Description

A dastardly alien is stealing all of the children's Halloween candy! Tony Tough P.I. will not stand for this. He sets out to stop the fiend before it's to late, and the alien takes over the world! Tony Tough is a traditional 2D "point and click" adventure with a crazy story. The humor and style are reminiscent of old LucasArts games, like Day of the Tentacle.

Tony Tough and the Night of Roasted Moths Windows If you're feeling nostalgic, "sepia" mode makes the game look sort of like an old movie.

Trivia

Prograph completed Tony Tough in November 1999 but couldn't a publisher until 2002. The game suffers from frequent lock-ups and freezes because it was not tested on the newest computers. For that reason, many people suggest playing the game on older computers to avoid the problems.

As of Oct. 2003, there has not been a patch released to correct the glitches.
