This game is notable, not only for its dramatic storytelling and early survival-horror roots, but also for being one of the most NintendoHard games to come down the pike since ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}''. The slightest misstep meant death in any number of horribly unspeakable ways. The console versions of the game -- such as the UsefulNotes/{{SNES}} port -- were made more difficult than the [[IBMPersonalComputer MS-DOS]]/{{Macintosh}} versions (which ''themselves'' were more difficult than the original UsefulNotes/{{Amiga}} version), reportedly to give players "more value for their money". (Although it may give some players a strong desire to throw their keyboard/joypad at their TV.)

The story itself concerns a hapless, adventurous and athletic young physicist named Lester Knight Chaykin, whose particle accelerator experiment [[LightningCanDoAnything gets zapped by lightning]] one evening, sending him to a hostile alien world. There, Lester gets captured by an advanced race of huge warlike humanoids, who send him to an underground prison colony. With the help of a fellow prisoner, Lester breaks out. He then spends the rest of the game trying to evade recapture and death at the hands of...well... pretty much [[EverythingTryingToKillYou everything on the planet]].
