Codename: Iceman.

Post by Tawmis » Wed Oct 08, 2008 5:22 pm

Okay - so who the heck ever beat this game? I get to the part where I am in the sub and I dive down to 600 feet (or whatever it was) to be beneath the pocket of cold water or whatever - and I still get bombed to death. And I am not sure what to fire back and in what order.

This is one of the few games I have, and have played, and get to this part, save and die a thousand times, and give up again. (As if the betting game wasn't hard enough in this game...)

I never played it. What I've heard about it really turned me down. Do you think I should give it a try?
Talk to coffee? Even Gabriel isn't that addicted!

I would recommend it - simply because it's a Sierra game. And Jim Walls. All the way up to getting into the Sub is actually fun. And if you use the Debugger - you can get out of the sub, and technically past it - but I'd rather try to get past it the valid way. And the bottle game (betting) isn't required - just makes it easier later on in the game from what I understand.

Besides, if you play it - and get past the sub attack - you can tell me how you did it. :)

Eager to hear what you think of it. :)
