Summary
  • Spectrum Holobyte Inc's $74.88 Iron Helix science fiction adventure game is crippled by a weak plot and amazingly slow action that forces users to wait for responses after making moves with mouse clicks. The program starts with an impressive montage of alien creatures and effects, and the plot is based on classic science fiction themes, including a runaway space ship bent on annihilating an innocent planet. The player must control a remote probe that works through the enemy ship, trying to crack the weapons system's command code. Unfortunately, the user must tediously search through every inch of the ship for clues such as DNA samples and video clips, and be patient enough to study endless maps and code. Since the game includes no weapons, players must avoid the ship's guard, a robot known as The Defender, by simply running down another corridor on the ship.
