Similar to Access’ early Tex Murphy adventures, Countdown has an incredible amount of “pixel-hunt” puzzles and several pointless “arcade” sequences. The plot of this game is quite interesting, though (although they might have borrowed it from Asylum, a Commodore 64 classic): you are an amnesiac trying to escape the asylum and find your true identity. Overall, a fun game that’s been overlooked by many people, despite frustrating puzzles, time limit, and some downright bad dialogues.
