Let's Play Citadel!

This is something I'm doing for another forum, but I'm sure there are people here who will appreciate it. Remember Citadel? Did you ever manage to get through it? If not, see what you were missing!

Re: Repton: The Lost Realms to be released at R3PLAY

Having been one of the testers on this game, I can say that anybody who likes the Repton games will love this new game. The new elements add to the experience to provide some excellent puzzles, and the graphics are nicely atmospheric.
