2020 was the worst! COVID kept the museum closed for much of the year and a mains water pipe bursting causing a flood kept us closed for the rest.

Dark Side

The second game to use the Freescape graphics engine, which enabled the player to explore a 3D world, solving puzzles and taking out the bad guys.

Incentive first wowed the 8 bit world with Driller, scoring massively highly in magazines such as Crash, Dark Side improved on the gameplay by giving the player more locations, and adding more action oriented parts to the title.

Crash gave this 95%, admiring the slightly improved frame rate over it's predecessor, and the mystical Egyptian scenario, which would be revisited in the next adventure Total Eclipse.

This copy is a bit tatty and is missing the A2 poster.
