I just purchased this game direct from DataQue, along with a three-way
GameLink II cable.  I thought I only paid for a two-way cable, so right
away, a good deal!

First you boot the disk (there's also a cart. version) on the host machine.
 Then you unplug the drive from the SIO bus and attach the host end of the
GameLink cable.  Now you attach the other end to a slave machine, and when
you boot that machine it loads the program in from the host machine.  When
the software is up on all machines, you're ready to play.

Basically, each player moves around in a maze attempting to kill each other
with grenades which may be picked up at random locations.  Each player sees
a first-person view on his/her monitor.  Gameplay is very good, but the
graphics aren't spectacular.  Well, the actual moving around in the maze
looks very good, but aspects like grenades, opponents, and explosions
aren't as visually impressive.

My suggestion: buy this game!  It's fun!
