This game is an unfinished prototype by Answer. It is kind of like a real time version of chess. Each player has six pieces to shuffle around on the board. You move a translucent bar up and down to select and move your pieces one at a time. The object appears to be to get all your pieces to the other side. Each piece vanishes as it touches the opposite wall. The game goes nuts when all six make it over, which makes me assume that is the purpose. There is a large letter "E" that moves around randomly, touching this causes damage to your lifebar. As does touching an opposing piece. Neither the computer AI, nor the two-player mode have been implemented. Which means you are going up against a lifeless opponent who just sits there. The idea may have been pretty good if they had ever finished the game.

Collectors Information

This game is a prototype, which makes it nearly impossible to find. If you are purchasing a copy of this, you should have an expert examine it to see if it is authentic (fake prototypes are quite easy to make). There are so few copies of this game that I cannot set a value for it.
