Description of the original, from

“Gadget puts you in a strange surreal world where a comet appears to be heading for the earth. Most people dismiss this situation since apparently it won't collide with us, however a group of scientists scramble to develop a way to stop this comet. Whether they want to destroy it, divert it, or whatever is unknown however, and you are charged with the task to find out what really is going on.

The game is viewed from a first person perspective and progresses as an adventure game, where the emphasis is to explore and discover rather than solve puzzles (this seems to be the Japanese concept of an adventure game) so ultimately it is not so much of a game as it is more an interactive ‘tour de force.’”

An iOS version of Gadget: Past as Future was released in 2011, but is no longer available.

Oddly enough these items were uploaded earlier under section 'Manual' but didn't show when page was saved. The links was available in edit mode though. Some bug? There will only be one manual the envelope says…

If there is more than one manual available in the Edit mode, I do a right-click onto the 2nd+ file to get its downloadable link. In the second step, I add the link to the description field.

Some examples where this has been done are:
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
PONS Spanisch im Spiel
Berlitz Spanisch

Thanks for uploading to the internal server ! Smile
Please do not forget to upload also the scans of the "packaging/manual and Synergy catalog". We want to archive them, too !

I just re-uploaded this one. They are the same files that MCP originally provided, but now repackaged.

links seem to be missing; was it taken down or am I missing something?

I got my hands on the real thing, so here it is in all its glory. Scans of the package and manual are included in the first disc's archive.
