CD-ROM Review: 'The Groove Thing'

This digital kaleidoscope, an explosion of color and schematic mayhem, could be the wildest visual exploration you'll ever have sober. You control the size, shape, and color of geometric designs unfurling in double time on your screen. A click of the mouse turns hyperkinetic circles into broad ribbons, brings a wash of new colors, or changes the throbbing dance music to a mellow chant. Like its psychedelic precursors, the disc has only one point: escapist fun. And it won't kill any brain cells. B+
