User summary, some information nicked from Wikipedia
An "experimental puzzle"/2D flick-screen action game, first developped for Amiga, Atari ST, AppleII and MS-DOS.
The protagonist of the game is Lester Knight Chaykin: a young, athletic, red haired physicist. Lester arrives at his high-tech underground laboratory in his Ferrari during a thunderstorm, and continues to work on his experiment using a particle accelerator. Right before the particles reach their intended destination, lightning strikes the lab and interferes with the accelerator causing the unforeseen teleportation of Lester to a barren alien planet.
The player can control Lester using the keyboard or gamepad using four directions buttons and one or two action buttons depending on the platform: one for main actions and running, and one for jumping. Depending on the player's current position, movement, and status, the main action key performs a variety of actions including attacking and interacting with Lester's environment. The player must experiment with the environment, finding out in which order to do what in order to advance through the world."
