This game is not your usual adventure. The flow of text is much more like a book with the player only being asked to alter the course of events via a choice between one of three options. The fourth option, so easy to forget, displays a help menu which includes a service you would be wise to make use of early on: simply typing in the name of a character from the diary will bring up onto the screen a fact-file on that character in true Star Trek computer style. Features such as this, plus options such as RESTART and DEMO, really give this game a classy feel.

THE SECRET DIARY OF ADRIAN MOLE von LEVEL 9 ist ein „etwas anderes“ Adventure: Es hat nicht allzuviel Rätsel zu lösen, die Texteingabe ist beschränkt, die Grafiken nicht zahlreich und von der Darstellung nicht immer glanzvoll. Doch: Auch Adventures wie TERRORMOLINOS, die mehr auf Text-Information und lustige (Begleit-) Kommentare ihr Hauptaugenmerk legten, haben ihre Reize!
Le journal intime d'un anglais de 13 ans 3/4 coincé entre une mère hystérique et son petit ami ventripotent et un père négligeant et sa rousse pulpeuse. Divorcés. Beaucoup de texte. Rigolo.

It's disappointing that Level 9 has not been allowed to produce a real adventure. What carries the game through is the book text itself, irreverent and rude. Without that the game would not stand much of a chance
