Metropolis Metropolis

An obscure adventure game that was at the time of its release something of an innovation because it offers digitised speech through the PC speakers (although, it has to be said that the quality isn’t that great, it sounds like something akin to Welsh*).

In Metropolis you play a security agent assigned to investigate crimes in a futuristic city. Gameplay is parser driven (you type in commands) and most crimes are solved by asking question of the city’s inhabitants.

The graphics are functional and the less said about the PC speaker speech the better (damn that hurts my ears) but neither detracts from what is a highly original and charming game.

I like it, if you have any taste then you will too.

*Marrsy apologises to the nation of Wales and acknowledges that the Welsh language is a beautiful thing – if you like your face drenched in another persons phlegm that is.
