Rick Swan reviewed Dark Horizon: Escape for Dragon #239 (September 1997), calling it a "clever science-fiction board game" and comments that "Though the game utilizes deceptively sophisticated tactics, what makes it a pleasure to the play are the components: five sheets of thick cardboard room tiles, ten status logs that can be used with an erasable felt tip pen (included), ten metal miniatures."
