By the fans for the most loyal fans!
Maniac Mansion Deluxe is a remake of the original Lucas Arts adventure game, Maniac Mansion a staple of the weirdness, the beauty and the power of classic adventure gaming. So, if you are not stapled in the multi choice set of controls that used loads of verbs to tell the computer what to do next, and yet you still want to see what all the fuss was all about with this game, then this remake has definitely got to be it! It's reduced the complexity of the controls, it has made the game look much better, with higher resolution background and better animations and yet it has managed to stay true to the original, not only in the overall build, but actually in terms of details, in terms of how the puzzles and the story evolves and the other ides that made the original a unique adventure game. The story is simple, but it evolves really nicely; you have to explore this mansion, and the more you know, the more a sort of a bleak story (with funny under and overtones, more like a pastiche, like a spoof!) emerges, that makes fun of scary movie tropes and even games of this sort, of the 80s. It's a really great game, and the love of the developers shows through every seam and crease, and if you lived in the 80s, the pop references will really pop out and put a smile on your face!
