Maabus is an action/adventure computer game developed by Canadian studio Microforum International and released by Monolith Productions in 1994.

Gameplay[edit]

The player is in control of a weaponized probe sent to a remote tropical island where strange dangerous radiation has been detected, and must fight giant creatures, solve puzzles and find the source of the radiation.

Reception[edit]

Next Generation reviewed the PC version of the game, rating it one star out of five, and stated that "unless looking at a handful of pretty pictures and dying in countlessly unpredictable ways is your idea of fun, spend your money on something else."[1]

Entertainment Weekly gave the game an A- and described the game as a combination of Myst, Doom, and The 7th Guest. They wrote that the game is as addictive as any of the games it draws inspiration from.[2]
