Description from the packaging.

Twisted villain. Twisted logic. Twisted games.
He has bombs. He has hostages. He has control. Can you stop him?

Blown Away is unlike anything you've ever seen before. It's you face to face with an evil genius. It's you against the ticking clock. It's you facing explosives timed to explode at your first misstep. and it's two dozen of the most insidious, mind blowing games ever invented- all in one explosive package!

  • 24 different challenges and games- more than any other CD-ROM adventure.
  • "In your face" full-screen video.
  • Full stereo, 3-D 360 degree animations and photo-realistic environments.
  • Blown Away allows you to practice and improve on individual games before tackling the entire game.
  • Easy to try- almost impossible to master!

Blown Away takes live action CD-ROM game playing to an entirely new level. To survive, you must master each of the individual time-based challenges found within the various environments. To win, you need careful planning and strong nerves. Practice helps, but continually randomized solutions mean Blown Away is never the same game twice. It helps to be quick, but it pays to be smart.

Blown Away doesn't give you time to sit back and relax. Your enemy is always one step ahead of you. You can't outrun him. You can't overpower him. Only by out-thinking and out-maneuvering him can you move on to the next challenge. And with each success, he's waiting with another, more difficult obstacle. It's a fiendish vendetta that continues until your final face to face meeting.

Meet your enemy. He knows what makes you tick and he's going to push you to the very edge.

Your friends and family are only minutes away from certain disaster. Only one person can save them. So you'd better get busy.

This might look easy, but it's not! And when the villain starts mocking your efforts, your blood pressure will take a drastic leap. Solve the puzzle and you could be the hero. Take too much time and you're history.

Blown Away is full of intricately detailed, photo-realistic environments and is the first CD-ROM to effectively utilize full-screen active video.
