Description

Another game using the graphical adventure interface found in Déjà Vu and Shadowgate, Uninvited comes with a "horror" theme.

While driving on a lonely road at night, a strange figure blocks your vision causing you to swerve and crash your car. When you regain consciousness, you find that your brother is missing (in the NES-Version it's your sister who is missing). The only place he could have gone is a creepy old mansion which looms in front of you. With nowhere else to go, you enter the mansion in search of your brother. It turns out the mansion once belonged to an old wizard and his apprentice, and somehow it has become infested with the Undead.

Trivia

NES version

In the NES version, several references to religion were removed (especially pentagrams). Additionally there are various changes in text and graphics to be less violent. A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com (German).

Orange water

In the flooding bathroom event, the water that exits the faucet, and overflows the bathtub is orange. But when the water fills the bathroom, it becomes blue.
