Countdown is a 2D adventure game where you move your character through the room, attempting to find all of the hidden items in room. There are numerous puzzles to solve and several characters to converse to. During the game there are objects that trigger flashbacks, these are in the form of brief (a few seconds) fmv clips. ~ Aidan Doyle, All Game Guide
