> R.M.S. TITANIC by Electric Dreams

• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

R.M.S. Titanic by Electric Dreams is a puzzle / adventure game. It's based on the famous sunken ship where you lead a team to raise it from the depths of the ocean. Apparently the map of the Titanic within the game is based on the real locations on the original Titanic itself. This game had me confused for a long time. After numerous hours of playing it all finally clicked into place and I worked my way to the end of the game. It's a shame that all you need to do to beat the game is place specific items at the required location. It's all a bit silly at the end of the day. For example, to open one door you have to find the cherry and place it on top of the ice-cream sundae. Another door requires the ace of spades to be dropped onto the pack of cards etc. R.M.S. Titanic sets you up with a dark, atmospheric and original concept but only delivers a very simple game, which is a case of matching similar items in the correct places. Eventually you will find the hidden buttons that when pushed activate the flotation devices that raise the ship to the surface. This game had the makings of a classic, but failed miserably due to its simplistic and linear game play. All that was needed was a bit more thought about the puzzles themselves. Another C64 title that fails to hit the mark.

The floatation device is activated...

...and the Titanic is raised to the surface.

Captain's Log...

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I found some maps online which helped a lot. I then worked my way through it. A lot of it was trial and error. It took quite a while.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Not a lot. Once the final button is pushed and you return to the starting point, you are returned to the surface. You then return to the media room where Sir Elias O'Connell appears on the TV screen. A message appears which reads 'WELL DONE, THE TITANIC ONCE MORE RULES THE WAVES'.


  • Neil: Absolute garbage. This game took a long time to beat and really wasn't worth the effort. The game is confusing and boring with a terrible ending. Don't bother raising the Titanic. Leave her rest in peace on the sea-bed. 1/10.

  • Vinny: Never played this game; it's not really my thing. Saying that - it does sound fun to play, but judging by the ending, I think I'll give it a miss. 1/10.

FINAL SAY: I suddenly feel a little sea-sick.

G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
