Similar to Access' early Tex Murphy adventures, Countdown has an incredible amount of pixel-hunt puzzles and several pointless arcade sequences. The plot of this game is quite interesting, though they might have borrowed it from Asylum, a Commodore 64 classic. You are an amnesiac trying to escape the asylum and find your true identity. Overall, a fun game that's been overlooked by many people, despite frustrating puzzles, the time limit, and some downright bad dialogues.
