The Press Says

One of the first games by George Lucas' then-"new" game company, this game put you in control of a few kids as they investigated a creepy mansion. Actually, the mansion wasn't that creepy, since this game was (apparently) geared to a much younger audience. Well, at least the mansion didn't include Ewoks! The secrets discovered in the house were often quite inspired, including an amusing walking tentacle creature, consisting of a single tentacle, and nothing else. What does this tentacle creature want most of all? To start a rock band...What else?
