1.                                Introduction

===============================================================================


Space Quest V starts with Wilco taking a test at the Star Confederacy Space
Academy to become a captain of a ship. After the test, Wilco explores the
academy, and then returns to find that he's passed the test with a maximum
score. Due to the high marks, StarCon awards him with his very own ship: The
Eureka. The main part of the game is based on the ship, with Wilco travelling
between planets and completing various challenges. A meeting with an android
known as WD40, a transformation into a fly, and an encounter with the dangerous
Pukoids are only some of the adventures Wilco has to face.

The graphics have had a noticeable upgrade from Space Quest IV. Colours are now
more clear and the surroundings look a lot more detailed. Although there is no
speech (as there was in the CD version of Space Quest IV), what sound there is
is very good. The level of difficulty has been decreased from Space Quest IV,
where some sections got to the point of being almost annoying (the Skate-O-Rama
section springs to mind). With Space Quest V, the game plays very well, and
puzzles seem to be set at just the right difficulty: Not too easy but difficult
enough so that it's hard to figure out straight away. Overall, Space Quest V is
one of the best games in the series.
