"Agent 4-F From Mars" annoyed me right from the word go. Okay, maybe that's a little harsh but any game that starts with lines of text which appear on screen at very slow intervals and can't be speeded up no matter what you do isn't going to impress me much. After that, fortunately, it got better. The game seemed to have a reasonably engaging storyline (within the 1 hour confines) and I was just thinking it might not be a bad game after all... when it ended. Yep, all of 5 or 6 moves into the game it was over. I started again, waited an age while the text displayed itself, got into the game once more. And, lo and behold, it was over again. I managed to examine a couple of items this time and discovered that I wasn't carrying anything, but that was about the sum of it. The intro started again... but not for me. My patience ran out and I went onto something else.

You're a martian en route from Mars to the Sun (or the solarity, as you like to call it). You don't have much respect for your authority figures, so do what you want. Whatever happens, happens.
