It's not uncommon for British humor-based games to be made somewhat user-unfriendly (ever try "Monty Python's Complete Waste of Time?"). This one is no exception, for reasons I don't feel like listing.
My advice: if you buy it at all, buy it for the humor instead of the puzzle play, because it takes way too long to advance without having someone tell you what to do. (This isn't my first puzzle game.)
Dwelling on the positive side, the absurd-looking objects and miserable specimens reflect the late Douglas Adams very well. The robots and parrot have been endowed with the best voices for their comical personas. Everyone who plays will find at least one character to knock their socks off, if only in prolonged conversation (yes, that feature is something of a plus). Unfortunately, you're bound to get tired of it all before you come too close to repairing Titania.
In short, despite the lovable seductive characters, you're in for a spell of annoyance if you commit to "Starship Titanic."
