Guides on emulating older games

From Wikipedia:

The game follows a trio of space marines who fought in an interstellar war: Casey (the player), Ari and Zack. The game opens, and the story begins, just as Casey has been brought back to life by his partners. After being in a horrible space accident, Casey's body was all but destroyed, and he is now only a brain grafted in a life-support system on their spaceship. The player can interact with the world through a small remote controlled flying probe, which is launched from the ship shortly after the start of the game. In this new form, Casey possesses limited ability to interact with his environment, his only way to communicate being through a yes/no interface and by emitting light pulses. Upon awakening, Casey finds out that the war is over and that Ari and Zack have become pirates, stealing salvage from the war to survive. During a salvage mission, the trio crash into and are stranded on a derelict alien spacecraft, which is on a collision course with a star. It is up to Casey to help his partners and explore the mystery of the Daedalus spaceship.

In order to save themselves, the trio must explore the huge alien ship and solve a large number of Myst-like puzzles, such as connecting colored laser-beams with mirrors, playing an advanced form of connect-the-dots with a computer interface, and one combat sequence, battling aliens called Krin. The puzzles are mixed with acting sequences from Carrere and Bocher, whose interaction with the player creates some light-hearted comedy.

Ha! That's totally cool. My dad did the packaging for this game back in the '90s. Although I had no clue they also released it for Macintosh. We didn't have a CD-ROM drive then, so I didn't care. Ha. "We." How bizarre to think that whole families used one computer then. How bratty we are now. Anyway, you guys are right on with the sucky gameplay. I think it was just made for the chance to see Tia Carrere in something else besides Wayne's World. She's still got it, though. Yow!

I read about this in the Macintosh Bible Guide to Games and am going to give it a spin. Ironic that they knew that the FMV was a false promise, yet that didn't stop them from giving Daedalus Encounter a nice review.

this is one of those games that had so much video on it, that there was very little gameplay, part of the 'multimedia revolution' that never went anywhere. You would expect to see it on the Mega CD.

i gotta say i never found this one that fun
