Looks like it should and loaded well on Steam. All puzzles that require user to input digits for code are broken and always dial correctly, despite finding the code or not. Police won't show up more than once for some reason. Cut scenes that need to trigger more than once won't. Basically this game is puzzle based and all the puzzles are broken. Very disappointed.

Chainsaw in the kitchen, glowing swimming pool, weird noises from the house, and what is that red paste around the fridge? Some of the things you will wonder while exploring the house of Weird Ed Edison and his family, on your quest to rescue your girlfriend. Also make sure to check out its sequel.

My First Gaming Love

Bob Le Kewl

I fell in love with this game when I played it for countless hours on the C64 & gave fallen in love with it all over again, This was the first real game I wanted to truely beat. Its quirky characters, humourous story & at times innfuriating puzzles, just makes this a classic. The controls on PC can be a bit clunky, but hey what can one expect from a game which is over 30 years old!! But I love it. If you played this as a kid grab this & the Day of the Tenticle. Both are a hoot to play. Even if you just get this game to just empty the pool & blow up the house, so worth it!
