I’m a really big fan of this game; I think most people who enjoy sierra games would also enjoy it. This game stars Willy Beamish a young boy who wants nothing more then to spend his summer playing Nintari (Sounds like a similar early 90’s system we all loved to play) and winning the Nintari gaming championship. Of course things do not go according to Willy’s plans as he becomes swept up into a zany adventure that pits him against the two most powerful figures in town, Leona, the head of the very powerful Toot Sweet Company, and Louis the Leader of the Plumbers Union when they unite to try and bring the entire city under their power. Throw in two loyal friends, a crazy pet frog called horny, a family of ninjas, a talking parrot, a ghost, and a vampire babysitter for good measure and you get a wacky and fun filled Sierra adventure!
This game is your basic mouse point and click type interface similar to many other Sierra On-Line games of the time. The graphics are fun and very cartoony. The storyline is probably where this game is the weakest, not only is it very short, I think I beat the game in one sitting, but there are a lot of aspects of the game I felt were unexplored like whose that crazy nurse? And who are all the kids in detention? The puzzles themselves are usually logical, but can be very tricky to solve. Sometimes you don’t have the wit to complete the task in the allotted time. My advice, SAVE OFTEN!!!
In closing this game is a lot of fun for a one shot quick adventure and any true fan of sierra and/or adventure games. It’s a game that anyone can play ranging from very young to even the oldest loyal Sierra fan. So sit back, grab some Slam Dunk Cola, a Slice of anchovy pizza, and enjoy!
