Description of Interphase

Interphase is an average action game from Mirrorsoft that disappointingly squanders the license of Neuromancer, classic cyberpunk novel it was based on.

Interphase offers two gameplay modes: a typical 2D view of the building you are attempting to infiltrate, and the 3D view that represents the cyberspace environment you are trying to hack. Essentially you move in 2D view from one building to another, coming to a halt whenever you encounter a security door. You will then “jack in” to Cyberspace to track down and delete the 3D polygon that represents the software controlling the security door.

There are plenty of interesting twists to make this mundane exercise more interesting; for example, sometimes you must remove a security camera before your presence is detected, and the zoom facility on the 2D map is invaluable in keeping you aware of all current obstacles. There are some nice logical puzzles to solve, as well, although they are no more than standard variations of a Rubik’s cube.

Despite all the creative designs in the game, Interphase is at the end of the day a letdown due to confusing 3D graphics and difficult interface. The novelty of puzzles and obstacles you face in 3D also wear off relatively quickly, and soon Interphase simply becomes another run-off-the-mill action game that could have been a lot more. For a better use of Neuromancer license, play Troy Miles/Interplay’s classic Neuromancer instead.

After much searching, a working DOS version has been located and uploaded here. You should definitely get the manual for the Amiga version (which also covers the ST), so you can get the idea of the game.

Just confirming that the DOS version does not play. It allows you to select graphics, sound, and control options, goes to a title screen, then after a few seconds it begins a demo. No key has any effect. It could be copy protection, or just a bad copy. I note that at the title screen, instead of displaying a copyright notice, there is a sequence of characters one by one: I C F W D 3 C I

I've no idea what it means, but I'm off to search for an alternative source.

There is a text manual at Lemon Amiga, which should help for ST and DOS versions too: http://www.lemonamiga.com/games/details.php?id=581

This game does not work. It only does demo mode

Interphase actually was a very enjoyable experience, especially if your computer was relatively fast. I played it on an Atari Mega STE (which was clocked at double the speed of most Atari ST's and Amigas) and I definitely had a blast :-
