Summary

Funny, punny text adventure

The Good

This funny and mind boggling text adventure combines several types of word play into an exciting game. In this game you will have to make mountains out of mole hills, shake a tower (or is that take a shower), and act in a 50's sitcom.

This is truly a remarkable game. Not as well known as other Infocom games, it is still one of the best written ones.

The Bad

Either you get into the groove of the game or you don't. The final stage is disappointing and some of the earlier puzzles are stumpers.

The Bottom Line

Hilarious , tongue in cheek word play game. A fine example of a type of game they don't make anymore.
