Uninvited, Deja Vu is a point and click, icon
driven adventure game that has you playing the part of
guy who can't remember anything - where have we heard
THAT before - and so he has to start piecing together
all the clues and evidence he can find. You then find
out that you have to clear your name of murder, and so
the adventure begins.
Visually, the game isn't
very pretty - with plenty of blues and browns to make up
the main focus of the adventure. Sound is scarce, and
the whole emphasis is really on the job in hand - to
complete the adventure.
Unless you enjoy these
kind of early icon driven adventures, I'd recommend
having a quick look at the end and then moving on...
Ah - The Cop Shop.
So the doors are
open... now what?
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Brendan followed a walkthrough for the Amiga version but
some things did differ (he could not open the hood of
the car to find the kidnap victim without the car
exploding - even though he had the key).
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you open the doors to the Police Station, the game
runs through the epilogue and explains how the case was
solved. At the end, you get to complete a fitting
certificate that you can then print out.
