Prisoner Of Ice Chaosium Inc. / Infogrames 1995

Created by I-Motion (Infogrames' short-lived label), Prisoner of Ice is the sequel of sorts to Shadow of The Comet that unfortunately doesn't live up to its predecessor despite sporting better graphics and a more expansive plot. Another game in Infogrames' line of H. P. Lovecraft inspired game started by Alone In the Dark, Prisoner of Ice puts you in the role of Lt. Ryan, an American agent stationed aboard the submarine H.M.S. Victoria on a rescue mission to the Antarctic. The Victoria picks up two mysterious crates during the course of the rescue. Before you know it the Captain is eaten alive by the cargo, a horrific monster with whom you are trapped aboard the submarine. And that's just the start of your problems. It features a very simplified version of the classic adventure game interface, where you can left click with the cursor to operate an object or right click to look at it. The program won't let you do anything with these objects, other than the few appropriate actions needed to advance the game. The plot of Prisoner of Ice is one of the best ever seen in a horror adventure, and it is well-paced. When it moves along smoothly, it is a lot of fun to play. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen often enough, and even with a lot of frustrating pixel-hunting, the game is over way too soon. Worth a try for horror fans, but don't expect the gripping experience that Shadow of the Comet offers.
