Total Eclipse – ZX Spectrum

A day late, I know!

I thought I would show you a game on the ZX Spectrum that was relevant to the solar eclipse we had yesterday (20th March 2015) in northern Europe. Total Eclipse was released on the Incentice Software Ltd label in 1989.

Inside the box was a competition to “Win a trip to see a real total eclipse in Hawaii!!”. Sadly, this was for the eclipse back in July 1991. I think its to late to enter….

The blurb on the back of the box has this to say about this game.

An ancient curse, an imminent eclipse, giant pyramids, secret panels, a hidden shrine, poison darts, pressure pads, treasure chests, trip wires and mysterious mummies, an in glorious FREESCAPE Solid 3D. Set under the burning sun, Total Eclipse is the biggest and greatest freescare experience yet!
