The Colonel's Bequest reviews
Computer Gaming World - Issue 70 (1990): "Unless you disliked past Cinemaware releases such as Rocket Ranger or Lords of the Rising Sun, you will undoubtedly like Desert. Fans of 50's science fiction films will, of course, be delighted with the "authentic" atmosphere of the game. They should not think, however, that this is just another pretty set of sounds and graphics. It Came From The Desert is a very playable and compelling game with many enjoyable hours to be experienced."
The game was reissued in 1993 to supplement the release of the sequel, The Dagger of Amon Ra. This version corrects some errors with special effects (for example, the fireflies in the opening boat ride and around the dock are more visible and move less erratically).
