    SPACE QUEST . . . to boldly go where no man has swept the floor!

    CAPTAIN'S LOG: SATURDAY 01:14:07 p.m.: A super-secret Star Generator has just been tested successfully. Your crew has been celebrating. Your planet will soon have the new sun it desperately needs to keep its eco-systems alive. Your ship, the Arcade Research Lab is currently heading home to announce the good news.

    MONDAY 08:46:22 a.m.: An army of Sarien warriors, those nasty, trigger-happy space pirates from the Lower East Side, are hot on your ship's tail! Their evil scheme . . to capture the Star Generator and use its secrets to take over the galaxy.

    The Unforseeable Future: It's up to you! You become the sanitation engineer turned swashbuckling hero in this 3-D animated adventure game. You will pilot ships, float in space, battle fierce aliens, and perhaps even make time to catch the headlining band at the Deronian Rock Palace.

    Space Quest features:
    • Incredible 3-D graphics! Move behind, in front of, and into objects
    • Pop-up text windows for easier reading. No more calluses on your return key finger
    • Multiple solutions and variable scoring. There's more than one way to skin a short-haired hypogiopus
    • Full sentence input and optional joystick control

    POLICE QUEST

    Experience what it's really like to be a cop!
    Forget the mindless garbage you've seen on television. A police officer's job consists of more than high speed chases and "Dirty Harry" shootouts. Drug traffic, homicide and violence provide the backdrop for their everyday existence. It's a grueling, thankless career of unending responsibility and unexpected jeopardy.

    Police Quest takes place in Lytton, a small town with a growing problem. A major criminal, dubbed by the press as "Death Angel", is creating havoc in the community: Drug trafficking, robbery and murder have made the streets unsafe, and the crime wave is escalating.

    In Police Quest, you take on the role of a street cop in uniform. You'll deal with the routine of police life, handing out tickets, attending briefings and even discovering your best efforts tangled in the red tape of the judicial system. If you make a good cop, you may be asked to "go undercover" in an assignment to infiltrate the "Death Angel's" gang and bring the racketeer to justice.

    Features:
  • Over one hundred city streets and four highways provide the landscape for hot leads and high speed pursuits.
  • A realistic crime computer provides access to vital information on suspects.
  • An authentic map of Lytton helps you keep track of where you are and where you need to get to.
  • Incredible 3-D graphics! Move behind, in front of, and around objects.
  • Full sentence input and optional joystick control.
  • Pop-up text windows for easier reading.
  • Multiple solutions and valuable scoring. Play Police Quest over and over again, and try to top your previous performance.

Leisure Suit LARRY

Looking for a good time?
Meet Larry. He's just turned 40 and he's still single. If you get past the glow of his Grecian formula, you can see his hairline beginning to make a hasty retreat from his forehead. Larry's leisure suit is of the highest quality (100% manmade material, permanent press too!). He wears at least 11 gold chains and his freshly-capped teeth could blind you in a bright light. Down at the singles bar he tell the chicks, "Sure, I'm single . . . I got in a fight with m ol' lady and she threw me out." He doesn't tell them the "ol' lady" was his mom, or that he was 38 at the time.

Yeah, Larry's a yerk. He's the original blind date nightmare. The kind of guy you woudln't want your daughter to date, let alone meet. Become the loveable nerd Larry for one fabulous night. You'll dance. You'll drink. You'll gamble. And, if you play your cards right, you might even meet the girl (or girls) of your dreams. Leisure Suit Larry is a humorous, harmless endeavour for adults. The object of the game is to help Larry overcome his jerkisms and lose his "you-know-what". It's a silly, risque romp through the singles scene and a challenging adventure game that will test your street smarts and suave sophistication. So, slip into your leisure suit and venture out into "the land of the lounge lizards". We guarantee it'll be a night you will never forget.
