Description

Seventeen years after the initial release of the classic LucasArts adventure Maniac Mansion, the game has been revamped for modern systems in a 256-colour freeware remake by fans. Aside from the crisp graphics, they improved the SCUMM-interface itself and it now features digital sound effects and continuous background music, designed with the Adventure Game Studio engine. Although it is a complete remake built from scratch, the designers kept the gameplay, story and the many gags from the original game intact.

Screenshots

Maniac Mansion Deluxe Windows The number of commands has been reduced without any loss and a very important one has been added - "Look at"! The comments aren't usually very interesting, but this one completes an Easter egg.
Maniac Mansion Deluxe Windows The bottom. Now the kid who goes down can take the items very quickly and climb out in one phase, so it's even not impossible to close back the valve before Dr. Fred notices that the pool was empty.
Maniac Mansion Deluxe Windows This room is dark by itself and not much improved, so I made a screenshot of Michael searching for the red light lamp with his flashlight.
Maniac Mansion Deluxe Windows A familiar sight, but with remarkable graphics!
