I played this game for just under two hours. I found it interesting, but I spent at least half the time being stuck and not knowing what to do.
- It's another old (2005) point and click adventure from this publisher and developer, but the user interface is better than their other similar titles
- Your objectives are vague and it is easy to spend a very long time stuck and unable to make progress just by missing a single small detail

You have a pre-rendered 360 degree panoramic view of your environment. When you move to different locations your perspective will be that of the new location. I haven't played Myst before. But I've been told that this is basically what Myst is like.
-----You interact with the environment in order to solve problems and progress through game. You find many items which can be used with certain objects in the environment. Certain inventory items can be combined with others to create new objects. Not all items appear to be essential to progressing through the game. Some items and actions appear to unlock extras such as information about characters and lore about the alien species.
-----So you start in the very confined space of the shell which has been fired out of giant cannon to take you to the moon. It was an interesting location. But unfortunately I spent over an hour in this tiny little area area. This was because I often became stuck and couldn't figure out what to do.
-----Inside the shell you periodically get to the point where you are running out of oxygen and need to find a way to remedy the situation. Once this happens you have about a minute to get more oxygen otherwise you die. I died at least twenty times or so. When you die you reappear in the shell and you lose no items or progress, nothing in the ship resets to it's originals state. So dying from lack of oxygen didn't really serve any purpose except to be a nuisance. It took me quite me a while to find the solution the first time. The second time also took me a quite a while to discover. I basically found myself scraping the bottom of the barrel. I had to actually look up a walk-through. It turned out that all I needed to do was turn a small wheel. I had no idea about this even though I'd searched through the whole shell again and again. This is what I spent most my two hours stuck on.
-----Finally I arrived on the moon. Which was an interesting place. There were various colorful and animated plants, I came across some alien technology and you had to made great leaps across a chasm in order to navigate the environment.
-----But I soon got a stuck again for a substantial amount of time. Only when I was coming to the end of my two hour play-through did I figure out how to progress some more. Again it was something kind of obvious which I'd just overlooked. Things at that point got a bit more interesting again, but unfortunately I didn't have time to keep playing.
-----I know some people will be against this notion. But sometimes it can be too frustrating to get stuck for so long. It would have been cool if there were more specifics hints. This feature could be optional so that people who want to do it the hard way still can. Hints could have cool-down and only become available once you have been stuck for a certain amount of time in order to prevent over-reliance on them. But it's probably a bit too much to ask from an old game, and yes I'm sure some people would feel it would ruin the challenge.
-----When I stopped playing I'd found several alien machines. Including a coin operated telescope which was quite amusing. There is also a whole series of 'ideograms', basically alien hieroglyphics. You are able to decipher these in order to understand some of their meanings. I thought that was quite interesting. These ideograms apparently must play a role in understanding the operation of the alien devices and so on. I also caught sight of the aliens but I was unable to get close enough to interact with any of them.

The game looks alright, keep in mind it is an old title. I think the pre-rendered graphics is a better alternative to 3D graphics which probably wouldn't have looked very good at a level that PCs were capable of running back then. Some areas can look a bit plain, such as the interior of the shell especially if you've been stuck in it for over an hour lol
-----Once I'd gotten to the moon, the game reminded me a quite a bit of the another old point and click adventure title, The Dig. That game was by Lucasarts and in it you also travel through space and spend the game on a alien planet solving puzzles to progress.

I like the game, but I'd find it hard to make the time for. Ideally this is a good game if you are prepared to spend a lot of time figuring out what to do and have a lot of patience in case you get stuck for extended periods unable to make progress. Otherwise you could refer to a walk-though to guide you. There is at least one available which is you can find on YouTube.

I've already played this game long long time ago, before Steam was created and, I recalled it as a good game.
What I forgot is that this is one of the hardest adventure games I've ever played.
Lot of imagination behind this game and, lots of headaches trying to progress in it.

I played the first release in 2006 and recommend it to all adventure lovers. Combining items solve Riddles and a super amazing atmosphere that makes this Game unique. Since you can play it more than one time its worth the 5 bucks.

Great game, But quite annoying to set up on WIndows 7 - Requires right-clicking the Game.exe and adjusting combatibility mode to Windows XP. For anyone interested in point-and-click adventure games I do recommend getting it though, especially because it is quite cheap with a coupon.

I played this game back in 2006 I think and am very happy to see it on Steam since I lost my old copy of the game. I found the puzzles actually very fun and the entire game is put together well with 360 degree views of certain areas in a good amount of detail, especially for a game from 2005. There is only a couple timed puzzles, though dying in the them does nothing except cause a small cutscene which is easily skippable - also being able to save at any point in the game is useful. The inventory system is easy to use, though organising it can be a little tedious. Also, there is multiple ways of solving most things, and some puzzles aren't even required to do until later in the game - (You might even solve a puzzle without knowing what it's for until later!)

Overall, A very good point-and-click puzzle-adventure game.

For anyone who can't solve puzzles and requires a walkthough there is a couple on the internet, and I have written my own in the Steam 'Guides' page if you are interested, it also explains how to set up the game on Windows 7, and it might also work for 8. (But don't hold me against it if it doesn't...)

I would not recommend this game. There is a lot of time spent trying to figure out what the heck to do next. Little to no explaination as to what you should do to progress. I got to the moon, three hours into it. I got stuck (for the millionth time) and quit after 15 minutes of clicking everything I could. There are also certain things you need to find for achievements, but it's extreamly easy to miss them. (Throw something important off of the shuttle perchance? It's okay, you can restart all of your work.) I bought it on sale, it still wasn't worth it to me.

a)I could not get it to run on my windows 8.1. Tried all the standard fixes with no luck.
I noticed others having the blank back or white screen problem.

b) After trial and error I did get the game to run. Please see forum message for solution.
