Reviews by Rosemary Young
"Journeying to the centre of the Earth has never been
easier. Jules Verne would have been surprised to learn that there's an elevator
to take you part way there, and then there's the Earth's axis too; a red and
white striped barber's pole so that you can slide effortlessly from the North
to the South Pole."
"On arrival in the centre of the world you find it is
populated by a hoard of weird, part-mechanical, part-organic creatures; the
descendants of the dinosaurs who were sucked in during the previous disastrous
tune-up. They call their habitat the Mechanimal World, and it's a charming
world to explore with some crazy creatures to meet, all of whom have very
strong opinions of each other, and some very strange beliefs..."
"The Day The World Broke is loads of fun with some amusing
puzzles, excellent graphics and a range of entertaining and imaginative
characters. All of this contributes toward making this a wonderful game that
offers its own unique explanation for the disappearance of the dinosaurs."
