Description

Amateur made, shareware imitation of Monkey Island 2 / Simon the Sorceror. But don't let that put you off - this is a quality game in its own right. You are adventurer Paul Cole, the year is 1948, and you have been lowered down a pit to investigate a the discovery of a corpse. Then you find you cannot get out. The rest is up to you!

The main difference between this and another LucasArts' SCUMM engine game is the lack of obvious humor. It seems to take itself very seriously.

Trivia

References

  • The hero looks suspiciously like Guybrush Threepwood from Monkey Island 2 - and the game even begins with him hanging from a rope.
  • In the village (next to the police officer) there is a statue of a monster from DOOM, left-click on it, watch Paul Cole draw a shotgun and see what happens.
  • The game features cameo roles by Saddam Hussein (in the plane), Bill Gates (crucified, in the village). and Admiral Thrawn from Star Wars (in the fun house).
  • The fortune teller is this game is called Jojo. Her brother is Mojo from Monkey Island.
  • There is a parrot by the temple who references the parrot scene in Tikal from Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.
  • There is a radioactive pool with a warning sign, complete with a "reactor" once it's drained. Paul even comments that it reminds him of some other game.... we know it's Maniac Mansion.
  • There are major visual callbacks to Simon the Sorcerer, including non-story animated animals and even a worm-eaten tree trunk that looks like the woodworm.
  • An unusually artistic scene with a hill overlook and expansive night sky, with a thornbush and heart, seems to reference Loom.
  • When you turn on the computer in the temple, the screen displays the view from an X-Wings cockpit.
