Reviews

“Adding to the fun was a 3D interface; not unlike Doom, though used for exploration and puzzles, not action gaming. This game engine allowed you to search virtual versions of each scene, for the clues you needed. While the ending is a little silly, the game was still a fantastic blend of real-time 3D exploration, and "interactive movie." A fond game memory.”

“With the release of Under a Killing Moon, Access Software has upped the ante in the genre of adventure gaming. Making a return appearance from Martian Memorandum as a hardboiled private investigator, Tex is ready to fumble his way again to solve a conspiracy involving a secretive organization with an agenda to destroy the world.”
100 – Adventure Classic Gaming

“Truly interactive video with great characters, script, and puzzles. Low frame rates for slower computers and all-but-forgotten art of disk swapping. It's a game that challenges and entertains; it leaves you wanting more of this believable virtual world.”
