Museum Madness

June 25th, 2009

The local museum has recently been fitted with all new lifelike exhibits. You have to go through each of them with your robot buddy, MICK, to help all of the cyreps (Robotic replicas of historic persons) remember what they are important for. Corny, huh? Anyway, help Thomas Jefferson sign the Louisiana purchase, assist in constructing the radio and help clear a girl’s name in the Salem Witch Trials.

Puzzles 4 out of 5
The game’s full of information and puzzles. Most of them are fairly simple, some of them are actually quite tricky, but others are just annoying. All of the puzzles are fun, though. The hardest puzzle in the game for me, was the sliderpuzzle in the Hall of Ecology. The easiest puzzle, funnily enough, is the last one, where you destroy the virus. If you like puzzles then this game’ll be great for you.
