    Totally Zany HO Game  

    Sunny Sunny SunnySunny


    This sure is a LONG game. According to the GAME TIMER, it took me 5 hr 45 min to complete. This did not surprise me really; there’s an awful lot to do and a lot of ground to cover in this crazy HO GAME.

    The evil dude, a once-famous movie director of the black and white era, has kidnapped your mother, his leading lady in his last, unfinished, film. Now he wants to finish his masterpiece. This bad guy is as CREEPY as with his sudden appearances out of nowhere, but also LAUGHABLE at times so it’s hard to take him seriously.

    I’ve never been on a studio lot, but I imagine that it would indeed look a lot like the way this game portrays it. There are sets, behind which is accumulated equipment and paraphernalia, and rips in the canvas revealing that the beautiful sunset is a lie. It certainly allows lots of leeway for VARIED LOCATIONS.

    This is primarily a HO GAME, there are relatively FEW PUZZLES and an obscene number of HO SCENES of the LIST type. There is a fair amount of ADVENTURE GAMEPLAY, and without the JOURNAL & TASK LIST and the INTERACTIVE JUMP MAP, this game would be virtually unplayable, because there is just too much to REMEMBER and heck of a lot of TOING & FROING.

    The GRAPHICS were OKAY. Not good, not awful. The HO SCENES were CLEAR and the HO ITEMS were easily seen. HINT & SKIP were FAST.

    The AMBIENT noise was good, changing to suit the set. The VOICEOVERS were another aspect of this game’s APPEAL. Very well done, with melodrama from him and a sane pleasant voice for us.

    The things I DIDN’T LIKE in this game were the number of ‘EMPTY SCENES’, where one or two actions were all that happened there, and then they were just passageways to get elsewhere.

    Also I found the LOOK OF THE PLACE lacking in any beauty. Although there were many different types of location – car chase, war, tropical village, science fiction – none of them qualified as eye candy.

    The thing I liked most? The humour.

    I Recommend This Game!
