About the Story

As you wake from the fog that clouds your senses, you can remember flashes of the fight... a burst of ice spraying the wall... the ZAP of lighting [sic] slamming the breath from your body... the yelp as Wonder Dog is carried off... the rip of fabric as your cape is torn from your shoulders... and the sound of Evil Man’s laughter echoing in your head.

I've always liked games about superheroes. In fact, I've even written one myself. So when I saw this announced on the ADRIFT forum, I quickly rushed over and downloaded it… and came away feeling very disappointed.

The Adventure Of Space Boy! follows is a game about a superhero whose cape has been stolen and his sidekick, Wonder Dog, is missing. You need to find four items that can mimic Space Boy's powers and also discover what's happened to his cape. Oh, and find Wonder Dog as well I guess although the game never actually says this.

It's pretty obvious right from the start that this is a game by a newcomer and has undergone little or no testing at all...

I have to admit that I never got around to playing Version 1 of “The Adventures of Space Boy! Volume I”, after hearing on the forums that it was a bit buggy. However, after seeing that an improved Version 2 had been released, I thought it was time to take a look. My first thought looking at the file size was that this was probably a large game. However, after playing it, the game is reasonably large but not too much so, with most of the large file size consisting of pictures, which often add hints to the puzzle solutions in the game.

The star of the game is Space Boy who is looking for his Wonder Dog. Apart from this there isn't much story to this game, so it is a puzzlefest...
