Among these titles is Maniac Mansion—a classic adventure game from the days when the PC XT rules the world. The game has even inspired a television series by the same name.

Thank you for such an informative site. Maniac Mansion brings back fond memories of the C64. I would love to get hold of a copy of Maniac Mansion to play on my PC. I have been to the C64 site (with the Top 50 games), this is where i first saw Maniac Mansion listed, but had trouble downloading it onto a disk. Your web page mentioned an updated cd version....where can i get this it available in general computer stores? Thanks for your help and a HUGE thank you for such a wonderfully informative site, its people like yourselves that keep these computer games alive.

Hey! This is the first time that I have been to your site. Pretty cool! Found out about it by wanting to see if there were any news on "Maniac Mansion". I didn't know that there was a sequel. I wish that there would be a revival for PS2, Gamecube, or Xbox. I think I'll start a campaign to write in to request a return. Well it was fun. Bye.

Hi there!

Just started reading your "Maniac Mansion" Review...
You wrote "in the days when PC XT ruled the world" (or something likewise) WRONG!

A PC XT was then the crappiest machine you could own! A must be were those Commodore machines: Everybody had a C64 and wanted to have an Amiga. These were machines that had a certain spirit, but nowdays when Apple and PC are nearly the same you are appologized if you don't remeber.

A fan of the old times
