Bermuda Syndrome Century Interactive / BMG Interactive 1995

This is a fun but frustratingly difficult side-scrolling action adventure that is all but unknown outside a few countries in Europe. It tells a story of Jack, a World War II fighter pilot who was shot down into a mysterious jungle during a dogfight. As his plane comes hurtling out of the sky, we first catch a glimpse of our princess (yup, the Amazon-type one), all tied up and ready to be a Tyrannosaur's lunch. Fortunately for her, Jack's plane chops its head off on the way to crashing. Jack is left hanging from a tree by his parachute, with the princess still tied up on her platform. The game immediately will remind you of Delphine's Flashback. The graphics are much better here in SVGA. The controls in Bermuda Syndrome are not as intuitive, however, and coordinating some of the moves can take some practice, so you must save often. One of the major differences is that in this game, you need to worry about the *princess* even more than yourself, since she tags along merrily, oblivious to any danger she faces - and she can't fight, jump, or swim like you do. This means you not only have to deal with menacing dinosaurs of all kinds, but also have to protect the princess and keep her in your sight all the time. Fortunately, she does serve as an in-game hint system, and talking to her when you're stuck will often yield important clues. The game is also HUGE (228 screens), and you'll die a thousand deaths before finally finishing it.
