hate think they were banking purely on nostalgia value. Or maybe they were betting on people thinking it was based on Mission: Impossible.

Maybe if Broadsword did a collection style release with Impossible Mission, California Games, and other Epyx titles, it might have sold better. Maybe. I'm just theorizing.

Nice review. I'm not gonna lie, I feel like buying this now (for cheap) after reading this, mainly because it seems like an unusual thing to be released as a retail game on the Wii. xD

Yes, as part of a compilation of reworked Epyx games, it would have been quite lovely. I wish that's the approach they had taken, as well. I'm not sure why they went this route, but at least now the game is available so cheaply that perhaps it's still worth a look... long after a purchase would inspire anyone to produce more stuff of a similar nature.

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world
