Storyline

It seemed like a normal day. Sit back at your computer, put in a new CD-ROM and relax. Unfortunately the galaxy had other plans. Without warning, a loud crash introduces you to the Starship Titanic: The Ship That Cannot Possibly Go Wrong. As the galaxy's most most prestigious, most impressive, largest and therefore most expensive interstellar liner, the Starship Titanic should be the flying treasure of the universe. Unfortunately something has, quite obviously gone wrong, or at least gone unexpectedly. The ship's main computer, Titania, has been sabotaged and gone insane. As a result, all the artificial personalities that manage the ship are also affected. You'll need to deal with a DeskBot, a BellBot, a BarBot not to mention a sarcastic parrot, a proud elevator and a stupid bomb. Without time or consideration to any other options, you find yourself quickly shanghaied aboard the Titanic, given an cheap, economy-sized room and put in charge of fixing the puzzling situation aboard the ...

Buyer beware
22 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

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."
