Summary

A classic adventure game, if nothing more.

The Good

While I disapprove of the text interface (I still think it's annoying, slow and limited (and no, it's not because I'm a slow typer, 100 words per minute ain't slow!)) I have to admit there's something about this game which makes it one of the best adventure games ever made. Is it the sexually compromising remarks? Is it the idiot "censor" sign when you do the wild thang? Nope. It's just that Larry is such a pathetic character you can't help but like him :-)

The graphics are OK, the text parser is as good as they got (which is why I only gave it 3) and the music (when there is any) is OK too.

I liked the VGA version better though.

The Bad

It's really easy, up to a point in which I always get stuck (getting the wine).

Again, the annoying text parser.

The Bottom Line

A really good adventure game you shouldn't miss.
