What a great day for my nerdity. I've played The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy up to the point where I'm playing with spare Improbability Drives and Advanced Tea Substitutes, almost without reading hints.
This is exactly the kind of game that I hate: one where you can die, it's easy to die and save/restore are essential parts of the gameplay. Heck, if I forget the atomic vector plotter, how long will I stay roaming until I finally discover that it was essential?
At least I'm putting my Palm Pilot to some use.
