The Adventures of Melvin Freebush (DOS)

The Adventures of Melvin Freebush Screenshots

DOS version

Title screen
You are thrown out of town

The arrow keys move Melvin around. As soon as a keyboard key is pressed a box opens up ready for command input
There is in-game help available but it does not say a great deal that the player does not already know
