01.) INTRODUCTION G0100
Welcome to 'Escape from Delirium' for the PC, an adventure game released by
Magicom Multimedia Corp in 1996.
Suggestions, comments or errors - tell me about it. Enjoy!
02.) OVERVIEW & CONTROLS G0200
The game is mainly controlled with the mouse. In old fashioned adventure game
style, you point the mouse cursor on the screen to move your character around.
Select the icons to interact with something on screen, or in your inventory on
the bottom right of the display. The icons are pretty self-explanitory, the
typical LOOK/READ, TAKE, etc. The wrench is for USE in case you were wondering.
Use the DISK icon to save, load, quit the game. There are also some more options
When you hover the cursor of an object/person you can interact with, its name
will show up. Quite often the object/person also has a default interaction which
can be selected with the right mouse click. Sort of a short-cut. For example, a
person might have TALK as this interaction.
You ESC to skip the scenes, they didn't work too well when I played it so you
may want to skip them. During the game ESC will bring up a dialog box and asks
if you want to quit the game. During a conversation you can also skip sentences
with the LEFT mouse button.
The RIGHT mouse button can be used to zoom on the location, which is then
displayed in the bottom right where the inventory normally would be. This can be
useful for looking for specific items, i.e. pixel hunting as adventure gamers
refer to it.
SPACE pauses the game.

Return all the way to the village.

YY.) MINI-REVIEW GYY00
This isn't meant to be a full review, just a few notes about the game's pros
and cons as well as other things worth mentioning.
This isn't a very professional game, and I say this with regards to fellow
adventure gamers that probably wanted to relive the glory days of Monkey Island
and Indiana Jones. Because they made this commercially I have to dismiss these
"it's free so it doesn't have to be brilliant" claims that I would certainly
input about some of these Sierra VGA remakes by fans.
Looking at who made this game it is pretty impressive, but as adventure games
go, this borrows heavily from other puzzles and some that aren't just don't come
naturally. There are also way too many useless items and locations that just
make things more confusing. Then the guy never gives any good help for how to
The game is originally from Germany and that clearly shows in the translation.
They did a competent job for the most part but some important things are left
more or less untranslated ('accu' instead of 'battery'). We can figure out what
they mean but it's still a sloppy job.
Oh and the story is a real joke. From some Iranian guy taking the plane hostage
to some voodoo lady telling you what to do. Then you enter a temple and some
rock musicians play there for no reason but that the door puzzle is solved that
The menus and icons are pretty neat, but where the game fails is the bottom half
of the screen. This goes from god-awful character designs to extremely ugly
houses and other locations. The pixel hunting feature helps find some items but
I really don't think this should be necessary.
If you get this working on a new PC, then it is pretty good. Nothing
spectacular and I think
A bad adventure game, and that is too BAD because this is like the old games we
liked rather than modern first-person adventures.
