The Orifice from Outer Space IS a strange game! Written by the author of Dungeon Amethysts , Alchemists 'n Everything and Scary Tales, it sports a 16 certificate. As with the previous games, this game is a parody of traditional adventures and is very amusing.
You ore on unclean and nasty orifice which -in a recent surve - nine out of ten sentient beings in the Known universe (who expressed a preference) found extremely undesirable. You have few friends. In fact, it was one of these "friends" who offered you the unmissable opportunity of an inter-galactic package holiday. But something went wrong and you were accidently knocked unconscious. When you awake and struggle free of your comfortable nailed-down crate you discover that the "pleasure-cruiser" is in flames'
Thus yen must escape before the cruiser explodes This part of the game Is amusing, as you encounter the various characters on the ship, including the rather too friendly captain, a young boy and a beautiful kitchen officer.
Once you have escaped from the ship you land on a planet. Once again you must escape - this time so that you can return home. The only way to reach the space port is to collect reading material for the clerk at the Town Hall and so you must explore the planet to find these items
Orifice is a fun GAC-ed game, hut does it deserve the 16 certificated Well, it is quite risque in places, but doesn't really deserve the rating. In fact parts of the game have been censored (jokingly!) so that you cannot examine yourself or the naked Kitchen officer'
In short, Orifice is a great game, but it suffers from the same criticism as DAA it is a touch 100 easy. The author compares the level of difficulty with thai of the first part of a Level 9 game and reasons that he wines games that anyone can complete. On saying that, Orifice is only £2.50 and for that price you jus', can't lose.
