Looking for an old adventure game [B-7]

Post by harry66. »

I am looking for an old scifi adventure game. I recall it as being named 'B7' or 'D7', and I only had the shareware version.
The goal was to escape from a spaceship and I remember taking the following steps:

Cause a fire in your cell to get the guards to extinguish it. After that they would let the door open to let the smoke out and post a guard next to your door.
You have to wait until the guard is looking away from you and strangle him from the back. (with a electrical wire or garden hose I think)
After escaping from your cell you'll get in a hallway, with each door having some kind of electrical lock. I could open one by unscrewing it and solving some kind of puzzle.
I escaped the space ship and after that I got an advertisement for the full version of the game, taking place at a new planet.


Does anyone recognize the explanation of the game? I would really like to know which game it was!

(btw, there is an action game called 'b7' based on Blake's 7 tv series, that is not the one I'm looking for)

Beneath a Steel Sky maybe?

Nope. Thanks for the suggestion though, it would have matched my description pretty well.

The graphics in the game were a bit simpler.
I recall going through other rooms (of the guards) picking up stuff I needed to escape. (getting it from drawers and cabinets). Probably also finding some other prisoners that didn't survive...

I think it was a point and click game, you didn't need to type the commands.

No, but thank you for the suggestion.
The game I'm looking for is older and it has 2d graphics.

The description reminds me of a game I think is called Escape, but it wasn't set on a spaceship. It was just a gaol...
You did have to start a fire and then strangle your guard to get out though.
Could be it?

Thanks for the suggestion. If you mean this game:

That's not it. 'Escape' seems more like a platform game to me, but what I'm looking for is a point and click adventure game for sure.

I think I recall something from the end of the shareware version (just before the ad promoting the full version)
You have escaped from the spaceship and you are on a bare planet, I think most of it is red/orange dirt.
You are near a cliff and on the other side is something blinking, probably a ring.
Just before or just after you're able to get the ring the shareware version stops.


I really hope that I'm not mixing in details from other games I played, but I'm not fully sure about this last detail.

I am still searching for this game, so I thought it might be useful to give a summary of what I know so far:

It's a point-and-click adventure game.
The platform is probably MS-DOS, I played the shareware version.
The graphics were 2d and had not a lot of details. I played it around 2000, but I think it was created earlier.
The name I can recall is 'b7', but I cannot find the game by it's name. It's not the action game based on the Blake's 7 series.

The goal of the shareware version of the game is to escape from a spaceship.

These are the in-game details I can recall:

You have to cause a fire in your cell to get the guards to extinguish it. After that they would let the door open to let the smoke out and post a guard next to your door.
You have to wait until the guard is looking away from you and strangle him from the back. (with an electrical wire or garden hose I think)
After escaping from your cell you'll get in a hallway, with each door having some kind of electrical lock. You could open one by unscrewing it and solving some kind of puzzle.

What year was it released in, approximately? Maybe it's somewhere on this list at MobyGames...
