Interesting -- maybe I just happened to run across a review from someone who didn't like it?

It's one of those games that looked interesting when I saw it on ebay, but then never looked interesting enough on my shelf to actually play.
It's definitely a distinctive and nice-looking game. As for playing it...well, I spent about an hour on it sometime in 2017, and I just remember saying to myself "Hoo boy, if I try to beat this one, I'm in for a long slog." But it's possible that I didn't fully understand the game.
I wish I could remember whether it displayed properly in NTSC mode; I have a PAL/NTSC converter and a CD-i that can do either one, so I may have tried it in both. That development studio has at least one game -- I think it's Golden Oldies 2 -- that doesn't work properly on NTSC systems.
(Speaking of CD-i games with PAL/NTSC issues, there's also De Zaak van Sam, a short but memorable FMV game in Dutch, with English subtitles that get cut off -- at least on my CRT -- unless you play it in PAL mode. I'd love for the Critic to review that one sometime as it's pretty amusing, but it's extremely rare!)
