Silicon Dreams review

Computer Gamer (1987): "The parser is of a high quality and understands such phrases as 'get all except the laser' and 'take the box and open it'. You can temporarily save your position to RAM and, should you make a fatal mistake, the OOPS command lets you go back a step. The three games come complete with comprehensive instructions and a forty odd page novella. This package is a treat for adventurers everywhere."

Retro gamer collector's corner:
