This works fine, although it takes a while to get going. Refreshing the page seemed to do the trick for me.

"Pretty average" just about sums up AMBER. It's worth experiencing, but not worth paying collector's item prices to get hold of. Disappointed at the lack of a scare factor, as I was in the mood for...

I know who Mata Hari was historically, but never heard of the game.

Just to make clear, although both games came out under the Phantasmagoria "umbrella title", they are completely unrelated. Don't think of A Puzzle of Flesh as a second instalment.
