Obitus review

Computer Gaming World (1991): "Even with its lack of depth and without an adequate (or even useful) instruction manual, Obitus can be a satisfying experience. The fact that the arcade sections are relatively low-pressure enhances the game's playability as well as the chances that the player will survive. The program offers many hours of exploration and danger, and plenty to see."
