    Looks good, but I have a little suggestion. Right now to lay a bomb you have to press "b" and a direction. It took me a long time to figure that out. It might be easier if you only have to press "b" cause I also walked into some plants when I tried to lay a bomb...

    Other then that, it's a good game with great graphics.

    That was very well done! There's only one thing that bothered me... when you touch the thorn bushes, Walter should bounce back -- there were a few times where i didn't even realize i was touching the bushes until i lost all of my "repair" kits or whatever.

    Anyways, good work!

    Is this book only available in the UK? I looked on the US Amazon and it wasn't even able to find anything. Even with the ISBN #.

    Thanks for all the comments. I'm glad that you like the game. In answer to your questions/comments:

    Olorin - Walter always places the bomb directly in front of where he's standing. You can just tap the arrow keys to make him turn on the spot without actually moving. If you stand back from the bush, make Walter face the bush and then press 'b' to drop the bomb everything should work out quite nicely.

    ouest_cote - Yes, you're right. It needs to jump back or make some kind of "ouch!" noise. Then you'd know that you had walked into the bush. As I said, we do provide the complete source to the game so we're hoping that people will create their own (and much better) versions of the game

    cditty - It's actually published by an American company, so it will be available on Amazon.com very soon. You can buy it directly from the publisher at http://www.coriolis.com (just search for author "James Robertson").

    [-TV-]Ares - Unfortunately, there aren't any plans for a German version at the moment. But I would be happy to help anybody who doesn't understand ANY part of the book. Just let me know via this forum.

    Kind regards,

    JR
