Meteor Mess - A Maniac Mansion Remake

 

 

Download Demo (English and German language)

Website

Although this demo just includes about half the rooms of the full game, there's really a lot
of things you can do. This "walkthrough" should help you to see the most important things.

By pressing c you can switch off the main power of the house any time (just a feature for this demo).
So you can take a look how every single room looks like with power on and off without having to use the
circuit breakers (and meet Purple Tentacle).

 

Ok ... let's begin.

The story is a parody of horror B-movies. You control teenager Dave Miller and two of his friends. You are on a mission to rescue Dave's girlfriend, Sandy, who has been kidnapped to the mansion of Dr.Fred, a mad scientist.

Dr.Fred is under the influence of a purple evil meteor which landed near his mansion twenty years ago and has controlled his life ever since. Dr.Fred now wants to dominate the world, and, for some unclear reason, needs the fresh brains of teenagers to do this.

It is up to you to infiltrate his mansion, avoid getting caught by Dr.Fred's family, gain entrance to the secret lab and save Sandy!

First of all start a new game and choose Syd and Bernard as playable characters.
