About the Story

While searching for riches in the forest, you come across a spaceship which takes you to different places and times. Difficult, with multiple mazes, but rather engrossing.

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


When you accidentally launch the alien space/time vehicle that you find crash-landed in the woods, you also accidentally damage the navigation circuit that would return you to Earth. A nice big game, with several alien environments to explore. Chiefly mechnical puzzles, with some random examination of scenery required. Occasional misspellings and a few bugs (for example, you can put a spacesuit in a box while wearing it.) One planet is strewn with mazelike areas, but at least the rooms in them come with complete direction lists. Hunger is a factor, unless you figure out how to prevent it.

Puzzled game, December 5, 2008
by tadsPro (Oklahoma)
A good thought game but does not focus on the audience. The game is heavy in the sense that it has more lines of code. The puzzles are to hard to solve but still it is a good idea to review this game for learning TADS language.
I think i wont solve this game for now but i may continue to play it later on.
