Space Quest I: Roger Wilco in the Sarien Encounter

Sierra On-Line, 1991

This is one of those 256-Color remake titles, which were part of Sierra's idea to remake their earlier acclaimed titles. This remake is a significant improvement upon its enhanced version, featuring improved graphics, redesigned animations, sound card support and a true point & click interface. The story is almost the same with slight innovative changes. The evil Sariens have stolen a powerful new thingamabob from the research spaceship Arcada, killing almost everybody aboard except you. Take on the role of inept janitor Roger Wilco and save the universe from destruction. Highly recommended for all adventure game fans, but especially for those who played and enjoyed the original game.
