Erika Eleniak heats up this interactive adventure CD-ROM game that simmers with style and suspense. A set of twins-one virtuous, one diabolical, both beautiful-are fighting for fate of aging Skyview amusement park, operated by the twin's father until his recent death. But there's more happening behind park's gates than first meets the eye. As a reporter, you must navigate through a complex web of intrigue to get to the heart of mystery. It's up to you to help the good twin find the park's missing deed by morning in order to save it from destruction. Movies looks pretty needless, except for those with Erika Eleniak of course, their quality is poor with plenty of cutting-from-bluescreen bugs. Sound is a bit more rippled than it should be. In the park you've got to play 12 games in order to get 4 special coins. Some games are quite primitive, some are frustrating, some are interesting. Game is very short, I've won it in 5 hours.
You can find Erika in 54 videos (1st CD 20 - 2nd 18 - 3rd 16), but few movies on different CDs are the same. Glory to lazy programmers for leaving movies in standard AVI format. Erika tries to be convincing, but something is missing... Anyway, Erika's the star of the game and the ONLY reason to buy it.
