I'm honestly surprised no-one ever remade this game with more up-to-date graphics, because that might succeed in making gamers pay more attention to this lost gem.
I have this one on CD. I wonder if there isn't an updated version.

I have 2 or 3 copies myself, I loved it but the controls was a littles rough. I would love to see a remake myself.

Nope. Looks like the CD is the same game with about 30MB of extra crap thrown in.

I can't remember if I ever heard of this game before, but it sure seems worth a look. I like theses sort of games, where careful planning and observing are more important than lightning reflexes.

Flashback, Prince of Persia and Blackthorne are among my all time favorites, and I love Cadaver, too. This seems to be a nice mixture of both, and the graphics are kinda cute.

Thanks a lot for digging up this overlooked gem! :thumbs:

This is a great puzzle/action type game! Probably my favorite game like it; it was like Chip's Challenge or Contraption Zack, with some tough puzzle parts, but it had such a cool, dark atmosphere too. And I think the puzzles were a bit easier in this game than in Contraption Zack or other puzzle games of the time. A very cool game!
