Heaven & Earth is a computer game developed by Buena Vista Software in 1992.

Plot[edit]

Heaven & Earth is an integrated triad of toy, puzzle, and game all based on a single fantasy legend. With the animated cards in a solitaire-like game, the player tries to score tricks of the highest value, working against a random draw. There are also a dozen options for puzzles to manipulate, from sliders and mazes to 3-D illusions. The "toy" aspect of the game involves picking off gems with a swinging pendulum.[1]

Reception[edit]

Computer Gaming World stated "it's refreshing to come across a little gem like Heaven & Earth, which isn't quite like anything else out there". The magazine concluded that it "is a terrific game for people who like puzzles, especially visual ones".[2] The game was reviewed in 1994 in Dragon #211 by Jay & Dee in the "Eye of the Monitor" column. Jay gave the game 4 out of 5 stars, while Dee gave the game 3½ stars.[1]
