Maniac Mansion Nintendo

I'm a big fan of point and click games and Maniac Mansion for the NES is a classic game that many people should get or play on the website. The storyline starts off with the main character, Dave who's girlfriend, Sandy has been kidnapped by a mad scientist named Weird Ed Edison. Who you later find out is actually being controlled by a purple meteor. You also get to meet Weird Ed's family which includes his son Fred, his wife Nurse Edna, and his dead cousin Ted. And his tentacles, Green Tentacle, a tentacle who wants his band to be famous and Purple Tentacle, a guard for Weird Ed. You the player must navigate Dave and his two other friends to rescue Sandy from getting her brains sucked out by Weird Ed. Maniac Mansion lets you choose a bunch of characters from a rocker named Sandy from a surfer named Jeff to a nerd named Bernard. Each character has pros and cons with them. But the best character to choose at the begging of the game is Bernard, since he has the best skills. The game has multiple endings, from you making the metor famous, getting Alien Police to steal the meter, or having the metor fly in space with a car. Another great part is you can kill your friends in the game, by drowning them, having them go into the metor's room without a hazmat suit, or cooking the hamster in the microwave and then giving it to Fred. Maniac Mansion has decent sound and decent graphics, they're not the best, but not the worst. If you're a fan of point and click games, Maniac Mansion is a get.
