Fab game, iffy controls

Utterly love the game. Real time makes it very involving, like you're actually there. Only downside is that you don't want to miss anything, but you can rewind at any time and try listening at a different door or following another character. The storyline is really enjoyable and the characters are fun.

This would easily rate five stars if not for the controls. I got used to them quite quickly, right up until a fight near the end. No matter how quickly I tap down to block a blow, I keep getting killed. Don't know if I'll be able to complete the game. Will try a few attempts each day.


The amount of hours I spent getting this to work on DOS on my open pandora console, with sound glitches etc, and now I stumble upon this in the store, is amazing! It is one of the most important games of its time, graphics, open gameplay and the original way you can rewind mistakes etc. This is a must buy for all those who enjoyed it before, as the graphics and gameplay are so much better, also supporting this game could give rise to developers choosing to remaster such similar original epics in the future. Definitely A****!!!

Don't this game!

I grew up playing this game and was over the moon when it appeared on the App Store! It still retains it's charm and the real time gameplay is very impressive. I used to have to play it with a walk through so as not to miss anything so I'm glad they have included hints in this version! Bravo Dot Emu-buy this game today! Now all I need is an iOS port of Dark Earth and my life is complete!
