From the back cover:

    MAY THE FARCE BE WITH YOU!



    Get ready for a trek through time with everybody's favorite intergalactic sanitation engineer and freelance hero, Roger Wilco. In their latest spaced-out space opera, the Two Guys From Andromeda take on science fiction (and just about everything else!) in a spoofy sendup that will leave you laughing.

    Roger Wilco embarks on a topsy-turvy trip through space and time in this fourth chapter in the award-winning Space Quest series, Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers. From a nostalgic look at his past in Space Quest I to a terrifying visit to the future of Space Quest XII, Roger's on the run again.

    And hot on his ion trail are the Sequel Police, deadly crosstime assassins who are out to put an end to Roger and all this Space Quest nonsense once and for all.

    Once again it's up to Roger Wilco to save the future - or is that the past? - of the Space Quest series, and keep the universe safe for fair play, bad jokes, and lots more Space Quest games.

    NEW FEATURES:

    • Hand painted, futuristic color graphics.
    • The most realistic animation you've ever seen in an adventure game.
    • No typed-in commands - point and click to perform game actions.
    • Scrolling screens - the first ever in a Sierra adventure.
    • Another terrific rock 'n roll soundtrack, with even more realistic sound effects.

    "We're talking truly zany here." -Nibble Magazine-

    The Two Guys From Andromeda, frequently mistaken for Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy, are the award-winning designers of three previous games featuring the intrepid broom-jockey Roger Wilco. To their many fans who have been constantly clamoring for a fourth Space Quest adventure they would just like to say: "Here! Now shut up, already!"
