This early Dynamix game is a “cinematic” adventure reminiscent of Cinemaware games of yore, starring you as secret agent David Wolf. Gameplay borrows heavily from classic James Bond movies, but are well implemented thanks to designer Damon Slye’s outstanding wireframe 3D programming (Slye would go on to greater fame as designer of blockbuster Aces flight sim series). Adrenaline quotient is kept high as you battle baddies and engage in daredevil dogfights. The action never lets down, and the action sequences get more and more difficult, making this a game for joystick experts only. The badly scripted plot and dialogues and poor cutscenes fall far short of Cinemaware’s “interactive movies,” and disqualify it as an “adventure.” Nevertheless, enjoyable arcade sequences that are quite advanced for their time puts this game above average.
