Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders review
ACE (1989): "Superlative presentation on-screen, with the game-detail of an ICOM adventure combined with the animation of an arcade game. All versions equally impressive, with the usual exception of IBM CGA."
Computer Gaming World (1988): "If it is not too bold, one could ask that Lucasfilm take this criticism to heart. No malice is intended. Zak Mc- Kracken and the Alien Mindbenders is basically a good game. It simply could have been better. Therefore, here is my shopping list for the next Lucasfilm adventure game. First, until you have unlimited space to work with, pick one location and stick to it. Second, take your time. If you don't have any good ideas for puzzles, wait until you do. Third, go through your games and scrap everything that's tedious and unimaginative. Fourth, get better music and more of it. Maniac Mansion was a hard act to follow, but I'll bet you can still design a better one."
A DOS version with enhanced graphics was also released.
The GOG.com release marked the first time the 256-color version of the game had been made officially available outside Japan.Search on eBay
