For some reason this game never really excited me... it was too dull to be honest, and just shooting monsters endlessly and going somewhere would bore me too quickly.

Yes… I'm afraid this game – like many of these shareware pieces on the IBM – is just subject to severe fuzzy nostalgia attacks for many.

It might be said fuzzy nostalgia, but I do have some rather fond memories of this (and similar games, mainly from Apogee). It was hard as hell, yet the setting was cool enough to keep me motivated.

Well, I wouldn't say it's a bad game. It's just hard to understand the big buzz around it.

I think like with most Shareware titles the buzz was mainly because of two things: The games were free and had next to no competition (on the PC).
