Review by  Ryan Aycock
Reviewed on 2004-11-22
Attention span: 5/10 Repetitive fighting with enemies
Controls: 4/10 Just press numbers and [ENTER]
Implementation: 7/10 Effective animation, numerous files
Overall: 6/10 Too many grouped files

In what is perhaps the most graphical program ever released in BASIC, Hitoshi Koizumi's Stardust proves that is possible to write an entertaining game that still holds some speed. In this space odyssey, which the author claims is largest 83 file ever made, the user plays the part of the last remaining fighter pilot in the battle of good versus evil.

Although Stardust is entertaining, it is nothing more than movies and graphical menus. It's like Drug Wars, but with pictures. The author may have taken time to make a long and well thought out intro, but the story quickly drops from there. At one point, you are even prompted for your name so that it could be used in the tale. There is one problem with this, however. You have to reset your memory after the intro to make space for part one (of four) of the game itself. Your name is never uttered again.

This PG-13 program contains numerous grammar mistakes as well as profanity. At many points during the movies I wanted to scream out because of the egregious mistakes in text.

Mr. Koizumi may have tapped into something with this program, though. There could be many movie-only programs in future. The author's method of condensing text is well done. And the use of programs that require multiple grouped files will some become common.

If you have constant access to a Graph Link and don't mind sitting through long movies, I suggest you give Stardust a try. However, be prepared to take on a tough challenge (the author had to re-release Stardust because it was too hard the first time) in order to see the password-required ending.
