Altered Destiny Michael Berlyn / Accolade 1990

Designed by Michael Berlyn (of Infocom's Infidel and Polarware's Oo-Topos fame), this is a bizarre text-parser/graphical adventure game with a cliche premise: after being sucked into your TV by a powerful alien, it is up to you to save the galaxy. The parser recognizes a wide range of words, and some puzzles are quite difficult, although all of them are logical once you figure out what to do. Recommended for its overall wackiness and good puzzles. It has some absolutely fantastic visual design, with graphics that push the 16-color limit to its breaking point. The game runs on the same engine as Les Manley in: Search for the King, which means it's practically identical to the SCI0 interpreter Sierra used for the likes of King's Quest IV and Space Quest III - artistically it's not only on par with these titles but perhaps bests them.
