Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


You've managed to fall asleep in a wax museum, and you've been locked inside for the night. Now you have to find an escape as the wax figures begin to come to life around you. Some spooky moments, but a little too campy to be truly called horror. This is a Scott Adams-era adventure, with all that implies (two-word parser, no description, and heavy nostalgia value). It's not a classic, but it's certainly not terrible either.

-- R. Serena Wakefield
