Passengers on the Wind II
Passengers on the Wind II allows players to decide the fate of the heroes
and direct all of them so that they reach their aim. Players will discover
many locations, directions, and events; and will live different stories
according to the directions that he makes the characters take. Everything is
controlled using either the keyboard or the joystick.
Players are both the director and the heroes. The screen is divided into three
main elements: a graphical section where the action takes place; a section
showing the character players are directing; and the section containing text,
from which players decide the action.
The player can take several actions during the game: saving a game, viewing
flashbacks (in slow or fast motion), or intervention on the central graphic
screen to make the action develop.
The game is split into seven episodes which players have to gradually make
their way through. In each, a main scene is displayed in the graphical
section, and by simple confirmation players can make the characters appear.
To avoid restarting the game at the beginning each time, players are given an
opportunity to save the situation in progress. In this case, a blank,
formatted disk is required to save these situations.
