How is the score only 6.9 for this amazing Atari ST classic??? I'm shocked. It's one of the reasons I originally bought an ST. 10/10

A very challenging game. The player spends more time navigating around than shooting. It is also quite addictive but takes some patience to play.

Recommended if you like games that are more than shoot-the-baddies.

I bought a second-hand ST just to play this game.

FTL did some fine games for the old ST. Dungeon Master & Oids are two of my favourite. Both of them are classics!

Spent a hell of a lot of time on this one. Very challenging at times to navigate through the narrow tunnels - almost absurdly so. But you could always release steam by firing a smart bomb at a nice tree-filled park. You could go so far as to start a tortuous rampage of sorts with the hostages, but this game was still in the era where this kind of thing was harmless and actually quite fun in video games, rather than gruesome and shocking as it is today. Not surprising that it was an FTL project. In fact, I probably owe the existence of any remaining brain cells from 1989-1990 to the team at FTL that made this game as well as DM and Sundog. Thanks guys - it was quite a trio of releases.

Very simple but very good game as all FTL games.
