    Invoking classic adventure games of old, Fester Mudd is both a homage to those greats and its own master in demonstrating what's so memorable about the genre.

    Fester Mudd is a funny game with smartly designed puzzles. You don't have to be a point-and-click nostalgist to love this game.

    If someone told me that Fester Mudd was a "lost" LucasArts game that had been discovered in that warehouse from the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark after 20 years, I'd believe them. So faithful is this loving tribute to the golden era of adventure gaming. From the goofy jokes to the soothing midi music and charmingly pixelated character design and background art, Fester Mudd is a page right out of point-and-click history. But how does it stand on its own? Just fine. The puzzles are typical adventure fare --- acquire a bunch of weird, random items and figure out how to use them to solve amusingly contrived puzzles. And Fester himself, what's he like? He's very much a wild west Guybrush Threepwood --- penniless, fairly dimwitted and prone to getting himself in trouble. My only complaint is that it's taking them too damn long to release the sequel! Full Review »
