Return of the Phantom is the only one of the 3 Microprose adventures I haven’t played yet. It has a giant pipe organ and a throne with a skull on it, which means I have to give it a try at some point!

     

Currently playing:
Recently finished: Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse (R) (4/5) | Detective Di (3.5/5) | Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations (R) (4.5/5) | Heaven’s Vault (3/5) | Ace Attorney: Justice For All (R) (3.5/5) | Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (R) (4.5/5) | Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space (R) (4.5/5) | The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker (abandoned) (2/5) | Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (3.5/5) | The Sexy Brutale (R) (4/5)

I liked the Microprose adventure games. Unfortunately I don’t like Phantom in any of its incarnations so this was fairly boring for me, but it’s still a good game.

The women’s screams in this game used to scared the crap out of me when I was a kid.

     

I’m on a whole new adventure.

Short, sweet and incredibly atmospheric. My favorite of the Microprose games. Only part that kind of sucked was the maze in the catacombs.

I loved the Phantom but still think its easily the worst Microprose one.  It doesn’t really do anything interesting with the premise - if it was done either as more of an effective mystery, or delved more deeply into the characters/psychology, it might have worked, but it always felt a bit flat.

A Kickstarted Rex Nebular 2 would be more my thing.
