Review excerpt from Zero Magazine (1989)
"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." Overall score: 75
