Homey D. Clown

Synergistic Software, Inc., 1993

One of the most overlooked adventures ever released, Homey D. Clown is a laugh riot, the most popular Daman Wayans' character from the comedy series, "In Living Colors." As Homey D. Clown, who is unhappy with his lot in life, you must land a television show at a popular television station. Help Homey solve puzzles, overcome obstacles and avoid annoying people he meets on the streets of New York, in order to secure the job. While the puzzles are rather simplistic, the graphics and sound are quite good. The best aspect of this colorful adventure, however, is Homey's wit, as he always seems to have some acerbic one-liner poised on his lips. Gameplay is point-and-click, with a combination of adventure and a little arcade. Play this game if you're in a mood to laugh.
