Beneath a Steel Sky
"Too late!" are the last words you hear from your captors before the chopper crashes. Your only chance of escape, so you make a break for it with the security forces a breath away.
You find yourself at the top of Eyre Tower in this futuristic gothic looking city, dark and forbidding like something out of Blade Runner. To escape your recapture you need to find a way to ground level in this large city. Armed with your wits and the use various computer terminals, personnel cards and other items you find along the way, you might just live. A voyage into cyberspace could help if you manage to interface with the use of a Schriebmann port. However, things aren't as hopeless as they seem since you have your trusty friend Joey to help you as well as your good looks, which don't go amiss with Anita, not just a factory employee.
The humorous dialogue, typical of Joey's personality, makes the gameplay quite light hearted despite the surroundings. The game authors have gone to some effort in providing interesting and comical responses to the players actions. Also the hand illustrated scenes, which have good detail, make this adventure game a pleasure to play. It was quite enjoyable to discover new parts of the city. Also, the length of the adventure was good prevented boredom and over complexity.
I found the game quite enjoyable due to the artwork, storyline and overall fun. A simple plot developed into an interesting outcome with various pieces of the puzzle revealed as the game progressed, keeping my interest. Above all: Have fun and Be Vigilant!
