Ice & Fire Animatek / Zombie Inc. / GT Interactive 1995

Promoted as the thinking person's Doom clone and created by Alexey Pajitnov and Vladimir Pokhilko (the authors of the reknown Tetris), Ice & Fire thrusts you into one maze world after another, forcing you to battle alien enemies as you explore each level, looking to free your cryogenically frozen compatriots. Level access is controlled by passwords found on earlier levels, so, until you find them or don't have all the keys, then you are stuck. All of these maze levels are contained in the larger framework of...another maze! This maze, on the outer surface of an asteroid, forces you to make split-second directional choices while flying and battling enemies. Thankfully, a map can be transposed over the screen (in all levels) to give you some idea of where you are. Regretfully, the controls in the larger maze are so unresponsive that, even when you know where you want to go, it's a real challenge to get there. The game is incredibly challenging, and puzzle buffs will be in absolute heaven. If you are looking for action, though, you'll likely find the enemies more repetitive than challenging.
