This ♥♥♥♥ing game is a wineskin and crossover emulation, takes two minutes to launch and horrid controls that can't be changed. Voice acting's terrible, the "professor" sounds like he's having an endless voice crack. Models look outdated and freaking terrible like they belong on Bubsy 3D, which is obviously not the aim of the game's textures. However, I give them credit for the map textures.

This is also one of those games that have the pain in the ♥♥♥ "stuck zoomed in on this", where it basically disables the zoom out function on your computer to acess other windows, so if it freezes, you're screwed, you have to reboot the whole computer because CID won't budge.

The fact that this is an emulation is what I can't stand. The developers obviously didn't know how to make an actual port so it runs correctly on Macs and Linuxes. If you wanna make an actual port, buy a Mac or Linux to actually learn how it should work on them.

The storyline, oh my god, as if it wren't more bland. All they're saying is that the world went ballscrazy with safety and that a robot crash dummy was invented. That's it? Why do I see him running through graveyards, volcanoes, and spaceships? I haven't gotten far into it because I already got too bored of this, but why do I see him in such random areas if he's only designed to test safety measures? And if it's a world obsessed with safety, WHY THE HELL ARE SUCH THINGS BEING LETHAL? The cover literally shows him running from a giant robot shooting lasers out of it's eyes, so the plot is misleading.


There is no wonder why this is $2. I'm impressed, I may've found one of the worst games Steam has to offer. I want my $2 back, this was not worth it.

It's an alright game for kids maybe, but for me I found it dull and uninteresting. Doesn't seem to really have anything resembling a plot and CIDs abilities are weak at best. Game doesn't really seem to make any sense, if the game is all about a civilization obssessed with safety, then how do the first few levels denote that your testing out whether things are safe? Poor implementation of an interesting idea.
Gameplay feels copied, that is taken from another similar game, characters are uninteresting, and nothing super duper important seems to happen right off the bat, so I quit playing pretty darn quick. If I could I'd get a refund, since I **never** intend to touch this game **ever** again! I do not recommend this game to anyone looking for anything resembling a plot-based game.

This game doesn't work on Linux. When it works, the resolution is bad. Not really able to experience the game play since most of the time it doesn't work.

From what I played, I hated it. The voice acting was there but horrible. Absolutely dreadful control scheme with no way of changing it. Its also 3-dimensional, but you can't rotate the camera. Yes it's cheap, but you probably won't bother to finish it.
