Summary

One of the forgotten SCUMM games, but its still one of the best

The Good

Ive always been a big fan of the SCUMM games. It is definitely a great adventure. It takes you all over the world, and to Mars to solve the worlds stupidity problem. There are a few obstacles in the game, you really have to use your head in some instances. There are secrets in the game that are optional

The Bad

If you are playing the Commodore Version of this game, you often have to turn the disk over. And in the Alien Spacecraft, you switch it to the other side and back again. You can get stuck the first few times with problems like insufficient funds, once you kill someone, you cant beat the game.

The Bottom Line

I love this game, any SCUMM worshiper like myself should not forget to play and beat this game.
