The most fun you can have with your pants off. Er, no wait...

The Good
Selectable "naughtiness" level ranging from tame (for the innocent) to lewd (for the innocent when nobody's watching them). The puzzles, in true Infocom style, vary in difficulty enough to keep you at it (playability is very high). And hey, there's something for everyone -- you determine the gender of your character at the beginning, and the (ahem) descriptions of certain activities vary accordingly.

The Bad
The underground maze. If you've played the game, you know the one I mean. It seems more of an annoyance once you figure out what you're supposed to do; doing it throughout the maze got tiresome.

The Bottom Line
An all-around fun game to play. Be prepared for some unexpected puzzles and some bawdy situations.

Pulp-Science Fiction Adult Game + Superheroes & Mad Scientist's.

The Good
Written by Infocom Author Steve Meretsky who also wrote Bureaucracy, and Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy with Douglas Adams, and Sci-fi Planetfall and Stationfall.

Pulp-Science Fiction Type Adult Game, with Superheroes and Mad Scientist's. Three modes available: "Lewd", "Suggestive" and "Tame". You start the game in Joe's Bar in Upper Sandusky, Ohio - 1936. You have to choose your gender by either going in the Male or Female toilet. Phobos is a Moon of Mars where said Goddess lives with plan to take over the universe!

There are about 10 different 'worlds' to visit connected together by black circular teleport discs.

Feature of the game include: Example Transcript "game": where you play a 'Jock' Space Hero on an Asteroid. used to teach players how to play Interactive Fiction if new to it. A Harem Cleveland Being 'brain swapped' with a Gorilla Classic Infocom Goodies with game packaging: 3D Glasses (one lense Blue, the other Red), Map of Catacombs under Harem, 7 Smell Scratch and Sniff Card - smells includes: Perfume and Pizza. Smell Card developed for Infocom by an outside company. Plus Cartoon Strip Sci Fi Superhero Magazine: "The Adventures of Lane Mastodon".

The Bad
Some of the puzzles were too difficult. Forcing me to get the invisi-clue hints that ruin the game because once you start you can't stop.

The Bottom Line*
Released in 1986. One of the first 'Adult' [non-strip poker] computer games ever. May pre-date 'Leisure Suit Larry'.

Has 75 Rooms, and 41 Objects ; recognises 978 Words ; and uses 13763 Op-codes to implement. You much remember this game was designed for a 300 kbyte 80'286 disk AFTER 'zipping' up the data.

Bawdy fun for all!

The Good
Another milestone for Infocom, their first Sexy adventure! Steve M's humor and clever puzzles push this one to the top. Especially interesting is his brilliant device for establishing your sex (via which Bathroom you choose!) and having a character die yet mysteriously survive again and again (shades of old Flash Gordon serials).

The Bad
Not much, but others may be put off by the sexual inuendo.

The Bottom Line
Tremendous fun with a text parser!
