Description from the packaging.

His ambition was to rule the world... one teenager at a time.

Suddenly you're in the middle of a madcap adventure surrounding a meteor that crashed to the earth some 20 years ago.

Ever since it landed in the back yard of Dr. Fred and Nurse Edna's Victorian mansion, bizarre things have been happening.

First, their mutant son, Weird Ed, dropped out of school.

Then patients started disappearing from County Hospital.

And now this strange event is affecting the lives of innocent (and even some not-so-innocent) teenagers. In fact, a girl named Sandy is being held captive in that musty old mansion right now.

Sandy's boyfriend, Dave, has lots of friends who need your help to sneak in - and sneak her out. Now exactly how it all ends up depends entirely on which trio of friends you send in there. And which inhabitants you encounter.

In fact, the farther you get inside the mansion, the more weird characters you'll meet. There's Nurse Edna - who's as nasty as she is ugly. There's a disembodied Tentacle who wants you to make him a rock star. And a host of others, who all have their own crazy quirks you'll have to deal with.

Everyone in there seems to be working for Dr. Fred. But the question is: "Who is Dr. Fred working for?"

An adventure so compelling, you'll never want to leave...which is just what Dr. Fred wants. "Heh, heh, heh..."
