I got this title yesterday. The intro reminded me of the Critters DVD menus... wow, that's a long intro... I did read the manual that comes with the Jaguar version. So, I selected the Arcade Mode but I could tell right away that the sound needed more work. There's a portion of the floor missing inside the ship where you can see a "star" which makes me think this is a prototype instead of a finished product. Then, the music can punk out on you just by pressing pause, which was the first thing I did in game. It was an annoying clicking sound. It started doing that again today and the pause menu sound settings changed nothing. Venturing out further, there are areas of terrain that look passable, but it takes some clever maneuvering to get any footing. I died yesterday and today, but today I got a game saved before the end and collected some items. Now, I wish I knew what all those gizmos on the health screen meant. Like, what are the different colored lines for? How do I know if I'm tired or hungry? I'm going to check out that PDF on Songbird's site next.
For some strange reason, I keep wondering where I left off in my MYST game.
I printed out the PDF of the white book. It explains all the health stuff. The annoying clicking sound is something going in 'in game' as its also present in the 3do version.
