Maniac Mansion is one of the most famous point and click adventure games developed by Lucasfilm Games and designed by Ron Gilbert (who later created Monkey Island) and Gary Winnick. The story is a blend of old sci-fi and horror B movie. You can choose between many characters, each one with a peculiar ability useful to solve some of the puzzles. Maniac Mansion was also the first game to use the popular SCUMM interface.

Maniac Mansion reviews

"Maniac Mansion is a Lucasfilm game, in the vein of Zak McKracken, and owes a lot to the Sierra On-Line style. But it's a lot better executed than Sierra games, with speedy sprites and good use of your micro's memory to store screens, rather than loading them from disk every time." - Zero Magazine (1989) - Overall score: 75

    No, Maniac Mansion is WAY better than "Zak McKracken". I think you just like to lack and use the word "lack" like a gen z'er that doesn't know better or what to say. Maniac Mansion was the best, hands down. Still is!!!

    A great game, a classic! Day of the Tentacle wasn't the same thing, too easy.

    As a huge fan of Zak McKracken, I like Maniac Mansion too, but I find it less... enjoyable. Zak has something that Maniac Mansion lacks...
Say something about Maniac Mansion! Did you play it? Do you feel nostalgic about the good old days? Did you like it or hate it? Do you have trouble running this game? Don't be afraid to ask for help (please, read the guide first). And don't forget to be polite.
