Description of Altered Destiny

Designed by Michael Berlyn (of Infocom's Infidel and Polarware's Oo-Topos fame), this is a bizarre text-parser/graphical adventure game with a cliche premise: after being sucked into your TV by a powerful alien, it is up to you to save the galaxy. The parser recognizes a wide range of words, and some puzzles are quite difficult, although all of them are logical once you figure out what to do. Recommended for its overall wackiness and good puzzles.

Even for its age (1990), it's an old-fashioned adventure with text-parser.
MCGA can be selected, but the graphics look like EGA-style but are colourful and partly bizarre.
Anyway, it's a nice, imaginative and atmospheric fantasy adventure.

It's the one and only adventure of Accolade which I know.
Despite of its age (1990), this is an old-fashioned one with text-parser but imaginative.
The nice EGA-graphics are colourful and partly bizarre (unfortunately not VGA).

Also for a game of 1990 an old-fashioned adventure with text-parser but very imaginative and nice EGA-graphics (unfortunately not VGA).

A very odd game. Many alien looking places and creatures. But it was very fun to play. The hardest part for me was figuring out how to ride the creatures up and down the first part of the game. Another hard thing was the syntax you have to use to fill the tube with the shapes (which was, point tube at shapes, or something like that). It was hard for me to tell the big floaters vs the small floaters. Once you get use to what to do and the correct syntax it is fun.
