Description:
Atic Atac was a smash hit for publishers Ultimate, who were building a nice reputation for themselves at the time for originality, good graphics, and quality gameplay. You have a choice of character before you begin your quest- which is an arcade/adventure in a maze of rooms - its handy to have a map before you begin..

Some doors can only be opened if you are carrying the correctly coloured key and your life is monitored by a big chicken carcass on the right information panel once the game starts- superb.

Object:

Before you start the game, you can choose one of three characters: A Serf, A Wizard, or a Knight. Each of these characters have a different advantage over the other when you play the game, in that they can enter special passages/shortcuts designed only for that character. I.e: Only the Knight can go thorough the grandfather clocks that are placed in certain rooms.

Find the key that will open the ACG door which is positioned in the room at the beginning of the game, to complete the adventure.

Criticism:
The idea is to explore the many rooms, collecting the coloured keys and finding certain object in order to return to your starting room, enter the ACG doors and complete the game. Not entirely easy, yet addictive and great fun.
Sound is also well used and adds greatly to the game as are the neatly constructed graphics and overhead views of the many rooms.

Sound & Graphics:

The game lacks a decent number of levels unfortunately, but what is present is enough to keep you frustrated and entertained for many hours - but ultimately happy in your purchase. I quite liked this game: the graphics were clear and nicely animated. The level detail was also well composed and the use of colour was subtle. All in all, a good game- pity about the level shortage though.
