    Fans of the original will enjoy seeing Lost Wages with high definition backdrops - and may understand more of the jokes if they played it when they were young - but the wit is not nearly as sharp as you remember it. New players, on the other hand, will simply stare at the screen incredulously, wondering why the remake's Kickstarter was embraced so enthusiastically.

Not only did they upgrade the graphics, but they redid a bunch of the puzzles, no more dying, no more running out of money, and they left in the age verification questions.
