An old classic brought back by GOG. I remember playing it in my youth, and having fun. It's on par with old Lucasarts games, but with a bit more death (but not as annoying as Sierra's deaths). A bit of pixel hunting sometimes, but fair inventory-based puzzles.
If you like old adventures, and you are able to enjoy pixelated drawings, it's a must. Thank GOG for such old memories back.

I love this game. I played it a LOT back in 1994-95 after getting it as part of a Microprose collection with our new Gateway2000. It has always stuck with me, and it holds up amazingly well. I've told my girlfriend about it for years and now it is finally here! It's fun. It's very rewarding. It unfolds the world wonderfully well and makes you want to discover each new screenread more with excitement. It's one of the few adventure games that it's FUN to die in, because it doesn't really set you back at all and they are varied and graphic. Perverse with a strong sense of female-empowerment. Done with a chauvinistic attitude that it is aware of and criticizes. This is one of my HIGHEST recommendations on this site (along with titles like Torment, The Longest Journey, Interstate '76.)

When I have seen this title, classic feeling has reached my heart. Rex Nebular is a game with small issues but a great advneture with pure fun. Fur sure not as big point&click classic like Kyrandia series, but can make your day. Go ahead and buy it!
