New review - from someone who I think is not a total Adventure Game nut like many of us!

"Captain Disaster turned out to be an incredibly in-depth adventure with a world more vivid than we imagined from first impressions. It is difficult, harking back to a similar era of games, but you’ll find yourself motivated to carry on by the sheer litany of puns and references. If you’re looking for a challenge and a quirky story to boot, this may be worth checking out."

Still not a bad review though.  I know others with reviews in progress have had to ask for hints or consult the walkthrough, maybe the game is more difficult than I realised! :-D

Sorry I've been remiss in keeping this updated...

2 more reviews:

Gameboomers - http://www.gameboomers.com/reviews/Cc/CaptainD/CaptainD.htm - they sort of liked it but it's not really the reviewers preferred style of game, enjoyed it because of (and despite) its silliness.

AdventureGamers - https://adventuregamers.com/articles/view/34350 - they liked aspects of it, but found other parts disappointing.  Most of the criticisms were fair to be honest, but some felt a little harsh!  (Anyway overall they enjoyed it which is the main thing.)

Just to let you know that we posted a very favorable review of Death Has a Million Stomping  Boots on Just Adventure.  Grade:   A-

Really nice review by X-Geeks:

"Captain Disaster in Death Has A Million Stomping Boots is an indie point and click game that utilises classic puzzle gameplay with strong storytelling elements. The result? One heck of a crazy adventure!

For gamers passionate about point and click games, Captain Disaster is a shining example of the genre. The array of unique and interesting puzzles is perfectly blended with quirky humour, pop culture references and skilled storytelling. It’s everything a point and click game should be and more!"

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

The Reticule rated the game as "On Target" and said "As a nod to classic Sierra adventures and celebration of science fiction, D:HBTAMSDCI performs remarkably well. .. As a light-hearted comedy adventure with a few head-scratching puzzles, any fans of Space Quest or Zac McKracken will find plenty here to enjoy."

They define On target as "Above average game, certain aspects or niggles making the game not for everyone but a stand out example of the genre."

A 5-star review of the game posted here on Itch said "If you enjoy retro point and click adventures with funny dialogues and all kind of crazy scfi characters... this is definitely your game. Our hero may look more like the anti-hero himself, but he is bold and determined trying to find his way in chaos to do the right thing. I join the Captain D fanclub! :-D"
