A well adaptation of the movie

The Good

The game follows the movie very well. It clearly shows the climax of the movie in this game.

The graphics of the game are great (if you choose VGA or MC-GA 256 colors in the configuration. The Tandy and EGA 16 color graphics are not very good). Kevin, the Wet Bandits, the cutscenes, and the house are all well detailed.

The music and sound effects are good. While you may not hear the theme song or any other music in the movie the music is good. The sound effects are decent.

There are also many variations on how the game can be played. You can set one trap in one room and when you play the game again you can set it in another.

There's also humor in the game when you lure the Wet Bandits into traps.

The Bad

The controls could have been better (typical of old computer games). However, I have listed the controls in the Tips and Tricks section.

The Bottom Line

If you like Home Alone, this game is for you!
