What a graphics adventure! Great pics, great puzzles - something for everyone!

The program is in two parts, Mind 1 and Mind 2. Mind you, you can only play the second part if you've completed the first. And that's not easy. It all starts on a desert island. It's idyllic except for the fact that you haven't the faintest idea who you are, where you are, and what the hell you're doing there.

Still, you're helped by an excellent program. Although the location descriptions are quite short, the detailed large-scale graphics do wonders for creating atmosphere. You'll soon be off and sailing the seas, visiting other islands until you make it to the mainland.

To help you work out what's happening, there's an unusual command - THINK. Use it at the right time and in the right place and it'll drop you hints as to what's going on. And as the game progresses you'll stumble across further clues - thinking about iheni will also reveal a little more.

As a bonus for novices, there's a special Tutorial file on the tape. This'll give you an excellent training in adventuring, making it an enjoyable splash-out for first-timers. Experienced adventurers may find the game limited in its locations, but even so the puzzles are fairly tricky.
