2 of 2 people found the following review helpful:One of the best German language games, December 14, 2011
Michael Baltes Spiel mit mehreren Ausgängen ist zu keiner Zeit langweilig und verrät an vielen Stellen seine Liebe zu Infocom-Spielen wie Steve Meretzkys »Planetfall« (1983), dem eine kleine Hommage in Form des Sicherheitsgewebes im Shuttle gewidmet ist. Viele der Rätsel stellen hohe Anforderungen an die Implementierung, die Baltes souverän gemeistert hat. Die Anlage der Hauptgeschichte als klassische Cave-crawl-Story mit aberwitzigen Fallenkonstruktionen ist Geschmackssache, das schmälert jedoch nicht den Gesamteindruck als profundes Textadventure, das zu den handwerklich besten deutschsprachigen überhaupt zählen dürfte.

I scarcely know the woman at my side. I don't even know why she was the one I turned to. I can only hope that we haven't been followed, that she won't ask too many questions. The only choice left to me now is to trust her.

It's happened again. You've had a great night riding around, freaking everyone out with your whole headless horseman thing, and you're about to set off for home when you realise you've lost your head. Well, it can't have gotten far......
