Did anyone play this? It came out in 1993 and it basically saved Activision financially. Without this game, Activision probably would have died off. Anyway it was a point and click adventure set in a really bizarre world, with FMV acting and stuff. Really good game, game had a lot of soul.

I did play it but I did not get very far. I can't remember why but I think I just had so many games and I was really more into fast action at that time.
it was impossible without looking up the answers. I had a small booklet strategy guide which explained how to solve the different puzzles.

YES that was it I remember now. I got caught on an early puzzle and was just like screw this.
It was the whole atmosphere/setting of the game that really captured me. You go into that weird underground world where all kinds of weird stuff exists. That game had soul.

I totally agree that game really oozed atmosphere and an interesting secret world. I kind of wish I gave it more effort back then but I was at a different point in my gaming life back then, haha.

On the back of the box it said "Be entranced by a cast of Hollywood stars," but I didn't recognize anyone. Oh, the guy from Flash Gordon.
