Technically The Colditz Story is a bad example of programming, but manages to be an entertaining fun game. The idea is simple and easy. Escaping Colditz Castle. If it seems easy, think twice, 'cause it ain't. There are several strategic moves to perform and some mini action games interluding. The action mini-games are quite cute, and some are fun to play, others are a bit annoying.
But overall this is an all together fun game.
