...I guess it's an automatisated description for games nobody of the stuff wants to write about!
"With perspective..." ...there should be 2D, Isometric, 3D etc. perspective if the tag was given, but without perspective there's nothing XD

What a joke! How can the description say that this is an "excellent game"?

This game is nothing more than a "Hunt the Wumpus" clone (the original dates back to the early 70's:

Is that the best they could do in 1988? I mean, even the beginner programmer that I was at the time could have done it!

Coming from the guys that gave us Cosmo Cosmic, Commander Keen, Duke Nukem, Monster Bash, Wolfenstein 3D, etc., this is PATHETIC!

A "game" to avoid.
