Maniac Mansion, now 42% cartoonier.

This version of the game is completely different (and inferior) to the American NES port developed by Lucasfilm Games themselves, featuring greatly simplified rooms, no in-game music, and passwords that have absolutely no right to be as long as they are (something which even the developers were aware of; see below).

Sound Test


Enter the password よいおときき たいなあ (yoi oto kikitai naa), which translates to "I wanna hear something good."

Hidden Messages

Entering these passwords will display special messages...and hang the game up. The passwords cannot be translated without adding iteration marks.
