Description of Sink or Swim

A fun action-puzzle game that nicely crosses elements from Lemmings, jump'n run games and [a James Cameron movie minus love story].

The SS Lucifer is sinking and so you're off to lead the panic passengers to the exits in 60 puzzle and danger-filled levels, saving them from a certain watery death. Nice comic-style graphics (with a fun intro), good adlib music and fairly interesting gameplay will keep your attention for a while. Sink or Swim is quite an enjoyable game. Actually, for Zeppelin standards (of that era) it's exceptionally well-done! ;) *
