Maniac Mansion

Remember LucasFilm Games’ Maniac Mansion game? The neat-o big-head cartoony graphics, unique storytelling, and creative puzzles? Well, now you can download Maniac Mansion Deluxe and The New Adventures of Zak McKracken and relive all the fun thanks to a group of dedicated fans and the AGS game engine.

I remember playing these games but don’t remember a whole lot about them… nevertheless, looks like some fun to me. Throwback games will always be cool, as far as I’m concerned.

There happens to be a copy of the original "Maniac Mansion" (based on the TV series, which aired on The Family Channel) located in my archive of NES games. Looks like I'll be playing this game again!

I ran into this game at a swap meet recently. I decided to buy Jackal and Mike Tyson's Punch Out instead.
