the absolute and frozen silence of never-ending deep space, at teh far
end of the cosmos, the
spiral of multicolour galatic cloud wraps up the planet Carpo with its volutes (40 degree of boreal latitude).
Bob Morlock, President of the Kanary Research Corp. has constructed you, Commander Blood, to carry out
his last wishes - to see the birth of the universe. In this fabulous adventure through time and space you will
be helped by Honk, the famous bio-conscience of the spaceship Ark, to defend the oppressed and answer
the great questions of life...
is at the origin of the Big Bang?
The answer may be found in this crowd of stars...
a wierd way, this game is like Myst, in the sense that it's just one of
those point-n-click adventures!
That's alright if you like them sort of games! The picture you see to the left is the TV you can watch
(commercials, information, etc..) When you first start the game, all you can watch is channel 1.
It lets you watch some funky music video of Commander Blood.
right picture is your galaxy map, where you may point on specific locations
and "warp" to that specific
guy in the picture, Bob Morlock (your boss), you can turn to him for advice,
yet he is usually asleep.
The left picture is showing him in his "awake" state, talking... the right one is him sleeping, or falling asleep.
you are talking on the phone with a droid of some sort (left picture)
As you can see, you have a
mini menu you may select from. Honk- your computer, Telephone - which allows you to receieve phone calls
for important messages and call out? (I haven't been able to do that yet) but it has rang quite a few times!
the Cryobox where you can get in contact with Bob Morlock... the
computer will keep you updated
right picture is just one out of the many loading screens when you 'warp'
from one destination to another.
left picture shows the little 'trigger' ball which will allow you to bring
up your galaxy map.
You can turn left or right to bring up the main menu with Honk the computer and check out Ark and your TV.
guy on the right is a droid I assume, and you have to 'guess' a password
to take him with you.
you choose the right code, he welcomes you and you may take him with you
on your trip and use him
left picture shown is another 'warp' movie that happens when moving from
one dest. to another.
right picture is the first world I landed on. This guy talks really funny
(moaning more like it) and you have
the left, this is a commercial being shown when you visit one of the SCRUT
We Need Your Brain? Nah thanks, I'd like to keep mine! Not sure WTF this is all about, sci-fi for real!
the right, now this guy is a REAL whacko! He first calls you telling you
about this great stuff he sells and
to his world, you have no creds, he gets upset and kicks you out! I get
stuck at a point to where I can get
Maybe I'll get a chance to get past that point when I get an obsolete computer, but until then that's all I have!
game was supposed to be released for the Jaguar CD but was apparently cancelled
due to the Jag CD
drive coming out so late in 1995 and Atari went under.
game would have done no justice and would have just added another title
to the system to say the least.
is kinda cool in the beginning and I'm sure the Jaguar CD would have done
an excellent job!
was lost except for a mystery when Commander Blood was not released for
the Jaguar CD.
