The fifth installment of Space Quest is still a blast to play! The Next Mutation has all the elements of a true classic adventure: challenging obstacles to overcome, mind boggling logical puzzles and an entertaining plot. In this episode Roger Wilco must outwit a homicidal female android sent to kill him, solve the mystery of unauthorized trash dumping, then investigate the disappearance of a fellow Starfleet captain and his ship and eventually save the galaxy from destruction. This chapter of the series is icon-driven with a simple interface and breathtaking graphics. Every Space Quest fan should play it as it keeps on getting better!
